DOWN WITH HOMEWORK DOWN WITH TWEENS. When they’re not smacking unsuspecting strangers or calling Jennifer Lawrence an “ugly negro,” they’re jumping into ball pits at Walmart, a mess that some underpaid grandpa praying for the sweet release of death will have to clean up at 2 a.m. THE TWEEN WITCHING HOUR.
BuzzFeed first informed us of the “#ballpit” meme, which has steadily grown in popularity this week. The concept is simple and infuriating: a no-good tween climbs up the fence separating mankind from rubber balls and jumps in, spilling the uncaged animals; they’re now free to cause mayhem and roll into the women’s underwear section, which is really awkward for Larry when he has to retrieve them. Won’t somebody PLEASE think of the adults?
