Ryan Reynolds Just Tweeted A Brutal Birthday Message To His Brother–And We Can Relate

It turns out actor Ryan Reynolds doesn’t save birthday snark for just his wife and kids. Reynolds just sent a little birthday love to his big brother Jeff, and we’re loving the sweet and salty trolling.

The Deadpool star took to Twitter to wax sentimental on his brother’s special day:

No news yet on brother Jeff’s reaction, but Twitter couldn’t get enough.

Anyone can tweet out a generic “Happy Birthday!” But Reynolds has skills.

 Reynolds should be in charge of Twitter birthdays for everyone.

Apparently Reynolds ribbing his brother is becoming something of a family tradition. 

Last year he took a birthday swipe at his big bro that was adorable and similarly snarky.

Who’s counting the minutes to Jeff’s 2018 birthday?!

This Woman Just Blasted H&M For Their Absurd Clothing Sizes, And Others Can Relate

Lowri Byrne of the United Kingdom went in to an H&M to buy clothing in May. What she came out with was viral celebrity.

The problem that she had in the changing rooms is apparently one that is rather common, regardless of where you come from. The issue? H&M’s clothing sizes.

Your humble writer gave up on H&M many, many years ago because the sizes he actually fit in made him feel like an overweight monster. Lowri had a similar experience.

Lowri posted a photo of the outfit in question, and a scathing and sarcastic message alongside of it, directly to H&M’s Facebook page.

“Please sort your sizes out because this is absolutely ridiculous! I’m a size 12 and small busted and today in a H&M store I had to ask if this dress came in a size 18 (it didn’t…) 

The dress I have on in these photos is a size 16, and I could barely breathe. Not only was this annoying because I wanted to buy this dress, but so many women take what size dress they buy to heart. If I was one of these girls (thankfully I’m not) requesting a size 18 dress would seriously devastate me!

When I asked if this dress came in a 18 the store assistant said “ahh yeah you have to go up a couple of sizes with these”. A couple?!? going up 3-4 sizes surely should make you realise that you need to seriously sort out sizing!!!”

The post went promptly viral, gathering almost 4,000 reactions, 355 shares, and 586 comments. Mostly all of them were in favor, and in agreement.

H&M, to their credit, did issue the following official statement:

“H&M hugely values all customer feedback. It is only ever our intention to design and make clothes that make our customers feel good about themselves, any other outcome is neither intended nor desired. H&M’s sizes are global and the sizes offered in the U.K. are the same in all the 66 markets in which we operate in and online. 

As there is no global mandatory sizing standard, sizes will differ between brands and different markets. Our dedicated, in-house sizing department works according to an average of the sizes and measurements suggested by the markets we operate in. H&M sizes are continually reviewed by our in-house sizing department.”

Will H&M ever catch up with the rest of the world and provide sizing that doesn’t make people feel gross? We won’t hold our breath… unless we’re trying to fit into a pair of their jeans.

We Can All Relate To This Pizza Guy's Refreshingly Honest 'Sick Note'

If you’re a mere mortal, you’ve probably woken up one morning knowing that going to work simply isn’t an option. Perhaps you had an extra drink (or seven) the night before and the throbbing headache and severe dehydration aren’t going anywhere. The hangover is here to stay for the next five hours. 

So what do you do? Tough it out and somehow make it to work? Not ideal. Make up some pathetic excuse that your boss will see right through? Also not appealing. 

So… Why not settle for honesty? Who knows, maybe someone will sympathize.

Business owner Blake Pendlebury chose this noble route when he needed to call in sick to work. 

After an eventful afternoon at a horse race — with a successful bet, no less — Pendlebury consumed quite a few drinks, rendering him way too drunk to go to work. So he wrote a sick note… On Facebook. 

Sorry Queensland, but you’ll have to settle for some other variety of pizza for one night. 

Well, we appreciate the honesty…. And we empathize. 

The racing event responsible for all this fun (and alcohol consumption) even got involved and congratulated him on his win.

Maybe we’ll take this approach from now on… No way it could go wrong. (h/t mashable)
