PinJacking: When I pin something I like, and you turn it into a conversation about something you hate.

One of my favorite blogs, STFU Parents, often posts about MommyJacking, and Pinners have similar behavior. Let’s borrow from that and call it PinJacking (thanks, B!).  Here’s an example:

pinned to Apothecary LOVE by Nikki Dean, curated from These Moments of Mine (this is where the pin is really from, NOT from the site credited on the pin), submitted by Katie Maurizzio (thanks, Katie!)

These colorful (and obviously not real, except for the caps) acorns look like they grew on trees straight out of a Dr. Suessian Utopia, a neighborhood I’d want to live in, and the Pinner probably thought so, too.

…and then we have the commenters. Click on the image to see what I mean.

Maggots in your centerpiece! Maggots in your freezer! Maggots in your oven!

If the pin had been a jar full of painted acorns, I can understand having a conversation about how that may not be such a great idea. But it wasn’t. So keep your maggots to yourself!

    I’m laughing right now because I saw something very similar in this month’s Rachael Ray magazine and actually went to Michael’s over the weekend to buy little Fall colored pom poms to make it. (That was a little embarrassing to write; but sadly, it’s the truth. Ahts ‘n Crafts!) And then I realized I’d have to find a ton of acorn caps and I’ve never actually seen any in my neighborhood…and my dreams were squashed. But now I’m wondering if those elusive caps would have just sprouted maggots anyway. Silver lining! :p
