It's a Ginge Thing

Archive for the tag “jokes”


As a junior in college it’s always hard for me each semester to say goodbye to friends for the summer, but it’s especially hard for me to say goodbye to those who are graduating. When I was a freshman I was placed in a sophomore hallway so majority of my friends are leaving me this year to go out into the real world and start their lives. This year has definitely been one for the books, and I will never forget those people who have impacted my life in the way that they have – plus, I know that during their hectic schedules working 9-5 jobs they will find the time to come back and rage with me at school.

I am dedicating this post to all of my friends that are moving on to do bigger and better things with their lives especially my only ginger friends that are leaving. I’ll miss my friend Jimmy – as much as he has grown to hate me for constantly calling him out on being a ginger, I will miss being able to call him out and embarrass him for being a ginger – I will also miss constantly making him take “ginger pictures” with me…guess I’ll have to recruit some more redheads. Jimmy is one awkwardly funny son of a bitch – like most gingers – and I’ll definitely miss him. My other ginger friend, Hillary, is also leaving me this year. Hillary is a flaming ginger. Her hair is much more red than mine, in fact it’s pretty much a bright shade of orange – one of those gingers. I’ll miss having Hillary around because sometimes it’s beneficial not being the biggest flaming ginger around and I thank her for constantly getting more shit than I do. Hillary and I will always be ginger sisters though. She is so crazy and funny I will miss her tons!

I’m not sure what I’m going to do being the only ginger around next year but hopefully I’ll be able to make friends with some new ones so I’m not the only one in my group of friends being made fun of. Sometimes it’s fun when us gingers are together and people make fun of us because we can make fun of them together for being boring and normal. It’s a little hard to rebuttal solo, but gingers always prevail in the end so I’m not really worried about it.

Good luck seniors everywhere graduating both college and highschool…especially good luck to all the gingers out there who are going to make big things happen and eventually rule the world! :)



Red Hair Don’t Care

I guess you could say I have a problem. As most of you know, or have heard, the season of Lent is among us and it’s safe to say that Christians from all over are treating this sacrificial time period as a second go after they have failed to comply with their new year’s resolutions – but hey, maybe that’s just what I do…along with just about everyone I know including my Jewish friends. So as me and my roommates were brainstorming what we were giving up for this 40 day long period, things such as fast food, candy, chocolate, and ice cream were all thrown around, until everyone suggested I give up being a redhead.

Ummm what? Listen, I’m all for the redhead jokes but at least make sense when you try to make one. I can’t just give up having red hair in fact isn’t that is a smack in God’s face telling him he created something with a stigma? I think the only thing that bothers me more than people who make jokes about my hair is people who don’t know how to be funny when they do it. Maybe if you said something like “give up your soul…oh wait you don’t have one!”, or “you should give up the dream of ever having friends because you are ridiculously gross looking you ginger freak”…I mean obviously those aren’t the best examples but come on, literally anything would be better than saying to “give up being a redhead”.

I guess it all comes down to the fact that I embrace my ginger-freakishness so it doesn’t bother me when people poke fun at me (to certain extents), it bothers me when people are idiots. I guess I could give up my red hair by shaving it off or dying it but hey, who knew?! It would grow right back out just as amazing and fiery-auburn as it has always been! Note to outsiders; if you’re going to insult a ginger who, may I remind you has been getting insulted since birth, you’re going to have to step up your game.

Happy friday my ginger lovers – and as corny as this is, these kids know what’s up.
