What Iconic Vine Best Describes Your Life Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Even though Vine died out a few years ago, we all still have a real appreciation for the meme value those tiny clips gave us. It’s wild to think about how many classic memes we wouldn’t have today if it weren’t for Vine.

The important question is: what Vine would you be, given the chance? Never fear. We have the answer here. Read your zodiac sign to find out which Vine you are.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @keniavfit

Aries, given a little leeway, you can be one hell of a spitfire personality. You’re not all about aggression, but with your mix of energy, impatience, and pride, that’s what sometimes comes out. That’s why the John Cena police officer Vine perfectly captures who you are. However, Aries, you’re not the police officer in this scenario. You’re the girl who kicks him.

Instagram: @johncena_yard

Vine

GIRL: F*ck the police.

*Girl kicks policeman from a chair*

NARRATOR: It was at this moment the young girl realized she had just kicked officer JOHN CEEEENAAAA.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @littlbrune

The guy asking the girl for her number is your Vine, Taurus. This is less about your independence and grounded nature, and more about your sense of persistence and stubbornness. Because let’s face it, you would argue with someone about their use of the word fat. Especially if there’s a relationship at stake.

Instagram: @ashton.miranda.interested

Vine

GUY: Hey girl lemme get yo’ number.

SAME GUY, BUT WITH A BLONDE WIG AND LIPSTICK: Sorry, I don’t date fat guys.

GUY: That’s okay, I’m not fat, I’M OBESE.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @_princessdee

Gemini, you’re expressive and quick-witted, just like pretty much every Vine out there. But your split personality brings to mind the Vine featuring a dog eating a butterfly. Are you the dog? Or are you its owner? For all you know, you could be the butterfly. To be honest, it probably depends on your mood.

Instagram: @pugloversclub

Vine

OWNER: It’s a butterfly, Bentley.

*Pug takes butterfly in its mouth and runs off*

OWNER: NO! NO! BENTLEY! BENTLEY!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @betsy_nallely

You’re emotional and intuitive, Cancer. People know you for having a complicated personality. Which is why, in another life, you were most likely the Elmo Vine. Chances are, if we caught you on a good day, we’d see you also dressed in an Elmo costume and standing in the snow, suffering an existential crisis.

Instagram: @hypedslaves

Vine

[SONG PLAYS] “La la la la, la la la la, Elmo’s- hello darkness my old friend.”

*Elmo stands lifelessly in the snow as cars drive past*

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @trendy.dreamstienda

To be frank, Leo, with your air of royalty and love of the spotlight, it’s obvious which Vine you are. Remember when Donald Trump followed Hillary Clinton around the stage during the 2016 presidential campaign debates? Put a Jaws theme behind it, and you’ve got your Vine. Sorry not sorry, but you’re definitely Trump in this scenario.

Instagram: @hvcillustration

Vine

*Theme from Jaws plays*

*Trump looms behind Clinton as she speaks on stage*

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @thatinava_dc

Are you sure you’ve never starred in a Vine before, Virgo? It looks like you’ve got a dopplegänger in the Vine with the mom who dramatically tried to turn off a stereo playing rap music. Even though you’re capable and well-spoken, that doesn’t mean that everything in this world is as refined as you are. Which is why you sometimes have very limited patience, just like this strict mom.

Instagram: @rrivera0875

Vine

*Mom slowly moves towards a stereo playing loud rap music*

MOM: No. NO. NO. TURN THAT OFF. NOO!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @guaraguaopr

Libra, as a rule, you are kind and gentle, and a lover of beauty, harmony, and peace. Which is why you definitely identify with the contestant who got shredded by Gordon Ramsay on national television. You find it hella difficult to turn people down, so you can get pretty stressed over being rejected yourself. Let’s hope you’re in Gordon Ramsay’s shoes in the future.

Instagram: @dailydoseofgordanramsay

Vine

GORDON RAMSAY: Congratulations-

CONTESTANT: THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUU!

GORDON RAMSAY: -on the worst dish in this competition so far.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @maryori291

You can be a bit of a mystery at the best of times, Scorpio. If there’s anything anyone knows about you, it’s that when you’re given the chance, you don’t hold back on the insults. You’re a bit more than a little sex-obsessed, which is why you could be either Amanda or her friend in the Vine about Amanda riding horses. At the end of the day, if you’re not getting laid, then you’d like to think you can at least dish some savage one-liners.

Instagram: @pferdenutellaa

Vine

FRIEND: “My name’s Amanda and I ride horses because I can’t ride d*ck.”

AMANDA: *shocked face*

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @chocolate_and_planes

Sagittarius, you’re a curious and energetic sort. Everyone knows you’re the happy-go-lucky, fun-loving type. Which means that once you’ve had a few drinks, you’d take every single, stupid suggestion very seriously. After all, you’ve got to live up to your reputation as an extrovert. And naturally, you’d end up belly-flopping off the top of a wardrobe onto a tabletop, just like the Vine with the frat guy who, well, belly-flops off the top of a wardrobe onto a tabletop.

Instagram: @fitboylars

Vine

FRIEND: “One.”

GUY: *jumps off wardrobe, breaks table, destroys at least twenty drinks*

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @the_loveli_coco

The traits that define a Capricorn are ambition, conservativeness, determination, practicality, and helpfulness. Which is why a lot of people see you as the tedious office job type, content with spending your days in a tiny cubicle and battling your way through workplace politics. Life’s not all about that for you, Capricorn. Sometimes you’re like el chico sharing wisdom in the Vine about Mondays.

Instagram: @nutrininjabullet

Vine

“Life is like – you ever get that one feeling where you wanna die, you feel like it’s Monday.”

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @lcnba_fashion

Aquarius, you’re intelligent and can be outspoken and opinionated. You’ve got the brainpower to think in the abstract and about practical things. Have you ever seen the Vine about Arkansas? Because that’s pretty much you. Wait, scratch the pretty much. It IS you.

Instagram: @amylattacreations

Vine

NARRATOR: “So I am confusion. Why is this one Kansas, but this one is not Ar-Kansas. America explain! Explain what you mean! ARK-AN-SAW!”

NARRATOR: *gestures angrily at a map of the U.S.*

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @kga.soto

If anyone was to choose a single word that sums you up, Pisces, it would be soulful. You’re one of those empathetic, intuitive, and artistic types. You experience emotions deeply. If a Vine could be a spirit animal, then yours would be the Vine featuring a dog staring at a toy trapped under a couch. And really, you don’t have to see the Vine know what we’re talking about, do you? You can probably feel the dog’s loss right now.

Instagram: @puppy_unity

Vine

[SONG PLAYS] “Everybody hurrrrrrts, sometimes.”

*dog paws desperately at toy under the couch*

This Hilarious Viral Video is Being Called the Latino Version of ‘Get Out’

Screenshot via xgabsterz/Twitter

We’ve all experienced it before–the nervousness of meeting your partner’s parents. And if you’re in an interracial relationship, that nervousness grows exponentially.

That’s why this video of a young Latino man who is hesitant about entering his white girlfriend’s Trump-supporting family’s house has gone viral.

It’s #relatable.

The video starts off with the unnamed boyfriend narrating what’s happening to him as his girlfriend practically drags him into her parent’s home.

In Spanish, he says “I’m going to visit my girlfriend’s parent’s house. The house is very beautiful and she wants me to go inside. But I’m not going to do that because there’s a problem.”

At this point, he pans up to focus on a “Trump” sign prominently displayed on the front lawn.

He turns the camera around to show his own very worried face. The young man’s girlfriend tries to assure him that everything is okay, promising him that her parents are “going to like you”.

The young man tells her to go on without him because he “doesn’t want to die” today. “Maybe tomorrow, yes. But today–no,” he says.

His girlfriend keeps insisting he follow her in until he finally says: “They don’t like me!” before zooming in on the “Trump/Pence” sign one final time. The comedic timing is *chef’s kiss* impeccable.

The video is captioned “This Spanish remake of ‘Get Out’–a witty nod to the 2017 horror film.

As a refresher, “Get Out” centers on a young Black man in an interracial relationship who visits his white girlfriend’s family for the weekend. Soon, he realizes the family is not quite as idyllic as they’re pretending to be. Before long, he realizes his life is in danger.

The movie accurately depicted the real-life horror of racism and white supremacy through a cinematic lens. Phrases like “the sunken place” (the place the main character went when he’s paralyzed by his girlfriend’s mother) became cultural shorthand for: the “place an oppressed person goes when they have become silent or compliant to their own oppression” (thanks Urban Dictionary).

Internet commentators chimed in with their own thoughts and opinions about the super relatable video.

One Reddit user knew exactly how the young man felt. “As a biracial person who dated a girl from a very conservative Republican family, they never let me forget that I was biracial,” he said. “They brought it up almost every day.”

Another knew the struggles of having family members with different views from their own: “I have friends and family members that have been radicalized.. it’s very difficult to have a conversation about anything anymore that doesn’t end with vitriol.”

Another Reddit user had more sympathy for the man’s girlfriend. “I feel bad for the girl honestly,” they said. “We may be able to choose who we befriend, but we can never choose our parents.”

‘Size Fits All Tags’ And ‘Great Clickbait’— People Name The Worst Things That Are Legal

‘Size Fits All Tags’ And ‘Great Clickbait’— People Name The Worst Things That Are Legal

The world is plagued with some crazy and unfair laws, no doubt about it. But what about the things that exist and legal? Why are, for instance, spam callers allowed to trick you by calling from similar numbers to yours? Or, why is it impossible to criminally convict your roommate from keeping you up all night or dipping into your ice-cream and lie about it?

Users on Reddit are asking similar questions and the answers are pretty hilarious but also intriguing.

“I’m just gonna have to say little girl’s beauty pageants. It just doesnt sit right with me. And not only because of the fact it’s creepy, but I feel like it’s stressful on the kid and on their body image.” –kitty-cult

“College book prices and practices. Change a few words in a math book, that’ll be another $100 please. Oh you realized that you can use the book from 10 years ago and succeed? Actually we require you get the new book. Oh you realized you can get the book cheaper from a friend? Actually we’re doing online books now and you need the personalized code. We change it every year even though there have been no breakthroughs in this subject! Knowing the college struggle i have no fucking clue how this is allowed to exist. It should literally be illegal.” –WitlessMean

“Puppy mills.” –thechronicwinter

“Sending letters to home owners labeled ‘IMPORTANT MORTGAGE / FINANCIAL INFO’ or ‘LAST WARNING / NOTICE’ and having the inside look exactly like a bill, letterhead and little box in the corner with figures inside… all to then say ‘refinance with us’ or ‘don’t miss this opportunity for etc etc’ Makes me heart skip every time thinking I’ve forgotten some critical bill until I open it.”- IDUU

“The fact car radio commercials are allowed to have police sirens or car crashes in them as a way to Get your attention.”- jagfanjosh3252

“Spice/K2/Synthetic Weed. This may have changed in the last few years but I found it embarrassing that our country locks up thousands for actual marijuana but allowed that shit to be sold at every gas station and liquor store knowing damn good and well that it was hurting and killing people.”-m0ndayisb0ng0day

“You can look up where any one lives because it’s public record. But can we please not have entire websites with data bases full of every person in the country?? I mean think about people who get denied restraining orders and try to move away from their abuser. Six months later and their abuser can just look up their name and find them all over again. This could be detrimental for spouse abuse victims, stalking victims, etc. something should be done about them. It’s terrifying.” –21DrunkPilots

“Lying through your teeth on “news” shows because you claim you’re actually “entertainment”. Even while it has “news” in the title of the station. Being able to lie through your teeth on an opinion show just bc it’s an opinion show. Opinions should be opinions about facts. Opinion should not be an excuse for slander or making knowingly false statements in the media.” –jseego

“Sweatshop labor outsourced by tech and Fortune 500 companies. It’s essentially contemporary slavery we collectively allow.”- crumpledForeskin

“Being penalized for calling out sick from work. Edit. Even while the whole world is trying to survive this pandemic, we’re still dealing with this major issue by employers. I work in health care, and I feel like I get shamed by my managers and coworkers when you call out. Especially when you work night shift.” –pongomer

“I (f) bought a car recently. During the process of negotiation I decided I wanted to do more research and the salesman refused to give me the keys to MY car so I could leave. Literally saw me looking for my keys and withheld them while repeatedly saying, ‘But what could I do to get you into this car today?’ I finally demanded my keys but bought the car anyway (they met my asking price and got me the financing I wanted) but I’m SO mad at myself for not making a scene. For allowing that man to hold me hostage and not being outraged. I don’t understand why I didn’t humiliate him and instead meekly just sat and took it. I called the manager the next day. But still. So disappointed in myself…” – UncomonShaman
