"The cheese I was eating reminded me of my ex from Wisconsin."

Posted on

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community for the funniest, most ridiculous reasons they've cried while on their period. Here are their all-too-relatable stories:

1. Dog siblings

"I was watching last week's episode of MasterChef Junior, in which Gordon Ramsay asks an 8-year-old if she has any siblings. She replies, 'Yeah! Well, my brother is a Golden Retriever.' Yes. I cried. She said her DOG WAS HER BROTHER!

—Kate Moore, Faceook


5. Imagining a world without Julie Andrews

"I was browsing on the internet and it came to my attention that Julie Andrews is 80 years old. Then I thought about all of the joy she brought the world with the Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, The Princess Diaries, etc. I couldn't handle the idea that one day there will be a world where Julie Andrews no longer exists so I broke down sobbing."

6. And one without Taylor Swift / Via

"I realized that one day Taylor Swift is going to stop making music and I will have to figure out my life and the soundtrack to my life on my own."

—Kristen Warren, Facebook


8. This near-death experience

"I sat down on the toilet at my friend's house without looking in first and after I peed, the water was blue. I started crying because I thought blue pee had just come out of my body and was convinced that I was dying. Turns out my friend had blue cleaner in the toilet and had forgotten to remind me to flush it before I peed."


9. The cuteness of raccoons

"I once broke down and cried, full on sob-fest style, because my husband said that he didn't think raccoons were cute. I then showed him multiple photos of raccoons to change his mind and cried even more while doing so.

—Robyn van der Merwe, Facebook

10. The cost of safety pins

"I was going to buy a $2 pack of safety pins, but then I thought about my student loans, so called my mom crying and asking her 'Can I even afford safety pins?! How will I eat this week?! Why did I go to college?!'"

—Maria Núñez, Facebook

11. A tragic mistake on Chopped

"While watching Chopped, one of the chefs left the onions in the deep fryer and forgot to plate them. He didn't get sent home, but I was still hysterical because it would have really tied the dish together."

—Frankie Nuckolls, Facebook


16. Literally anything that happens on The Voice

NBC / Via

"I always know my period is about to start by watching The Voice. Chosen or not, I cry. Four chair turn? 'They want this so bad, I'm so happy for them.' Two chair turn? 'They deserved more, they were so good!' No chair? Oh boy. That's when it gets deep. 'How dare you Adam Levine? They worked so hard!'"



17. The fact that you don't speak Danish / Via

"Once while I was watching a really intense episode of a Danish crime series on Netflix (Danish audio/English subtitles), I started crying because I don't speak Danish."


21. Not having your face on money

"I started sobbing when I realized that my face will most likely never be on currency. I was just staring at a $10 bill incredibly jealous of Alexander Hamilton."



27. The jumping ability of lions / Via

"I cried because I read that lions can jump long distances, and was concerned that one would attack me. I live in North America; lions are really not a threat to me."


29. That you'll never be an Olympic figure skater

NBC / Via

"I had a sudden epiphany that I will never be able to achieve my dream of becoming an Olympic figure skater. Note: I've never been ice skating in my 27 years of life."


31. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Fox / Via

"I watched the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on commentary for the millionth time, and cried dramatically when Joss Whedon said, 'And that's it, thanks for watching my show.' 'No, Joss, THANK YOU.'"
