The Happy Voyeur

Let's talk a little bit about the voyeur in all of us, shall we? The word voyeur is defined by Merriam Webster.com as, "one who habitually seeks sexual stimulation by visual means". But I'm not referring to that kind of voyeur today. Sorry pervs.

Today I am referring to the kind of voyeur defined as, "a prying observer who is usually seeking the sordid or the scandalous". I feel quite confident saying that everybody, at one time or another, seeks the "sorid or the scandalous". It's human nature. Like it or not we are all members of a "train wreck mentality" society, so curious we find ourselves unable to look away. Sometimes to our detriment.

And you know you've done it.....

And you know someone who's told you about a situation they saw or overheard....

That's what makes this so funny.

Nawwwww no way would I leave that about to happen train wreck. I would just have to see how it ended, even if it involved me. Good prank though.

In a similar vein though real... if you haven't seen this allow me to try and addict you to something that's been going on for a while now that isn't a prank. It's spread to a lot of cities since but this is the original one...

Overheard In NY.

I lived with a dude in college whose last name was "Vorrier". It was pronounced the same way.

He once got caught jerking off in the showers. Someone once made a joke about how his last name is, essentially, "voyeur", and one of my friends was like "you don't know the half of it"

They wouldn’t allow the video to play in my country. This always happens to me…damn it.

If we weren’t a voyeuristic society The Enquirer, TMZ, and even Facebook wouldn’t exist.

He should act like he's on the phone waiting for his blind date to show up, talk about how gorgeous she looks online and how he can't wait to meet her, then describe himself as someone next to him that looks like a hotmess.
