Country music is a pretty polarizing genre - and most polarizing subjects are ripe for memein'. Get a load of these twangy treats.
It's no secret that people love to hate on PETA, but today that pastime is more popular than ever. The hardcore animal rights association took to Twitter yesterday to fight against what they call "anti-animal language" - and provided a handy chart on how to substitute ancient aphorisms with more animal-friendly terminology. The chart, as you can imagine, is wholly ridiculous.
Twitter users were quick to jump on PETA for suggestions like "Feed two birds with one scone" in lieu of "Kill two birds with one stone." Their trolling attempts have been ridiculously entertaining. We've included some of our favorite tweets, but for even more fun you can peruse the thread here.

Extra, extra read all about it! Another celebrity drinks alcohol and has fun. There's your story TMZ eat your heart out.

And with that many award nominations, if she wasn't partying that hard, we'd suspect something is up.
But this has also launched a new trending meme of her various freeze frame moves caught on camera. So sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best creations of the night to remember, and stay tuned for the next Swifty moment that is bound to come after the VMAs.
A number of websites have done articles all about the celebration and memes that have already done about it, and you can find them here:
It’s been shown time and time again that if you show the internet a big, white sign, they’re going to do whatever they want with it.
Need I remind you of this stupid thing:
I didn’t think so. Well, someone should’ve reminded Senator Bernie Sanders, the guy who all your most annoying friends insist “would’ve won." Yes, Sen. Sanders printed out one of President-elect Donald Trump’s tweets to make the point that the reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last year might not be telling the truth.
Naturally, people loved the idea of Bernie holding up a big white sign because it’s really easy to Photoshop. Check out some of the best new Bernie signs:
