It’s true. Between threats of nuclear war, famine, the new Taylor Swift single, and the fact that we have to wait a stupid long time for the next Wonder Woman movie, it’s hard to argue that the world isn’t going to hell in a handbasket.

But, like Nero before us, we must realize that there is only one good way to view the world as it burns – having a bit of a laugh, even if people think we’re crazy (and terrible at the violin).

Now you’re probably thinking that this post started so far off the rails that we’ll never be able to find our way back to the list, but you would be wrong, my friends.

You would be very wrong.
