Because so much of it is so depressing and draining. Or very convoluted (like politics). It just adds too much negativity to one's life sometimes. And thus: I understand that the Internet demographic is more skewed towards a younger audience, but this is just hilarious. We really do like our beautiful famous people that are a part of our entertainment consumption...because hey, entertainment is part of our joy and happiness, and is not a turnoff like trying to make sense of political bickering.
