This anguished cinnamon roll is probably ready to be eaten already, but the internet is not quite done with it.
In one of the strangest moments of the strangest year ever, Kanye West decided to tell a crowd of people that he didn’t vote, but if he had, it would’ve been for Trump. Kanye West also announced that he’s running for president, because, hey, if that guy can pull it off than, jeez, who’s to say Kanye can’t.

The consummate showman, West went on to tell his audience, “To black people, stop focusing on racism. We live in a racist country —that is a fact.” Classic rule in showbiz: When you’re losing your audience, double down on the thing they don’t like.
That’s when things started to get even crazier, and people started throwing things at Kanye, presumably tomatoes, like in a 1930s Popeye cartoon because that’s just more fun.
At this point, it definitely felt like even Kanye recognized that he was losing them — honestly, it was probably all the objects being hurled in his general direction that clued him in — so he went on to make more confusing statements.

All in all, I think people got what they paid for, which is a great time, listening to some great music.
This isn't the first time Kanye hasn't recieved some real-time feedback. Last year, the crowd at a Golden State Warriors booed the rapper for just being at the game. They did, however, show some love for George Lopez, so again, everything is the weirdest always.
Overnight, Bruno Mars dropped his new album, 24K Magic. Unsurprisingly, the album put Twitter under its spell.
But don’t take it from me, check out what Twitter thinks.
You might remember last year, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wanted to show off his pearly new interns, and the Internet showered Ryan with praise for collecting such an accurate representation of America. It’s all collected on Twitter under #InternsSoWhite.
Well, they’ve done it again.
With the Vice President-elect Mike Pence at the selfie stick, the new dawn of a unified Republican Party showed off their, uh, diverse team. And just like last time, Twitter will have its say.
Check it out:
Thanksgiving’s coming up, and that’s not fun for anyone. You have to visit these people you didn’t even choose to be associated with, eat the driest bird, and hopefully not get into a fight with the people who raised and clothed you.
Wouldn’t it be great to get away to place where your cup is never empty.
Why not check out Abruzzo, Italy? Last month, the village installed a brand new wine fountain that flows with the red stuff that you crave 24/7. Yes, you read correctly, a fountain that pours red wine all day, everyday. It’s all you can drink brunch all the time. You can even check out the remains of Jesus’ disciple Thomas while there. Try not to cry.
The fountain is open now. Check it out.
So, let’s see: you can drink free wine, see some really old remains, and avoid a family argument? Seems like a no brainer.
Tired of “mansplaining” in the workplace? Well, if you live in Sweden, you can get a little relief from the tireless, know-it-all attitude of chauvinistic co-workers.
With a new mansplaining supportline, Sweden’s largest Union, Unionen, has opened phone lines to all members when “male colleagues give them unsolicited lectures on things they already understand,” reports The Independent.
Unionen launched the service on Monday to their 600,000 members, who will be able to call “from 10am to 4pm everyday for a week as part of a campaign to highlight and stamp out the insidious and damaging practice.”
"The hotline will advise upset and frustrated callers on what action they should take next, and aims to help them move on. But there are no set answers, instead the people staffing the line will have the freedom to say what they want, based on their own experiences."
The organization defines "mansplaining" as when “a man explains something to a woman without being asked, particularly something which she might already know more about than the man.”
The Independent did a little more digging and reports, “A study by the American Psychological Association found that men ‘tend to overestimate their intelligence to a much greater extent than women’ and showed that ‘self-assurance in men grows with age.’”
So, gross dudes operating under the assumption that they know more than women, time to give it a rest.
There’s a new president, so there’s no more time to stand around. The Mannequin Challenge is over, and it’s time to move, take action, and cower in fear.
At least that’s the MO of the new viral sensation that’s sweeping high schools around Vine or Snapchat or whatever kids are using these days. Personally, I’m 952-years-old, so it’s all Myspace to me.
This new challenge is so easy, it’s almost instinctual. Someone yells, “Trump is coming” to a group of people, and everyone runs away in fear. It’s not so different from a Tokyo resident in a Godzilla movie, except much more real.
The challenge is barely funny. It’s more just a thing to look at, nod your head, and say, “Yeah, that sounds about right.”
