Blake Lively And Anna Kendrick Teamed Up Online To Roast Ryan Reynolds

0

Lively gives as good as she gets in the exchanges, much to the delight of everyone on the internet.

Now, as the world of entertainment would have it, Blake Lively is starring in an upcoming film with the also hilarious Anna Kendrick.

image

If you’re not familiar with some of Kendrick’s finer social media posts, her Twitter account is a treasure trove of comedy.

Now this is most definitely a play to help promote to Lively and Kendrick’s A Simple Favor online, but the two basically teamed up for the ultimate Ryan Reynolds roast in the comments section of Lively’s Instagram post about the film’s release.

She included this amazing caption, suggesting that getting it on with Kendrick really wouldn’t be cheating, seeing as she’s a “hotter, female(r) version” of her hubby.

image

A comment that Anna was quick to pounce on immediately, resulting in a glorious double call-out of the Deadpool star.

image

Naturally, people were waiting in anticipation to see when/how Reynolds would strike.

I mean, the man is known for his quick wit and A-1 social media commentary game, so they understandably called him out, expecting a response.

image

But after such a concentrated, dual-pronged effort, there wasn’t much the man could do but capitulate.

And he did so with grace.

image

I mean, at that point, it’s all he could do.

Now there’s been plenty of other times Lively righteously got back at Reynolds for his online tomfoolery. Like when she got back at his infamous Birthday Crop photo with this excellent Instagram post.

That’s right, she posted a picture of Reynolds standing with the “other” Ryan, Mr. Gosling. Naturally, she cropped her hubby out of the photo.

Then there was this most excellent Valentine’s day exchange between the two of them, joking about dating apps.

And the time she pointed out that Reynolds was giving some serious looks to his Woman in Gold co-star, the legendary Helen Mirren.

How could anyone forget this “no filter” shot Reynolds uploaded of Lively on Instagram where she was looking particularly less than glamorous.

In Lively’s defense though, I’d take her disheveled look over the monstrosity that was Reynolds’ attempt at baking Christmas cookies any day of the week.

People Are Sharing Their Worst Summer Vacation Fails And Some Are Plain Horrifying

People Are Sharing Their Worst Summer Vacation Fails And Some Are Plain Horrifying

When you’re a kid, summer is everything. School’s out. The weather’s warm. All you want to do is get up as early as possible and spend all day outside sweating up a storm, chilling by the pool, and eating all sorts of sugary, iced treats.

When you’re an adult, summer is slightly less “fun” because you don’t have your folks taking care of everything for you. You have to plan the summer vacation while still going to work and staying on top of your kids to make sure they’re not destroying the house while you’re away.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun, which is why you planned for a family getaway out of town so you can enjoy a new city, some new sites, new food and hopefully new and happy experiences.

image

Like all good things in life, however, your summer vacation will ultimately be tested. Things will come and try to ruin your fun and it’s up to you to react to them accordingly and do whatever is possible to make sure that you and your family and friends end up having an amazing time.

Even if you manage to get a see-through bathroom.

Or if you get arrested for accidentally sleeping in a room that doesn’t belong to you.

Because we’re constantly thinking about what to do next and are juggling so many different requests in our heads simultaneously during a vacation, it’s easy to let a few things go unnoticed.

Flying can get a big expensive, so packing into a huge old station wagon that’s prone to overheating is an American family tradition.

This next story is why you should always bring a spare…of anything that’s vital.

And maybe check your surroundings before you relieve yourself.

One wisecrack could definitely ruin the whole family trip, so choose your words wisely.

Just another reason why I hate camping.

This woman’s thread is another compelling argument against camping.

Make sure you always secure your camper.

Maybe don’t mistake Disney characters as pinatas.

If you’re afraid of flying or can’t afford a fancy trip to Europe, just go there on a stick.

Nothing like a broken face to ruin a perfectly nice vacation.

Trash bags are not a good substitute for luggage.

Hurtling down sand dunes is never fun.

Old school camera problems.

Contrary to what you thought as a little kid, scary things were happening outside the closet, not inside.

This Woman’s Boyfriend Asked For World Cup Updates Via Text And She Delivered In Hilarious Detail

This Woman’s Boyfriend Asked For World Cup Updates Via Text And She Delivered In Hilarious Detail

Even people who never watch soccer (i.e. me) tend to get a little crazy around World Cup time. Serious FOMO occurs and I don’t want to miss a single game.

Any other time of the year, I wouldn’t care about a game between Japan and Colombia, but for some reason, I was upset I couldn’t watch the final 20 minutes of that game when my stream messed up. I’ve never even been to those countries and probably couldn’t name a single player on any of their national teams, but I wanted to know everything that happened nonetheless.

I could only imagine what World Cup Fever is like for people whose countries are actually playing. The stress, the anxiety, the depression, the ecstasy of a well-placed goal. It’s all very, very exciting.

Missing out on the action of a game is certainly not an option when you’re that intense of a fan, but when your country’s playing, it’s going to look pretty suspicious in the office if everyone suddenly gets sick or calls out of work. Or if there happens to be a “milestone life event” of a loved one or whatever, like a wedding or baptism, it stinks that missing it for a very important game isn’t a valid excuse.

So that’s when you have someone you trust, like a loved one, provide you with up-to-the-minute coverage of the game so you don’t miss a single beat. Which is exactly what this guy asked his girlfriend, Twitter user @lightningstarr to do when England was squaring up against Tunisia.

She obliged his request, but took a few liberties with the “updates,” going into a level of detail that was maybe a bit more than he asked for.

And the results were absolutely hilarious.

image

And she responded, still totally in character.

In fact, her commentary was so good, it got Americans interested in watching the sport.

And she provided some key tips they should consider if they decided to become fans of the game.

As it turns out, @lightningstarr wasn’t the first to provide scintillating, overly-detailed information on soccer matches via text.

Rachel Haird during a Wales game a couple of years back related the same “extraneous” information via WhatsApp, and it was glorious.

image

Her messages were rife with jokes and awkward metaphors that were hilarious.

Honestly, I’d pay to hear commentary from Haird and @lightningstarr.

image

The sheer amount of jokes she’s able to squeeze in such a short amount of time, and the fact that I’m hearing it in a British announcer’s voice while reading them is amazing.

image

Seems like I’m not the only one who’s jonesing for some live commentary from these women.

Definitely something to read in between goals.

This Mom Was The Ultimate Wingwoman For Her Daughter But Dad Wasn’t Having It

0

Talking about any aspect of my romantic life with my parents was strictly off-limits—mostly because I was from a religious background and my folks made it very clear that there was only one road to romantic fulfillment: through the careful, formal pursuit of marriage.

The more family members involved in this pursuit, the better. Formal dinner gatherings, awkward conversations between a young man and young woman about career goals and aspirations, with no physical contact whatsoever. God forbid I mentioned I liked someone who wasn’t Albanian, or who wasn’t at least a few years younger than me, or even expressed remote interest in another man.

Eventually, my folks came around and got out of the whole arranged-marriage-lite mindset and accepted that I was dating people—which will hopefully make things easier for my younger siblings should they ever want to mention that there’s someone they’re seeing.

Because basically any conversation about “dating” was completely off the table while I was growing up, I definitely want to make my own kids feel like they can speak to me about anything. I know ultimately there are going to be certain things that they’ll want to keep off the table or only share with their friends, but I never want them to feel like if they’re seeing or talking to someone that they should keep it a secret.

With that being said, I don’t think I’ll take such an active role in my kids’ romantic lives that I’ll be going around looking for any suitable girlfriends/boyfriends and handing out their phone numbers to them. Which is what happened to Twitter user Maliyah.

image

While her mother was at what looks like a high school baseball game, she saw a tall drink of water she thought her daughter would be interested in.

So she stalked him and asked him for his number.

Not only that, but she even managed to snap a photo of the hunk in question and sneak-text it to Maliyah.

image

Along with some stats to paint a clearer picture.

The teen’s father wasn’t too thrilled about the proactive approach mom was taking in hooking Maliyah up with a dude.

image

But it looks like he doesn’t have that much to worry about when it comes to Carlos because from the way Maliyah’s tweeting about it, they can’t be a thing.

She has a thing for baseball players and even though the dude was at a baseball game, he doesn’t play the sport.

And Carlos revealed that his mother didn’t ask him for his number but that he volunteered it after seeing how cute Maliyah is.

It turns out that people had no chill when it came to trying to elicit personal details about the guy.

Which is a bit questionable, especially after discovering he has a girlfriend.

Maliyah’s mom isn’t the first parent to slickly try and wingwoman for their daughter via text.

There was the epic crusade of this one mom who went with her daughter to her freshman college orientation and ended up hanging out with the football team.

Now it could very well be that mom was just having herself a grand old time with some hunks while her daughter listened to some boring lectures.

But others thought she had different intentions.

Moms make the best wingwomen.

This Woman’s Story About Shutting Up A Rude, Talkative House Guest Is Incredible

0

I’m an extremely talkative person. I know a lot of that stems from the fact that I feel like I constantly need to entertain people and myself. It’s a big, big problem I’ve been working on over the past few years.

So when I catch myself talking too much, I mentally step back, I ask the other person’s thoughts on the matter, I find what’s interesting in what they’re saying and try to pursue what they want to talk about in the conversation instead of just yap, yap, yapping away like the gregarious fool that I am.

Because no one likes someone who just won’t shut the heck up about utter nonsense that’s mostly centered around themselves.

image

I only really became aware of my problem after I was dumped by someone who mentioned that they never felt like I was actually listening to them during our conversations, which was a harsh, but hugely important wake-up call for me.

A wake-up call that this chatty house guest who goes by the name of Gary sounds like he is in dire need of after spending a couple of evenings with this woman and her husband, Will. She complained about Gary’s inability to shut up in a since-removed Reddit r/relationships post, asking people for advice.

image

Thankfully, since nothing is ever really deleted off the internet someone screencapped what she posted on Twitter.

And the story is hilariously insane.

In the post, Reddit user tells the tale of Gary, who is set to stay with them for a week.

image

She reveals that the first three days of Gary’s visit has been a loquacious nightmare. Will’s old college buddy won’t stop talking and anytime they attempt to have a conversation about anything other than what Gary wants to talk about (himself) he just powers through and even goes so far as to talk over his hosts.

After suffering through his non-stop chatter for three entire days, she decided that she finally had enough over dinner.

image

Calling Gary out on his behavior didn’t help. Asking him to let her finish her conversation or respond with what she was talking about didn’t help either, even when his old college pal asked him to stop being such a conversation hog. Gary just kept attempting to plow through and talk about whatever he wanted to talk about.

That’s when our OP decided to take matters into her own hands and give Gary a taste of his own medicine. By not acknowledging him in any way, shape, or form, while taking his dinner entree from him and eating it silently.

image

What’s crazy to me is that Bri (OP), thinks that she was wrong for eating Gary’s steak, which I don’t think is the case at all. If everything she wrote about this guest is true, it sounds like showing him what it feels like to be completely disregarded is the only way to handle this situation.

It also helps that imagining the entire situation is just super hilarious.

People think Bri’s move was absolutely perfect and totally justified.

It’s hard to find anyone who really feels sorry for Gary.

Especially because we’ve all met one at some point in our lives.

OP’s story resulted in a bunch of excellent puns, too. So that’s a plus.

Even though Bri deleted her Reddit post, it didn’t stop people from throwing in their two cents about how she should react.

Personally I don’t think Will has the right to be angry. Sure, Gary is his friend and all, but honestly, Gary sounds like a real nightmare and he totally brought it all on himself.

25 Vending Machines That Are Definitely From The Future

0

When I think of vending machines I think of frustration. Of late hours at some government building waiting to get some bureaucratic nonsense taken care of. Or stressful times at a hospital. Unhealthy snacks and feeling gross immediately after I cave into my desire for junk food.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of awesome vending machines out there that go above and beyond the stale chips and crusty, white-dust-coated candy bar stereotype.

This Woman Invited Her Ex-Boyfriend To Her Wedding And His Song Request Is Amazing

This Woman Invited Her Ex-Boyfriend To Her Wedding And His Song Request Is Amazing

I always found it kind of weird when people maintained active, platonic relationships with their exes, especially when they were dating someone else.

That doesn’t mean I’ve never done it or at least tried to do it, but at the end of the day it always seems like one person is ultimately going to end up getting hurt because someone almost always still has feelings for the other person when things fall apart. I’ve been on both sides of that phenomenon, and it wasn’t pretty.

That being said, I’m not saying it can’t happen and that there aren’t people who are able to work out a normal, functioning relationship even after they had been previously romantically involved. But that doesn’t mean that a former couple’s “past history” isn’t still in the air. Just ask Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend.

She was at the Royal Wedding and saw her former main squeeze get betrothed to Meghan Markle in a storybook affair. Her face said it all.

The surefire way to make sure everything does not “look OK” is to overplay that everything is OK. So, in order to dispel any awkwardness, a good strategy could be to tackle it head on with some humor, right? After that initial discomfort of addressing the elephant in the room everyone can just relax.

Which might have the been the thought process behind Hayley Stamper’s ex-boyfriend’s RSVP to her wedding. The cute card also doubled as a song request form, and it’s on that short little line that her former boo dropped quite possibly the best/worst song request an ex-boyfriend could ever make.

Stamper preempted people’s responses to her hilarious and potentially awkward tweet.

She maintains that her and her ex had an amicable breakup and have managed to stay friends even after they were donezo as an item.

But that didn’t stop people from criticizing her decision nonetheless.

Others found the whole thing super hilarious.

Sometimes, wedding invitations are funny not because of an amazing response from an ex-lover, but because a couple just loves comedy.

image

Receiving a physical education in the mail in this day and age is kind of pointless, is it not?

image

But when you receive something light-hearted and funny in the mail, that could really brighten up your day.

image

Some people treat their weddings as these stuffy, garish, and overly serious affairs.

image

And the truth is, it doesn’t have to be that way.

image

It never hurts to get a little creative with some traditional formalities.

image

Because at the end of the day it is your wedding.

image

Just make it clear that the “joke” RSVPs you’re sending out are understood to be jokes.

image

I’m pretty sure the above invitation is a total joke…at least I hope it is.

This Teen Told Everybody In Town That Tom Brady Was Coming To Her Restaurant

0

Who would you freak out about meeting at work? Try to think of the most famous, cool, interesting person you’ve ever met, you’re number one star. How would you react? What would you do? Would you lose your chill and tell everybody on the planet they were there?

Okay, now imagine you’re finding out Tom Brady is coming into your place of business. 

A 19-year-old name Sarah Ananian basically reacted to Brady having reservations at her restaurant like it was the moment she’s been waiting for her entire life. Personally, I can’t imagine getting excited about meeting him, but on a slow night, it would certainly liven up the place.

According to Buzzfeed, Sarah is a waitress at a restaurant called the Wellington in Belmont, Massachusetts. It’s kind of well-known, so it’s not unheard of that a player for the New England Patriots might come there for dinner.

But when she saw Brady’s name in the reservations, she asked her manager to confirm. Could this be true?! He told her yes. And she told everybody on Snapchat.

image

And her sister spread it further.

image

But it turns out, it was all a test, which she miserably failed. The whole staff heard about Brady from Ananian, and soon after, people began gathering outside the restaurant waiting to catch a glimpse of their hero.

Eventually, the manager had to shoo the onlookers away and tell the staff in an emergency meeting it was all a joke.

But it turns out Ananian didn’t learn her lesson, because soon she was tweeting about it.

Her story went quickly viral, but a lot of people didn’t believe it:

But she insists it’s true—and she hasn’t been fired! Yet.

As a lot of people pointed out, she kinda did the restaurant a solid.

Buzzfeed reached out to confirm and get her story.

“Obviously freaking out, my first thought was to let the entire staff know,” Anian told them. “Of course, [this] made the news spread like wildfire, especially in a town like Belmont where word travels fast anyway.”

She says that once she posted to Snapchat, “a small crowd of teenage boys started to form outside across the street eating pizza.” Very casual, boys.

“That’s when I started to worry it would get big,” Ananian said. “Another handful of locals showed up in the back.”

But has she learned anything?

“I realized I probably should’ve kept the reservation to myself,” she admitted. Good call. Now Tom Brady is never coming to The Wellington.

30-Year-Old Man Evicted From His Parents’ House Gives Cringiest Interview Ever

0

For me, it was hugely a cultural thing, the “old-world” mentality of everyone living super close to each other or all piling together in one big house made getting out of my folks’ home and living on my own pretty difficult. I’m embarrassed that it wasn’t until my mid-twenties or so that I finally moved out.

But, to my credit, I pulled my own weight. I helped out with money, wasn’t a burden on anyone, and when I finally decided to grow up, take on a bunch of part-time jobs to save enough money to move out – I can’t believe I didn’t bust my hump to do so sooner.

Although the lightbulb came on rather late for me, there are some people who pull a total Matthew McConaughey and have a failure to launch.

Like 30-year-old Michael Rotondo of Syracuse, New York.

His parents were so sick and tired of his mooching behavior, his alleged inability to do chores, pay rent, or contribute any value to the family unit aside from just being their son that they sued him to evict him from their home.

Call it extreme, or extremely good parenting, but they actually went through with it and took him to court.

The judge presiding over the case heard Rotondo’s arguments and even had a few positive things to say about them, but ultimately, it wasn’t enough to stop him from being ordered to leave his family’s home.

Despite taking an $1,100 gift from his parents to help get him started to live somewhere else, Rotondo returned back home telling his parents that it “wasn’t enough” to move out. So Rotondo went back home, extending his post-firing home return to 8 years before his folks decided that they had had enough.

Michael’s story quickly went viral online, gaining the attention of several news outlets. So CNN decided to call him in for an interview that was, uh, fascinating, to say the least.

image

“Interview” is a pretty loose term: Brooke Baldwin tried to conduct a semblance of a q&a but what ensued was a confirmation that, without a shadow of a doubt, Michael Rotondo just need to grow the heck up.

Baldwin began the interview by stating that Michael is 30 and asking him flat out if he wants to find his own place. To which he summarily replied with “no.”

image

“No,” Rotondo said.

“Why not?” asked Baldwin.

Then, Rotondo pivots in a matter of seconds saying about his parent’s home:

“I don’t want to live there anymore. It’s very tense; it’s very awkward. We have to, you know, we have to share space, which may be the case where I would find myself afterwards, but I’d prefer to get out,” he said.

Baldwin pursued her questioning, asking Rotondo what stopped him and his parents from coming to an arrangement without having to go to court. Rotondo offered up a similarly contradictory, non-response. Badlwin’s face in the image still pretty much says it all.

image

“I would consider much of what they were doing to try to get me out as attacks, and what I was just, you know, trying to preserve — well, trying to do what’s best for me, which is trying to be a little more reasonable. I’ll leave — I don’t like living here, but I need reasonable time,” apparently eight years isn’t enough time.

Baldwin then flat out asked Rotondo why he doesn’t move out of his parents’ house tomorrow.

image

“I don’t have the means to do that tomorrow,” said Rotondo.

“Do you have a job?” Baldwin asked.

“No.”

“Are you trying to get a job?”

Rotondo then stumbles through a response where he says he has “plans” to “provide for himself” but doesn’t think that’s going to happen in the near future and he shouldn’t be expected to do that in the near future, either.

Then he drank some water, in the middle of the interview, to which Baldwin roasted him for: “Please take a sip of your water.”

image

Baldwin then followed up by asking Rotondo if he’d ever want to reconcile with his parents, to which he replied with, “No. No, I don’t.”

As it turns out, Rotondo has a son and he recently lost visitation rights with his child. He brought up the fact with Brooke Baldwin, something she said she was aware of and that her “heart goes out” to him.

Rotondo has become sort of a symbol of millennial laziness, a fact that people on social media have pointed out with Wedding Crashers references.

He’s being painted as a comically lazy and entitled character, and his interview with Baldwin hasn’t really helped that image at all.

When she asked him about him being the symbol of the “lazy millennial,” Rotondo provided what has to be one of the most cringeworthy parts of the interview where his self-delusion reached its peak.

He said that he didn’t consider himself a millennial because “he’s a very conservative person.”

image

“The millennials that they’re speaking to are very liberal in their ideology,” Rotondo replied.

“But you’re 30, so technically I think you are part of the millennial generation. I don’t think there’s a delineation between—” Baldwin replied.

“You’re right. But when people speak to the millennials and the… their general nature as a millennial, they speak to more liberal leanings.”

So, we’re to gather that his point is that millennials are liberal who have the mindset of people who live in their parents homes and need to be evicted to finally move out and fend for themselves, but don’t actually do it. And he’s just someone who actually expects handouts from his parents and takes them, but doesn’t embody that mindset, you know, because he’s a conservative. Right.

He ended his interview by saying that he was, indeed, a millennial. And Baldwin’s response to the entire, bizarre endeavor?
