It’s a regular part of mainstream reporting on just about anything now. But you know what never makes the news? Just somebody tweeting something funny that I liked. Why is that? Is it because “nobody cares about that” and “it’s not important to our national discourse?” Or is it that the media are cowards who are afraid of a good time? I’ll let YOU decide.
In the meantime, here are some random funny tweets that I find newsworthy all on their own.

9. Very alarming
Remember when we went places and looked ways?
do u ever set 2 alarms for the morning where the first one is like ‘im gonna make myself eggs for breakfast and look like a snack today’ and the second one is like ‘im gonna have to deal with a snack for breakfast and look like an egg today’

I’m not on speaking terms with any animal except my cat, and that’s pretty one-sided.
