Set the critique meters to "scathing"

Here's a song subtly critiquing high school romances. Or praising them. It's tough to tell.

Also, why do the words "scathing" and "critique" go together so often? Who decided that one?

An Insult

Yesterday, my parents worked together on a zinger for me:

Me: I’ll watch Thor all by myself, and then come back and reenact it for the whole family.
Isaac: I don’t think you’re as buff as Thor is.
Me: I beg to differ.
Mom: Oh, there’s no need. We all know you and Thor differ...
Dad: ...and you don’t need to beg for it.

See? It’s a perfectly choreographed one-two punch. I’d be insulted if I weren’t so proud of them.
