Trolling Celebrities

My mom recently bought my 3-year-old boy green sand on Amazon

I repeat… my MOM…. bought my 3-YEAR-OLD… green… sand.

Why would a mother do that to her poor daughter you might wonder if you are a rational person (unlike my mother).

The answer is: because you are a troll. You buy a toddler neon-colored sand because you want that toddler’s parents to spend the rest of their natural existence vacuuming up the crap like it’s glitter. I can only deduce that my mother just hates me and is trolling me hard.

Of course, I’m totally kidding. However, if you want to passive-aggressively troll someone you hate, might I suggest sending them a bag of brightly colored sand? It’s significantly more creative than bashing them online (like these people did to their least favorite celebrities).



No Mo’ Morty

Ahhhhhhhh, the beginning of a budding romance. Nothing is quite like that high of the first few months of meeting that special someone and spending every possible second you can with them. It’s like a drug… minus the chance of cops getting involved.

However, the actual act of dating can be cumbersome and – in many cases – straight-up brutal. You have already established all these preconceived notions about how the date SHOULD go, then try to portray yourself in the most flattering light possible to ensure these dating standards fall into place.

It’s exhausting and the rules keep changing. It used to be that you weren’t supposed to talk about religion, politics, or exes on the first few dates.

Now, according to this Vice article, you can’t talk about this long-running, popular cartoon series.
