Hilarious song about having 'no more f***s to give' is a battle cry we can all relate to

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.

Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. perfectly encapsulates this feeling in a song he released last year on his debut album "Awkward Encounters While Walking My Dog" called "I've No More F***s To Give."

Played on a banjolele — a combination of a banjo and ukulele popular in the England Dance Hall days of the 1900s — it's a song about trying to accomplish something in life, coming up and empty, and reaching the point where you're blissfully over it.

Wild is an English singer who's been performing around the UK for the past three years. According to his website, his debut album reached number 3 in the Billboard Comedy Albums Chart, and features a collection of original satirical songs about the modern world delivered with good old fashioned style, wit, and wisdom.

You can hear more of his music on Spotify.

"I've No More F***s To Give"

I've tried, tried, tried, and i've tried even more

I've cried, cried, cried, and I can't recall what for

I've pressed, I've pushed, I've yelled, I've begged

In hopes of some success

But the inevitable fact is that it never will impress!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have runneth dry

I've tried to go fuck shopping but there's no fucks left to buy!

I've no more fucks to give

Though more fucks I've tried to get

I'm over my fuck budget, and i'm now in fucking debt!

I strive, strive, strive, to get everything done

I've played by all the rules, but I've very rarely won

I've smiled, I've charmed, I've wooed and laughed, alas to no avail

I've run round like a moron, to unequivocally fail!

I've no more fucks left to give

My fuck fuse has just blown

I've been hunting for my fucks all day but they've upped and fucked off home!

I've no more fucks to give

My fuck rations are depleted

I've rallied my fuck army but it's been fucking defeated!

The effort has just not been worth the time or the expense!

I've exhausted all my energy, for minimal recompense!

The distinct lack of acknowledgement has now begun to gall!

And I've come to realize that I don't give a fuck at all!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have flown away

My fucks are now so fucked off they've refused to fucking stay!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have gone insane

They've come back round and passed me while they're fucking off again!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have all dissolved

I've planned many projects, but my fucks won't be involved!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have all been spent

They've fucked off from the building and I don't know where they went!

In 1945, the world had just endured the bloodiest war in history. World leaders were determined to not repeat the mistakes of the past. They wanted to build a better future, one free from the "scourge of war" so they signed the UN Charter — creating a global organization of nations that could deter and repel aggressors, mediate conflicts and broker armistices, and ensure collective progress.

Over the following 75 years, the UN played an essential role in preventing, mitigating or resolving conflicts all over the world. It faced new challenges and new threats — including the spread of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, a Cold War and brutal civil wars, transnational terrorism and genocides. Today, the UN faces new tensions: shifting and more hostile geopolitics, digital weaponization, a global pandemic, and more.

Who would have thought that giving the world access to all human knowledge via the internet, the ability to follow and hear from experts on any subject via social media, and the ability to see what's happening anywhere in the world via smartphones with cameras would result in a terrifying percentage of the population believing and spouting nothing but falsehoods day in and day out?

Those of us who value facts, reason, and rational thought have found ourselves at some of our fellow citizens and thinking, "Really? THIS is how you choose to use the greatest tool humanity has ever created? To spew unfounded conspiracy theories?"

It's a marvel, truly.

Between Coronavirus/Bill Gates/5G conspiracies and QAnon/Evil Cabal/Pedophile conspiracies, I thought we were pretty much full up on kooky for 2020. But apparently not. The massive fires up and down the West Coast have ignited even more conspiracy theories, some of which local law enforcement and even the FBI have had to debunk.

I worked as a substitute teacher in my early 20s, almost exclusively in middle schools and high schools—my age of specialty. Once, I accepted a two-day subbing assignment in a first grade classroom. Only once. Halfway through the first day, as the kids ate lunch in the cafeteria, I sat at the teacher's desk in an exhausted daze. Teaching little kids was a completely different animal than teaching big kids. While adorable, they had so many needs and so little attention span. It was like herding a bunch of flies that constantly needed to go potty.

Trying to herd those flies virtually during a pandemic is too much to even fathom.

So the real-time story that mom and writer Stephanie Lucianovic shared on Twitter of what happened when her son's second grade teacher dropped from the class Zoom call was not the least bit surprising. Hilariously entertaining, but not surprising.

Dear JK Rowling,

I am writing this letter to say a big thank you to you. You may think it strange that a gobby trans woman such as me would wish to thank you after all your recent transphobic outpourings, but let me explain…

I certainly don't thank you for your lengthy essay last month where you describe the abuse you have suffered (for which you have my sympathy) and in which you stated that you do not hate trans people, while at the same time peddling even more anti-trans mis-information. Sadly, your diatribe directly caused some trans children to self-harm and other to attempt suicide.
