Donald Trump Threw Paper Towels to Hurricane Victims in Puerto Rico. The Internet Had Thoughts
President Donald Trump’s latest viral move is paper towel throwing. Tuesday marked President Trump’s first visit to Puerto Rico, which was ravaged by Hurricane Maria two weeks ago. During a stop at Calvary Chapel in San Juan, he came face to face with some of the U.S. territory’s residents in need of relief. Perhaps drawing on his reality TV experience, he launched several rolls of paper towels into a crowd of residents, some of whom caught the supplies, some who didn’t. People were quick to capture the action shots, and it wasn’t long before it was a meme. A news editor couldn’t wait f...

Steven Seagal Called the NFL Protests ‘Disgusting.’ Here’s What the Internet Thought of That
Actor Steven Seagal became the subject of online mockery Wednesday after he said on British television that recent kneeling protests at NFL games were both “outrageous” and “disgusting.” Speaking via satellite from Moscow, where he now lives, Seagal told the hosts of Good Morning Britain that he disagreed with the movement started by professional football players who chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality. His remarks echo those of President Donald Trump, who has called the action “disgraceful” and suggested that athletes who do not st...

Nineteen years ago, Google began its ambitious task of organizing the Internet. This Wednesday, the search engine celebrates with a new interactive Doodle that directs users to some of the company’s hidden gems developed over the years; games, virtual tours, rabbit-holes of obscure histories and more. “They say life is full of surprises, and Google’s history is chock-full of them,” the company said. “In fact, we wouldn’t be here without them.” The “happy surprise that started it all,” Google said, was when co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page met on the campus of Stan...

It’s officially been 30 years since The Princess Bride opened in theaters and the Internet is celebrating appropriately — by riffing on the movie’s most quotable lines, of course.

Beyonc é Just Sent an Army of Beyoncés to Break the Internet
When Beyoncé posted a photo of her one-month-old twins, Sir Carter and Rumi, on Instagram in July, the internet predictably went into meltdown. The picture received more than 700,000 likes within half an hour of its publication, and within 24 hours it had spawned numerous parodies on social media. But less than three months later, the Formation singer has broken the internet again, this time with six stunning images posted on her Instagram page, where the superstar boasts a whopping 106 million followers (and follows no one in return).

Hilarious Elf on the Shelf Memes Taking Over the Internet Are Christmas Come Early
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without an Elf on the Shelf and Christmas seems to have started early on the internet. A few weeks ago—well before the start of the Christmas season—the internet was slowly taken over by rhyming Elf on the Shelf memes and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to let up anytime soon. According to Polygon, the jokes all started on Aug. 27 when Tumblr user dankmemeuniversity uploaded a photo captioned, “You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf, now get ready for…” along with a photo of Pokémon’s Ash Ketchum lying in the trash, encouraging vie...

The 2017 Emmys were full of hilarious moments — from Dave Chappelle’s shoutout to D.C. public schools to John Oliver’s praise for Oprah — but the sneaky best bit of the night may have been Jackie Hoffman’s reaction to losing. Hoffman was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or TV-Movie for her role as Mamacita in Feud: Bette and Joan. However, the Emmy in the category was awarded to Laura Dern for her work in Big Little Lies — an announcement that prompted Hoffman to scream “Damnit!” multiple times while the camera was still on her.

After Apple wrapped up its September keynote which featured announcements on its Apple Watch, Apple TV and, of course, its iPhone lineup, including the 10th anniversary model iPhone X., there was one key casualty.

The Internet Is Having a Hilarious Time With These iPhone 8 vs. iPhone X Memes
On Tuesday, Apple revealed not one but two new models of iPhone: the iPhone 8 (and larger-sized 8 Plus), and the iPhone X (pronounced like the number ten). (No word on why they mysteriously skipped the model 9, though.) As expected, Apple fans and critics were out in full force to eat up every last bite of the livestreamed announcement. The internet quickly digested the information, and spat it back out in the form of… meme responses, of course. While the iPhone 8 is quite similar to the iPhone 7, it changes things up with a glass back and wireless charging, plus other technical upgrades. The iPhone X, meanwhile, sta...

Seconds after Apple unveiled its next generation of iPhones at Tuesday’s big Apple Event, the inevitable hot takes from tech fans started rolling in. One thing that sets the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus apart is the switch to a seamless glass panel on both the front and back of the phone. (Technically, this is meant to assist in the new wireless charging functionality.) While aesthetically beautiful in its simplicity, the updated design element quickly lead some to shudder with fear.
