"THAT'S BLASPHEMY! MARY ONLY HAD SEX WITH GOD OUTSIDE OF HER MARRIAGE!"
Political protests are always a little more fun when the protesters are a little more fabulous. No matter how the Supreme Court rules on the issue this time around, popular opinion has shifted enough that the writing appears to be on the wall for opponents of marriage equality. That's a little bittersweet, since the writing on these pro-gay marriage protest signs is entertaining enough that we're definitely going to miss them when the battle is finally over nationwide.[ Via Reddit, Reddit, Buzzfeed, Buzzfeed, Carina C.

Good behavior causes bad heartbreak. (Via)
Witnessing these nasty breakups in person would be incredibly uncomfortable. But when you can watch from a safe, projectile-free distance on Facebook, it's like seeing a building implode. A building with two very annoying people inside. On the other hand, maybe all of these couples could've stayed together longer if they communicated by any means other than social media.[ Via Lamebook, CollegeHumor, LOLSnaps, Reddit, 9GAG, Claire R., Lamebook, Reddit, Reddit, Lamebook, Lamebook, Lamebook, CollegeHumor, Unfriendable, Lamebook, Failbook, Lamebook, FB Humor, Lamebook ]

After spending a good chunk of this year gathering Facebook posts entertaining enough for public consumption and/or ridicule, it felt less like we were putting together a humor website and more like we were preparing our PhD dissertation in sociology. These 50 posts were selected out of the hundreds we've shared with you throughout the year. They reflect all of the wit, self-absorption, shamelessness, and astounding unfamiliarity with basic grammar that makes Facebook such a wonderland of human frailty and woefully regrettable over-sharing. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did, and we thank you for being quick-fingered enough to screenshot your friends' more embarrassing status updates before they could click delete. Consider this list a year-end toast to everyone who makes Facebook the wonderful nightmare that it is...

Sorry, but you fail the exam for your poetic license. (via)
You'd think people wouldn't sit in a chair and have permanent ink embedded in their skin without making absolutely, positively certain every letter of it was correct — but if you'd think, you wouldn't be these people. Part of us wishes every tattoo parlor could be immediately outfitted with a Dictionary, an AP Stylebook, and an up-to-date copy of Strunk and White's Elements of Style. But the other part of us knows that would deprive us of photos like these. If you've seen any egregious tattoo typos or, God forbid, have one of your own, please send it to us for our continued amusement.[ Via FailBlog, Lamebook, imgur, Huffington Post, DailyPix, Roflhub, Redditor GhostOfPluto, A Series Of Choices, Lost Among Trees, Vegan-Dweeb, You Make Harry Sad, Yeah?, Jason FN Saint ]
A dad posted a picture of his baby on Facebook, and then his friend turned it into a huge new meme. (UPDATED)posted 02/19/2014
"Let's send out a press release about this meme. Type it up and copy it onto Silly Putty."
Some random father out there posted a nice photo of his baby eating breakfast on Facebook. Then, as friends do, a friend of his took the picture and put it on reddit, saying he couldn't help but imagine the baby saying "Look, tell Clyde he's a dumbass... and then fire him." Which, to be fair, is definitely what it looks like he's saying. Reddit agreed with him, and turned him into the most exciting new kid meme since the 60-Year-Old Girl.
Still, this should serve as a good lesson to parents of young children out there: if you insist on having the right to pollute our Facebook pages with your pudgy-faced progeny, everyone else reserves the right to turn them into hilarious memes which may or may not affect their self-esteem some day.

The hand-posted flyer is perhaps the cheapest way to spread the word about lost dogs, found cats, and creepy looking men offering low-cost guitar lessons. But most of the time, those flyers serve as nothing more than reading material for people waiting to get into a bathroom or on a bus. The flyers collected here acknowledge this reality, and they respond by trying to do nothing more than entertain whatever pair of eyes happen to be aimed in their direction. You now have no excuse for wasting all your time on the Internet when it's perfectly clear you could be wasting paper out in the real world.[ Via BuzzFeed, The High Definite, The Daily What, Work LOLs, Geek-Art, Reddit, imgur, Todd Lamb, The Daily What, Work LOLs, Funny Daze, Squidoo, Fropki, Uniquedaily, Pleated-Jeans, CollegeHumor, Flickr, Phil Jones, Sweet Bird Of Mischief, Bizarre Signs, Speedway J Graham, Ubuweb, Neatorama, imgur, Triple M, Exquisite Crap, Jennythewren, SB Nation, Dean M., LA Weekly, Fun XPres, imgur, Jacqueline M., Acid Cow, Pleated Jeans ]

Having sifted through our Twitter feed every weekday to gather our daily Tweet Picks, we've assembled a pretty comprehensive document of the year 2011. According to the people we follow, the biggest historical milestones of 2011 were Kim Kardashian's divorce, Steve Jobs's death, Facebook's redesign and all that crap Netflix tried to pull. We've gathered here the 50 standouts from our Tweet Picks to create a nice, succinctly worded snapshot of the year that was.

Bathroom walls give opinionated urinators everywhere a makeshift, bacteria-covered forum for virulent racism, misogyny, homophobia and, worst of all, philosophy. Of course, we'd never advocate one of these obscene acts of vandalism — unless it's a smart-ass response to a previous act of vandalism.[ Via imgur, From the Bathroom Wall, Reddit, Reddit, lolgraff, Flickr, Andrew Backwell, The Poke, lolgraff, Todd C., Pictures of Walls ]

JAGOFF - The second-best 90s TV show about Navy lawyer jerks.
When you saw the trailer for that movie Flash of Genius where Greg Kinnear plays the guy who invented windshield wipers, you were probably thinking, "If I ever decide to kill myself, it will probably happen while I'm watching a movie about the guy who invented windshield wipers." But as these notes will attest, the windshield wiper is a seriously underrated medium of expression, allowing countless anonymous people to express their furious, amusing, and occasionally psychotic observations to their fellow motorists. All thanks to a little rubber blade against a piece of glass.[ Via SFist, Buzzfeed, Passive-Aggressive Notes, The High Definite, 9GAG, Reddit, HuffPost Comedy, Happy Place user Kelly Morgan, Redditor Jungle_Bob, Lamebook, Rick Tait on Flickr, FailBlog, That Will Buff Out, Lamebook, Redditor iamnotapokemon, Lea Russell, Redditor aschapm, Redditor TheNightMan5000, Redditor zoomski, Robbie's Blog, Japemonster, Redditor jcatleather, Redditor Phildo4prez ]
