Why No Good Deeds Go Unpunished

Email Sent in by Clancy:

Hey Clancy.

Thanks for writing. I looked at your profile and liked most of what I read. The part I didn't like was the part where you mention that you've done volunteer work for cancer and heart disease charities. You come across as sanctimonious. I'm not going to give you a goddamn gold medal for being a good person.

Here's a clue for you, Clancy: the world is a horrible place. No amount of money or charity or lack of breast cancer or disease will change that. Nature will just find new ways to hate and kill us. I don't need morons like you to tell me how to be better in a world that makes it impossible for me to be better. Live your own life, Clancy! Stop imposing your will on people who don't give a rat's ass, you patronizing dick.



  1. Huh, this comes across as far too well written to be simple trolling.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. People like this is exactly why the world is a horrible place.

  4. I agree with the Gnome; generally the thing horrible human beings hate most is reminders of how awful they are. It causes cognitive dissonance.

  5. ^^^Mindy=major downer. She's jealous cause she doesn't do shit to make the world a better place.

  6. But how cool is Clancy for doing charity work? Bravo!

    1. I don't know. I have friends who do this sort of volunteer work, and while I greatly appreciate them for doing it, there's part of me that also thinks they're enabling a broken system, in that it should ideally always be possible for people to actually get paid reasonably for what they do.
