18 Funny Things I Saw This Week That Made Me Extremely Happy For No Reason

Hello, fine people! In the year 2023, it’s (depressingly) clear that the internet contains its fair share of rancor, divisiveness, and stupidity (bad). BUT, I dare to venture, that it also contains hilarity, creativity, and stupidity (good).

Anyway, enjoy!
