Saturday Open Thread Gif Party!

It’s been way too long since we’ve done this. Party time!

What are your favorite, most randomly awesome gifs of all time? Ones that you never have an excuse to use but love anyway? I’ll start.

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

The problem with being a single girl at a bachelorette party is that you have to pretend that you’re wild and fun and that you don’t really just want to be in your sweats on the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s like all the married girls who leave early. Eventually you’re just drinking to dull the pain in your feet so you can keep dancing.

Forget those, I need a gif of THIS:

The hostess, Winnie Klotz, a former dancer and for decades the photographer for the Metropolitan Opera, startles the gathering by grabbing her 84-year-old ankle and lifting it straight above her 84-year-old head. “Do I have your attention?” she asks. Apparently unsatisfied with the response, she slides into a split on the floor of Harry’s Roadhouse.

Ginsburg says later: “She does that all the time.”
