The Ogre by Clayton Smith

Social Snobbery of the Rich
Through the misty forest and down a cave winding deep withing the Terror Mountians you will find the lair of the..........hey, it's empty! That's right folks, your lovable Ogre is moving into a new domain......errrr, appartment....as it were. Much cheaper!

I once again want to apologize to everyone for my absence but I've been working on a film with some friends and it's been quite time-consumming. Now with that out of the way I believe that is about damned time for some of you people out there to hear me rant a bit and I'm going to start with something that has plagued mankind for quite some time and that would be a group or organization of people: The elitist rich, or whatever, call them what you will, snobs, yuppies....and their offspring.

These individuals have made life for us hard-working folk hell for as long as anything has been notably written or remembered. I personally view these individuals as corrupt bags of flesh and are completely worthless, rude, uncaring, and most of all the purest form of all evil next to the Tele-Tubbies! The reason behind bringing these braggarts up is soley because I have seen in just that past few weeks their numbers growing, mainly arround the Hyde Park area, but also intruding on my territory (the reason I'm having to move!!!!) and the territory of others. They destroy all that is good just to make more room to build larger houses and condos to make more money and pollute, decay, and violate our enviroment. The worst of the whole group, in my opinion, are their kids, raised with no sense of what money really is, how to earn their keep, or any other relevant morals! They stick in groups, much like wolves do, but instead of hunting for food or protection they hunt to terrorize those who have very little defense of self-esteem, just so they can inflate their egos a bit more and brag about how they've torn down more of said person's emotional protective barriers.

The Blockbuster Video Incident
    Now for example, just the other day I was in Blockbuster Video visiting a friend of mine when about 10:30pm two blonde females came walking in, dressed in an evening attire you would normally see someone wear to a formal dinner, laughing to each other, looking for some movies. Just about 25 seconds later, two regular "Joes Schmoes" came walking by; as soon as they entered one of the girls turned around and asked one of the guys if she knew him.
    She continued asking about two more times then exclaimed, "Oh wait, that's right, I wouldn't know a loser like you!".
    Seeing this, I felt as if I should intervene.........so I did. Bumping into the girls I looked at the shorter of the two, the same that made one of our own feel like he should never have existed, and said, "Hey, I know you......yeah, you went to Plant [High] last year didn't you!?!"
    Somewhat startled and surprised she asked how I knew her. I loudly replied, "You were the chic who gave my friend and the rest of the varsity football team a blowjob! Not to mention gave hummers to half the basketball team!"
    With this, her friend interrupted, telling me off the best she could until I told Tart number two to take a hike before I posted her drunken party pics all over the internet!

Now normally saying something like that would just piss someone off, but hitting the nail on the head really does hurt because apparently there were photos of her floating around somewhere from a party she had recently attended! Now with all this said and done I sent them on their way crying back to their pampered little homes and was cheered on by other customers and my friend who worked at the video store. I completely forgot where I was going with all of this, but I think if you have money, you can at least have the common decency to raise your children better or raise your children, period! Look back to your roots and around to your fellow man or woman. We're all human....... but we all have to live close to one another, so we might as well make the best of it!

Now with all of that vented out of my system I would also like to add that not all wealthy people are this way, but they are few and far between. All said and done you can either help me with my stuff or you can get the Hell OUT!!!!!

Love always,
Your newly neighborhood Ogre
