'Why I'm dumping you' list goes viral

“You referred to your cockatoo as your baby.”

A breakup letter posted to Imgur last week has now gone viral, making headlines for hilariously listing 20 reasons for a breakup. The list is appropriately titled, “Why I’m Dumping You.”

The author documents 20 obnoxious traits of the dumpee, including “your Taz tattoo” and “you used air quotes when you talked about the moon landing.”

Air-brushed clothing and leather pants were also deal-breakers. The letter ends with a sarcastic send-off: “Have a nice life!”

The text on the 'LETTER' or 'NOTE'   is too small to be readable.

MSN need to hire a media consultant that has technical internet experience

What does  the note "why I'm dumping you" say?

The text is too small to read.

It's funny how people use the word "stupider" even though it's not a real word. *snort* (by the way, I added the snort for affect)

Can all these stupid things even fit into one person!?

The "list" and the "whys" are all superficial....needless...and unnecessary.  When you want to break up...just leave...make sure they never hear from you again. Move on.  They'll get the message.

Clean breaks are like clean incisions during surgeries.  They heal faster!

This list is a fake.  The author should do a new one of things you are stupider than if you believe it's genuine.

    Five months after the Boston Marathon bombing, The Knot reached out to Rebekah Gregory and Pete DiMartino and offered to throw them a dream wedding. They said yes, and on April 4, 2014, the two married at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Rebekah and Pete exchanged vows on the tennis lawn amidst the cherry tree blossoms and then celebrated with all of their friends and family at a beautiful reception tent right in front of the estate. All of the details were perfectly executed by a team of talented and generous wedding industry pros, including celebrity wedding planner Marcy Blum.
