But the good news about bad news is that it leads to amazing reactions on social media. That way, when you’re freaking out wondering if the media has gone to the dogs, you can find solace in the fact that the rest of the world also sees the ridiculousness.

We’ve all been there: you’re hanging out with your friends in the kitchen, listening to Spotify on a bluetooth speaker, and suddenly a lyric dispute comes up.
