    LOL

    Summer Anne Burton received an "LOL" badge on Apr 23 because their post made people laugh. Out loud. Not literally. Why do we say LOL when we don't mean it?

    Summer Anne Burton earned an "Awwwww" badge on Aug 22 because they shared something with the group that was VERY VERY CUTE. Like possibly even dangerously cute. Actually, seriously - be careful with all that cute you're just throwing around, Summer Anne Burton. You could hurt somebody.

    Who has gotten the award recently:

  • Classy

    Classy

    Classy

    Summer Anne Burton earned a "Classy" badge on Feb 22 either because they did something hell of classy or because they did something that wasn't very classy at all and we were being ironic. Frankly, either option is pretty damn cool in our books.

    Who has gotten the award recently:

  • Cool Story Bro

    Cool Story Bro

    Cool Story Bro

    Summer Anne Burton earned a "Cool Story Bro" badge on Feb 22! We're not totally sure why because we are not hip to the kids' lingo these days on account of the fact that we are so, so old. Cool story though.

    Facepalm!

    Facepalm!

    Summer Anne Burton earned a "Facepalm" badge on Feb 22 because, well, facepalm. "Facepalm" is what you say when someone does something unbelievably stupid like trying to explain a pretty common piece of Internet terminology to a bunch of people on the Internet.

    Who has gotten the award recently:

  • IDGAF

    IDGAF

    IDGAF

  • LMAO

    LMAO

    LMAO

    Summer Anne Burton earned an "LMAO" badge on Feb 22 because they posted something very funny and then we all (figuratively) laughed until (again, figuratively) our backsides literally became detached from our legs and fell crashing to the floor in a horrible mess of flesh and gore. We would ROTFL, but that would just exacerbate the problem.

    Who has gotten the award recently:

    OMFG

    OMFG

    Summer Anne Burton earned an "OMFG" badge on Feb 22 because they posted something that made everyone so incredibly surprised and impressed that they were moved to exclaim and to interject an expletive into that exclamation and then to turn the whole thing into an acronym, thereby blunting the initial force of the expletive but not the intensity of the emotion that inspired the reaction in the first place.

    Who has gotten the award recently:

    Wut

    Wut

    Summer Anne Burton earned a "Wut" badge on Feb 22 for a post that was extremely confusing and perhaps a little bit worrying but also, surely, if you can't say inane and convoluted things on the Internet, what the hell do we even have an Internet for? Never be ashamed to express yourself. Never ever ever.

    Who has gotten the award recently:

  • Awesome

    Awesome

    Awesome

    Summer Anne Burton earned an "Awesome" badge on Sep 06 because they said or did something that was frankly inspiring. We went with "Awesome" because, tragically, no one really says "Rad" any more.
