Meet Tom Flynn. Tom is a bartender from New York City. He is really bad at Jeopardy.

He is also really, really ridiculously good looking. At least, according to the Internet.

Tom was up against Beth Horn, a nanny from Dallas, and Sean Anderson, a professor from Illinois. But no one cared.

The Internet only cares about Tom.

Just look at that face...

He was unable to answer the Final Jeopardy question, but he had the perfect response.

What.

What am I doing here?

What is Jeopardy?

What can we do to get your number, Tom?

Some people just can't take a joke, especially people on Twitter.

Comedian Chris Rock (key word: comedian) tweeted a meme that poked fun at NBA star Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Odom is currently recovering and undergoing procedures for problems linked to his recent drug overdose.

Since the life-threatening incident, Kardashian and Odom have put their divorce on hold.

Here's the comedian's tweet:

A lot of people took the tweet for what it is—a joke. But others were outraged with the timing of the tweet.

Lighten up, Internet. There's probably something else out there you can be upset about.

Bad Joke of The Day: IHOP Tweets Horrible Joke, Immediately Regrets It

Let's stick to making mediocre breakfast, IHOP. Social media isn't for you.

The pancake house is in deep syrup after making a joke on Twitter Sunday that fell...flat.

The reaction to the joke was swift, which likened a stack of pancakes to a women with a flat chest.

But this isn't the first time IHOP has tried variations of misogyny. It looks like the company tweeted about a "butter face" back in March.

It didn't take long for IHOP to tweet out an apology. It almost seems like they knew the backlash was coming.

Hmmm...weird.

Twitter won't take your racism lying down.

It proved as much Oct. 6 after a selfie of a white man with a three-year-old black child, and its very racist comments, went around Facebook.

According to The Huffington Post:



Cayden was at his mother's workplace in Atlanta when a coworker, identified by Atlanta Black Star as Gerod Roth but who uses the online alias of Geris Hilton, snapped an image of himself with the child in the background.

Roth posted the image on Facebook last month, and the comments quickly showed the Internet at its absolute worst. Roth's friends posted racist jokes and hateful commentary, including references to slavery.

"He was feral," Roth wrote in what appears to be his only comment.



Other comments included "I didn't know you were a slave owner", "But massah, I dindu nuffin" and "Send him back dude, those f*ckers are expensive...Like 25 cents a day".

Cayden's mother and grandmother were appalled to see the post from a coworker and wanted to humanize the boy they love. So they started #HisNameIsCayden and Twitter ran with it:









Roth's employer was not happy when they discovered the post:

This morning I was disgusted to learn that one of my former employees made several racially charged comments on his...
