Donald Trump has a particular way of talking and Twitter has put that to good use with #TrumpNarratesPlanetEarth
We've all seen those insane college dorm room transformations floating around the internet now that we're in back-to-school season - you know, where a college student supposedly converts a hideous tiny dorm room into a gorgeous space that looks fit for a Kardashian. Well, people on the internet have started to roast these "transformations" and call them out for being fake, because let's be honest...what college student realistically has the time or money for that?
Have a look!
JK Rowling, the queen of drawing out random details of the Harry Potter franchise, is back in the limelight for, well...drawing out random details of the Harry Potter franchise - details that absolutely no one asked for, of course.
She told Radio Times last week that Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald had an "intense and passionate" relationship that had a "sexual dimension to it." Of course, her actual statements got twisted in subsequent reports, but the roasts and parody tweets that have come from it are absolutely still valid!
We're not here to get all political with you all, but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to share these hilarious parody tweets. The roasts started when Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner tweeted, "New post: Elizabeth Warren's plan to cancel student loan debt would be a slap in the face to all those who struggled to pay off their loans." We're lazy, so we're not going to go into more detail, but you can read about it here.
As you can probably see, this line of thinking is a bit flawed, so accordingly, Twitter users had a field day with it!
Thank you, Literary Twitter for starting our new favorite hashtag challenge. The fun stems from the #OwnVoices hashtag, which addresses the voices of marginalized communities. The hashtag naturally had its critcs; among them was a male author that insisted he was living proof that men are capable of penning realistic female characters. After Gwen C. Katz shared some super-cringey passages of his proof, the challenge was born.
Women on Twitter quickly began parodying the passages, describing their most coveted features in hilarious and painfully flowery fashion. Many of these tweets show greater writing chops than we've seen in some books. While the fetishization of female characters is certainly getting old, we could read these farcical tweets all day.
It's that time of year again! Coachella has revealed it's anticipated 2019 lineup and while some are screaming in delight, others aren't quite as thrilled. One thing everyone can agree on though is that these parody lineups is where it's at. Who are you most excited to see? For us, it's a 3-way tie between 'Blake Lively's Suits', 'Protozoa', and 'Lindsay Lohan (Herbie Fully Loaded)'.
Recently Donald Trump tweeted the word "TREASON?" in light of the New York Times op ed that was published on Wednesday. The article was supposedly written by someone within the Trump Administration, calling themselves part of the "resistance."
After Trump's "treason" tweet, people on Twitter began making their own amusing parodies, which you can read below!
President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to make America as safe as it can possibly be. However, after a week of transition, Trump and his team have failed to make mention of White Men, which are, statistically speaking, “the greatest threat to domestic security for all American Citizens.”
So that’s why Candace Thompson created the White Male Registry as means of monitoring this underreported threat and pointing out the obvious hypocrisy and prejudice of a Muslim registry, which the president-elect and his team have been floating around for, oh, the past year. </p>
In a recent Facebook post, Thompson explained why she created the registry:
“In America 57% of reported rapes and 64% of mass shootings were committed by white men," she writes. "45% of all serial killers are white men. 1 in 3 women will experience some form of domestic violence during their lifetime, and 97% of those domestic violence perpetrators were men.”
“Forget the nation of Islam, our most immediate threat to domestic security is and always has been white, straight men.”

In addition to asking White Men to volunteer and do their civic duty for the country, Thompson also vowed to register “every white man in Washington one by one,” in addition to sending them a message about the registry.
