New York Times' Oscars Style Captions Were A Delightful Comedy Surprise

This year's Oscars red carpet was pretty dismal. Many stars sported dresses that looked like they were from Forever 21 - others, like Charlize Theron, went with looks that were just uninspired. Fortunately for those of us following the sartorial desert via The New York Times, there was something else to look forward to. The photos, as usual, were stunning. But this year, the focus was on the captions. 

Thanks to Washington Post reporter Heather Kelly, we were alerted to the clever and shade-filled photo captions in the wee hours after the award ceremony. Better late than never. The rest of Twitter seems to have agreed - praise was unanimous for the "drunk intern's" breezy yet devastating commentary. Even the most obvious quip felt punchy: "Who's going to drive you home, Adam Driver?" There's also an ace joke about the big winner, Bong Joon Ho's Parasite.

Eventually, the attention made its way to the "intern" themselves. New York Times Styles editor Choire Sicha took the credit - with the disclaimer that he doesn't drink on the job. He's even changed his Twitter bio to reflect his viral work. Who knew that being a respected editor for over a decade would take a brief back seat to an assumed internship? Not us. But we can't wait for more of this gold after the next event Sicha covers.

Who's going drive home, Adam Driver? Favorito! At Governors Ball. Everyone's number one joke today is Oscar voters didn't know Parasite about them.

12 Twitter Haikus Roasting The 2020 Presidential Candidates

In case you missed the democratic presidential debate last night in Miami, we'll very briefly sum it up for you: none of the candidates had an answer regarding Mitch McConnell, Beto spoke Spanish very poorly, John Delaney yelled a lot, and really no one said anything of substance.

The New York Times Opinion asked Twitter users to come up with haikus roasting the 2020 presidential candidate under the moniker #DebateHaikus. Predictably, this task proved to be incredibly easy.

People Are Parodying New York Times Op-Eds And It's Amazing

It's pretty easy to make fun of The New York Times, but on August 30th, they made it even easier. On that date, the New York Times Opinion twitter account shared an op-ed written by Blackwater's Erik Prince. Prince, the founder of the controversial military contracting firm argued that contractors will save the war in Afghanistan. Seems a little self-serving, no? 

Twitter users immediately lambasted the piece, creating their own "op-eds" written by various bad guys, in support of their bad guy agendas. They're really, really good.

Jacques-André Istel needed something to do after fighting in the Korean War. So naturally, he founded his own incorporated town in the Californian desert, declared it the official Center of the World, and uses it as the site of a stone monument upon which he continually chronicles the history of the United States as it happens.

Gotta watch out for that liberal aversion. But I guess that comes with the territory of being a handsome young suction gold.
