God’s Mysterious Ways

On a daily basis, pretty much all of us have a “wtf?” moment. By and large, it’s usually the result of bearing witness to someone saying or doing something completely moronic.

Example: I once watched my college dorm roommate take a FULL TUB of ice cream to the recycling room.

Other times, our “wtf?” moments aren’t necessarily what people do, but the stuff they event or make. Example: chicken omelets. How or why somebody decided to take a chicken then stuff it BACK into the egg is beyond me. I’m by no means a vegetarian, but that shit’s just wrong and sadistic.

And then our “wtf?” moments that have absolutely nothing to do with us. It’s just God or the Universe’s way of trolling us because… duh! That’s what you do when you have all the power.

Here are 25 tweets that suggest God has way more humor than us mortals give him credit for.



The Comeback Kid

In 1995, singer and songwriter, Alanis Morrisette, wrote a song called “Ironic” that quickly shot up the pop charts to #1.

Admittedly it was a catchy tune (although, turns out, wasn’t actually “ironic” at all, but a bunch of examples of “bad luck.” I only know this because my English teacher at the time was a grammar and word nazi, and he was NOT HAVING HIM any Alanis.)

Anywho, great news if you were a fan the crooner and her music! She’s actually still alive and her song “Ironic” is back. Only this time, it’s been revamped to be more relevant and current to today’s issues.

Here she is on The Late Show with James Corden, debuting an updated version of an old classic.
