Snark on Pinterest

One thing that truly surprises me is the lack of snark on Pinterest, especially considering the pins and commentary are all public.  When I'm having a bitchy day myself, it's so hard not to jump in and write back. I want to bring a bit of honesty to the medium. I want to get on there and go "really? REALLY?!"

Hey pinner, I bet you're not really "Making this ASAP!" You're probably just snugged on your couch pushing "refresh pins". That's not ASAP. Get cooking.

That marinated vegetable salad does NOT look delicious, you fibber.

I sincerely doubt your half baked exercise routine produced that exquisitely tan, toned tummy you have used as the pin picture.

Adding boatloads of food colouring to your kids food to make it "exciting" is not a good parenting decision.

And don't get me started on the "OMG so CUTE!!1! ^.^ Squee!" people insist on writing on their nail art photos. It's fancy paint on dead skin. Go do something constructive like solving world hunger, or blogging something. Geez.

I could go on for hours.

I realise I'm probably the only person in the universe who has these evil Pinterest commenting compulsions. Better call the men in white coats.

I'll snark them, too.


  1. bbbaaahhhaaaa, I snarked, once and once only......and about ten million pinterest people snarked me that was hilarious!

  2. Pinterest is just pure fantasy for me. Clothes I'll never own, food I'll never cook, houses that will always be tidier and better styled than mine. I didn't know anyone tried to be pretend their real life is like Pinterest. That way lies madness.

  3. Hilarious, though I still love Pinterest (even if I can't work it out). I thought it was an inspiring public pin-up board then was surprised to see people can 'like', 'comment' or 'follow' you etc like a social networking platform. So confusing for the technically challenged.

  4. Hallelujah and Amen! I once had the temerity to say I thought a tattoo was something the tattoo-ee may regret later in life. You would have thought I had suggested exterminating a whole nation! That said, I LOVE Pinterest and it adds to my fantasy world of all the things that might-have-been and could-possibly-be!

  5. Ha ha haaa!!!
    Lots of sillyness there, but also lost of pretty en great ideas :-D

  6. You crack me up. Yes, I will admit, I am sitting on the couch under the blanket while I pin summer things at the moment:)

  7. Bwhwhahahahaha! You crack me up. I am not on Pinterest but I remember back when I was on Facebook I used to do a lot of big sighing at status updates. DID the greater community benefit from knowing what they had for breakfast? I don't think so lol

  8. Wow! Glad I haven't gotten sucked into the Pinterest vortex...Of course I only have fb because my husband gave me an account!

  9. Tee hee, i try to steer clear of Pinterest - looking at other people's pins, where do people find the time, but i set up Pinterest for myself & the followers pour in, how, why?? But i understand what you're talking about & agree on every point. Yes, why do people try to make out that cooking & exercise is a breeze, when clearly they do it often & dedicatedly.
    Now make those mussels & tell me all about how you just threw it together without a second thought other than taste!! Weather in Canberra lovely all weekend, only windy & i'm taking care of my precious throat. Love Posie

  10. Hahaha! This is hilarious!!! I want to read more posts just this! Haven't succumbed to pinterest - facebook, instagram and a little of twitter is more than enough for me! xx

  11. Hellllooooooo where are you? Is all well at your home...???? I miss you!

    1. I'm here! Just recovering from a quick trip to Perth... I'll probably blog this arvo, if I get the laundry finished... *sigh*
