If you were hoping for a pope that’s “good on gays” you should consider how long it took to get a pope that was “good on heliocentrism”

When my mom was in university, they were out celebrating her roommate’s new “fiancee” status and came home drunk to 2 feet of freshly fallen snow in their building’s parking lot. They OF COURSE had an epic snowball fight, and OF COURSE at the end of it discovered that the ring had fallen off. It was around 5 in the morning and as people woke up for the day they noticed these girls frantically digging through snow, and eventually they had about 20 people helping them sift through all of this freshly fallen snow and actually found the ring! Someone had called the paper (small town) and they ran a story on it, but took a picture of the roommate with a random guy who had been helping, saying that was her fiance, and her real fiance was so angry about this mistaken caption that he called off the wedding! So she was for sure 100% much better off NOT marrying the guy, and actually dated the fake fiance for a bit after (they had met in the ring search). Not sure what the moral is here. Always lose your engagement rings to find out if your future husband is a tool or not? I dunno. I like the story anyway.

Dog Lloyd Wrong doesn’t understand self-portraiture.

Yeah, but Gabe almost had to do links that day, so really you both evened out.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: I am very happy that FLW’s comment made the number one spot. I just hope it eases some of the residual pain left over from when Gabe’s life was ruined by links. RIP Gabe. Long Live Links. Congratulations, friends!]

[Assoc. Ed. Note: This is in response to Jeb’s post of a Nicki Minaj GIF (from the music video “Monster”) in the “Who Should Play The Beast In The Beauty And The Beast Remake” or whatever thread. I definitely do not think there was any racist intent behind the post, but I am sorry if you felt that there was! I also don’t really think you should’ve been down-voted for expressing your discomfort, but here we are.]

On a personal note, this is my favorite type of videogum post. In my VG utopia, it would be all recaps and fart/poop/pee stories.
