The word Emo is short for “emotional”. It represents a type of music, personality, and fashion. Typically Emos are very sad and angry. They like to have their hair in front of their face (to hide their tears?). Emos like to wear old and beat up clothes (to conform to non-conformity?). Usually they are very shy and introverted (ashamed of their stupid hair?). Emos also listen to music with themes of confusion, depression, and loneliness (ashamed of their stupid hair?).
So what do Emos do to help hold back the tears and avoid their dark eyeliner from running? No, they don’t use waterproof eyeliner. They EAT NACHOS!
There are two pieces of evidence that help us make this conclusion:
- According to the Urban Dictionary, “Emo Food” is described as “Taco Bell at about 2:30pm (when school gets out).” No they are not eating Gorditas. Emo Food is “Nachos split 6 ways.”
- Emo band Taking Back Sunday prepared for the long and grueling road of being on tour with a strict fitness program and diet. The gym? Strict vegan diet? Basically, their training regimen consisted of one thing: nachos.”
Suddenly being Emo is starting to sound interesting to us…
Ok now we all want to be Emo. If being Emo will get us on a rock band where we can tour the country and eat nachos, THEN SIGN US UP!
I’ve already started growing out my bangs since the start of this article, I’ve text-messaged my girlfriend to make sure she saves me some dark eyeliner, I’m planning on going to Savers after work to buy myself some old Chuck Taylor’s, I’ve bought 2 Death Cap For Cutie CDs on Amazon, and I’m even starting to feel a little bit angry and depressed. I can’t wait until my Emo transformation is fully complete.
