The airline, EasyJet, was quick to reply on Twitter, asking Harris to take down the photo so that they could "best assist" his complaints. People on Twitter, however, weren't falling for the budget British airline's BS, and began creating parodies of the tweet.
Fortunately (or perhaps unfortunately, depending on your own personal opinion), it's been reported that these backless seats were actually inoperable on the flight and passengers were not permitted to use them.
However, we've gotta wonder why EasyJet was so quick to get defensive in the Twitter thread. Very suspicious indeed...
Alright, well this might be the most bizarre meme trend of the year so far, we think. It all started when Redditor Zeus1027 posted a photo of a political poster put up by the Conservative Party in the UK. The poster, which appears to be located on some sort of public transit, reads, "We plan to cut all homeless people in half by 2025."
Of course, the /r/DankMemes community immediately jumped on the opportunity to mock the poster in typical memer fashion.
While we're pretty sure you can assume what the Tories meant to say with this message, this move still comes across as a pretty severe blunder on their part! We think they should probably invest in someone to edit their posters a little more carefully...
If you didn't pay much attention during history or hate reading dumb books, these memes might help you seem smarter. They won't help you write an award-winning essay, but they might help you in random conversation or when you're trying to impress someone who is only moderately intelligent. So who said memes have no educational value?
Welcome to the world, little dude! The royal family announced the birth of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son, whom they gave quite an unusual name: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, to be precise. Quite a mouthful, eh?
While the name itself was already a prime target of jokes, Twitter went off after Daily Express tweeted that the couple had chosen "UNUSUAL name for baby that UNIFIES the US and UK." Bizarre choice of headline, as you'll be able to see down below!
The internet really seems to love roasting wanted criminals for their physical attributes (remember Neck Guy?) and this kid is of no exception. The 18-year-old cross-eyed burglar got roasted pretty hard when the Northamptonshire Police department in the UK posted his wanted notice on Facebook.
We almost feel kind of bad for this poor kid, as he can't exactly help that he's cross-eyed, but at the same time, these puns are just too much. They'll definitely make you say, "iris I thought of that one."
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!
When you've lived in one place your whole life, you get used to the various customs and behaviors that are standard in your country. So much so that traveling abroad can be a huge culture shock for a lot of people. These American Redditors are sharing the things they realized are completely unique to American culture.
On January 4th, The Museum of English Rural Life tweeted at The British Museum to send over their "best duck," which ignited a whole bunch of smack talk between different British museums, and soon branched out to museums across the pond (heh) as well.
As you're about to see, museums are straight ruthless.
The r/me_irl subreddit is probably the sh*tposting mecca of Reddit, and things have gotten a little weirder since Christmas. On Boxing day, user beefy_cabbage shared an iCarly meme that seemed to predict the death of Queen Elizabeth. The post went viral, spawning more jokes about the unsubstantiated prediction. Most of them are fairly stupid, but we have to admit that we're very interested in what will happen on me_irl on January 6th. Stay tuned, folks.
