    This is basically Twitter's Greatest Hits.

    Have you ever fallen down a rabbit hole on a Twitter thread, reading response after response? OF COURSE YOU HAVE, YOU'RE HERE!

    Well, I hope you're ready to fall down some more rabbit holes, because we've rounded up some of the funniest and/or just plain outrageously entertaining threads that will keep you scrolling for days:

    1. Like these photos women shared of the weird stuff they found in guy's bathrooms.

    ladies what’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever found in a boy’s bathroom? allow me to start

    The photos are alarming, hilarious (or both).

    2. Also funny? People confessing the obvious things they only just realized.

    What's the most mundane but thunderous epiphany you ever had? Something so ridiculously dull or elementary that still bowled you over when you figured it out?

    Like this guy's hilarious realization.

    @sproudfoot @ChickenPoutine I thought Arson was a guy. The news would say "Arson is suspected." And I was like, 'Another one?!? They gotta catch this guy!'

    3. These people's awkward moments — inspired by the tweet below — will have you cringe-laughing.

    Airport cashier: "Have a safe flight." Me: "You too!" I CAN NEVER COME HERE AGAIN.

    Wow, just wow.

    6. And while we're on the subject of lies, why not get lost in the dumbest ones people ever told?

    What’s the dumbest lie you’ve told?

    How dumb are these lies? Pretty, pretty dumb.

    @elizaskinner I used to tell people that I was the voice that whispered “zoom zoom” at the end of Mazda commercials.

    7. For something a little more uplifting, here people share photos of their grandparents looking fly back in the day.

    Also for no reason whatsoever, if you've got pics of your grandparents looking fly, let's see 'em! 😍

    Like this terrific-looking future grandmother.

    @IsaacFitzgerald This is my favorite picture of my grandmother.

    8. This thread of people sharing the times they met celebrities — but in the most boring way possible! — is surprisingly engrossing.

    Your most boring, mundane, inconsequential celebrity encounter. Go!

    Like this former kid who thought he knew fine dining.

    @ArielDumas I thought Red Lobster was the pinnacle of fine dining.

    10. While we're talking about kids, here people confess the dumb things they did growing up.

    Yep, he did that.

    @MotherOfDoggons When I was 5 I put M&Ms in my ear so I could hear them talk like the commercials

    11. And here's one more funny thread about kids, this time about the dumb things people believed growing up.

    Where's that 'ridiculous things you believed as a kid' thread? Because I just remembered that I used to think the two teams on University Challenge were stacked one on top of the other like the way it's cut together.

    Like, lol.

    16. Here's a relatable and funny thread where people share the words that their family — and only their family — uses.

    What words, expressions, or pronunciations are unique to your familiolect? Quote-tweet with your favourites!

    We used to refer to uneaten pizza crusts as "pizza bones". And my dad calls the room where is computer is the "computorium".

    17. And this thread of people sharing the most implausible things that happened to them will have you eating the proverbial popcorn.

    OK Twitter. It's late but let's see if we can make this interesting: What is the least plausible story about yourself that's true?

    Mom! I mean...Mom!!!

    My mother secretly gave away my pet guinea pigs to the animal shelter. The next day at school the shelter did a show&tell in my classroom and brought my guinea pigs 😭
