Twitter Thread Explains The Weirdness Of Vintage Christmas Cards

We usually use Twitter to waste time on funny tweets, but every now and then it provides some serious knowledge to our weak brains. This particular thread explains the bizarre nature of old Christmas cards - and shares some seriously freaky examples. This is some serious pre-Hallmark shit. We just wish we could find these at our local stationery store.

The New York Times' Hot Take On Mona Lisa Inspires Debate & Sass

Another day, another hot take from The New York Times.Just a little over a week after their controversial review of beloved steakhouse Peter Luger, the newspaper is back with a spicy take on Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and her place at Paris' Louvre museum. Times art critic Jason Farago scathingly refers to the Mona Lisa as "the Kim Kardashian of 16th-century Italian portraiture." 

Behind the spicy title and harsh wording, Farago actually makes a very reasonable point. He's not suggesting ridding the museum of the Louvre, but posing suggestions for how to make the viewing experience less torturous. According to a poll of British tourists, visiting the painting was ranked as the world's most disappointing attraction. So it's safe to say a lot of people are with Farago. Folks on Twitter, for the most part, relished the controversial opinion piece, making jokes. Some seemed less giddy and, yet, repeated Farago's sentiment in their tweets. Whatever your opinion on the placement of the da Vinci masterpiece, hopefully we can agree that humanity would benefit from reading full articles before shouting their opinions into the internet's ether.

Adam Ellis' Comics Are Taking A Weird Turn And We Like It

Adam Ellis has been churning out cute and relatable comics for years, but it's only since he decided to leave his steady gig at Buzzfeed that his work has started to get...interesting. It would seem that Ellis has a much weirder - and much darker - sense of humor than we originally thought. We've put together some comics that reflect this new edge, and we can't wait for more.
