Game of Thrones got real dark the other night with its Battle of Winterfell episode. Maybe a little bit frustratingly dark. So dark in fact that it didn't fail to inspire some hilarious memes and Twitter reactions from fans.That being said, we finally have a Twitter user who's stepped forwards to offer a more comprehensive, helpful explanation on why things got so dark...
Now with extra 'Rick and Morty' backlash!
Dank memes are what power our economy more than old men in board rooms clicking buttons and making billions of dollars move from one place to another. They definitely do not get the recognition that they deserve, so hopefully this list will help do just that. If your work day is just never ending, and all you can think of is getting free, these dank memes will definitely have you feeling more fulfilled and ready to take on the challenges of the day. Or it will waste the last 45 minutes until lunch, but either way, you win. But indulge in your darkest desires with these Patrick Star memes all about being a reflection of our evil delights.
Looks like Charles isn’t so in charge these days, unless he’s charge-ing someone with assault.
Note to self: Punch up that lead. Pun intended. Let’s try another.
2016 has officially jumped the shark.
Note to self: That’s the one.
Apparently, Scott Baio has filed a police report against the wife of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Nancy Mack. Attending a school event, where both of their children attend, Mack allegedly confronted Baio, one of the president-elect’s most ardent supports, and berated him, grabbed him, and screamed “Grab ‘em by the pussy” at him.
As the Fonz would say, “Hey… if the president can say it.”
Well, apparently, that’s what Mack said too, inadvertently quoting the Fonz. She was merely “trying to show Baio how Trump hugs women,” TMZ reports. “Baio asked Nancy to stop, but he claims she kept repeating the comment because she felt everyone needed to hear it, cause Trump used it. Baio told cops at that point Mack attacked him, grabbing him under his arms and then shaking and pushing him.”
If only he still had his powers from the movie Zapped!, you know, where Scott Baio plays a teen with the superpower of being able to remove women’s clothes with his mind. Actually that probably would’ve made the situation a lot worse, especially considering she’s bringing up the time the president-elect admitted to sexually assaulting women because “when you’re a star, they let do it.”
Anyway, sit on it, 2016. Yowsah, yowsah, yowsah. Up your nose with a rubber hose. Wait, that’s Welcome Back, Kotter.
The 1980s were a dangerous time for many of us, but it was especially dangerous if you were from a specific demographic: A sitcom mother.
Go ahead, think about it. Have you ever noticed that while you were watching reruns of Diff’rent Strokes or Full House that there was never a mom around? To paraphrase a 90s sitcom, what’s the deal with that?
This was no accident. There was a reason why so many sitcoms were about single fathers dealing with multiple children, and the After Hours team at Cracked took a quick look at why “audiences tuned in week after week to laugh at grieving families and abandoned children?”
In this video, Cracked uncovers the reason that the 80s were such a bad time to be a sitcom mom, or a sit-mom, as I’ll refer to them. Some reasons include: the success of the first example, Diff’rent Strokes led to copycats; the removal of a show’s moral center (the mother) would result in “dad’s burning dinners and uncomfortably buying bras,” as well as unaccompanied minors playing in a dump and getting stuck in a fridge. But ultimately, they discover that these shows were a response to rising divorce rates and the breakdown of the American nuclear family.
Check out the video and learn a little something about how the 80s were a golden age of abandoned kids and idiot fathers.
In the past few days, The Simpsons has been looked at as some sort of cartoon crystal ball, after successfully predicting Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential win in the year 2000.
Now that the prophecy has come to pass, many wanted to know why they even bothered to make that joke in the first place. Well, wonder no longer. For as it was written, The Hollywood Reporter interviewed the writer who made the joke.
"It was a warning to America," said writer Dan Greaney. “The important thing is that Lisa comes into the presidency when America is on the ropes, and that is the condition left by the Trump presidency. What we needed was for Lisa to have problems that were beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that's why we had Trump be president before her.”
"I am tickled we are getting all this attention, but I don't think it's going to trigger this well-awaited re-evaluation of my episode that I was hoping for.”
So there you have it: It wasn’t a prediction, it was a warning that we failed to heed. Everything’s fine. Well, now that that’s settled, who wants to get some frosty chocolate milkshakes? Anyone? Anyone?
Jeopardy! has been making quite a comeback in the past few months — what with Alex Trebeck rapping and calling his contestants losers and all. But last night, a contestant on Jeopardy!’s Teen Tournament took the gameshow back for the players.
During "Final Jeopardy!," the contestant, Sabrina, didn't stumble when she didn't know the answer. Instead, she shut Jeopardy! down with an Internet-ready response worth all the Daily Doubles in the world.
Her response to the answer “Roughly half the size of Texas, it's the largest structure made by living creatures and can even be seen from space” was...
Forget that the answer is "The Great Barrier Reef" because this is all that matters now.
And the crowd went wild:
Your move, Trebek.
Following a delightful song and dance number between Late Show-host Stephen Colbert and an innocent ragamuffin, the mayor of Candytown himself, Jon Stewart, dropped in to offer the audience some “toffee from an old man’s pants.” But upon learning that Donald Trump is running for president, Stewart, who’s a little out of the loop these days, gave his patented spit-take salute in surprise. Time to get back to work… after a little Yentl, for which there is always time.
Hamilton's Javier Muñoz, an astronaut, a crossing guard, and, of course, an adorable orphan joined other classic symbols of Americana, Colbert, and Stewart on stage to remind the audience to get out and vote. Make this old man’s wish come true, America.
And now, what we’ve all been waiting for, gifs of people doing spit takes!
