With all of the white-knuckle reversals taking place in US political scene at the moment, the situation calls for some levity.
In his ongoing series called ‘Ultra Spiritual Life’, comedian JP Sears is known for his side-splitting spoofs of New Age sanctimoniousness.
This piece takes us to Instagram territory and into the specific genre of bikini selfies posted by Z-List non-celebrities seeking the D-List status that was pioneered by Kim Kardashian and which has been proliferated into near-ubiquity by ingenues and matrons, with a pervasive and nauseating trend toward massive butt implants.
Sears offers us general “Pro Tips” for success in social media engagement and some specific tips for this particular genre, where the prime directive is, “To practice thong-based self-objectification.”
I’ll reveal my age by saying that I don’t have an Instagram account (let alone a Snapchat) and that I only know of this genre from my search engine-driven forays into the Mirror online, which drives further traffic within its site with this peculiar brand of Narcissistic Personality Disordered, Body-Dysmorphia-affirming content – and occasional fillips of hypocritical virtue-signalling thrown in for good measure.
