It’s been said to death at this point but it’s still true: we live in strange times.

Tumblr, of course, has always been strange, so it’s no surprise that the denizens of that particular corner of the internet have managed to keep up with and express these strange times in a fittingly strange and oddly satisfying way.

You know what I mean?

Maybe it’s easier if I just showed you.

Like, for instance, with these fourteen random examples:

14. Spied a spider

True fact: I only play video games late at night when I’m trying to sleep and Animal Crossing is a VERY different experience for me.

13. The moral arc

I guess that’s progress of a kind?

12. Millennial detective

“I don’t know Greg, it’s literally your job to find out.”

11. Best of the worst

It’s spooky and stressful in there, you can’t make me.

Weird way to reveal that you’re a ghost.

Just admit that it’s all chaos and we can move on.

4. Quality control

Stop snickering, it’s definitely not at all funny.

Some of us have been waiting our whole lives to hear this news.

2. Wish granted

Weird, we all had the same idea.

Why does he look like he belongs in a Peanuts cartoon?

There’s probably no way to properly express how weird this year has been, but dang it all if these posts didn’t get close.

How would you explain the times we live in?
