Here’s why Bitstrips are the worst things ever and must be stopped

END this fresh cartoon hell.

LIKE FARMVILLE AND Candy Crush before it, Bitstrips is the new craze on Facebook.

In case you’ve been lucky enough not to notice, Bitstrips is a new app that allows you to make a cartoon avatar of yourself in order to post ‘gas’ comic strips with your friends’ avatars.

We’ve come to the conclusion that they are a force that must be stopped before it’s too late and Aunt Margaret isn’t speaking to you any more because you ignored her Bitstrip requests.

At first, they were slightly amusing. A novelty

It’s yet another way for your parents to mortify you on social media

They provide a platform for a status update even when there’s nothing to say

They make you despise people you thought you knew so well
