Danbury Mocked on Social Media for Robbery and Murder
"It's not what you say, it's how you say it."
That is what I was told growing up, and I found that this used to be true. Now, it's the opposite. We cracked the internet social media cheat code, just say a town and add the word "murder" and you'll get results.
A TikTok user that goes by the name @johnnyadventure uploaded a video on July 15 with a reference to Danbury and some crime stats. This is the video below.
If you could not see it, it says Danbury CT murders - 4, Robbery - 40 and Assault - 45.

I'm not a comedy expert, but I feel like murders are the best way to get a laugh. Don't get me wrong, I'm not eliminating murder, I'm just putting it way down toward the bottom of the list of comedic topics.
Not that long ago my wife was trying to explain something to me about social media. She said it's not as complicated as you make it, things don't have to "be good" for them to work. You don't have to "try so hard", you just need to do things that are similar to other things that work.
You see, I was confused, I thought the keys to victory were: attempting to do a good job, caring about the result and make something entertaining. I was wrong, all you need to do is mention specific towns/cities and people click on your content. So, if you see the quality of my work fall off, it's because the internet doesn't value quality. Just write "murder" and the name of someone's town, and your video will work too.
P.S. My wife is not the bad guy here, she's just the pragmatic one in the relationship. She doesn't attempt to change what is not in her control. I try and get reality to submit to what I think it should be.
