In the US, there are 3 places you go when you have totally lost your mind:
1- A psychiatric hospital
2- The Republican Party
Ok, and maybe an audition for The Bachelor, but that’s it – those four places. That’s why Reddit is such an amazing forum; with only a few places to turn, so many incredibly entertaining people turn there. And where they really shine once they get there, is in the Comments section.
Every once in a while we get lucky, and on Reddit people post links to our articles. Every once in a while we get even luckier, and on Reddit people comment on those articles. Some of those comments are so weird, witty, hilarious and grossly inappropriate that I couldn’t help but start a Hall of Fame. These are my first batch of inductees, with article titles, images, videos, and some color commentary of my own.
What would Reddit be without the classic, 5th Grade Mom burns?
APPARENTLY IT’S NEVER TIME TO GET OFF REDDIT
I will also take 7.
(Reddit Title: New supersonic passenger plane secures 7 billion dollar deal from Virgin Airlines…)
Fact: Mom jokes never get old.
Same goes for semi-racist Jesus gags.
Bronze Medal awarded.
I’m not going to say I don’t feel guilty laughing at this…but I am laughing at this. HARD.
SOMEBODY PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS PERSON IS NEVER ALLOWED TO “MAKE A PROTOTYPE” OF ANYTHING EVER.
How late into the election process are you allowed to submit a new Presidential candidate?
Awes-…I mean….totally gross and over the line. Toooootally…..
And just as I’m about to turn 34, I turn 8.
Silver Medal awarded.
Did I just read a Hunter S. Thompson book?? I don’t know who these people are or what kind of mushrooms they put on their pizza, but I fucking love them with all my heart.
(Reddit Title: Google’s ambitious venture into anti-aging medicine could eventually involve replacing bits of our DNA with that of a lobster)
I repeat, I love them with ALL my heart.
Key excerpt from the article: “Back in June 2015, the folks at MegaBots challenged Japan-based Suidobashi Heavy Industries to a duel of nerdtastic proportions.”
I’m sorry. I really am. But how could I not?
If I don’t see Laundry Folding at the Rio Olympics, I am going to be livid.
As far as I’m concerned, anything even remotely punny deserves a Pulitzer.
