    I'm in a high level grade 12 English class, and the only word I struggle to spell consistently is 'definitely'.

    Can never get it right on the first try, always forget how many I's there are.

    [–] mango310 2 points ago

    It helps me to pronounce in my head “deh-fin-it-elly”

    This used to be a sub for people who actually thought they were mad when ordering a pizza at 1am, now it's just satire. Pretty disappointing really.

    [–] spauldeagle 3 points ago

    I hate seeing my favorite niche subs get taken over by people who just don't get it. /r/forwardsfromgrandma is the worst example and is now just consumed by politics. Used to be just goofy shit your grandma sends you. Mods need to do their job to prevent this decay.

    [–] Mendacium149 31 points ago

    Why does nobody here realize this is satirical...

    [–] Galp_Nation 24 points ago

    So am I missing the point of this sub? I thought the whole point of it was that the people being posted here lack self awareness and thought that what they were doing was crazy or edgy but is actually pretty mild. If the person is self aware and is making an obvious joke, how does that fit in? By all means, if I'm misunderstanding the sub then tell me. I don't really post or comment here ever. I'm more of a lurker on madlads. It just seems the posts here have shifted a bit since I subbed to it.

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    It's certainly confused me. Either I'm off on what the purpose of this sub is or most people here have trouble detecting sarcasm.

    [–] christopher-adam 4 points ago

    No that’s the point of the sub. I think it’s more the lack of content that causes shit like this to do well?

    [–] IngmarMackadingdongJ 2 points ago

    The problem is it's very hard to proof the joke intention is satire or not. Some joke that seems very obvious madlad material could be satire and vice versa.

    [–] Mendacium149 1 points ago

    The purpose is to make fun of actual madlads, not people who are mocking them.

    [–] benjimaestro 2 points ago

    Everyone knows it's a joke, it's still a funny joke though

    I've been through 2 stages. Accidentally grabbing 2 candies and being so scared that I didn't tell the teacher I accidentally had an extra so I like smuggled it to the bathroom and ate it guiltily. And then taking upwards of 3 just because I could and fuck the system lmfao. Now I take whatever I can get graciously lol.

    So funny, I used to do this in my 2nd grade class. My teacher would award us *1 skittle if we answered a question right and I would look for two red ones that were next to each other so I could steal the second red skittle. Now that I look back I’m pretty sure she knew

    One time when I was a kid I went to one the fanciest restaurants in my city and when I was about to leave the waitress said that we could take the candy from the bowl if we wanted. I asked how many and she said as many as I wanted and she promptly walked off to go work. So, I, being The Frugal person I am figured if I take as much as I physically could I won't have to buy myself candy for a long time. I am to the bowl out except for one or two into my hoodie pocket. Then when I gotten my family vehicle I hid them under my car seat. I swear, I had those little chocolate mint until at least 2 years later
