Everyone is tweeting the Boy Scouts values after Trump turns jamboree into full-blown political rally


A Boy Scout is, apparently, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. 

That’s according to the Scout values that many are citing in contrast with President Trump’s speech at Monday’s Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. The president, who wasn’t a Boy Scout, turned the event into one of his political rallies after he said he wasn’t going to talk about politics.

He went from “who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?” to taking on health care, winning the electoral college, draining the swamp, fake news, New York cocktail parties, and the sexual proclivities of old rich men for good measure.  Read more…

Genius woman dressed as a unsolicited dick pic for an undeserving costume party


It takes balls to pull off some looks.

On Sunday, Australian writer Clementine Ford tweeted a photo of her friend dressed as an “unsolicited dick pic” — a concept millennial women are sadly all too familiar with. 

The genius costume features a penis-shaped hat and a text convo that details the lead-up to the unwanted photo. The theme of the party was “the internet,” and she really hit the nail on the head with this one.

Leslie Jones live-tweeting ‘Game of Thrones’ might be better than ‘Game of Thrones’


Game of Thrones has become the kind of show that necessitates a second-screen viewing experience, and Saturday Night Live‘s Leslie Jones’ Twitter is the perfect place for it. Jones’ live-tweeted Season 7, episode 2 “Stormborn,” and it was a gift.

Jones’ tweets alone are gold, but most of the Game of Thrones posts include video — which demands to be watched, sound on.

Um….um… Jon snow not gone do that baby. Um maybe he will like kiss a knuckle but he ain’t bending knees and shit! pic.twitter.com/dK9YZnYRRC
