Best Troll Ever of the Day: Parents Against Reprehensible Metal Music
When reader Victor G.A. alerted us to the existence of a website with the URL stopheavymetalmusicnow.org, we were, needless to say, upset (y’know, the way people feel the first time they hear about metalsucks.net). When we clicked through to the website, our sadness grew exponentially: it appeared to be for a group called Parents Against Reprehensible Metal Music, or PARMM, whose goal is to save “all of our children from what is certainly one of the greatest cultural epidemics in recent history.”
But then we noted the ridiculous slogan and the very bizarre advertisement for Gladys Montgormery, “Southland’s Real Estate Queen,” who is also the founder of the group. And then we clicked through to the section of the website called “Ask Glady,” in which parents could seek advice from Ms. Montgomery on how to best annihilate the ills of heavy metal. And then our sadness abated: this is clearly a joke.
So kudos to Victor, or whomever made this. You only had us fooled for a moment, but the punchline was hilarious nonetheless.
