@IanKarmel, joking about the buzz surrounding Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after reporter Eddie Scarry tweeted a photo of the congresswoman-elect in the Capitol building, writing, “That jacket and coat don’t look like a girl who struggles.” His tweet referenced an interview in which Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Times that her congressional salary doesn’t kick in for three months, so she was watching her finances. Scarry’s finance-shaming tweet was met with swift backlash. He later deleted it and claimed it was a compliment.

It’s shocking how many people believed we lived inside the Earth, like it was some kind of egg.

@JordanNairne, reacting to a video from Twitter user @LoveMahalHappy of her sister learning that humans live on the earth’s surface, and not “inside” it as she’d believed. Her sister’s shock and subsequent drawing of where she believed humans lived in relation to the planet brought Twitter users to tears — and got some to admit they too thought we lived inside the earth.

Comic books are ageless. That’s what makes them, and Stan Lee, so special.

@MsSheriJackson, blasting Bill Maher for saying in a blog post that Stan Lee only inspired people to “watch a movie” and that comics were not “sophisticated literature.” Twitter users hit back, saying comics taught children to read and tackled dark subjects. They also called Maher a hypocrite, since he was in a deleted scene in “Iron Man 3.”
