Sure, you are unique, just like the other 7.whatever billion people on this planet. But are you a Special Snowflake? Can you stomach the rigors of demanding attention wherever you go, even in situations that may be considered “inappropriate” or “dangerous”? Can you suspend your ability to discriminate long enough to maintain the profound delusion that the world owes you good fortune, a living, or untold riches… just for being you?
|You know you want it.|
If you answered Yes, you just might be a Special Snowflake.
If your hobbies include gazing fondly in mirrors and meticulously planning every detail of your future life (the one that will happen when you are fabulously wealthy for no logical reason) then you just might be a Special Snowflake. Other pursuits that may provide fulfillment are:
-Decanting your own farts
-Masturbating to images of people who look suspiciously like you
-Pretending to submit your will to gods that promise eternal life for your special snowflake soul
Remember, being a Special Snowflake takes work. You have to earn it. Here is some advice if you want to achieve the pinnacle of Special Snowflakedom:
1. Cultivate ingratitude. Do not, under any circumstances, appreciate what you have! The trademark state of a Special Snowflake is constant, unrelenting, shameless, bitter disappointment in the way everything has turned out. So what if there are people struggling harder than you -- do not rub the sheen off your sacred Special Snowflake self by empathizing with them! Are you able to afford fresh fruit in both wintertime and summertime? Bah, who thinks about that, besides inner city dwellers and ancient Romans? Not you. Time off on the weekends? Ridiculous, as no true Special Snowflake should ever have to do an activity as demeaning as work. Cute boyfriend? Nice, but you’d rather have a celebrity. A nice, rent-free house to live in? That’s nothing. Sofia Coppola’s dad bought her many houses and a directing career. It’s Paris (Hilton) or bust -- if you can’t have the life of a pampered, coke-snorting heiress, you might as well kill yourself. Don’t kill yourself though, because that could make you ineligible for a Special Snowflake Award!
2. Complain, complain, complain. Since you are more intelligent than everyone else, you need to make your dissatisfaction apparent or else those dumbkofs will get the impression it isn’t all about you. On an airplane because a doting relative bought you a trip to Hawaii? Complain about the bad service and cramped seats. Walking through the park with another person? Wrinkle your nose in disgust at a homeless person on a nearby bench. In a restaurant? Threaten to leave because they don’t have an item you want. Be a diva. You’re a star! Getting along is for chumps and poors.
3. Go vegan, and then go back to eating meat. This one is CRUCIAL. In order to convince the world that you are one of a kind, hijack a tiny part of the most important social justice movement of our time and make it about you for as long as you can stand, say six months to a year. You have to do it long enough so you can get much-needed attention and investment from people you can dupe into thinking you have a conscience. The advantage of pretending to be vegan is you can optionally create a blog about your transition, monetize that blog, and then renege on any faux promises you made to the animals, sucking in even more clicks and ad revenue. Don’t forget to pepper the internet with declarations of “I listened to my body and it told me to eat meat” and “I couldn’t live without bacon” so you can appeal to the masses who desperately want to validate their dairy, meat, and egg habits. If you end up gaining weight or getting sick as a result of going back to eating flesh, chicken abortions, and titty squirts, make sure you hide your illnesses as much as you possibly can. Remember, God will give you an afterlife of blowjobs and deep fried chocolate ice cream if you repent at least three seconds before you die, so whatever you do in this life, including atheism, cheating, exploitation, or murder, makes absolutely no difference.
Just a word of warning: Special Snowflakes, especially Special Snowflakes who win awards, age faster than the average Snowflake, mostly because they are so very tired all the time. Colossal, all-consuming, morbid self-interest is an exhausting occupation.
