The Rebelution Is Over
Update: We’re really sorry for giving you all heart attacks (even though it was really fun reading all your comments)! This post was meant as satire — poking fun at the low expectations our culture has for young people. Finally, it’s probably important to note that Alex and I do not eat Reese’s Puffs.
The Rebelution is shutting down. We’ve made some great memories together, but two teenagers with a blog can’t compete against a behemoth corporate empire like Reese’s Puffs. Now that they’ve started challenging teens to do hard things like “meet someone with your own name” and “pull off the perfect practical joke,” there isn’t much reason for The Rebelution to continue. Reese’s Puffs has the resources and the marketing team to call this generation to a better future — we don’t.
So, while The Rebelution is over, The Reese-olution has just begun. Reese’s Puffs has provided tools we never could have — like the handy checklist below. We believe that it is a complete road-map to God-glorifying teen years and a bright future. We’d encourage you to study it and allow it to reese-olutionize your life.
This list might sound intimidating, but just remember that you have eighteen years to complete it! Even if you don’t start until you’re thirteen, you’re only talking about three things each year. That leaves you plenty of time to eat lots of Reese’s Puffs — the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter flavor.
Goodbye Rebelutionaries. Hello Reese-olutionaries.
