No Filter: Samira Wiley Is Here to Service Your Engine

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to discuss the latest in queer celebrity Instagram. The internet is still in an uproar over the [very likely very manufactured] revelation that Melanie Brown and Geri Halliwell totally did it while the Spice Girls were at the peak of their popularity! Some say it was a year-long affair, some say Geri is upset, some say that this news has derailed ticket sales for the tour (as though news of girls kissing each other has ever ruined literally anything in pop music). Who are we? Why are we here? Is Ariana Grande bisexual and would it matter even a little bit if she admitted she was? Can we all agree Ariana Grande is probably not a very good kisser?

I am now keeping my word and posting this picture selected by @tobiasjessojr challenging my friends who are logical and smart thinkers, to have a crack at guessing the answer to the riddle below. When you think you know, Private message me the answer. If you are not going to follow the instructions after you lose, don't bother playing. Your turn! Read the riddle.

Riddle: It's 7:00 AM. You are asleep and there is a sudden knock on the door. Behind the door are your parents who came to have breakfast. In your fridge are bread, milk (pasteurized), juice, and a jar of jam. To answer, what will you open first? * Answer directly through Private message only please.

I fell for this joke earlier in my feed and I am now posting it here as an act of protest. The correct answer is dumb and bad and I refuse to participate henceforth. However, Teddy Geiger is cute and good.


I’ve never identified with Cameron Esposito more in my life.
