dear young people

Dear Young People,

Please do not write stupid, elitist shit. If you do, you will be rightfully excoriated in public. It might be asshattish of them to publish pictures of you looking coy and unsubstantial, but as you are an asshat yourself, you probably had it coming and probably expected it. And if it's any consolation, you will probably still think that you are better than everyone else and will learn nothing from this experience, at least until you graduate and then realize that employers and graduate school admissions officers will Google the fuck out of you. Or you'll join the Peace Corps, Teach For America, or do something that makes you down with the gente, and then feel abashed and spend the rest of your life hanging with the plebes in penitence. With the sense of irony you gained from your four years of elite education, you may one day look back at this sardonically. Maybe.
