They say that laughter is the best medicine but is that still true if you end up crying afterward? I don't mean, like, you're laughing so hard that you start to cry. I mean that something starts out being funny, and you laugh...only to have some sort of soul-crushing realization that what started as a joke is actually way too true about your real life.
Not trying to make you have some sort of identity crisis or anything. Just asking!
Honestly, I think laughing and then crying can actually be pretty cathartic! At least after you've cried yourself into a puddle and questioned every single decision you've ever made throughout your entire life, you can look back on the good times when you were laughing.
If this whole laugh-then-cry process sounds like something you'd like to experience, then you're gonna love the very true comedians of Twitter.
They're the pros of making people have a self-reflective chuckle.So, grab the popcorn...and the box of Kleenex, and let's get ready to laugh. And then cry.
Just IMAGINE this.Imagine that student's utter horror at realizing what they've just done. At least Professor What's His Nuts seems to have embraced his new identity.
This is hilarious...until it's not.

This is a tough one.If you haven't watched The Devil Wears Prada for a few years, I recommend not re-visiting it unless you're ready to have your dreams crushed a little bit.

Don't panic.And second of all, just do that thing where you rub it off and then try it again. (Third of all, let me just call my successful friend real quick. She will spot me some money.)
