Is it possible to say something offensive, but in a nice way? The question would be perplexing and probably without answers if not for this Instagram account.

Welcome to “Tastefully Offensive,” the page dedicated to sharing the most blunt and direct, sarcastic and funny tweets shared on the internet. They reflect what we all have been thinking lately: from hopes that 2022 is a precedented situation to someone pointing out how Leonardo DiCaprio owes his whole career to the iceberg that sank the Titanic, there’s a lot to digest.

And decide whether the tweets below are offensive or aren’t. Upvote your favorites as you go!

"Tastefully Offensive originally started as a website for sharing funny and viral content in June 2010 when the Internet was a much different place," Christian Baker, the founder and curator of Tastefully Offensive told Bored Panda

"It started as a fun side project while I was working as a marketing manager for a wine company. After about a year the website became popular enough to become my full-time job, which continued for around 7 years. During that time, the website branched into several social media platforms including Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram."

I wish I could upvote this twice. I've started just using random things I see while driving or watching a movie.

Today, Christian is a full-time bartender which he calls his main passion in California’s Napa Valley. "But my love for Internet humor has never gone away," he said. "While the site still exists and is a great source of funny content, my main involvement with Tastefully Offensive is curating the Instagram page. I mainly share content (memes) that I find funny, which mostly get sourced from Twitter, Instagram or get shared with me by other IG users."

Was actually thinking about this just today--men are screwed. They will always be found for that reason.

Christian says that his Instagram page Tastefully Offensive "basically feels like a place where he shares things he finds funny with 230k friends." He added that he loves when followers of the IG page add witty comments on posts and said that they are often funnier than the posts themselves.

When asked what the name Tastefully Offensive refers to, Christian said: "it refers to my sense of humor, which is sometimes on the offensive side but usually still comfortably sharable with parents and grandparents."

This reminds me of when I was at a McDonald's and there was a little kid refusing to leave the playground at 7pm. The mum said, "Thats fine, you can stay. The monsters come out soon". The kid beat her to the car.

I recently learned that acorns also sort of pop. I know it's not really a food, but it's fun to watch them explode out of a fire and zip around like burning hot missiles.

The irony is that a lot of academic subjects work that way. Advanced academia is the ultimate pyramid scheme where they try and pull in lots of hopefuls to expensive levels of study to perpetuate their own purpose of teaching and finding replacements along the way. It's the biggest jerk circle on the planet.

Along time ago, my cousin and I went to a Halloween party. She is socially awkward, so she went as a mime and didn’t say a word to anybody.

And then keep standing just at the door occasionally knocking again or trying the handle, even after the person inside has said "Occupied". Bonus points for having others with you and having the conversation "Did someone answer? I'm not sure anyone is in there. The light is on though. Did you try knocking? Maybe try the door again" >.< So helpful

In retrospect, I should have gotten the extended warranty when I was born. But what did I know, I was a baby.
