Fuck Fail

To address a new phenomenon, you may have seen these images on the web. They usually depict something comically 'wrong' and then there's this big "FAIL" superimposed on top.


Why say ON the image that something is wrong? If you look at the thing you can decide how 'wrong' or funny it is and then go on your merry way.
Nothing short-circuits a punchline more than GIVING IT AWAY as the joke is being told. Don't they remember the classic tenant of good writing, "Show don't tell"? It's so fucking retarded. Furthermore, most of those images are not THAT funny to being with.

These images are the equivalent of a Dane Cook joke. They are obvious and geared towards people who wear Sketchers, and read USA Today.
