Is jail the move this summer? Twitter seems to think so….
The one move that can’t be unmoved
Now that I've unfollowed everyone with a GoFundMe link in their bio and muted the words collusion, resistance and Katy Perry, Twitter is extremely fun again. My entire feed is memes, Insta famous gays fighting each other, and, weirdly, people confidently tweeting that jail is the move this summer. Is it? The move? I mean, it is a move.
Everyone is so hyped that incarcerated people are…flexing their many boxes of Dominos Pizza. Like sure they've got the sides that broke bitches like me can only dream of (those wings are practically $1.50 a drumstick, fuck that) but I have a harsh reality for y'all to face: you can order pizza outside of jail. No, really! You can! Try it right now. If you go on the website and pay them real human dollars, you too can get a pizza brought directly to you. 2018, huh?
Additionally! You too can make a version of a viral video craze from the comfort and relative safety of your own home. This #InMyFeelingsChallenge from within what appears to be a California correctional facility seems like a fun time, and their sky-blue uniforms are definitely an improvement from the stereotypical orange jumpsuits:
But you know what's even more fun? When your crusty sweatpants physically fuse to your body because you've been laying in the exact same position on your couch watching 8 hours of Portlandia on a Saturday. In other word: freedom.
This won't turn into a dissertation of the prison industrial complex which, we all know, is Very Bad. I'm extremely happy that some people are having a lovely time in jail, complete with garlic-butter dipping sauce. But you guys, I'm not sure jail is the move this summer. Maybe try another fun idea like getting pregnant or joining the military? Have heard good things.
The rules of 2019 have already been decided and there’s nothing we can do about it
People are already mad
by Caroline Phinney
I feel kind of bad for 2019 because people are already mad at it and it hasn't even started. It's like when you get with someone following a breakup and you're already assuming they're cheating on and lying to you, because why would anyone ever be genuine? How can you blame us though? Even if…
An Instagram influencer told us how to travel the world for free (or at least cheap AF)
Fine, I’m the Instagram influencer
by Nian Hu
So everyone's always asking me how I'm able to afford all of my many, many glamorous vacations to exotic destinations like Thailand and Greece. The answer, of course, is that I'm chronically broke and I literally wear the same three shirts over and over again. Now there's a solid money-saving hack! But another part of…
