The Dallas Runaway Cart GIF
"This GIF has so many characters and subplots, it's like a Shakespearean tragedy"
Indeed. It even has its own oral history article, which contains this amazing quote:
I was hurt probably more than I’d ever been hurt before. But honestly, it was hilarious. I laughed like crazy for about 15 minutes the first time I watched that video, and for the next three or four months I’d just pull that video up and laugh. I was like, man, that cart didn’t have nobody on it, and I wondered if it was Bugs Bunny was driving it or something. There was just something hilarious about that video. I mean, nobody was even driving it!

Donald Trump inauguration: Scottish newspaper previews ceremony as Twilight Zone episode
The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president. It sounds far-fetched, and it is is, but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible.
How Jokes Won the Election
Great Emily Nussbaum thinkpiece (thanks, y). That Triumph election special where he called Trump a shock comic was prescient.
