what the fuck is the matter with you tumblr

Dear Tumblr, about your new fail

animalstalkinginallcaps: I burst with joy and fruit flavor every time I think of the many fine internet people that find these little bits of insomniac babbling amusing. I have no idea why you like them, but I love that you do. I think you are all sexy weirdos and that your hair looks great today.
