This is Dour Kitty, who made his first appearance over a year ago. I give one to five Dour Kitty Points to things I find unpleasant.
Today I’m giving FIVE Dour Kitties to Vapid People. I’m not specifying who they are, but I’m sure you know some. Fortunately, I have no Vapid People in my immediate world, but they do creep in on the fringes.
Vapid People frequent gyms, hair colorists, and tanning salons where their brains have been jiggled and fried until they no longer function properly. They are focused on GTL to the exclusion of everything else. Their royalty includes Snooki and the Situation, Paris, Kardashians and other celebrities who’s only discernable talent is being a celebrity.
Vapid people “read” magazines that are full of pictures of these celebrities so they can go buy the clothes, handbags and jewelry they can’t afford in order to emulate the celebrities. They go into debt for these things so they can take pouty photos of themselves wearing them in the mirror to post on Facebook.
Their conversation is about how they look, how other people look, and how they think people should look. People famous for being famous are used as the yardstick by which this should be measured.
The remainder of their time is spent in clubs, where they try to drown any brain cells that might still be functioning on some level, in a sea of alcohol. This, of course, is after the spray-on tan is dry.
