Grandma Who Accidentally Invited a Stranger to Thanksgiving Has Coronavirus
Wanda Dench, the kind-hearted grandmother who went viral for accidentally inviting a stranger to Thanksgiving back in 2016, has reportedly caught coronavirus. Keep scrolling to read the full story of Wanda and Jamal, and to read her most recent, yet slightly worrying, health update...
In 2016, a cell phone number mishap led to the most unlikely of friendships.
We all remember hearing the heartwarming story of Jamal Hinton and Wanda Dench, who came into contact as a total accident at Thanksgiving.
As we all know, Thanksgiving is one of the most heartwarming times of the year.
And is a time for good food, family, friends, and laughter.
And we all know that the feast is the highlight.
Roast turkey, stuffing, cornbread, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie… what’s not to love?
But, most importantly, it is the time to be thankful for the people you have in your life.
And, while most choose to celebrate with their closest friends and family members, others open their homes to strangers too.
Back in 2016, during the lead up to Thanksgiving, something pretty strange happened to Jamal Hinton.
You may remember that the then-teenage Jamal went viral for a cell phone number mishap that brought him and a complete stranger together for the holidays.
It all happened when Wanda Dench, now sixty-two, thought she was texting her grandson to invite him to Thanksgiving.
But, instead, she actually texted Jamal.
He was accidentally added to the Thanksgiving family group chat...
And, when Jamal replied asking who was texting him, Wanda innocently and hilariously replied, “Your grandma.”
Hinton then responded by asking for a photo to see if it was his own grandma behind the text.
But he was left shocked when the picture that came in was of a woman with blonde hair and glasses – Certainly not Jamal’s grandma.
Yep, quite clearly not his own relative.
“[You’re] not my grandma,” Jamal replied with a laughing emoji.
And of course, he then returned the favor...
Hinton from Phoenix, Arizona, sent back a selfie to let her know he was not her grandson.
But, despite not knowing each other, Hinton didn't want to pass up the thanksgiving offering.
And, clearly touched by the sweet text-message exchange, he asked if he could stop by for dinner anyway.
Hinton tweeted out the conversation where it was quick to go viral.
People loved Dench’s promise that Hinton could still come around for Thanksgiving dinner because “that’s what grandmas do… feed everyone.” And although Dench changed her phone number after receiving a flood of messages from people amused by the exchange, Hinton kept in touch with the family following the initial texts.
And on Thanksgiving, Grandma kept her end of the deal.
Dench said Hinton had indeed come over for Thanksgiving dinner, making the drive to Mesa, Arizona, and that it was destiny that the two met.
And the best part?
The pair decided to make a tradition out of the mishap, and have spent Thanksgiving together for the last 4 years.
They've met up every year since their group chat mishap.
And every year, Twitter is blessed with a photo of Hinton and Dench enjoying Thanksgiving together.
Last year Hinton posted a video on YouTube, documenting his and Dench's holiday dinner.
Dench explained in the video that she grew up in the military – her father was in the Navy and her husband was also in the Army. “We moved around a lot so I was always going to new places. And so strangers were not strangers to me,” she explained. “Family is more than blood, it’s the people you want to be with.”
They are now firm friends.
And they are showing no signs of breaking their tradition.
And last year, Hinton decided to host the festivities.
Wanda and her husband were invited to spend Thanksgiving at Hinton’s girlfriend, Mikaela’s, Aunt Tauna’s house.
Hinton says he "feels great" that their wholesome tradition has continued in the years since they first met.
“[Wanda] is a really good person,” Hinton explained to Good Morning America. “I really enjoy the time I spend with her.”
It is the most heartwarming thing.
But now, Hinton has come forward with some devastating news.
Both Wanda and her husband, Lonnie, have been diagnosed with the deadly coronavirus.
And, according to Hinton, Wanda is currently in hospital with both the respiratory virus and pneumonia.
He took to Twitter to share the damning news...
Where he wrote: “I am so sad to announce that Wanda and Lonnie both have COVID-19 and that Lonnie is currently in the hospital fighting both COVID and Pneumonia please send words of love and encouragement their way.”
We wish both Wanda and Lonnie a speedy recovery.

Pasta la Vista
I don’t even want to know how they’re planning on heating up the sauce.
No can opener? No problem. What could possibly go wrong?
PB & P
I know that peanut sauce is a thing for pasta at times, but I was under the impression that you cooked the pasta first.
Do not, under any circumstances, add food coloring to your chicken.
You know what you just don’t see enough of anymore? A bagel with cream cheese and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. There’s probably a reason for that.
No more ordering pizza drunk. You’ve had your privileges taken away.
Roll It Up
I’m not going to lie. That kind of looks like a very convenient vehicle for shoving more mac and cheese in your face.
Bean and Cheese Dip
This, on the other hand, is just a disaster. At least mash the beans or melt the cheese, dude.
Here Fishy, Fishy...
The only way to make a TV dinner of pasta even sadder is to add goldfish crackers into the mix. What did the fish do to deserve this?
What. The. Heck.
It looks like some sort of horrible art project from a resentful elementary student, but it is in fact, pasta. Very, very, burned pasta.
Speaking of Burned
Pro tip: Don’t fall asleep when trying to make pizza and garlic bread. The fire department will thank you.
He's Lovin' It
Somehow, after a night of drinking, he got the Domino’s Pizza guy to buy him McDonald’s in the “special instructions” section of his order.
Dude! The microwave doesn’t work! No problem. I have just thing to heat up cold, limp curly fries.
This little piggy went to the top of the stove completely frozen. Yeah, good luck with that.
Any Way You Slice It
This is what happens when you drink and somehow manage to get into a McDonald’s kitchen through a friend who probably got fired for letting you make this.
Cucumber on pizza isn’t a thing for a reason, but they get a little credit for trying to eat “healthy.”
Just because the cookies come in the same box as the pizza don’t mean the cookies go on the pizza.
Someone tried to make sugar cookies. Someone got confused.
If you can’t decide between waffle fries, nachos, bacon, or gyro meat, just throw all that crap in a box and call it good.
Sorry, but “cajun” falafel isn’t a thing. No amount of Tzatziki sauce is going to make that okay.
Fire In the Hole!
Crap. You mean you’re supposed to take the paper and plastic off before you put it in the oven?
Someone really, really wanted whatever was in that unmarked can. (Spoiler alert: there’s rarely anything good inside an unmarked can.)
I’ve heard of beer can chicken, but I don’t think they meant slam a beer and then disrespect a whole chicken like that.
Iron It Out
Yet another resourceful yet questionable way of reheating last night’s meal. Is cold pizza really that bad?
I Scream, You Scream
We all scream because someone decided to make a sundae on your face when you passed out. On the other hand, what a way to go.
Well, at least they used a plate.
“You know what we should do? GRILL EGGS!” – said no sober person ever.
Putting on the Ritz
That actually takes quite a bit of skill to master when you’re a bit tipsy. It’s like a culinary sobriety test — can you balance the weenie on the cracker?
Who Needs a Pan?
Not this person when making grilled cheese. However, every other sane person on the planet might disagree.
Feeling the Strain
The great thing about this is after you strain out your pasta, you can bust out on awesome backhand and work on your serve a bit.
Sometimes, we have to do things on the side to earn a little bit of extra cash...
And let’s face it, making ends meet isn’t always easy!
Many opt for flexible side jobs...
Bartending, waitressing, cleaning and babysitting are all popular jobs to have on the side to earn a little bit of extra money.
But in the era of modern technology...
Being on social media is actually the way many people now earn a living.
We live in a world overtaken by social media influencers...
People can literally make money from promoting anything on Instagram… and it isn’t as hard as it sounds.
But when we say anything...
We mean anything.
Who's familiar with OnlyFans?
You’ll have probably heard of it by now.
We did a little bit of research...
And we discovered that an OnlyFans account is basically a membership app that allows people to earn money from posting personal content.
The personal content can only be viewed by paying users...
And a lot of adult performers have started their careers through the app, including people wanting to break into the adult film industry.
People can earn a lot of money through the app...
And even though it isn’t to everyone’s taste, it is a consensual and efficient way to earn some extra cash… especially for aspiring adult movie stars.
Of course, the app has an age limit...
Users must be eighteen-years-old and over, including people who post content on the app.
This week, a mom has sparked outrage over her "bizarre" posts on the site.
Why? Well, she’s posted a collection of her late daughter’s private photos.
Liza Martini, who works in the adult entertainment industry, began by posting some of her daughter's photos to Twitter.
And of course, she attracted significant negative attention in doing so.
The original tweet showed an image of Liza with her late daughter, Ava...
In the snap, they were both pictured with nothing on.
Commenters were quick to criticize the strange act.
And sadly, it didn’t end there…
Liza announced via Twitter that the explicit images would now be available on her OnlyFans account - where she posts with her other daughter, Alex...
And, although the tweets featuring her daughter have since been deleted, the images reportedly remain on OnlyFans.
Liza says she is doing it to "keep her memory alive."
In one of the disturbing tweets, she wrote: “To keep her memory alive I’m working on uploading the entire collection of my daughter Ava Martini to my Onlyfans.”
And, following the backlash, Liza released a statement.
“For all of you a**holes that had a problem with me posting pictures of my late daughter I just want you to know I think you guys are the a**holes. My daughter is very beautiful and loved what she did. As a professional model, she did lots of modeling before I ever came along doing what I do. “She was very proud of her body and it was her idea for us to model together she wanted to pose with me to boost her own numbers.”
“The only reason why she did that was to make extra money for her children. (children in which i care of now. ) These babies are one and three , she and I love these children very much and we do what we do to support these babies, this was our thing and we took pride in what we did it is not some ‘sick thing,’ some ‘grooming thing,’ or whatever word you all can came up with.”
Her rant didn't end there.
“My daughter was 27 years old she was well old enough to make a decision on what she did or did not want to do , she was not forced into doing anything!!!! The reason why pictures were posted after her death. 1–was because I had a lot of requests for her. 2–a lot of people moralized her and know how beautiful she was and wanted to remember her. “that’s why her photos were reposted so why not celebrate someone so beautiful and as usual you sick b*****d to take it wrong.”
Liza has now taken down her Twitter account.
The fact that she has tried to justify her behaviour is truly disturbing.
The rapid rise and sudden fall of Tekashi 6ix9ine...
Tekashi 6ix9ine has made one hell of a name for himself… but for all the wrong reasons. He developed a unique persona as a hardcore rapper in 2017 and became well known for his excessively tattooed face and rainbow-dyed hair.
He didn't get off to the best start in life as Daniel Hernandez...
When he was thirteen, his father was murdered just one block from his family home. The experience had a huge impact on Hernandez, and he soon dropped out of school and started working odd jobs to help his mother. “My pops died in eighth grade, and I just started bugging in school,” he told the podcast “No Jumper” in a 2017 interview, “I was thirteen. I was waiting for my pops to come back home, and he never came.”
He turned to selling drugs to make ends meet...
And this was ultimately when Hernandez’s “Tekashi 6ix9ine” persona was born.
Yet, despite his rocky start to life...
The young rapper found quite large success with his music. Hernandez’s first proper single was “Gummo.” Released in November 2017, it hit the Billboard charts and was remixed by the likes of Offset and Lil Wayne.
And he has mingled with some big names...
In 2018, 6ix9ine released “FEFE,” a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, Murda Beatz, and Kanye West.
However, the rapper has consistently been in and out of trouble with the law.
When Hernandez was nineteen and still rising through the ranks of internet fame and notoriety, he attended a party on February 22, 2015, where he performed several sexual acts with a thirteen-year-old girl.
He was first arrested in March 2015...
And Hernandez later told police he thought the girl was nineteen. He’s also contradicted his plea statement in several interviews, insisting that he didn’t engage with the girl sexually and thought she was older.
He was finally sentenced for the child-sex case in 2018...
After a number of procedural delays and appeals, Hernandez was sentenced in October 2018 to 4 years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service. Miraculously, he managed to avoid any prison time.
But that all changed one month later...
In November 2018, the federal authorities announced a series of indictments against Hernandez, his manager, Kifano Jordan, and others they said were members of the notorious Nine Trey Gangsters.
Who are the Nine Trey gangsters?
The United Blood Nation street gang was established in 1993 at the Rikers Island jail complex in New York City and operates on the East Coast of the United States. The gang has allegedly been engaged in the sex trafficking of women and racketeering in Virginia, New York, and other areas. The gang was also allegedly involved in the distribution of illegal drugs.
And Tekashi was allegedly a member of this gang...
The federal lawsuit accused the rapper and the rest of the crew of running a drug-dealing ring and enforcing their activities through violence.
The charges included racketeering and illegal firearms possession...
And the federal authorities also said the group conspired to commit murder.
Takeshi was denied bail...
After he initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, the judge denied him bail, citing an FBI raid in September that found an AR-15 assault rifle and a stolen ID from a man robbed in Times Square.
But in January 2019, after months of the rapper being held, he suddenly changed his tune.
Hernandez suddenly entered a guilty plea to the charges related to his involvement with Trey Nine, according to court records reviewed by INSIDER.
And he agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors in their investigation...
Hernandez began opening up about his doings while in the gang. “I paid a person to shoot at a rival member of Nine Trey to scare him. The shooting took place in Manhattan. I did this to maintain or increase my own standing in Nine Trey,” Hernandez told the judge, according to a court transcript.
He took to the stand...
Altogether, he spent nearly 2 hours on the stand – wearing blue prison scrubs, a white undershirt, and still rocking his rainbow-colored hair, styled in pigtails. In a courtroom potentially filled with current or former Nine Trey members, he testified that he became a member on November 2017, and participated in violent crimes … including shootings, assaults, and drug trafficking.
And he outed members of the gang...
Directly in front of them. He nervously pointed at the defendants, Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack, and Anthony “Harv” Ellison, and ID’d them as Nine Trey Gang Members.
Other musicians shared their thoughts on Hernandez's cooperation...
And many publicly disapproved, both of Tekashi’s actions and his snitching… Because you know what they say! Snitches get stitches.
Even Snoop Dog had his say...
By simply sharing this picture of 6ix9ine with the header, “Tekashi 6ix9ine is safe & secured in jail unit with other snitches” with rat, police officer, and police car emojis. You know it’s bad when even Snoop disagrees…
It's safe to say that Tekashi entered some seriously dangerous waters...
Moral of the story? Don’t join gangs, kids.
Late last year, Hernandez's hearing got underway...
Aka, he found out whether or not his snitching paid off.
Prosecutors broke down just how valuable he had been in convicting 2 members of the Nine Trey Bloods...
Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah Mack were convicted back in October 2019.
Hernandez was originally facing a minimum of forty-seven years in prison.
But, since ratting out his fellow gang members, it was possible that the rapper could be released from prison as early as this year.
His fate was ultimately decided...
He was sentenced to 2 years in prison with 5 years of supervised release. The judge also imposed 300 hours of community service when he is released from prison and a fine of $35,000.
This is absolutely nothing for the crimes that Hernandez has committed...
And it turns out that he won’t even be serving his full sentence.
His release date was officially released last month...
The disgraced rapper was set to be released on the 2nd of August of this year, according to reports.
Of course, this is a drastic change from his original sentence...
But throughout the trial, the twenty-three-year-old cooperated with the authorities and helped inform on other gang members… meaning he got a much easier sentence.
But now, it seems he could be getting out of jail even earlier than August.
Why? Well, it’s thanks, in no small part, to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping through the world right now.
Lance Lazzaro, who represents the jailed rapper, filed a motion asking for him to be released early to his home...
The rapper apparently has severe asthma, meaning he falls into the “at-risk” group for the deadly virus.
So far, he has spent seventeen months in federal custody.
His lawyer filed the motion, referencing the spread of the virus within the US prison system. He believes that the rapper should be allowed to serve the rest of his 2-year sentence at home.
After several appeals to Judge Paul Engelmayer, who sentenced him, as well as the US Bureau of Prisons ...
The star could be released as early as this afternoon.
Lazzaro seems optimistic that the rapper's release will be granted.
“Based on what [Engelmayer] wrote this morning, it seems likely he’s going to grant it,” he told Rolling Stone. This is a developing story. Check back for more updates.
People are finding new ways to keep entertained.
Spending day after day stuck in quarantine, things can start to look pretty monotonous.
It feels like we've been stuck like this for years.
And for kids that love to run around and keep busy, this is extra frustrating.
That's where Spider-Man comes in.
He’s been spotted making his rounds in the UK, brightening up the days of kids and adults alike. Keep scrolling for the heartwarming videos…
Spider-Man is a classic superhero.
It’s crazy to think he first appeared on the hero scene in 1962.
It's no lie that he's one of the most popular superheroes.
Which means he’s had his fair share of origin stories told through a variety of actors.
He was brought to life by Danny Seagren in the '70s.
He was later played by Toby Maguire in the early 2000s. We had to include the most iconic dance of the century… So sorry.
The first reboot stared Andrew Garfield.
In this, we finally got to see Gwen Stacy, who was such an important character in the comics. Unpopular opinion… this version was the best.
But the fan favorite was the controversial British actor, Tom Holland.
Who has grown in popularity ever since, and will remain the face of Spider-Man for generations to come… Or until they cast someone else.
We could all use some superheroes right about now.
And while we all know the real superheroes are the doctors and nurses fighting to keep coronavirus at bay, sometimes it’s nice to let fantasy take over.
Which is exactly what 2 men have done.
The martial arts instructors have been cheering kids up by roaming the streets in Spider-Man costumes.
The 2 heroes have been keeping spirits high.
Andrew Baldock has been entertaining the kids of Stockport and Lancashire in the U.K. for the past week, with his friend Jason Baird who is also a martial arts teacher.
The adoring children watch in awe.
As the pair were pictured making dramatic superhero poses on a variety of streets.
Parents were more than thankful to the guys, who have kids of their own.
Andrew, a dad-of-five, said: “This is a very difficult time for everyone so I just wanted to do something to put a smile on people’s faces. The reaction I have got from kids when I go out has been incredible, they absolutely love it. If I can make someone happy, even if it’s just for a moment, then it’s worth going out.”
They are keeping well away from residents.
Andrew explained that although they’re out spreading joy, that’s all they’re spreading, as they are making sure to keep their distance from homes, and passersby.
He is fully aware that with great power comes great responsibility.
He said: “I fully understand there are rules in place at the moment and I’m making sure that none of them are broken when I go out.”
Andrew came up with the idea after hosting a digital martial arts class.
He said: “Everyone enjoyed it so much that after the session I decided to go outside with it on to see what me neighbours thought. The reaction I got from local kids was amazing, they all absolutely loved it. Lots of parents took pictures of me entertaining their kids and posted them online and it all went a bit mad from there. People from all over Stockport are asking me to go and visit their street.”
Andrew had his costume from his days working in retail.
He used to dress up and attend events. When Jason Baird found out what his friend was up to, he just had to join in.
He followed suit...
The dad of 2, Jason, set up the Facebook page: Stockport Spider-Men and the duo have been playing heroes ever since.
They already have a large fan base.
Andrew said: “We have hundreds of parents asking if we can go and visit their streets to pay their children a visit. We will do as much as we can, but obviously we do have to be careful about where we and how long we stay out for at a time like this.”
Jason and Andrew are hoping their exploits will encourage more people to get their capes on.
Andrew said: “The superhero world is huge and there are plenty of other ones people can dress as. I’d love to see people around the country and maybe even around the world doing what Jason and I are. I think the world could do with a bit of fun at a time like this.” The government is urging people to stay indoors and to avoid going within 6 feet of people if it’s essential you go outside.

Get ready for the cringefest.
We’ve all had our fair share of conference calls, but when you mix work and home life, things can get a little messy, which is exactly what happened for these remote workers…
Upstairs for thinking downstairs for dancing.
A radio show crew reacted in the best way when they saw that their coworker forgot his pants.
They weren't expecting that!
A woman accidentally dropped trou and went to the bathroom on camera.
Zoom did us dirty.
Zoom saves your private chats as meeting minutes!
No one should be subjected to that.
Without a doubt a #zoomfail.
And then there's your quarantine buddies...
This woman had to shoo the strange pantsless man out of frame, but not before he was spotted by thousands.
People are losing their heads.
That’s right, she invited a founder of her company to family drinks.
We've all been there...
I’m more of a Cheetos gal myself.
I don't know what's going on, but it seems stressful.
Helen of! I’m all for the new trend of spelling out your name at the start of a call.
I feel like we should applaud him?
There’s nothing worse than joining a class in the wrong country.
Needs must I guess.
When spring break gets canceled, but you still have to go to class.
One woman got a little too comfortable on camera.
But as it stands, that’s still pretty mild.
Why can't we have nice things?
Well, it looks like Zoom is really taking advantage of our vulnerability right now.
We are pretty adaptable.
We’ve managed to adapt our working lives to adhere to the governments social distancing rules. Keep scrolling to see the video leaving the internet in hysterics…
This hasn't come without its fair share of complications.
As we’ve seen, people haven’t quite got the hang of online conference calls.
One boss, in particular, struggled with the technology behind it.
She managed to turn herself into a potato for the entirety of the online meeting.
All thanks to a sneaky Snapchat filter.
Thankfully one of her employees took a screenshot of the meeting and put it on Twitter for us all to enjoy.
How they managed to keep it together, we'll never know.
The Twitter user, Rach, shared the photo, writing: “My boss turned herself into a potato on our Microsoft teams meeting and can’t figure out how to turn the setting off, so she was just stuck like this the entire meeting.”
That was dodgy territory.
You never know how someone will react, but luckily her boss took it in her stride.
What a queen.
People can’t get enough of the whole thing and let’s face it, we could do with a whole lot more of this in these testing times. One user commented: “You are my hero. I needed this laugh badly tonight. Thank you!” While another added: “You have lifted the spirits of thousands today. Even those sworn off carbs. Viva la spud!” Viva la spud, indeed. Keep scrolling to find out how one man has managed to escape lockdown…
It all started with Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show: Home Edition.
He’s been making home versions of his show to keep the world entertained, and with this hashtag, he truly hit a gold mine. A simple ask: “Tell us a funny thing you’ve done to pass the time in quarantine, and tag it with #ImSoBoredI.” But the results are amazing.
It quickly became clear that many of us had straight up lost our minds.
Weirdly many people decided to start organization projects that were 100% purpose-free. You will never use this!
Ok now this is a project we can get behind.
Anything involving cool mustaches should go to the top of your quarantine list. Right now.
Perhaps some of these projects were taken on as a kind of meditation.
It is impossible to count all the grains of rice. You must release your desire to count the grains of rice in order to become truly enlightened.
But other people did try to do something practical with their time.
You could learn a musical instrument! Or at least enough of one to ensure that your child doesn’t fail at school. That’s fun right?
Someday there will be an entire genre of stories dedicated to "parenting during quarantine."
Many of which will end with WTF? Why is she holding an alligator? Wait, that’s not normal?
If the parents aren't ripping their hair out over what their kids are doing, they're fighting back.
And there’s only one weapon in the war against children: memes. They must be deployed with care.
Can you imagine being quarantined with a baby?
It must be like a hostage situation. You have to take your joy wherever you can find it, even if that means using precious cookie resources to build towers on your child’s head.
Another quality way of creating entertainment out of your children is to offer them an impossible project.
Like opening a can. It’s truly a doozy of a riddle. No one in a million years has solved it.
If everything else fails, pretend that your child is the local fauna.
Take a wildlife documentary. Narrate it in the style of David Attenborough. Opine the bad habits of this beast.
Because at least you haven't reached the state of this family yet.
On the plus side, the kid did spell everything correctly, and appears to have capitalized the “I.” So, that’s something!
If you're not a parent, perhaps you're a teacher.
In that case, the only way to move forward in the face of boredom is to embarrass your students. The best method? TikTok.
You can also embarrass anyone who knows you if you post a video sad enough.
Like this beautiful exhibit of someone playing ping pong with themself. Sad or funny? Both.
But when you're alone you have to use a little bit of imagination to stay entertained.
See how you can transform your home, like this genius who made a faux music festival. Honestly it sounds better than an actual music festival because at this one water doesn’t cost $20 and you can just go to bed whenever you want.
If that's not enough excitement for you, you can always do something immensely stupid.
Get out a bike. Create incredibly unsafe obstacles. Add fire. Now go!
Sometimes stupidity doesn't have to come with danger.
It can come with a toilet instead. All the toilet paper hoarding is making more sense now that I know people are pooping long enough to get in a full Rock Band set.
If none of those brands of stupid appeal to you, just be straightforward.
Nothing says “I’ve lost it” like taping food to your face. On the other hand, those eyebrows are on fleek.
Enough of the goofiness. Now for a project that is truly important:
If you aren’t a full master of Ikea you could be by the end of your quarantine. All you have to do is take apart all your furniture and hope it goes back together. Please. Please don’t be broken.
Ok, now here's a truly useful one.
You can teach your pet something new! Yes, that includes cats. You may not think they’re trainable, but with unlimited time and immense boredom, they are.
Or if you don't have a pet, teach your child.
Just be careful what you teach them. It might have unexpected consequences. Definitely don’t give them any skills that increase their mobility.
Some people have decided to do projects on their home.
With all this time you can seriously improve the value of your place. All you need is 50 rolls of toilet paper.
If you're truly alone in your lockdown there are some options for you.
Create a new friend for yourself. The best version of this project is done with your own blood. For authenticity.
Or you could spread some joy.
From six feet away. You do not want to spread germs while you’re spreading joy, no siree.
Boredom can lead to some amazing and interesting questions.
Like “what can I put in my hair straightener?” The answers may shock you. But I will definitely use this to pop popcorn in the future. Because it’s practical.
Maybe you're more artistically inclined than practical.
In that case you could get some photography practice. Weird art is the perfect thing to do in a pandemic.
Speaking of weird art, let's talk about this Rube Goldberg-esque contraption.
Do you just take it down once you’ve gotten one clean shot? I don’t know if I could bring myself to destroy that much work.
Photoshop also counts as art.
Especially when it produces results as gorgeous as this. I personally like frosted tip Jimmy.
No matter what you do, do not go to work.
Even if it means sending your pet in your place. They’ve been slacking off their whole life. It’s your turn.
Anything you do is better than work.
Even if it’s covering yourself in duct tape. We have no explanation for this one, it’s completely incomprehensible.
But in all seriousness, some people are doing really wonderful things.
A care cleaning package for your neighbors is a great idea. We should all try it.

This is Carole’s official logo.
I told you I had some jokes about Carole and her former husband…
This is a difficult game of “spot the difference.”
21. Make it make sense.
Carole, sweetie, just go home.
Be like Jeff. Jeff gets away with a lot.
23. A new personal best.
I think I could easily beat it though…
24. The new normal.
I didn’t even bat an eyelid.
25. The new normal 2.
What’s wrong with it? It’s Allen in a bubble bath… So?
26. Very exotic.
I’m ready to leave. I didn’t sign up for this.
I’m exhausted from just looking at the memes.
28. Drug Lord.
Trust me, he is the normal one.
I did love John Finlay a lot to be honest.
30. Line Graph.
If you haven’t watched it yet, you’re in for a treat!
31. Hell's Kitchen.
Twitter has taken things to a whole new level with this meme. I’m here for it.
Someone take this crazy b**** to court!
33. No regrets.
I don’t regret watching the show one little bit. Those of you who do should be ashamed of yourselves.
The only answer to 99% of our problems.
What’s worse than seeing yourself on video chat? Seeing Carole on the other side.
36. The Jonas Brothers.
I’m sure this is a snapshot taken from their performance of “Play My Music.” No lies.
2021 will be our year.
38. The Lion King.
Whoever did this needs arresting immediately.
This is what men think when they hear the word “feminist.”

It’s important to teach your children important life lessons and Tiger King does just that.

These are just the facts.
42. Mistaken Identity.
Just in case you couldn’t tell the difference.
We’re in a strange world right now, but I’m just going with the flow… What else can you do, eh?
No one could ever compare.
46. American Dentistry.
But guess what? John Finaly got some nice-ass veneers, that you can see if you keep scrolling so leave him alone.
47. Guess who?
It ain’t Carole.
48. Family Photo.
Whoever edited this deserves an award.

51. Amazon Orders.
I’m ordering one too!
52. Who is it?
Don’t tell me Hillary’s given up her political career?
53. Spot the difference.
Still can’t see the difference…
Crazy breeds crazy and that’s the bottom line… Because Joe Exotic said so.
55. Cute or cute?
Is Carole a secret VSCO girl? That’s the real question we should be asking ourselves.
“Name a better duo…” Twitter is really killing me off right now.
57. Carole's Wishes.
Let’s hope her remains aren’t fed to tigers… Like her husband’s were.
No questions asked, lock them all up.
59. Florida Georgia Line.
Put some respect on Florida Georgia Line’s name, please.
Don’t do that to an entire nation.
61. Living contradiction.
You can be many things in life, don’t be a Carole.
I’m sure these were taken at the Presidential Debate in 2016, right?
I feel sorry for everyone else in the world called Carole Baskin. This show really exposed her.
I told you, I won’t tolerate any disrespect towards my king, John Finlay.
