Woman’s Religious Aunt Shares Pot Meme, Blocks Her Niece When She Points It Out

Some parents are so worried about their kids doing drugs, but at the same time, they probably couldn’t even identify pot or pot paraphernalia if it bit them in the face. I’ve known people whose moms have used bongs as vases. These people are clearly very square.

A Twitter user going by @hoarsewhisperer asked on Friday what were the dumbest reasons people had been blocked by someone else on the social media platform.

He went first, stating that his best dumb reason was a tie between not liking a Taylor Swift song and quoting Notorious B.I.G. lyrics.

That’s pretty good, but Twitter user @laurenprealtor has got him beat.

She revealed that she’d been blocked by a very religious aunt for letting the aunt know that she was sharing a pot meme.

Hoarsewhisperer approved whole-heartedly:

Someone else pointed out that people unknowingly sharing pot memes thinking the buds were some other type of plant is not unlike when people think pictures of actor Ewan McGregor in the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi are supposed to be representations of Jesus.

And lo and behold, @laurenprealtor has actually been blocked for that, too!

When someone made the observation that her family was “touchy,” she responded that her in-laws are “EXTREMELY religious & very social media illiterate.” That, my friends, is a dangerous and ignorant situation.

Someone asked if her mother-in-law knew who Tommy Chong (of Cheech and Chong) was, since he was the one who’d posted the pot meme, and @laurenprealtor responded, “LOL, obviously not.”

Please, someone keep this woman’s in-laws away from the internet!
