All hail the Olive Garden. Seriously, you can make fun all you want, but it is 2018. It is a difficult time in our history. And all people want is to drown their sorrows in an endless vat of Pasta e Fagioli soup and unlimited breadsticks. And you know what? We deserve to be able to do just that.
Sure, it might not be real Italian food. Honestly, the jury is out on whether it is real food at all. But that matters not. What matters is that the Olive Garden is comforting. It is home. After all, when you're there, you're family. And we all deserve something that comforts us these days. The people of Twitter know that. The jokes in the gallery below are all about the Olive Garden. They may seem funny, but they all represent an earnest love for the place, a recognition of this faux-Italian restaurant for exactly what it is. And for that, we appreciate them.
Listen, everyone loves the Olive Garden.Unabashedly. Unironically. It's great, and if you don't think so, you clearly don't have a soul. These jokes are for the true Olive Gardeners out there.

To NarniaHonestly, I would visit Narnia a lot if I had to eat a giant bowl of Olive Garden salad to get there.
Different Olive GardenLook, sometimes you need a change of scenery. That doesn't necessarily mean you need a change of menu.

Purse breadsticksWhat, you don't always carry Olive Garden breadsticks in your purse? They're great for snacks, weapons, bandages... They can pretty much be used for anything.
Time on EarthThe salad isn't limited either. The Olive Garden itself responded to this tweet with the powerful, "No truer words have ever been spoken, Thomas."
