18 Ways I Tried To Describe BuzzFeed To My Parents In 2012

An ode to my favorite 2012 buzz.

1. “We wrote about this cat that came to the office who’s kind of a big deal.”

We threw a party for him and everything.

2. “We wrote about sports ‘n’ stuff.”

(I mean, who else was gonna ask this, Dad? Huh? WHO?)

(And who else was gonna make this connection?)

3. “We wrote about this really important athlete who’s, like, really really important.”

(And he’s gonna marry me someday, I promise.)

4. “We wrote about gay marriage in Washington!”

AMAZING.

5. “And politics!”

Like, a lot of politics. But this was my fave.

6. “We wrote about this time the Lion King happened in real life at the office.”

“C’mon, Mom, there was a lion, a monkey, AND a warthog!”

7. “We wrote about some really cool people.”

WHO WILL MAKE YOU CRY.

8. “I mean, obviously we wrote about cats. Everybody loves cats.”

DUH!

9. “And dogs. C’mon, Dad. Do you NOT like dogs?”

Yeah, you like dogs.

10. “And little kids growing up with their pets.”

Pretty adorable, right?

11. “And ugly animals.”

Because they need love, too.

12. “We wrote about this little girl who, like, took over America.”

Honey Boo Boo is basically part of our family.

13. “We wrote about things people really hate.”

Gross.

14. “And things people really love.”

EVERYBODY LOVES JENNIFER LAWRENCE MOM, DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND?!

15. “And the world’s smartest celebs.”

Important.

16. “And the world’s best monkey.”

Seriously, though. This monkey.

17. “And strange, glorious lands.”

FULL OF CATS, DAD. FULL. OF. CATS.

18. “And, most importantly, butts.”

YES, THIS IS SHAMELESS SELF PROMO, BUT BUTTS ARE REALLY IMPORTANT.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND BUZZFEED NOW, MOM AND DAD?!
