10 Things It Would Be A Shame To Forget

Waiting for statistics class today, my mind wandered around and recalled a few random things that we must never forget under any circumstances. Here are the precious memories:

1. That time Rand Paul was briefly detained by the TSA

 (I swear I had a dream about this incident once)

2. When the guitarist from Rage Against the Machine fried Paul Ryan for citing them as his favorite band in a Rolling Stone article

I wonder what Ryan's favorite Rage song is? Is it the one where we condemn the genocide of Native Americans? The one lambasting American imperialism? Our cover of "Fuck the Police"? Or is it the one where we call on the people to seize the means of production? So many excellent choices to jam out to at Young Republican meetings!

3. That hot summer day when Twitter kept talking about "daddy appropriation:"

4.  Pajama Boy, the photo advocating for Obamacare that conservatives freaked out about:

5. When Michelle Bachmann tweeted that "All Labs Matter" picture, inducing uncomfortable shifting in seats all throughout the nation:

 Bonus: remember when Michelle Bachmann won the 2011 Iowa Straw Poll?

6. That poor, poor raccoon who lost his cotton candy in a puddle: 

7. When David Cameron tried to impress Angela Merkel by making a slideshow of them embracing:
"Wooing Merkel is a major pre-occupation... she is coming to a private dinner in Number 10 that evening. Cameron has an idea: 'Why don't we show her a PowerPoint and give some of it in German?' The team likes the idea: it is a way of engaging her and injecting humour and informality.
... Hurriedly a presentation is cobbled together, including pictures of Cameron and Merkel hugging."
8. The time that Tony the Tiger went on a spree blocking innocent furries:

9. Those weird, somewhat disturbing tweets from Scott Walker:

10. And, finally, that tweet from Bill Kristol:

I hope you enjoy reminiscing as much as I do.
