People Are Roasting The 23andMe DNA Test With These Hilarious Memes

I can get why people are obsessed with the origins of their ancestry.

One: because it’s cool to know where you came from and chart all of the different ethnicities and parts of the world that had to be involved to culminate in the creation of you.

There could be any number of reasons a person would want to know the origins of their genetic makeup and there’s no shortage of services that’ll do that for you.

Like the popular service, 23andMe. It’s gotten so popular, in fact, that people have used its test results template to create some hilarious memes.

It’s the perfect vehicle for making references to popular song lyrics.

People have also been using the memes to make fun of themselves.

They’re just so, so, so good.

This person was shocked to discover that a significant portion of their genetic makeup is Irish soda bread.

While others use the meme as an opportunity to catch RDJ’s attention.

This person was shocked to discover they were made out of clothing.

The finds were just super fascinating.

This Twitter user found a review that I hope is some kind of twisted joke while signing up for 23andme’s service.

In recent news, there’s been some trepidation about ancestry sites, as many are afraid the DNA testing facilities are just fronts to collect user data and then dole out that data to whoever they see fit.

The concerns were originally raised when it was revealed that the Golden State Killer was helped identified by an ancestry service similar to 23andme.

So even if your personal data’s being given out, at least you can console yourself with the fact that a killer was caught because you maybe gave away some of your privacy, yeah?

This Guy's Pre-Workout Amazon Review Lists All The Hilarious Side Effects He Felt

This Guy’s Pre-Workout Amazon Review Lists All The Hilarious Side Effects He Felt

One of the best (and worst) parts about the internet is that so much stuff is just plain made up.

Now you might be asking yourself, “How can that ever be considered positive?” And it’s true, there is a ton of fake news out there causing all sorts of havoc, so much in fact, that some people feel it helped get a former reality TV star elected President.

But, I would counter your fake news woes with the wonderful world of exaggerated Amazon product reviews that are almost always hilarious. I mean, just look at these amazing words of praise for the iconic three-wolf moon shirt.

That’s right, he called it “career development fertilizer.”

You can buy pretty much anything on Amazon and find out whether it’s good or not thanks to the retailer’s handy-dandy comments section. Coincidentally, people who actually take the time to read product reviews are prime targets for some lighthearted trolling/gifts of hilarity. Like the reviews that have been pouring in for this pre-workout powder.

Now if you’re unfamiliar with the world of fitness supplements, there’s one thing you need to know: it’s a lawless wasteland.

Because of that, it’s home to some of the craziest, “bro-science” claims you’ll ever hear. As a result, there are some MOs that lots of these supplements follow. And if you used to read Muscular Development and all the crazy bodybuilding magazines back in the day, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

The LIT pre-workout powder’s product description falls in line with the supplement lingo.

  • Clinically Dosed Pre-Workout
  • Built By Science. Driven By Obsession. Elevated Through Innovation.
  • If It’s On Our Labels, Then It’s In Our Bottles. Get Lit And Train With Focus, Power And Pumps.
  • Proven Ingredients. Proven Doses. Clinical Quality. Real Science. Real Results.
  • Summary:

Which may or may not have inspired people to write such hilarious testaments to the efficacy for this “pump” powder. Like Amazon user Dino2925’s review of the stuff.

Here it is, in full:

Walked into the break room at work for a glass of ice water. Noticed a container of this sitting on the shelf. Thought it might flavor my plain water reasonably well so I mixed some up. Blue Raspberry. I read the label as I stirred. “May cause flushing and tingling”. I smirked, thinking that wouldn’t be an issue. Background: 5’11”, 270 lbs. A walking wall that spends an inordinate amount of time lifting large weights. I don’t use supplements but am peripherally aware of their function. This is labeled as a pre-workout supplement. I figured that since I was going to the gym later, it couldn’t hurt.

The taste was delicious. Sour and refreshing. Within a couple minutes, my face went numb. I laughed, thinking maybe there was something to that warning label. Soon, the tingling spread to my arms, legs and chest. Then the itching started. The whole body itching that someone might experience after swimming in a lake of toxic waste. The label didn’t mention the itching. Then the caffeine kicked in. I think that the manufacturer forgot to mention that one of the secret ingredients was methamphetamine. Proprietary blend, with a sprinkle of cocaine. I literally couldn’t blink. Had I been surrounded by a group of angry police officers, I suspect the ensuing viral video would have been epic. One review mentioned that this product is ‘Fire’. That phrase went though my mind prior to reading it.

It took about two hours for the product to wear off. The itching was unnerving. Ten hours later and my tongue still hurts. I never did get to the gym. This product would likely be awesome during the first hour of a Zombie Apocalypse, as your situational awareness will be off the charts. You’ll feel as strong as a gorilla and the itching will keep you moving. I don’t know if sweating would help mitigate the itching but I suspect not.

When I get back into work on Monday, that container will still be sitting there. Calling me. Tempting me. Part of my brain will shout “Remember the itching!”. Another part will whisper “Remember the rush….” I’ll probably opt for a glass of water and think about zombies.  

The invigorating, itchy affair didn’t seem solely reserved for Dino, either. Other people testified to the fortifying effects of the powder.

Others think the pre-workout is so good that Jesus himself would use it.

Lots of the reviews comment on the fact that the product leaves you feeling “tingly,” but everyone pretty much unanimously agrees that it works.

Not sure I want to be itching/tingling all day just to have a slightly better workout, but I have to be honest, I do kind of want to try it now. Sorry Dino, your trauma has done little to dissuade me from wanting this product.

Dad Shares Conversations With His 4 Daughters And They Are Hilarious

Kids are known for being unintentionally hilarious at times. Whether it’s because they don’t have a complete grasp on language yet, or just because they don’t fully understand the world.

Guy Texts His Girlfriend Some Hilarious Ground Rules Before They Watch 'Infinity War' Together

Guy Texts His Girlfriend Some Hilarious Ground Rules Before They Watch ‘Infinity War’ Together

We all have that one movie we really, really want to see. The one we’ve obsessed over for months or sometimes years. We’ve watched the trailers, read all the fan theories, and monitored director changes. Of course we bought pre-sale tickets before post production even began.

Now there’s nothing wrong with going to see that movie alone, but there is usually a special someone you want to tag along that makes the movie watching experience that much more enjoyable.

Just as long as they follow some basic guidelines and protocols, of course.

Usually, those guidelines are unspoken rules and if you have to really spell them out for the friend you’re bringing along to see the movie you-just-can’t-wait-to-see, then chances are they weren’t your first choice to bring with you to watch the film anyway.

However, some people want to be extra, super, specific, clear, and open about what they expect from their movie-watching experience. Like this guy who is very, very, very much looking forward to Marvel’s Infinity War. So much so that he texted his girlfriend an extensive list of ground rules she is expected to adhere to while they watch the movie.

And while they seem excessive, it’s kind of easy to understand why he’d do it. Pretty much all of the Marvel movies that were released since the Edward Norton Hulk film have been leading up to this.

He goes all-in from the first couple of rules. He made it very clear that he doesn’t want the experience tainted by questions or any kind of lovey-dovey business.

twitter

Now those might seem a bit extreme, but they’re easy enough to understand, I hate it when people ask me questions, especially during a movie I’m watching for the first time myself.

But rules 4,5,6 are when the requests get a little over the top. Just a little.

twitter

I mean I get where the guy is coming from, don’t you hate it when you’re excited about something and the person you’re with doesn’t care as much as you do? Here’s hoping his SO is good at faking tears, and having a lawyer handy.

He shows just how serious he is about watching this film with rule #6 though. Mass shootings be damned, he will make it to the end of Infinity War.

But, if she abides, she gets to have her favorite ice cream afterwards. I guess that’s reward enough for subduing a deranged psychopath with a gun, right?

twitter

Some people honestly saw where the guy was coming from.

Other guys were just nodding their heads saying, “yup”.

Joke or not, there were some Twitter users who weren’t tickled pink by the boyfriend’s texts to his boo.

And some had problems with just some of the rules and restrictions.

Still, it seemed like there were more people who thought the man’s demands weren’t all that crazy.

How would you feel if someone invited you for a movie and (half-jokingly) sent over those demands? What would you say?

Bath Bomb Turns Woman Into A 'Smurf' And The Photos Are Hilarious

Every holiday and birthday, you’re guaranteed to get at least one bath bomb from a relative who had no idea what to get you. Bath bombs are up there with socks in the generic gift category. Apart from turning the bathtub into a slip and slide for the next person who has to use it, they’re a pretty safe gift. 

At least that’s what Twitter user Rebekah Butler probably thought. She recently picked up a galaxy bath bomb from Kroger that she claims had some unintended effects.

Yes, she’s a smurf now. 

In a caption alongside the tweet, Butler claimed that the bath bomb “dyed” her skin. “I was in the bath for a solid 5 minutes and now I am a freaking SMURF,” she added. “So to everyone I snapchat, enjoy looking at my forehead till I am no longer a smurf.”

Butler wrote in a reply that she was shocked at first, but that she quickly got over it. 

And it does seem to be coming off pretty quickly. 

Butler says she’s going to contact Kroger about the bath bomb, and hopefully she’ll keep us all updated. 

People found the incident hilarious, of course. 

As it turns out, there’s a lot of GIFs that are perfect for this situation.

Woman Makes Museum Exhibits Out Of Roommate's Stuff In Hilarious Prank

Roommates can either be the best or the worst, there’s just no in between. But we’re guessing that Ellen Huet, a writer for Bloomberg, is in the former category.  While two of her roommates were away on a trip, she decided to play a pretty amazing prank on them. 

Huet and the rest of the house grouped together to turn their room into a museum, so that future generations might have some insight on San Francisco life. 

I’m sure this won’t confuse people in the future…

This one could actually pass for the truth. 

Unsurprisingly, people found the photos hilarious. 

Who doesn’t have fun with lamination? 

History nerds were excited. 

Others wanted to pull the prank off themselves.

The Reviews For This 12-Foot Beach Ball Are As Hilarious As You Expect

There’s some pretty interesting stuff you can buy on Amazon. And along with them come hilarious reviews from people who have purchased them. The latest review to take the Internet by storm comes from this 12-foot inflatable beach ball, which seems like a pretty solid purchasing decision. 

“Measuring a ridiculous 12 feet from pole to pole, the Beach Behemoth is the largest beach ball you might ever behold,” a description of the ball reads. 

Reid Hamlin was one person who decided to give the ball a go, and after spending an hour inflating it, they seem to be regretting their decision. Their review reads: 

Other people also seemed to run into issues with the ball.

One user decided to take the ball to their son’s graduation party. It did not go well…

Well, that sounds terrifying. It didn’t seem to stop Reddit users from wanting one, though. 

Some want it for a prank. 

Others claim to have spotted the ball. 

Many commenters weren’t put off by the destruction, though.

This Woman Is Regretting Buying Something Hilarious At A College Party

We’ve all done something that we’ve regretted in college. But that’s okay, because college is probably the last chance at being young and free that you’re going to get. And over the weekend, Twitter user Annie Swartz of Texas Tech did something that probably seemed like a good idea at the time, and would probably be considered an equally great idea by many people, day or night. 

Swartz is well known for finding all the animals at parties. Whether it be a chicken or a puppy. 

But over the weekend, Swartz went way too far when she found one animal. 

Yes, she purchased a goat. No, she doesn’t still want the goat now that the party is over.

Somehow, this is a relatable tweet for some people. 

Others were just wondering how someone can accidentally buy a goat. Or why this is a problem. 

People really like goats, apparently. 

A lot of people seem to think this will happen to them. 

Would you accidentally buy a goat?

Wife's Dying Wish To Husband Ends Up Being A Hilarious Practical Joke

When Phedre Nicol was battling cancer in 2013 at the age of 69, she gave her husband, Nigel, strict instructions should she pass away. Those instructions? Keep watering the plants in their South Africa home. 

And when Phedre lost her battle in the same year, Nigel, now 73, started keeping that promise. And he’s been watering the ferns in their bathroom for years. Though he probably did wonder why there were puddles of water on the floor every time he watered them. 

Fast forward to 2018, and Nigel is moving into a retirement home. The ferns were still in such good shape, that he decided to pack them along with his belongings. Only then did he realize that how wife has been playing a prank on him this entire time. 

Daughter Antonia, a firefighter from London, explained the prank on Twitter…

Yes, Phedre has had Nigel watering plastic for a few years. Antonia explained to The Mirror that no one else was in on the prank…

Antonia explains that her father was so “overcome with grief,” he religiously watered the plants. The couple had apparently always been pranksters…

She goes on to explain what the discovery meant for her father…

And the reaction it got from social media was even more heartwarming. 

Nigel even reenacted the watering of the ferns for his new fans…

To say this is peak relationship goals is an understatement…

These Women Played Hilarious Pranks On Men Who Creeped Them Online

It seems like there’s no way to stop men as a group from sending unsolicited pics or requesting nudes from women they barely know, but many ladies are taking them on one by one. Anyone faced with online or IRL harassment has strategies for avoiding difficult situations with creepers. Some are merely for safety, but some are also for kicks. If men won’t leave us alone, we should at least get to have some fun. 

Here are some of the creative ways women have figured out how to deal with the weirdoes who won’t take no for an answer—or who don’t even bother asking first.

Or try my favorite move of all: say no, and then block. Extremely satisfying.
