Millennials Apparently Have *No Clue* What A Butter Knife Is, According To This Survey

Oh look, Millennials are back at it ruining everything! A new survey conducted by Porch and tweeted out by Now This News claims that Millennials might be the worst generation at cooking ever, and that nearly 40% don't even know what a butter knife is. Additionally, only about 40% know how to carve a turkey. The horror.

Porch surveyed 750 people of all ages, asking them if they considered themselves to be "good cooks" - just over 60% of Millennials answered yes, while well over 70% of Baby Boomers said the same.   

Many on Twitter have pointed out that the reasoning and methods used by the surveyors is heavily flawed - it's almost like hating on Millennials is all just a big marketing ploy to distract us from real problems! Lol nah, that can't be it...

Butthurt Comedian Gets What He Deserves After Verbally Abusing Date

Comedian Shane Hoban has had better days. So was a former date who got a lot more than she bargained for after telling the Boston resident that she didn't wish to pursue a relationship with him. Her respectful text is honest and even generously nice. She even wishes him luck at his upcoming show. That kindness is met with alarming aggression, abusive language, and disturbing threats. Fortunately the internet has helped make sure Hoban gets what is coming to him.

Pompous News Anchor Gets Roasted For Claiming That Millennials Can't Do Anything For Themselves

British Sky News anchor Jayne Secker has come under fire for her patronizing comments yesterday in an interview with Kirsty Archer, a young politician who stated that the cost of living in London is far too high for many people, and that getting evicted from a rental home could cost a tenant £2,000.

Secker, who is a landlord herself, countered Archer's comments by claiming that it's the young renters who are at fault here because they do not have the "basic skills" (including changing a light bulb and knowing how to turn on their heaters) to rent homes.

Secker later issued an "apology" tweet for her comments, which some are calling out for being a non-apology. You can watch the Sky News video and read some of Twitter's reactions to it below!

Fox News Is Getting Twitter-Roasted For Their Monumental Geography Mishap

It's no secret that Fox News often gets roasted on the internet - this time they've come under fire for publishing a news headline that reads, "Trump cuts U.S. aid to 3 Mexican countries," which of course signifies a pretty substantial geographical flaw.

They've since apologized for the mistake, but that certainly hasn't stopped the internet from roasting them!

Sh*t starts getting a little surreal when a single giant corporation owns tons of local news stations. In this particular instance, it's Sinclair Broadcast Group, which clearly has their stations set to the same script. 

This Big-Brothery video might just give you the chills.

Aunt Becky Is Getting Meme'd And Roasted For Bribing Her Spoiled Daughter's Way Into College

Are y'all ready for a mess of a news story? Lori Loughlin, AKA Aunt Becky from Full House, was taken into custody this morning for participating in a huge college admissions sting to get her completely unqualified daughter admitted into the University of Southern California. Several other wealthy celebrities were involved, including Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman and her husband William H. Macy.

Charges so far include $25 million in bribes to university authorities and fabrication of credentials to be admitted into some of the top universities in the nation.

Some have pointed out that Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, would never have been admitted to USC on her own academic merit. Giannulli, a prominent beauty YouTuber, even admitted in a video back in August that she plans to focus more on college parties than her classes.

Under the monikers #FreeAuntBecky and #CollegeAdmissionScandal, many memers and Twitter users have expressed their frustration at the situation, pointing out that regular people have to get admitted to universities on actual academic merit and not absurdly rich parents.
