I can’t help but feel a little guilty for letting my first-ever tweet about ‘Trophies’ get so out of hand.
A quick search of Twitter reveals countless examples of people who have used the word “trophies” in a derogatory way.
And now that I’m finally ready to be the one to write it down, I’m ready to share a little secret: There are no “tropic thunder” “tricks.”
These are just words that are used by people who are genuinely trying to be funny.
But they’re not.
These are not words that have been invented by a single person or a small band of people.
They are words that I wrote and I am still working on.
As I mentioned before, I am not a journalist, and my tweet was a joke.
But I do know that there are people out there who are trying to create the phrase and have it be a way to make fun of someone.
And that’s a shame.
I wrote the phrase on a whim, and I’m proud to have contributed to that conversation.
It’s funny, but not funny enough.
We are not talking about people who make a point of using the word as a way of making fun of a specific person, but the same can be said about people using it as a word to call out an entire industry.
The phrase “tropic thunder,” for all its many meanings, is really just a word.
And if you want to call it out, it’s up to you.
I don’t think you need to make a fuss about whether or not it’s a good word or not.
The thing is, it has a certain kind of power that you can’t change.
And so if you use it to make jokes, you’re essentially saying, “I’m not going to laugh at this person.”
But if you say, “Look, I think this is a real problem.
They’re just using this term to get attention,” then you are saying, “…you can’t be a jerk about it.”
It’s a little ironic that a person who is so dedicated to getting people to like and respect him or her is now calling it out as a form of bullying.
The funny thing is that it seems to work pretty well.
The more people who use it, the more it is used.
That’s the funny thing.
You have to be careful about how you use the word.
I know it can be a lot of fun to have your own hashtag.
But you can only use it as an invitation to others to use it too.
When you’re talking about someone who has the power to define who you are and what you’re capable of, you are going to want to use a phrase that you think will get the job done.
And it’s OK to be a little silly with the word, too.
You’re also going to have to think carefully about how the word is being used.
And the more people you think use the phrase, the better.
So, the next time you’re having a conversation about a particular person or company, remember to remember that it’s your right to be as you want.
