How far we’ve come as a human race. From inventing toilet paper in AD600 to having indoor plumbing in 1860, nothing could have prepared us next milestone of toilet habits: Twitter — as this photo that accompanied a Slate article said it all.
People who won’t let their feet be caught dead in these foamy, resiny Crocs, there are worse things than death. Or Crocs, for that matter. Yes, the world can be ugly. Here, take a look at these tweets. Then take these Crocs. Deal with it.
Just when you think ‘omg’ has knocked all exclamational intent to its simplest form, along comes ‘ermahgerd’, which makes ‘omg’ sound even more juvenile. And now We’ve just discovered the existence of the ermahgerdBot, a Twitter bot that basically retweets anyone who goes ‘ermahgerd’ in their tweets.

Because everybody is a terrorist.’ The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a bad rep, and the parody TSA account on Twitter mocks the agency expertly and hilariously.

Plus, judging from its Instagram shots, the immaculately-styled Llama oozes just as much old-school charm as its human counterpart singer with the really big lips and really big hair, if not more.
Everyone needs good PR. Even Darth Vadar, the most evil bloke in the universe with a cloak and helmet head but no helmet hair.
