When I think of Taylor Swift, my mind immediately goes to the category it has labeled as "sheer hilarity." From the Kanye incident to the bleating goat videos, the poor girl has become synonymous with accidental antics, and those are the best kind in my opinion.
Taylor, who has skyrocketed to fame thanks to a warbly, country-meets-pop music catalog and a really complicated love life, is just so easy to be amused with.
She's Disney-cute, a tween icon, and has a laundry list of famous ex-boyfriends she uses as the target of her multiplatinum breakup anthems. She's a magnet for silly situations in a modern-day Lucille Ball kind of way, but with that whole "serial dater" problem that Ricky would have put the kibosh on.
Given her penchant for attracting absurdities, it seems that not only I, but the entire Internet, have made a pastime out of amusing themselves with Ms. Swift. Born out of the awkward anthems and spurred on with the help of a disorderly Mr. Kanye West, Swifty has become the subject of many a meme to pop up on the web.
What's even funnier than those memes, though, is when some silly teen girl decides to post on social media about how much her life is like Taylor Swift's, only to be snipered the fuck down by a witty friend. Believe it or not, that happens often, with the results being utterly hilarious.
I've included those sniper memes, along with a few more badass examples of Taylor-based hilarity, so that you can get all your snark in before she's in town for a concert this Thursday at the Toyota Center.
Oh, and to the snipering counterparts, you are my heroes, you witty sons of bitches. I hope to be just like you one day.
