Behold, Le Chicken Shop Connoisseur. This kid was destined for great things, and now he's definitely accomplishing them. What a gig.
The other day we wrote about White Supremacists on Reddit boycotting Rogue One. Apparently as soon as they make a few Star Wars movies that aren’t about a white dude realizing he’s special, it’s time to #DumpStarWars.
Well, things got even worse, or better if you are opposed to things like racism, sexism, xenophobia, and hatred, when Rogue One-screenwriter Chris Weitz posted this picture to Twitter and indicated that Star Wars was actually about a group of rebels fighting an oppressive, authoritarian government whose philosophy is built on fear.
Star Wars against hate. Spread it. pic.twitter.com/Dtf5uqpxba— Chris Weitz (@chrisweitz) November 11, 2016
Calls for boycott shot up on Twitter because the idea of fighting an authoritarian government is bad?
Anyway, no one’s really taking these calls to action on Twitter that seriously. Why? Because it's Star Wars and no matter how many times we're burned by these movies, we’re still going to see them.
Enjoy some of the best reactions to the Star Wars boycott
Look, it's been proven time and time agan: Listen to your girlfriends. It's really easy. If you listen to them, gross things won't happen. If you don't listen to them a bunch of gross stuff explodes in your face and she writes about it on Twitter.
No one wants that
That’s the story of Twitter user Sarah Gailey, who politely asked her boyfriend not to touch a small plastic egg. What was the outcome? Well, they broke up, she wrote about it on Twitter, and he’s embarrassed. Don't be that guy. Listen to your girlfriends.
You can read the whole story here. Trust us. It’s worth it.
Quick impression of Twitter this morning:
"Ah! What a beautiful morning. I’ll just roll over and look at my phone. Oh, look at that, TIME picked their person of the year, and it’s… Oh, would you look at that? That billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month is TIME’s person of the year? You don’t say. Well, back to bed for me for the next four years."
While we sleep through the next four years or until our president-elect Tweets out that somehow the Person of the Year honor he won was rigged somehow, enjoy what Twitter had to say. They weren’t really sure how to deal with it either.
Check out Twitter's best reactions to the Person of the Year, and enjoy how President-elect Trump has enjoyed TIME in the past:

Have you ever been so hungry that you can only speak in pictures? Have you ever been so hungry that you can type the full word “hamburger”?
Well, you’re time is here, because as of now, you can search Google using emojis — with a few caveats. It’s not like you can just go to Google and put in an emoji burger. You have to do it through Google’s Twitter page. Simply Tweet an emoji to @Google, and they’ll respond with a corresponding search result. It’s that easy.
So basically, if you want to see what the best burger is in town, simply send them a burger emoji, and they send back some suggestions.
Mashable says, “Google says the feature will work with over 200 different emoji for food, sites and activities near you. It's also promising some ‘easter eggs.’”
This news is both good and scary, depending on your feelings regarding the peach and eggplant emojis. Proceed with caution.
Everyone in America knows that laptops grow on trees, and there’s no greater proof of this than the TSA’s massive collection of laptops.
The TSA tweeted last week that about 70 laptops — mostly expensive MacBooks by the looks of it — that were left behind at security. Whatever, these people will just walk over to the magic laptop tree and grab a new laptop.
People are regularly doing things like that. Mashable reports, “In a 2014 story, Capital Public Radio in Sacramento, California, reported that roughly 20,000 items, each priced at $500 or more, were left at checkpoints around the country. Those items eventually get sent to TSA's Virginia headquarters, while less valuable objects make their way to re-sale shops.”
If you’re one of the few people who cannot just walk over to the laptop tree and pick a new laptop, there are steps you can take. In addition to sending a message to the TSA on Twitter at or Facebook, you can call their Lost & Found. Just in case you forgot your loaded gun or fingernail thingy.
We’re about a month out from the election and the transition into a country run by a billionaire reality TV game show host has not been, uh, smooth. When he’s not Tweeting about SNL, making casual calls to Taiwan, or lying about voter fraud, Trump has been disappointing some of his biggest supporters. For the majority of the country, over 65 million voters, who did not vote for Trump, this would be the chance to say “I told you so,” but we’re all in this together now, and, hoo, boy, we better start getting along.
Still, that doesn’t mean the popular voters can’t have a little fun. So in the spirt of “I told you so,” here comes Trumgrets, a running tumblr of people regretting their vote last month. Not much to it than that, but just like the buyer’s remorse here, you get what you paid for.
