* If you order [[https://www.reddit.com/r/grilledcheese/ /r/grilledcheese]] by Top All-Time, the first post is a rant with over 25 000 upvotes and 11 gold titled "you people make me sick" explaining that anything with more than bread, spread (usually butter), and cheese is a melt and doesn't belong on the subreddit. The second post is a hideous grilled cheese sandwich made by an airport [[CanadaEh Tim Hortons]] tagged [[NotSafeForWork NSFW]]\NSFL\Gore. The third post, made after the first, is titled "open faced grilled cheese with tomato sauce", and is blatantly a pizza still resting in its box. Also high on the list: a repost of the same pizza, and a cheeseburger made to [[BlatantLies appease the author of the rant.]]

--->"As someone who has dropped more babies than I can remember (some were dropped while I was drunk, so an official tally is near impossible), allow me to alleviate some of the guilt you may be feeling. First off, babies aren't some delicate, fragile creatures whose lives are easily extinguished like the kitten my cousin Ronnie hugged too hard when we were kids. Babies are durable, like Crocs, and are designed by evolution to withstand all sorts of trauma."
