  2. Penis-Shaped Play-Doh Toy Ruins Christmas for Uptight People Everywhere

    Since when is penis-making not Play-Doh 101?

  3. Facebook Is Sorry That “Year in Review” Reminded You How Crappy 2014 Was

    Unless it was great, in which case they're not sorry at all.

    Let's all just be honest: 2014 was a crappy year. I mean, for me personally, it was actually great, but it was pretty terrible in general.

  7. The Facebook “Gamer” Report Button Is Real, But It’s Not What You Think

    Unless you think it's about fake Farmville accounts. Then you nailed it.

    Well, technically it's real, but it's not some kind of dystopian crackdown on people who play video games participating in society. Images floating around of an option to report accounts for being "gamers" haven't been doctored, but don't take them out of context.
