The fridge and the voodoo one 🤣👍

Ok, I didn't write this tweet but it was on my feed and it's hilarious and apropos so...

"I can't believe it's riot season already. I still have my Covid decorations up."

Yes, this absurdity is a real Contra Costa county guidelines update. (It's a county in California E by NE of San Francisco)
Not sure if this one is a laugh or cry though

Oh, lord! The VW bus! It would shake at 65 mph, which back then was a typical speed on any highway. We had some good times, possibly because we were young and stupid. Somehow, we survived anyway.

In one of my books I wrote about the clutch cable snapping. It was so common that people kept a spare clutch cable in the vehicle. My characters, however, dug around in the back and found the previously snapped clutch cable.
