Bride Sends Wedding Guests 30-Day Diet Plans, Outrage Ensues

Weddings have an uncanny knack for bringing out the worst in people. Maybe it's because weddings are these momentous events that bring with them an insane amount of build up, nervous anticipation, and the reunion of various family members that should basically be kept as far apart from one another as possible. With that being said some folks just become possessed by this toxic sense of perfectionism where they're so committed to making sure that nothing goes wrong, that they end up creating a complete chaotic mess of stress in the process. In this case, we're dealing with a bride who has the unreal audacity to send all of her guests 30-day diet plans. That seems like a great strategy if you want to rest assured that you're going to have a ton of people not want to attend your wedding. People are already going out of their way to set up their own busy life schedules so that they can make an appearance for your special day, and then you hit 'em with an aggressive, totally unrealistic diet plan amidst that? So. Much. Yikes. This guy's reaction seems completely warranted when considering the circumstances. There are certain lines you just don't cross. While weddings seem like they can blur some of those lines, because people will put up with a certain amount of nonsense for the ones they love, this particular move by the bride is downright inexcusable. If anything, it sounds like she could massively benefit from being given a little reality check.

We're no strangers to seeing people being served up reality checks in other parts of life at this point. It could be a rude choosing beggar with a gnarly case of entitlement, who insists on wasting the time of an artist who is hard at work and just trying to survive off the funds they can make while practicing their craft. But alas, it seems that this world will never be in short supply of folks that fell through the cracks when it comes to practicing common social decency. They're blinded by a cloud of ignorance so thick that sometimes it's as if the reality checks themselves are pointless. You've got to wonder on some level whether or not this bride would even benefit from a reality check herself. It seems like she's opted for the defensive road based off the argument she already had with her brother. On top of that, the poor guy has to deal with what sounds like an enabling family and indifferent groom that aren't interested in helping him resolve the matter at all. Still have no idea what she was thinking when she sent one of those diet plans to her mother who is diabetic as well. Like, how is that even real life?

All in all, it's quick little tales like the one we're provided in this AITA post that can remind us that there are always going to be folks out there that are stooping to new lows for when it comes to being a morally righteous individual. We really do hope that they were able to figure out some kind of peaceful resolution.

Worst Valentine's Day Gifts People Received

Valentine's Day rolls around once a year to either throw the world's hopeful romantics into a lustful frenzy full of promise and loving gifts and positive energy, or it can push other folks into a misery-drenched state of loneliness unlike anything they normally experience on a daily basis. It's a highly commercialized "holiday." Many people end up digging deep into their bank accounts, and dishing out the big bucks on fancy meals that would otherwise never be considered. Obviously, this year's a bit of a curveball for everyone. Like, can you even get into a restaurant in the first place? And if you decide to go that route for the Valentine's Day date, is it really something that you're comfortable with considering the circumstances of this tumultuous time? Outside of that though, the process that can go into trying to get your special someone a meaningful gift can be a nerve-wracking one, riddled by self doubt. All this pressure can build up over whether or not you're actually getting something that they'll appreciate, or if you're just unknowingly digging yourself a deep hole because you failed to get them something that reflects how well you know them, and how much they mean to you.

Maybe, there's all this momentum around Valentine's Day because of the sea of sappy Rom Coms we have available at our disposal. Romantic movies can end up contributing toward this overriding narrative that you need someone to be happy, and if you end up with that special someone, you're obligated to provide them gifts on Valentine's Day. Who knows? To each their own. Everyone will naturally do it a little different.

With respect to this AskReddit thread though, we have people sharing the very worst of the Valentine's Day gifts that they've ever received. Can you imagine just being in the same room as someone who was receiving one of these gifts? The amount of awkward silence that must've ensued after some of these gift exchanges, must've been palpable. I mean, hey, you live and you learn. Sometimes you end up fully committing to a gift for your partner that you've deluded yourself into thinking they'll like, and not completely loathe. 

We can all fall prey to bouts of well intentioned confusion. If you're lucky you'll be able to get away with a wipeout on a Valentine's Day gift by riding the "it's the thought that counts" wave. Because at the end of the day, it really is. If you have an agreement with your partner where you guys are game with giving each other Valentine's Day gifts, then it's really up to the both of you to not be too critical of one another when the gift exchange part of the process rolls around. Or, maybe the silly banter and roasting of each other is one of the funnest parts of the whole situation. All in all, we hope that these Valentine's Day gift fails make you feel a little bit better about any unfortunate moments you've experienced on Valentine's Day.

Twitter Thread: Big Bird Introduces World To His Cousins

For whatever reason Big Bird decided to enlighten the world on his cousins from around the world. Little Bird is just straight up adorable. Then there's a very unsettling air about Garibaldo. No idea what kind of madness Garibaldo's up to. This is one of those threads that the world didn't know it needed, but definitely does. While we're on the topic of Big Bird though, we figured we might as well dive down a rabbit hole on the story of Sesame Street's infamous Big Bird. Where to begin? 

Well, for starters Big Bird stands at a daunting 8'2. Just imagine seeing that guy out walking around the block. Doorways must be some kind of terrible hassle for the poor fellow. Big Bird seems to be quite the multitalented individual. He can roller skate, ice skate, dance, sing, write poetry, draw, and even rock out on a unicycle. Who wouldn't love to see that in action? Big Bird resides in a nest behind 123 Sesame Street, and has a teddy bear named Radar. 

Moving on with our rundown of the illustrious history behind the infamous Big Bird, Big Bird also has an established reputation for making friends easily. Throughout the show he was always that one character who would welcome the new characters to the block. At one point in time Big Bird commented on his charisma during a TIME interview, saying that people might see the 8-foot Big Bird and feel more comfortable. Personally, I don't know if I'd want to give the homie a hug, or sprint away like my life depend on it. And on top of that it could just be helped out by the fact that he's a friendly bird. Like, imagine if he wasn't friendly for a second. Imagine if he'd been rocking a getup like that of his cousin Garibaldo, and played the part of the schoolyard bully instead? Thank goodness that's not the direction that the show's writers took his character arc. 

Perhaps one of the biggest mysteries behind Big Bird is how old is the dude? Is he just a clueless, wide eyed adult or maybe a kid still figuring out how the world works? As it turns out, Big Bird's apparently permanently 6 1/2 years old. I guess by freezing his age at this point, the writers are able to paint Big Bird in a light where he's seen as nothing but a curious, adventurous kid who is actively figuring out the ways of the crazy world. 

Let's take a quick look at some other fun facts about Big Bird. Big Bird almost went into space. Yes, literally at one point the team behind Sesame Street was looking into the logistics that'd be involved with sending the man behind the character (Caroll Spinney) into outer space on the disastrous Challenger space shuttle in 1986. They ultimately passed on sending Spinney into outer space because they couldn't quite crack the problem of getting an 8'2 bird suit up there. Geez. Another quick fun fact about Big Bird is that Carroll Spinney also was responsible for voicing Oscar the Grouch. How about that? Pretty neat. Overall, what a wonderful, legendary career Carroll Spinney had while playing the part of the world's most loved Big Bird. May you rest in peace, Carroll Spinney. As for the whole bit about Big Bird's cousins...we'd love to learn more about this wild Garibaldo character.
