Speech Impediment


If you need a perfect example of how the domination of the click-bait headline is really just screwing our culture and its collective intellect without Vaseline, here you go.

Over the weekend, Ashton Kutcher picked up a kind of lifetime achievement award at Nickelodeon's "Dear God Please Send the Angel of Death to Smite Every Tween in the Country" Awards. His acceptance speech for the thing was, admittedly, pretty impressive, attempting to impart upon the crowd of screaming 13-year-old girls a little wisdom on succeeding in life through hard work, persistence, and grace.

Really, it was about four minutes of minor greatness from a guy I normally couldn't give a crap about.

So, what most-important-revelation did the Huffington Post reduce Kutcher's speech to?

This:

The Huffington Post: Ashton Kutcher Reveals His Real Name at Teen Choice Awards/8.12.13

I guess it could've been worse. He could've been wearing something that revealed side-boob.

Yeah, I've grown tired of HuffPo and their slide toward craptasticism. Seems like half their headlines are about which progressive "eviscerated" some conservative in an interview, and the other half, as you pointed out, are pure sideboob.
