What You Would Really Sound Like If You Took Your Mom's Advice

(0) Comments | Posted May 2, 2016 | 11:57 AM

As much as you hate to admit it, your mom is usually right about most things. When she tells you to take a jacket, or to ease slowly into a relationship, it's because a lifetime of experience has made her wise. Wiser than you.

#ElectionPlotTwist Somehow Makes The 2016 Election Even Crazier

(0) Comments | Posted April 27, 2016 | 1:51 PM

Where else could this presidential election go? Is it too extreme to think that one candidate might remove their head to reveal that an alien has been in control the whole time. That would be pretty shocking ... BUT WOULD IT REALLY???

If You've Ever Wondered How The Power Rangers Die, Here You Go

(0) Comments | Posted April 27, 2016 | 1:35 PM

The Power Rangers seem invincible. Sure, they might take a few punches or appear weakened during battles at one time or another, but ultimately they regroup and defeat whatever villain is hounding them that week.

But eventually they have to die, right? At some point, notwithstanding natural causes, one villain...

If my Official Republican Handbook has taught me anything, it's that some people love nothing more than a white man explaining things to them.

CollegeHumor Explains Why Bernie Sanders Is Actually Winning

(0) Comments | Posted April 25, 2016 | 3:59 PM

"Bernie Math" isn't like other math. In Bernie Math, super delegates don't count (unless they're on his side), momentum is more important than addition, and everyone I know personally is voting for Bernie so it's safe to assume that he's getting more votes.

CollegeHumor breaks down the electoral...

It’s Earth Day on Friday, the one day a year when we pretend to care about the planet we’re kinda sorta ruining. Earth obviously isn’t happy with us. Can you imagine if our own world took to social media to vent about planet stuff?

The 'Mother Buffer' App Will Text Mom Back So You Don't Have To

(0) Comments | Posted April 21, 2016 | 12:27 PM

You love your mom, but technology has essentially ruined your ability to get away from her. Well, now with "Mother Buffer," a (sadly fake) app from comedy duo Moll & Rell, you don't have to see her texts ever again if you choose!

"Mother Buffer" takes your mother's normally overly dramatic or excited text messages to you and creates a carefully crafted auto-response. This gives you more time for yourself, to do things that she likely wouldn't approve of...
