The dapper awesomeness that is Trevor Noah wearing a tuxedo doesn’t make this pill any easier to swallow: 2015 was really shitty.
Down the line it will be the year that we will collectively sweep under the rug. On a timeline of the human race it will simply be omitted, like the 13th floor in an elevator. But clever people will tell you that even though it’s never mentioned, the 13th floor does in fact exist and, unfortunately, 2015 totally just happened, whether we like it or not (and we shouldn’t, really).
Last night The Daily Show did a recap of the biggest news stories of 2015. There are the obvious buzzkills, many of which involve firearms or Donald Trump, but even the innocuous stories make us look like total morons. Remember “the dress” or The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge? Smh.
There are a couple glimmers of hope: the legalization of same-sex marriage, “Hotline Bling” (aptly described as the tale of “a man having a seizure inside of a tanning bed”), pizza rat and… uh… well that’s about it.
But it’s important that we do not forget 2015, so that it is never, ever repeated. Watch the recap below and revel in the shittiness that was this year.
