Default When you get tagged again and again on social media

Every time a certain bagpipe video makes the rounds, it seems like it gets shared to my feed or I get tagged in it ad nauseum. The garbage bag and recorders bagpipe is getting old quickly, too.

LOL, good one, Twitchy!

But, be polite, act surprised, it's generally well-meaning people who are tagging you on these memes -- thanks mom, thanks auntie, thanks old school chum...

I can't tell you how many times I've been sent videos of a unicycle bagpiper with flames over the years. Yeah, it gets tiring.

I think I've heard just about every bagpiping joke out there at least 3-4 times.

I started out as a tuba player, then took up bagpipes, then banjo, and now I sing as a lyric tenor. Man, I've had EVERY musician joke tossed at me one time or another.

It seems the pic has taken on a viral life of its own in the social media world. Most people get the joke, but, as any viral meme goes, it also has it's small share of sanctimonious pearl clutching and finger wagging.
