One of the things I pride myself in is that I’ve rarely made an abject fool of myself in a way that has been documented on the internet. This sounds like a low bar, I know, but it really does feel like an achievement when there are so many out there who can’t make that claim. I’m not one to jinx things however, and I’m sure there are people out there that would disagree with my assessment (I love my fans).
When it comes down to it, cringe is in the eye of the beholder. There could be things in this list that we find so mortifying that we’re ready to just stop existing — but the individuals who put them out there may have thought they were perfectly reasonable. A necessary way of expressing themselves, even. Still, they are embarrassing and perhaps offensive to the majority. Being alive is inherently cringe, but we don’t have to take it this far.
