What’s right about 2019 already: 10 New Video Games To Get Excited About
Hating on Craft Beers
Looking at you, Bud Light. Is Anheuser-Busch really threatened by the craft beer movement enough to commit an entire commercial campaign making fun of the industry?

Making Fun of Millennials
We get it. Older folks don't like us. They're not the first old grumps to have disdain for the younger generation following them. Move on. It's not completely our fault we're broke. And avocado toast is delicious.

Outrageous Gender Reveals
Gender reveals were really cool in the beginning. But even the "exploding baseball" trick is tired. And for those who like to blow things up? Do yourself a favor and just wait until the baby is born next time, you know, like how humanity did it for the first 9,999 years.

Hating on Cats
We get it. Cats aren't as lovable as dogs. But can't we just appreciate cats for what they are: independent ditch panthers who are affectionate when they want to be and vicious felines when they want to hunt?

'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'
When we heard this show was still on television, we had to double check our phones to make sure we weren't stuck in a time warp. Why is "reality TV' still a thing, and why is this family still part of it?

Copy and Paste Facebook Hoaxes
