"I've had sunburns that have lasted longer than Scaramucci. They were less painful to deal with too."

The newest-now-suddenly-turned-former White House communications director Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci has officially been ousted after just 10 days on the job. The news was met with a lot of screaming, cackling, and downright shock from folks online.

Here were all the things that people claimed had a longer life than The Mooch's tenure.
