Emo Gas

25 Jul

Why do these gas stations crack me up so much?:

“the price of gas makes me wanna die…”

Because I’m pretty sure that the people behind the name had no idea that “Emo” was a descriptive term for an ultra-hip music subgenre and fashion style characterized by depressed teens with eye-obsuring hairstyles singing punk derived songs about death and suicide and other depressing angst-ridden melodrama.

I laugh everytime I drive past one of these stations thinking that I’d go inside and find some kid sneering at me through his bangs saying something like “you know you’re gonna kill us all with climate change driving that gas guzzling machine out there…”
