I avoid almost all social media. No Facebook, no X, no Pinterest. I know this puts me hopelessly out of touch with the real world.
My one time-wasting indulgence is a phone app called iFunny. It can be pretty sexist and racist, and a lot of the politics there shivers my timbers. But as the name says, sometimes there’s funny stuff: epic fails, dog videos, groaning dad jokes.
I’m struck, too, at the earnestness of some of the posts. There are posters who want to live a good life and want others to do the same. So today, a little sampling of some iFunny memes – not particularly funny, but surprisingly insightful in an unexpected place.
