15 of the Best Takes on Thor: Ragnarok

Do you remember Thor: Ragnarok?

Almost feels like lifetimes ago now, but it’s been just a few years since the wild and hilarious addition to the MCU came to us courtesy of director Taika Waititi. It was a smash hit, making back about five times its budget and earning over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Disney has always been smart with the Marvel franchise, and that includes course corrections when needed. The Thor installments up to that point had been just a little too heavy and somber – the colorama Goldblum-blessed feast of Ragnarok turned that around quick, and the internet noticed.

Of course, you can’t talk fandom without talking Tumblr. Here are just a few of the best Tumblr fan takes on the film.

15. Absolutely Shakespearean

Turns out most people who spend all their time yelling about how they should be in charge don’t actually have that much to offer. Who knew.

Memes That Are on the Money About Life in 2020

The economy is all over the place and things are looking pretty sketchy right about now.

I’m no expert in these matters but I propose a solution: let’s turn to a meme-based economy. Like cryptocurrencies, except not like that at all, because I honestly don’t understand how those work.

What I’m saying is let’s start treating memes like money and it’ll probably go great! Even if it doesn’t, we’ll have all these memes to laugh at, which will distract us from how not-great everything went. You can’t lose.

To give you an idea of how this would go, I’ve gathered twelve completely random memes and assigned a currency conversion calculation to let you know what I think they’re worth.

12. Mind on my money

Meme value: $1.00

Via: someecards

11. Gettin’ chipped, gotta dip

Meme value: $4.79, the retail price of a family sized bag.

Via: someecards

10. Pupper slumber

Meme value: $4 and gentle pats on the head.

Via: someecards

9. All in the phrasing

Meme value: $2 and the wisdom to know who not to screw with.

Via: someecards

8. Killing it

Meme value: the college fund your parents didn’t end up having to spend on you.

Via: someecards

7. Die laughing

Meme value: your life.

Via: someecards

6. Pain by numbers

Meme value: the price of a set of permanent markers and even more permanent emotional scarring.

Via: someecards

5. Chill pills

Meme value: $50, or a $10 copay with insurance.

Via: someecards

4. I scream

Meme value: priceless.

Via: someecards

3. Phony phone time

Meme value: dog.

Via: someecards

2. Follow your memes

Meme value: an $8 take and bake pizza.

Via: someecards

1. The grudge

Meme value: a forest worth of burn books.

Via: someecards

Some critics have claimed that my system of memes as currency “makes no sense,” and “is wildly inconsistent.” But to them I say – that’s never stopped us before.

Do you think we should replace money with memes? Why or why not?

10 Tweets to Improve Your Day

For a long time, tweets were limited to just 140 characters. Then in 2017, they decided to up the limit to 280.

Interestingly though, they found that in beta testing, most people still preferred to keep the messages shorter even with more real estate allowed. Seems that the entire appeal of Twitter is in the brevity, whether that’s in the service of a pithy social statement or just a dumb joke.

Here, briefly, are ten short tweets that are definitely dumb jokes.

10. Inside out

A modern rendition of the scream.

9. Knife to meet you

Yanno, I think I could take a stab at cooking too.

8. Sleep with me

That’s not your fellow, that’s your pillow.

7. Time flies

Ah, Hollywood. Where 27 years olds are teenagers and 40 year olds are ancient.

6. Speaking my language

It’s like they say, communication is key.

5. The best part of waking up

It’s a late start, but it’s still a start, I guess?

4. Oh hi doggy

The dog will never say anything stressful or disappointing back.

3. Shelf help

You don’t have to be well read to put this one together.

2. Technically speaking

The best KIND of correct.

1. Terrible lizards

This tweet has absolutely made my day in ways I can’t even explain.

In the spirit of what makes twitter great, we’ll keep it brief and end it there. Just ten little random messages tailor-made by strangers to make us giggle. Hope that short trip has brightened your day!

Check Out Lizzo’s Special Recipe for the Hungover Vegans Out There

Lizzo is an icon. And while she hasn’t been active on the tour scene lately, she’s definitely been active writing and making us all jealous of her poolside ways.

But despite the fact that her insta handle is @LizzoBeEating, she doesn’t tend to dedicate a ton of her online space to food content.

When she does though, it’s pretty great.

Recently, she offered up her personal solution to a big conundrum: what do you eat if you’re committed to a vegan diet, but you had a little too much to drink last night?

“Being plant based and vegan has been pretty easy,” she says in a cooking TikTok, “except for when I’m hungover. I used to crave cheesy eggs. So, here is my substitute…”

@lizzo

Might do a what I eat in a day vid because I feel like us fat queens need to represent 🤤

♬ original sound – lizzo

It sounds pretty good even to us omnivores. Here’s how the recipe breaks down:

1. Carne Asada and Black Bean Corn Mixture

This is the base for the recipe, she talks more about it in a previous video you can watch here.

2. JUST Egg

Add this plant-based egg substitute to the mix.

3. Season to Taste

Lizzo added some garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

4. Add Spinach

Gotta get those greens in there.

5. Slice of Vegan Pepperjack

For a little spice.

6. Fry Up Some Vegan Bacon

Lizzo recommends cooking it in maple syrup so it’s “crunchy and candied.”

7. Enjoy!

Now you’re ready to chow down on what she calls “a really ugly but delicious scramble!”

A few specialty items to pick up for sure, but if you’re already stocking up for a plant-based diet, this sure looks like a recipe to try!

What’s YOUR go-to hangover meal?

People Talk About Things They Were Into Before They Became “Cool”

You’ve heard people brag (or humblebrag) about being into certain things before they hit the mainstream.

Movies, music, artists, etc. People always like to make sure that everyone out there knows that they were into it WAYYYYYY before it got popular.

But some people really were into stuff before everyone else knew about it.

What were you into before it was cool?

Here’s what folks on AskReddit had to say about this.

1. Snapchat.

“Snapchat. I downloaded it when it was in its early stages..and then deleted the app shortly after because none of my friends were on it.

I still have people asking me how I got my username.

@ohsnapyo.”

2. Wow!

“I went to a bar a long time ago (illegally- I was below drinking age) to see this punk band play. I liked it enough that I shelled out for one of their cassettes (pre-CD).

The band was Green Day.”

3. Rock star.

“I got stoned with John Mayer in a college town before he put out a CD. He was playing the blues at a club in front of 100 people and i only caught the last song.

We got high and he gave me a cd and wrote on it…. few weeks later I put the cd in and quickly tossed it out.

So I was early adopter of John Mayer playing the blues, AND throwing out his trash studio albums.”

4. Vinyl.

“I was into vinyl before it made a comeback.

And since nobody in the ’90s or early 2000s wanted their records anymore, I basically got 500+ records for free or nearly free.”

5. Potterhead.

“I was reading Harry Potter from like, day one. I remember how this happened so clearly. My dads birthday landed on the same day day that the book was released in the US, September 1, 1998, and we got him a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble, among a few other things.

The very next day, my dad and I went to Barnes and Noble. He picked two books, one was a New York Mets coffee table book and the other was the newly released Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, which he handed to me.

There were stacks and stacks of them on a display table right at the front of the store. He mentioned that he had read an article about how good the book was a few weeks prior, and that it would be releasing in the US soon. We were in the store for all of five minutes.

I read the first two chapters on the way home, and was immediately hooked. I swear I read that book a dozen times before going to the midnight release of Chamber of Secrets the following year.”

6. Awesome!

“Saw Metallica for my first concert in 1985 on the Ride The Lightning tour in Austin Texas.”

7. Interesting.

“Donald Glover.

He was part of a comedy group called Derrick Comedy that was absolutely hilarious.”

8. Eminem.

“I once did a Google search for Eminem and it came back with zero results.

I was an editor at All music at the time and emailed my higher ups to tell them he needed a listing ASAP.”

9. Old school.

“I was chugging Pabst Blue Ribbon years before it became the go-to hipster brew.”

10. Back in the day.

“Reddit.

This account is rather recent but I discovered the platform in its infancy. It had less stuff back then but the discussions were better.

And then, mainstream caught up.”

11. DMB.

“When I started college in 1993, the first real big party I went to was a sorority party with a band. I was there before they went on, and when I saw they had a saxophone set up on stage, I (having played alto sax in hs) set my beer down on the stage in front of where the sax player would be.

They wound up being really good live, and a few weeks later the Dave Matthews Band first album came out, and I bought it first day.

I’ll never forget taking that cd home at Christmas break and playing it for high school friends who said “WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS SH*T?” The next year they all apologized because they were all into them once they got popular.

I saw them a few times, but after they got super big I really didn’t like any of their new material and quit listening to them. The last time I saw them I remember seeing Daisy Fuentes outside the theater interviewing people after the show and had a feeling they were about to be a big MTV band.

However, from time to time I’ll hear an old tune of theirs and will remember when I thought they were very cool.”

12. Get with it!

“Adult coloring.

I never liked drawing but loved coloring, so as I grew up I would seek out all kinds of coloring books. I loved how calming it was, and I would often color with my grandparents so I created a lot of fond memories there.

I got made fun of a lot for my hobby until it suddenly became cool in the last few years.”

13. Good stuff.

“Tito’s Vodka.

I was living in Austin before it went nationwide and after moving back to the Midwest, it took a couple years for the mass release before it really took off.”

14. Cool Mom!

“My white suburban mom did yoga back in the 1970’s when it was considered “a hippy thing”.”

15. Crazy.

“I was out for the night back when I was 17/18/19. A friend and I went to a good pub in Oxfordshire where we thought we’d have a chance to pick up some girls.

Ended up getting drunk, taking an E and listening to the band who were pretty good. After their set we popped out of the pub for a quick joint.

The band walked over and asked for a toke. Ended up spending the rest of the evening In the back of their van smoking weed and drinking.

Turned out that the band was an unknown indie/rock group called Radiohead. A couple of weeks later Creep went international.

Been a fan ever since.”

People Share the Interesting, Dark Facts About People’s Favorite Cartoons

If you think cartoons are all rainbows and sunshine, think again, friend.

There is some pretty dark and disturbing material embedded in those seemingly innocent and fun TV shows and movies that might surprise you…or even shock you.

Let’s get weird with folks from AskReddit.

1. That’s a little weird.

“There was a Smurfs PSA that was made for UNICEF.

I believe where their entire village is carpet bombed.

It. Was. Nuts.”

2. Don’t tell me that!

“Ren and Stimpy was an absolute nightmare for the people who worked on it. John K ordered them not to make the same face twice. Pretty, but it was hell for the workers because they were constantly drawing things.

John K was a nightmare boss. One of the producers had a sign on his wall labeled “John’s knees” and invited people to kick it. By the time he left it was reduced to a hole.

They made several episodes that were just the animators ranting about how much of an *sshole that John K was.”

3. Great idea!

“The pilot of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy called “Trepanation of the Skull and You” tells kids that because of a mistake in evolution our skulls are too small for our brains, and that you should drill a hole in your skull as to grant the brain more space.

Which is then followed by Billy doing exactly that.

The whole thing looks like some cursed forgotten video tape.”

4. Creepy.

“Some of the earliest versions of Little Red Riding Hood end with the wolf raping Red and then eating her.

The literal moral of the story was for girls to not trust strangers.”

5. Whoa!

“The creator of Skeletor was inspired by a corpse in a haunted house that he was 100% sure was real.

Turned out he was right.”

6. Awful.

“The studio had to get someone else to sing “Soon You’ll Come Home” in All Dogs go to Heaven because the voice actor, Judith Barsi, had such a traumatic home life because of an abusive, alcoholic father that she couldn’t sing the song without having a breakdown.

She and her mother were murdered by him before the movie was released in a double-murder/suicide. She was only 10.

She was also the voice of Ducky from Land Before Time. Her tombstone reads, “Yep! Yep! Yep!””

7. Poor Donald.

“Donald Duck fought in WWII and has PTSD.

In an episode he wakes up and thinks he is in a Japanese mine field and he is in a lot of WWII cartoons.”

8. Creepy.

“Sleeping Beauty is only 14 years old in the original story and Prince Charming is around 30.”

9. Witchcraft?

“Adventure Time is full of occult references

My favorite one is in the episode “All The Little People” in which Magic Man says “Do what thoust will be the whole piece of law” which is taken from Aleister Crowley’s “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.””

10. Apocalyptic.

“The premise of Adventure Time is actually really dark.

Its the aftermath of a literal nuclear war that killed most of humanity and caused evil mutants like The Litch to wreak havoc on the planet.”

11. Oh, no!

“There was a Tom & Jerry episode where Tom dies and goes to heaven.

While waiting in the line of counter they show a wet sack with baby kittens inside it coming out and running towards train. Ticket counter guy notices it and says ” what some people won’t do”.

He’s talking about old times when people use to tie up small kittens in the sack and let them drown in river.”

12. Let’s eat!

“In the Peppa Pig universe, characters eating each other is slightly acknowledged when a couple of the characters are stranded on an island.”

13. Not good.

“The Carmen Sandiego reboot is animated by Top Draw Animation.

They’re a sweatshop and they fired an animator for asking for minimum wage compensation.”

14. Nuclear fallout.

“Bikini Bottom is called so because of the Bikini Atoll.

In the 1940s and ’50s, the US held nuclear tests there.

All the characters on SpongeBob SquarePants are like this because they’re radioactive creatures.”

15. Makes sense.

“The reason Mickey and other characters where white gloves is because it allows their hands to be seen better.

This is a reference to actors when they did black face they wore white gloves so the audience could see their hands and fingers moving.”

Do you know any weird or dark facts about cartoons?

If so, please share them with us in the comments.

We’d love to hear from you!

People Imagine the Remote Learning “Pandemic” Options at Hogwarts

In times like these, the imaginary worlds we love are more important than ever. They’re still intact, unchanged and unbroken, there for us to escape into whenever we’d like.

That said, it can also be fun to imagine how our favorite characters would be if they were living in our bizarro timeline – which is exactly what these 17 people are doing when they dream up what online alternatives would be for classes at Hogwarts.

17. A horror version, for sure.

So, here’s where the horror of Covid comes into play.

Picture Harry Potter in his abusive home, and in lockdown.

16. They’re definitely not going to use a computer. How boring.

Everyone gets a moving painting of their teacher so they can learn from home.

15. A mystery to keep everyone occupied.

There are now furious discussions on the UK birdwatching messaging boards about the uptick in the sightings of owls carrying scrolls

14. I knew those owls would come in handy.

The school has owls that are free to use. I’d assume they go round once a week or so to pick up assignments. Considering how mail owls act, kids who don’t have assignments ready would have to finish them quickly while being harassed.

Muggle houses can be connected to the floo network in special circumstances. The family would have to purchase floo powder locally or owl order it though.

13. They have so many options!

Floo meetings.

Just try not to eat soot as you stick your head in the fire.

12. No mask required.

You know that bubble charm used during the Tri-Wizard Tournament?

11. Maybe they’ll share the cure with the rest of us.

Witches and wizards can easily heal non magical diseases. This is covered in the books. Injuries or normal sicknesses can be wand waved away, it’s only the magically-caused afflictions that require a really advanced magical treatment.

Remember when Madam Pomfrey said it would have only taken seconds to fix Harry’s broken arm, but since Lockhart had zapped his bones away it would take all night? It’s likely that COVID would just be a nuisance, a quick charm to zap it off each kid on arrival.

The really scary alternative is that COVID is a magical illness which has escaped out of the Wizarding world into the Muggle world, the wizards are scrambling to figure out how to fix it, and also how to cure the whole Muggle world without blowing cover. A very tense meeting ensues between the Minister of Magic and the Prime Minister.

10. Smartest answer I’ve seen.

Hogwarts wouldn’t close for COVID.

Hogwarts didn’t even close when Magical Hitler returned from the dead and was conducting an active pogrom in the area and had some of his people as infiltrators running the place.

9. I would pay to see that.

Every single lesson taught via howler.

RON WEASLEY I KNOW YOU AREN’T PAYING ATTENTION EVEN WITH THIS HOWLER. REMEMBER, IT’S LEVIOSA, NOT LEVIOSA, YOU F%CKWIT.

8. No one admitted Voldemort was a real threat until like the last book.

But yeah like it did stay open when an ancient racist monster was clearly on a rampage, so your point stands that probably wouldn’t close for a mere pandemic

But there was nothing clear about the monster or even any proof that there was a monster. They had no idea til the end of the book how or why the victims had been paralyzed. The staff took the precaution of mandating that everyone travel in groups accompanied by professors, which was about the best they could reasonably do with the attacks being a mystery. Plus, the basilisk ultimately paralyzed several people and a cat with no fatalities, while a disease is a clear threat killing huge amounts of people.

Also, wasn’t there a point where Harry overheard Dumbledore stating that they would likely have to shutdown soon if the mystery wasn’t solved? Sure it took them the better part of a year to get to that point, but it was there as a last resort option.

7. You’re obviously not paying attention.

You think Poppy fu*king Pomfrey, the bossiest witch ever, wouldn’t have a potion against something mere as Covid?

6. But they would just conjure their masks.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Maskaban.

5. Best typo ever.

They could use the flu network like the talking head thing, talking patronous’s, 2 way mirror’s as shown in books 5&7, chalk boards that have a protiant charm on them like the DA’s coins.

So many possibilities. And I’m not a Harry Potter nerd at all!

4. A pretty accurate description.

Poor Harry. An entire year of Dudley throwing tantrums because he is not allowed outside to meet his buddies and also no one to bully except Harry.

Uncle Vernon going on about how this is all fake, yet wishes it on Harry so that they can just dump him at a hospital where hopefully he’d just die because that is what Dursleys do for Potters. That wish is sabotaged by aunt Petunia from the get go, who just at the mention of anything covid-related starts disinfecting the entire house and everyone in it.

As a result everyone has lost all skin on their body from her not just making them wash their hands constantly, but also bathing in chemicals to eradicate all traces of the outside world. No one can smell anything anymore due to noses being overwhelmed, which leads to Petunia being convinced everyone is sick and the cycle starts again.

Harry is not allowed to use magic, since he is a) not in Hogwarts, b) around muggles and c) has no school supplies as they all had to be disinfected by Petunia, which she did by burning them. Hedwig is not allowed inside, because who knows what diseases birds carry, and gets to stay with the Weasleys.

I think I just turned it into Petunia and the Barrel of Purell..

3. They might have to rethink the “magic outside of Hogwarts rule.

Just spitballing here since I’m not like super well versed on Harry Potter lore, read the first book and watched all the movies. Anyway I think a big issue would be that if I remember correctly, it’s essentially a rule that you can’t use magic as a student when you aren’t on campus?

Like I get that you could say “well classes are still in session so they would just have a waiver to practice at home”, but the issue is that when they practice spells on campus they have like a master level professor right there with them and their school’s magical nurses office available so when things go haywire you have someone who can jump right in and counter the spell or whatever and people trained in healing any sort of magical mishap all there.

If you are practicing at home and turn yourself into a frog or something then I would imagine even if a professor can see it via crystal ball or something then there is to be some range limit on their ability to step in and people like Ron seem to live out in the middle of nowhere, or worse still you might have a student like Harry who doesn’t have like permanent residence in the magical world and lives in the muggle world and good luck getting that home study approved or getting them help of something goes wrong without a big scandal.

2. Those muggle problems.

It’s not closed.

They probably don’t even know what covid is. some

Muggle thing only muggles get, probably.

If anyone gets sick then they’ll just have em chug potions until they are fine again.

1. “Caught with their bubble down.”

They wouldn’t close, they would cast a magic bubble around all students and call the practice of keeping it up and active “extra credit”. Any student caught with their bubble down loses points for their house.

Any student showing symptoms is sent to madam pomfrey to suffer in shame for their muggle level ineptitude. After all, covid is preventable without magic, add magic into the mix and suddenly there are no excuses.

It’s a good thing I’m not a teacher there, because I am so not this creative!

Do you have an idea to add to the list? Share it with me in the comments!

Important Lessons That 2020 Has Taught All of Us

What have we learned in 2020 so far?

It’s kind of impossible to say. On the one hand, it feels like the year in which we all lived a thousand lifetimes and gained the perspectives and heights of wisdom that come with such figurative reincarnations. On the other hand, it kinda feels like we’ve gone nowhere and done nothing and learned jack squat. Maybe the truth is somewhere in between?

To shed some light on the subject, let’s have a look at these ten 2020 memes and see if we can discern a lesson from them.

10. Nothing makes sense

God is just extremely drunk right now.

9. Protect yourself

They saw their chance and they took it, by golly.

8. Stock up on arrows

Those folks had it right from the start.

7. Take every opportunity

You never know what year might be your last chance to really start some sh*t with Uncle Ron.

6. It’s a nice excuse

With an attitude like that, not many people are gonna ask questions.

5. It’s the little things that count

If only I could pretend to be busy around other people instead of pretending to be busy around no people.

4. The more things change, the more they stay the same

How many dudes have just been riding this wave?

3. Standards will shift

I don’t even wanna know what the 2021 goals will be.

2. Remember to excuse yourself

I can feel the heat of a thousand grocery aisle stares just reading this.

1. Stay safe out there

Having to face off with this crisis hasn’t been easy, but we’re doing it.

Not sure if those are actually the most helpful lessons in the world, but at the end of the day, at least they’re lessons?

What have you learned in 2020?

Tweets That Capture this Year in a Painfully Funny Way

I don’t know how to tell you this, but, 2020 has been kinda bad.

I know, you probably need to sit down and have a glass of water or something after a revelation like that but, this is a year that has been just a little bit of a kerfuffle, if you’ll pardon the language. I’d even go so far as to say it’s been less than ideal. And you can quote me on that, controversial as it may be.

I suppose one minor upswing for which we can be grateful is the grace and wit with which the funny people of Twitter have continued to respond to these ever-weirder times. Here are ten tweets about 2020 that almost make it funny-funny.

10. True heroism

I shot a bunch of ventilators into the ocean to celebrate.

9. Do you really need to ask?

There is no way to properly pose or answer this question anymore.

8. Simply the best

Success looks a little bit different for everyone.

7. Exotic perspectives

Man, remember when THIS was all the rage?

6. Little victories, tiny defeats

What even is a “best life?” sounds like a scam.

5. Murder rates

So on top of everything you’re living in a Hitchcock movie. Neat.

4. Spooky times

Memes for the Worst Year Ever…2020

If we listen to Einstein’s theory of relativity, time moves slower or faster in different scenarios. His models of spacetime were confirmed very recently with the observation of gravitational waves, and his ideas on time in particular were expanded on greatly in 2020, when we discovered that a single year could be several centuries.

It’s been a very long one. Here are some memes to remember it by, if for some reason you’d want to.

You’re thinking of the Black Mirror episode, but we’re getting close.

Smells like pointless rebellion.
