Not so long ago, when people did or said something super funny, the resulting amusement was usually short-lived and enjoyed by an extremely small audience, if any. The opportunity to make millions of people laugh out loud was exclusively reserved for renowned professional comedians with HBO specials.
Well not anymore.
Thanks to Twitter, people now have a platform on which their silly jokes and random thoughts are capable of evoking laughter heard around the world.
Gaining public attention on a global scale no longer requires 50 seconds of fame; it can now be done in 280 characters or less.
These everyday people became celebrated comics overnight when their hilarious tweets tore the roof off the world's greatest stage- the internet- and broke the 100K retweet barrier.

The second coming of Uber has arrived.We're not sure why this guy is so surprised that Jesus is rolling deep in a Honda Accord. Everybody knows that Jesus keeps it super humble in the possessions department. We're pretty sure he may have lectured us a time or two on the subject. It's when Jesus pulls up in a Ferrari that we need to start worrying about the apocalypse. But in this case, Jesus was just helping a brother out. He washed 12 of his buddies' dirty ass feet. Of course, he'll give you a ride to work.
The child's got style.I've seen a lot of different hand gestures to express this universal message but never have I seen a maneuver so suspenseful, graceful, and yet defiantly divaesque. Pray for her parents and future spouse. They've got some serious attitude ahead.

It's time our pets start carrying their weight around the house.We're not sure if this idea wins for most lazy or most genius way to do someone a favor, but we're leaning toward genius. Just don't tell PETA, as we're sure they're busy drafting a puppy safety announcement on pet choking hazards along with filing a change.org petition to remove all animals from this home. But we know innovation when we see it. Just maybe stick to using your pets for all in-home deliveries and let your kids focus on their current household duties. Like destroying it along with your sanity. They've gotten so good at it and really enjoy it. For all other things, you can count on Spot to deliver. Just don't forget to tip. He accepts treats.
It really has.

In her dad's defense, he was just attempting to avoid any potential confusion.You can't fault the man for clarifying. She's a beautiful girl and certainly does not resemble the wildlife in any way. But in this day and age, people marry goats and who knows, some people may have sea lion daughters. Clearly, this dad knows that people never want to be presumptuous when they leave a comment on social media. The girl pictured on the left could be this man's legally adopted sea lion daughter's translator or massage therapist. This dad was merely sparing his Facebook friends from having to verbally tip-toe around the possibility. You just never know. Better safe than sorry.
