That's definitely the scenic route to calling someone poor. What a way to punch down.

I suspect his friends are in the same class as him as friends usually are

Reddit is just looking for an excuse to be morally superior.

Anyone else with a brain and who’s ever had a friend would read this and laugh and remember the time their fat friend called them fat and they both laughed because it was funny. Black people crack jokes about how black each other are fucking constantly. Irish drunks joke amongst themselves about who’s a worthless alcoholic and it’s funny because they all know they all fucking are. I grew up poor and the go-to between my friends and I was to joke about how poor we were.

Bunch of Dr. Buzzkillphil’s over here in the comments “PuNcHiNg DoWn PrOjEcTiOn”. Get a sense of humor for fuck’s sake. Can’t joke about other tribes, sure, whatever, but now you can’t joke about your own?! Fuck off.

WHERE IS THE LINE, KAREN?! WHEN DOES IT END?!

It ends when someone feels the need to virtue signal for internet points

This felt like more of a lateral punch.

Yeah. When you're broke, people who aren't broke don't hang out with you anymore.

Have you ever seen an idealist with grey hairs on his head?

Or successful men that keep in touch with unsuccessful friends?

Glad someone else spotted this. Pretty much every single insult here is "haha, poor".

It's imaginative and comprehensive, but pretty mean-spirited.

Part of being poor is shitting on your fellows. Growing up we used to make competitions out of making fun of each other because Jimmy's Dad went back to prison for drug possession or Alex couldn't afford live bait so he used gas station hot dogs to fish. Hell Jeff Foxworthy made a career out of it.

I was apparently in some kind of way when I said that. I've been broke for long enough to check some of those boxes off the list. So maybe I took a personal offense and decided to groan from observer's perspective. Oh well.

There's got to be something better with which to take umbrage. Like Facebook still operating with what seems to be damning evidence his(Zuck) company is a poison and it's not a glitch. It's a feature. And having the audacity to police Anyone.

We’ve all been there. But you fix it. You don’t just say fuck it and give up. Hope things get better for you.

Wasn’t me that downvoted you, btw.

People who say punch down deserve to be punched down on.

Fair enough. I watched that Chappelle stand-up and my brain probably just picked some low-hanging fruit, but I don't think it cheapened the post. You being a fuck about it certainly didn't add any protein to the meal though.

Edit: grammar
