Ladies and gentlemen, we’re back with another edition of our “Top Ten Tweets” of the week! I thought we’d switch things up this week and take a look at an epidemic that’s destroying America’s youth: The use of the word “bae.”
I’m not sure who originally coined the term, but my best guess is that someone effed up when texting “babe” and tried to play it off. Then they got called out on it and said it meant “before anyone else.” The other person liked it and told their friends. Eventually this atrocious term took hold of their friends’ brains, and they in turn began using it. Somehow “bae” eventually spread into the Twitterverse and from there it went viral.
We’ll be asking you to join the “Mass Appeal ‘Bae’ Kickstarter Campaign” soon to provide relief efforts for the many minds damaged by this terrible term, but in the meantime check out our “Top Ten ‘Bae’ Tweets” of the week.
idc who you text but if your calling me babe, baby, or bae, I better be the only one your calling that.

If you post pictures and tweets every day about your "bae" I literally hope and pray you have a terrible break up.

4 kinds of fear: - "condom pop" - "bae i miss my period" - "wrong password" - "we need to talk"

Yup, when I forget my password it’s just as scary as when the condom breaks. *Facepalm*
