That's clearly the look of a thoroughly embarrassed woman, teetering on the verge of hot jealousy tears. Or, as the bride herself would later explain when somebody bothered to ask her, the look of a person who is overjoyed that her friend just got engaged.
Yeah, you see, the "rude" proposal that ruined this bride's wedding and earned the wrath of the Internet (despite the fact that, to everyone who angrily commented on it, all the people in the photograph are total fucking strangers) was actually the bride's idea. This should teach us a lesson about not getting ourselves whipped up into a howling, frothy rage over completely anonymous sources sharing photographs of completely anonymous people with outrageous captions, but it won't, because we are all monsters.
Caitlyn Jenner Didn't "Beat" An Army Veteran For An ESPN Award
Caitlyn Jenner, after making her first public appearance as a woman, has been bestowed the ESPY Awards' Arthur Ashe Courage Award for having the bravery to come out as transgender after having been a famous male Olympic athlete and television star, and, to a lesser extent, for having the courage to spell her name with a "y" instead of a more traditional vowel. Because the Internet is a terrible place that disallows anyone's love and happiness, regardless of how few people are even remotely affected by it, the following meme was birthed from the mess of despair like an orcish hellbeast:
Though we can get behind the idea of all awards being assigned based on Death Race performance.
According to the blaring anuses who reposted this canned rhetoric thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter, an Army veteran named Noah Galloway was neck-and-neck in the running with Jenner for the Arthur Ashe Courage Award until the Politically Correct Obamagarchy forced everyone to be gay. The completely unsourced meme became so prevalent that ESPN had to issue an official statement saying that there was actually no such thing as a runner-up for the award in question.
Yep. Not only is this meme a fat sack of nothing, but as far as people can tell, it came from a single tweet by a Boston radio personality:
His Twitter byline: "Politics, sports, and revenge." We're not sure which of those this qualifies as.
That's it. A single, dickwad tweet from someone with literally no credibility was enough to make a viral meme so popular that the world had to stop, take a breath, and re-establish the fact that random signs held up by strangers, even on the Internet, are not to be trusted.
To be sure, Galloway isn't any less deserving of a Courage Award, but in the interest of perspective: Immediately after Jenner came out as transgender, a petition signed by more than 15,000 people made its way to the International Olympic Committee seeking to strip Jenner of her gold medals in men's decathlon, because, "Ms. Jenner (as talented as she is) claims that she has always believed herself to be truly female, and therefore was in violation of committee rules regarding women competing in men's sports and vice-versa." You may recognize that as both ridiculous horseshit and the exact reason Jenner was given an award for courage.
