And this is without even considering the Trump Memes which are even less presidential, but at least those are made by the people, not the Commander-In-Chief himself.
No matter your walk of life, it's pretty safe to say that we can all come together to talk about music. Everyone and their grandmother has either learned how to play an instrument or at least listens to music. And if you don't even listen to music, then what are you doing with your life...
SNL writer Josh Patten is trolling the President hard. The writer and comedian announced his new project "Responding To Trump Tweets Like They Were Texts" on July 16th, and we can't get enough of it. Patten's "text" responses are brief and colloquial, providing contrast that helps highlight just how over the top and exclamatory the President's tweets can be. Patten has declined to comment on the project, but we're definitely hoping to see more of these "text exchanges" in the future.
Country music isn't for everyone, and we get that. That's why we compiled these memes that will appeal to both the lovers and haters of the country lifestyle. Whether you're sittin' on the porch sipping sweet tea or hating on country music like the hipster you are, we've got something here for you.
In what is hopefully the last bit of Bee Movie meme-ing this year, a freshman at Baylor University wrote the script to Bee Movie by hand for his girlfriend as some sort of Christmas gift. Who says romance isn’t dead ironic?
Conner Fastenau spent three hours, three human hours, 180-EARTH MINUTES, transcribing the 2007 script to Bee Movie, the film about a talking bee that Jerry Seinfeld made for some reason, as sign of his romantic attraction for an adult human woman. She reportedly “got a good laugh,” so it was “worth it,” Fastenau told Buzzfeed.
Bee Movie has been the subject of a strange resurgence of late. Earlier this year, someone put the script to Bee Movie on a shirt in really small print, and just last month, a video that featured all of Bee Movie except every time someone said “bee” the playback sped up went viral. The world continues to be in awe not only of Bee Movie’s very existence, but also ongoing cultural relevance.
Humans have interrupted a lot of natural processes. Highways divide forests, and dams interrupt the migration routes for fish. But that isn't to say that we haven't found solutions to some of the problems that we created. Wildlife bridges have been built over highways allow animals to cross the highway safely. And in a recent Twitter storm, the public has rediscovered an amazing apparatus that scientists released in 2014 which helps salmon migrate. It is called the Salmon Cannon. And as you can imagine, everyone is obsessed with it.
Debbie Reynolds, singer, dancer, and actress of Singin’ in the Rain, died last night at the age 84, mere hours after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher. One of Hollywood’s biggest stars in the 50s and 60s, she received an Oscar nomination for The Unsinkable Molly Brown in 1964 and continued to appear on stage and screen well into the 21st century. If you aren’t familiar with her face, you’ve probably heard Reynolds’ voice on some of your favorite cartoons, including Rugrats, Family Guy, and as the voice of Charlotte in 1973’s classic adaptation of Charlotte’s Web.
And like in Fisher’s death just two days ago, the world mourns the loss of another beloved actor, with many posting tributes to Reynolds on Twitter.
Watch a clip from Singin’ in the Rain and read some of the tributes to Debbie Reynolds below.
President Trump, pull it together, man. At the very least let's work to keep the condolences about the horrific, painful moments in history that are shootings, ACCURATE. Everything about this is a stomach-turning, comically absurd kind of FAIL. Yes, the President of the United States seemingly tweeted out his condolences about the Texas mass shooting, BUT forgot to change the name of the city to Corning, California where a mass shooting occurred at Rancho Tehama Elementary School.
This is so much to process. If you need a break, these Trump memes are what you will most likely want for said break.
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.
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:
