Sometimes what makes a post truly legendary isn’t the post itself, but the response. I made a joke on Facebook the other day that I thought was pretty funny, but when a friend commented an absolutely perfect response, I conceded that “what I wrote was the setup and this is the punchline I didn’t even realize it needed.”
I think you could kind of say the same for these Tumblr posts. The original is fun, but the reply(s) make it clear that only through collaboration could the bit be complete.
15. Man up
“Well actually, I got these scars from…”
Fine, have if your way.
13. Can you back that up?
An important reminder in internet safety.
Ah, so this is sex.
11. The fast and the furriest
Not how I intended to come out, but OK.
10. Not to be
Shakespeare was the original Tumblr?
9. I’m in
Never color your password red.
8. Duty calls
Smart phones should just be called smarts at this point, we don’t need the phone part.
7. Where are you?
(Make sure you look at the hashtag at the bottom)
6. Hear my prayer
They were trying to have a sincere moment and you ruined it with your hilarious joke.
5. Tag lines
The call is coming from outside the house.
4. Thanks a lot, Obama
They have a special bond.
3. Mountains of laughs
It just keeps getting better.
2. Need vs want
Don’t tell them how to live their metal lives.
1. Tweet tweet, mother*****r
Now you’re speaking my language.
Like a fine wine, only getting better as it ages and is passed from person to person. These Tumblr posts are the heirlooms I will give to my children.
