Reason I'm Going to Hell #41

Because I can't stop laughing at this picture:


(Source Credit: Yahoo News)


Okay. To be fair to me, when I first saw the picture I thought it was a screenshot from a new sci-fi movie involving alien children or something. But then I read the caption and discovered that there is a child in Vietnam WHO ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE THAT. Thanks to the use of Agent Orange by U.S. troops during the Vietnam war. Way to go, U.S.! What a fantastic way to display your military prowess. We are awesome.

So anyway, that's actually a very extremely sad picture and shows what bastards the U.S. can be.

But...I still can't stop laughing. I am a bad, bad person and should immediately be removed from the general population of earth.

Ahhhhh!!! I thought it was like some picture from "The Grudge" too!!!

Ugh. Agent orange. Damn.

That pic totally creeps me out. Quick, post something new so I don't have to look at it any more!! :)

thought it was chernobyl, or maybe Bhopal...yikes

lindsey said...

OMG HAHA Shit that totally looks photoshopped!

The Ruler said...

Not to worry child, you are not going to Hell. Take my Word for it; I would know.

This was God

Robert said...

I doubt it. It's probably photoshop. The "kid" would be at least 21-years-old by now. Plus, our own soldiers were doused with the stuff and haven't produced alien children.

I will not laugh...I will not laugh...I will not laugh...oh god, I'm going to hell! I can't STOP laughing!

Robert - I totally thought it was photoshopped too, until I looked into it more. It's something about how Agent Orange seeped into all of their food and water sources, so these people have been ingesting it and exposed to it for 30 years, and the exposure is affecting the babies in utero more than it ever did the adults that were directly exposed. Scary stuff...

BUT STILL FUNNY AS HELL.

Midwest girl you most certainly are the devil. Thanks for the comment on the Stupidityonparade blog.

Bags packed for a guilt trip - I laughed too, at first.

Thanks for coming by my blog. Glad you liked the Puke quote. ;) TJ had a way with words.

damn, that's sad....USA A-OK

Molly said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

I too thought that picture was doctored up or the cover of some trashy amgazine proclaiming alien life. I feel badly that I was SO far off...poor child!

Don't be so Midwestern, jesus. It's not funny.

Yikes. I thought that was photoshopped. Or from a new alien movie.

I'm goin to hell too... I totally laughed too.

Uncle Jay said...

Damn it,

I was hoping that picture wouldn't have come out. Now I bet that damn kid is wanting some child support.

You can't prove nothing and besides I pulled out of her way early.

lindsey said...

I'm so happy I'm not an Agent Orange baby. I'd never get laid.

Anonymous said...

Normally, I'd post under my own name, but I fear my safety for saying this and being recognized for it...

But it looks like the kid is catching a view of himself in the mirror for the first time.

Jelly said...

Maybe I didn't find it funny because I didn't find it believable. Or maybe I'm just tired. Either way, sucks to be him.

Allen said...

horrible...however it looks funny and it seems like a fake picture... i liked it...you should have seen the news at the time of viet nam...they would show Buddist Monks pouring gas on themselves and then lighting themselves up in protest of the war....they just burned and shriveled up like an old magazine..no sound out of them at all ...it was horrifing....

Bridget Unnel said...

Aw jeez -- that picture is still up. New post please -- I feel like a turd for laughing yesterday. If there's any chance it is real, I'm a shit for seeing the humor in it.

Geez said...

I'll tell you what would be funny, if you use your new ninja skills with Photoshop and the Agent Orange Baby accompanied the AMG on all of her wacky adventures (the show, the hotel, the after party, the trip to china etc....).

scott c said...

For the love of all things holy, please post something new!!!

Don't make me go all toolbox on your ass.

Note: I'm just using my disgust to veil my AMG withdrawal (knowwhatimsayin?).

Are you telling me not to be so Midwestern, or Jesus? Cause Jesus is totally Midwestern.

Anonymous said...

You are going to hell.
Oh yes.

But on a more important topic, who are these other people commenting anonymously?
I don't like it!

It's just you and me anonymous round here, ok AMG?

Hmmm, "ChinaDaily" gets its stories from Reuters, very very odd dontcha know? I put my arm up to save my watch because the sh?t is getting mighty deep here! If not I'll be going to hell along with you!

Jenni said...

That's OK, you can totally pick me up on your way down. I too, laughed hysterically at that picture. I thought it was fake at first, and then when I found out it was real, I felt really bad, yet not bad enough to not snicker when I looked at it agian. I suck.
