If your cakes look like that, you don't need them.

As a former accidental "influencer" and a Captain Obvious wannabe, let me bring you the very fresh news that "influencers" don't influence anything.

// life's too short for that shiat
/// one fark handle oughta be enough for anyone

I'm very influential...there are thousands of troll bots that watch my every move online. They offer me ED medications and the opportunity to chat with someone named Candy who likes my profile. Very influential...gimme a piece.

People want free stuff all the time.
I find that generally people who have never done something or haven't seen it done in real-time with an understanding of what's going on, tend to undervalue the work that goes into something.
Doesn't matter if it's computer repair, building a deck, or making a cake, if someone doesn't know the nitty gritty they think it's basically easy and free.

I can just imagine the conversation with this person those influencers were having "Why don't you just make a cake and give it to me, it'll be like free advertising for you"

I almost always tune out at the word just when someone starts a pitch like that. 99% of them are like that too.

I had an "influencer" try to ask for a free week in my vacation rental in France. There was no indication in any of their social presence that anyone following them would go out of their way to visit my corner of the Périgord. They just wanted a free vacation.

Fark that.

I've joked around about wanting to become an influencer, but I'm far from a hot chick. Nobody would want to see pictures of me sitting in my inflatable pool drinking regional beers and peeing behind the garage because I'm too lazy to dry off sufficiently enough to go inside.

The three likes I got were from my wife out of pity, and two people I never heard of that probably don't exist.

You want free cake?  Prove to the baker that you actually brought them additional business worthy of the freebie.

You're not fooling anybody with that lie about getting out of the pool to pee, you know.

I won't pee in the pool if I'm in it with other people. That's a little too R. Kelly for me. If it's just me in there, I'll let it rip. It's got a chlorine tab and a filter.

And Frank Zappa's kids are the worst.

This is a long medley, but I've cued it up to Ahmet's appeal for "free shiat".

Gimme some free shiat.
I want a guitar, a bass and some equipment...."
