The 'Depressing Fridge Poems' Instagram Is A Cynic's Dream

As we brace ourselves for the barrage of "Roses Are Red" poems and candy hearts for Valentine's Day this Friday, we find ourselves craving something that feels a little more real. Enter 'Depressing Fridge Poems.' The page, which is the brainchild of Rusty Epstein, has been serving up dark and nihilistic looks at life since 2014. Anyone expecting a dark motif will be sorely mistaken. The filtered fridge photos don't reflect the content - the gloomy poems are shared in bright, candy-colored filters. It's a move that catches the eye and makes the less than rose-colored messages all the more delightfully jarring. We've put together some of Rusty's latest and greatest right here, but if you want more check out his page and store. Anyone willing to tell it like it is deserves our support.

'What, You Egg?' Memes Roast High School English Teachers

Ah, high school. Back when we'd sit in AP English class and listen to the teacher go on about the supposed symbolism in classic works of literature for what felt like hours. Lo and behold, it's entirely possible that some writers just want to write a damn sentence that doesn't contain some sort of brilliant imagery.

All the way back in 2013, a Tumblr user pointed out the line "What, you egg?" in Shakespeare's MacBeth. Was Shakespeare trying to convey some sort of secret meaning here? It's possible, but it's more likely he just wanted to throw in a silly insult.

Funny dank memes entitled, "What, you egg?" | bit from a shakespeare play where someone gets stabbed after calling somebody else an egg, followed by english teachers reaction depicted by kermit looking forlornly out of a window. another meme is a waffle labeled with the line from the play, with a content looking cat sitting next to it labeled as english teachers

William Carlos Williams' Plums Poem Is Our New Favorite Twitter Meme

Twitter users have been having a lot of fun this week riffing on William Carlos Williams' classic poem, "This is Just To Say." The plum-loving poem's fame, length, and rhythm have made it the target of many parodies. This latest treatment blends the three-verse poem with popular song lyrics - ranging from Linkin Park to Leonard Cohen. The results are an unexpected delight for poetry and music lovers alike.

the plums
that were in
the icebox

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold"
