Shoutout to all the teenage girls with so much anxiety about the state of the world that they can’t even enjoy a damn sleepover. Not saying that was us ten years ago, not saying it wasn’t! Ashleigh Stanczak’s sketch really captures the giggles and horror of a slumber party.
This sketch is so funny it makes us want to hide under our blankets and sob for the rest of the afternoon. Which is probably what good satire should do? Writer Kerry McGuire and director David Zwick imagined how we’re all going to live a couple years from now when mass shootings are just another fact of life, like rain or traffic or the sheer mind-numbing terror of not knowing if your loved ones are going to come home safe at the end of the day. Y’know, the usual.
THANK GILDA IT’S FRIDAY!!!!
While we wait for the weekend to really start, shall we enjoy some top quality funny tweets together? Let’s.

Idk saying you’re not a feminist in 2016 is like saying you’re pro-segregation in 1980 like dawg you missed the boat.

It’s only once you’re a little older and wiser that you realize the “one that got away” was a jean jacket you left at a guy’s house in 2003.

In case ur wondering if sexism is real, we say “leaked nudes” instead of “stolen property.”
