For the past week you’ve done nothing but work, typing away in your cubicle, secluded from the world while the rest of us had an amazing time laughing at hilarious videos and enjoying everything else the internet has to offer. Well, now it’s your time. These are 25 of the week’s best links, articles, images, and videos from all over the web just giving you a glimpse of everything you’ve missed out on. And seriously…it was a lot. The last Blockbuster standing and refusing to fold, research that shows why some people might be single, and of course, the most recent news out of the White House.

THE WINE LOVER MELTDOWN

Nor is it because wines they would happily sacrifice their first born to have a glass of and would have otherwise raved about, when told the glass contains a variety of some cheap wine they are to identify, are more than likely to claim it tastes akin to horse piss.

Remember the dark, dark day when Crocs came out? Middle-aged mums worldwide were immediately into them, knowing they’d be perfect for their gardening, while four-year-old kids could just about get away with them as they ran around the park.
