  2. Hillary Clinton Is Already Winning… for Best 404 Error Page

    Did Bill do this? It is the daddest of jokes.

    Hillary Clinton announced that she's running for president again, and the Internet's reaction was swift, but her campaign site has outdone everyone with what is simultaneously the best and worst joke so far: a 404 error page featuring an old family vacation photo and dorky pun.

While this problem didn't just suddenly appear, Netflix and Marvel's new show starring a blind superhero made it too uncomfortably ironic to continue.

  13. 12-Year-Old Girl Takes the Gaming Industry to Task Over Paying for Female Characters

    "Why?" -Argument won.
