13 Tumblr Posts That Probably Shouldn't Be Funny But Kind of Are

Despite its reputation as a haven for whiny, "social justice warriors" and liberal teenagers with too much time on their hands, Tumblr is actually a pretty diverse online community with users ranging in age from 13-ish to late fifties. This diversity is reflected in Tumblr's many varieties of humor, from droll or dark to dirty to scathing satire and observational comedy. Droll humor is probably what the blogging platform does best, and it's so insidious that one doesn't even realize how much their sense of humor as changed until they catch themselves chuckling at "egg" at 3 in the morning. Or guffawing at this short video of a man doing yoga dressed as the Grinch.

(This video once made me laugh so hard, I wheezed for ten minutes straight, and I've yet to understand why)

Keeping Tumblr's tendency to warp a person's sense of humor in mind, I've managed to put together 13 posts that, in true Tumblr form, probably shouldn't be funny but still kind of are, like...

1. The realization that Kellyanne Conway's brain might not be able to handle any more "alternative facts"

2. This science pun

3. This truly gripping bit of prose

4. This post that blessed us with the mental image of White Supremacist and liberal punching bag Richard Spencer getting decked by a furry

5. This pretty good question

6. This realization...that might be just a little too real

7. And another realization that's just hilarious

8. This self-evident truth

(I have never met Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, but I would trust him with my life. And I would welcome him into my messy shame-hut of a home.)

9. This post that speaks to introverts in particular

10. This joke about Halsey

11. This spot-on observation about the relationship between art and politics

12. This good and pure omegle chat

(on a related note, unsolicited cat pics should totally replace unsolicited dick pics as a thing)

13. And finally, this combo-breaker of a post

We've got:

-A relatable post about being squishy and seen at your worst angle in front of a laptop screen

-A nod to the Star Warsfandom

-An even funnier nod to Rogue One star Diego Luna's bizarre and well-documented crush on Jabba the Hutt.

-The comforting realization that, even when you're squishy and presented at your worst angle, you are still appealing to a man who's able to have sexual chemistry with a brick wall

(above: how I started puberty)

A true masterpiece.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
