Doug Jones Beat Roy Moore In The Alabama Senate Election And Twitter Can't Believe It

After a campaign in which Republican candidate Roy Moore was accused of pursuing relationships with teenage girls during his 80s, Democrat Doug Jones has won the Alabama Senate Election with a narrow margin. Jones will be the first Democratic senator from Alabama in more than two decades. 

Roy Moore was expected to win the election, which was called when Jeff Sessions gave up his seat to be President Donald Trump’s Attorney General. 

President Donald Trump had endorsed Moore in a series of tweets, while the accusations led many Republican senators to disown their candidate. The Republican majority in the Senate is now down to just two votes.

In an election that was decided by a few thousand votes, and an incredibly high turnout for groups such as African Americans, you can probably guess how social media reacted. 

Jeff Flake took to Twitter to slam Moore. 

As did Hillary Clinton. 

And here’s how the rest of social media reacted…

Woman Tweets 2008 Trivial Pursuit Question That Did Not Age Well–And People Can't Even

Writer S.E. Sinkhorn posted a pic to Twitter of an old Trivial Pursuit card from 2008. Less than ten years ago in time, perhaps a million years in feelings. There’s so much we know now that we didn’t know then, and most of it is bad.

It’s perhaps understandable then, why Sinkhorn took the question, “Who has never been Batman?” pretty personally.

In 2008, the makers of Trivial Pursuit thought we’d live in a world where Ben Affleck would never be Batman. Little did they know.

Everyone in the replies was upset that the game gave movie execs ideas, but they still had a few knocks to get out against other offending Batmans:

Also, someone pointed out this was a similar question in an edition of Cranium, though they don’t specify the year this edition was printed. But if it preceded Affleck’s casting as the dark knight, that’s scary:

Former 'Buffy' Star Perfectly Recreates Iconic Celeb Looks And Instagram Can't Get Enough

Tom Lenk is likely a familiar face to any fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. He played nerd boy Andrew on the series, a creative individual with a habit of making up stories at every opportunity. An actor doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with their character’s direction, but Lenk is clearly as dramatic in real life as he was on TV. 

His Instagram account is a deluge of creativity in the form of mocking other celebrities:

It’s doubtful that Lenk considers it mocking, actually; each photo really looks like an homage to favorite looks sported by (mostly) female stars. The handmade creations assembled from what appears to be largely household goods are inspiring, hilarious and fierce as hell:

Khal Drogo And Tormund Met In Real Life And Fans Can't Get Enough

Jason Momoa was in London over the weekend, according toBuzzFeed, promoting his new film. But just because you have to work, doesn’t mean there isn’t time for play. You know who else was in the area? Most of the cast of Game of Thrones, and when Khal Drogo is in town, the group gets together.

Momoa posted a delightful recap of his time visiting old friends that gets hilariously darker and blurrier as the party seems to go on. He’s also wearing a crazy hat for some reason:

But here’s the big news: we finally get to see Khal Drogo and Tormund together, at long last! And Jon Snow snuck in there. This is like a reunion that is entirely based on fan fiction, and it’s perfect.

Momoa also reunited with his Khaleesi, Emilia Clarke, and introduced her to another superhero, Gal Gadot. What if Wonder Woman just showed up in Westeros? That would be a rad crossover.

But this is adorable enough on its own:

It’s wonderful when fans get to see TV and movie stars they love looking like they love each other. Now, if only we could figure out what pub they’re at tonight…

People Are Already Dropping Their iPhone X's And We Can't Look Away

We’ve all heard horror stories about the iPhone breaking. Whether it’s because it’s so bendy…

…or scarily easy to shatter…

Surely, the new $ 1,000+ iPhone X would be a more stalwart handset that won’t shatter after slipping from your fingertips?

Well, actually, that’s not the case. There are some unfortunate souls who’ve purchased the phone, on launch day, and have been simultaneously let down by its break-tastic design and their own clumsiness.

And if you thought that fixing an iPhone’s screen was expensive before, just wait till you hear how much it costs to replace the X’s, Essential Phones-esque screen

$ 275, (or $ 25 less than price of a brand-new Moto G5 Plus) is what it costs to replace your iPhone X’s screen. Which makes watching these videos of people dropping them all the more painful to watch.

This guy drops the iPhone on purpose, but it doesn’t make it any easier to see.

Regardless of the phones’ well-documented fragility, people are still flocking to buy them. Will you save up to purchase an iPhone X? Or are you happy enough with your current phone?

This Rescue Dog And Baby Are Best Friends And We Can't Get Over It

Do you like friendships between babies and animals? Of course you do! You are a person with a heart. 

Well, here’s a good one for you. Nora is an English Pointer who was rescued seven years ago from an abusive situation by a woman named Elizabeth. Nora is still a little skittish but there is one thing she truly loves, Elizabeth’s youngest son Archie. 

The two of them are pretty much inseparable. When speaking with Bored Panda she said, “If Archie is having a bath, Nora is lying on the bath mat waiting for him to get out. If Iā€™m nursing him she wants up on my lap, too.”

Cat Upstages Reporter On Live TV, And Twitter Can't Breathe

First of all, this article will be tough to write because the photo I found for the banner is the second most captivating picture of a kittycat I’ve ever seen.

Child actors can really blow us away sometimes, and this kitty is going for “young Simba sees the wildebeest stampede” like a champion.

Anyway, Tenderpuss up there is a wildcat, which can be dangerous for children and pets. Sightings of wildcats in suburban areas are rather newsworthy, though “sightings” implies only a temporary appearance. Reporter Scott Madaus went out with a camera crew to talk to Hernando, Mississippi, residents about a local wildcat.

Without the clear and present danger of an actual wildcat, Madaus was forced to make do:

Just a Felis Domesticus, not a threat to our valiant reporter but certainly observing him and standing in silent judgment of his moral failings.

David Mack brought us the kitty vs. reporter standoff, and Twitter loved it:

Mostly, people loved the kitty’s ā€” and the reporter’s ā€” unexpected moment of fame:

It’s quick thinking that makes a professional, people.

Rand Paul Caught Making Faces When Trump Entered Room–And We Can't Even

Though they share the same political party, it’s no secret that Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and President Donald Trump have a bit of a complicated history, and an at times contentious relationship.

So when President Trump walked into a press conference on Thursday and greeted seemingly everyone around Senator Paul but ignored him, the awkward close-up of Paul’s reaction was priceless. 

Watch for yourself:

Well that’s uncomfortable.

While the cameras were rolling to capture the press conference, Senator Paul inadvertently stole the spotlight and Twitter was LIVING for it!

There were gifs…

It’s kind of like…

Take deep breaths Rand, and call Oprah. She can soothe the soul.

Girl Gets Added To Soccer Mom Group Chat And Can't Stop Trolling Them

Sometimes the best things in life happen when you just ride the wave. Obviously this doesn’t apply to every situation. Like when a ship’s sinking and you need to get off and find a lifeboat, maybe it’s best if you stop engorging yourself at the seafood buffet and focus on saving your life.

But other times in life, there’s tons of fun to be had by just saying yes to a situation. Would you like fries with that? Yes. Would you like to come out tonight instead of staying in and browsing memes all night? Also yes.

Would you like to pretend like you’re one of the soccer moms on this group chat, despite being added to it accidentally? Well Facebook user Christi Rantis Lally user said yes to this situation and it provided some hilarious results.

Watch all the drama unfold below.

Why aren’t pudding cups acceptable snacks? Is it because you need to eat them with a spoon? Or the sugar content??
