Today brings some of the most exciting Facebook news we’ve seen in a while. It’s hard to believe Mark Zuckerberg never let us post them until now, but social media’s Big Brother finally supports GIFs. Wahoo. Our Facebook wall posts are about to get a whole lot funnier. To get things started, here are 9 Facebook GIFs, plus the Agent Cooper “Thumbs Up,” you can finally post.
When you’re complaining about your latest Tinder date:
When your racist uncle posts a rant on your wall:
When your ex is “In a Relationship”:
When you want to post a vague emo status about all your feelings:
When everything’s coming up Milhouse:
When you surpass 1,000 Facebook friends:
When you get a chemical peel:
When everybody loves your new profile pic:
When you realize that you can’t upload GIFs to Facebook, just play them inline with a link:
Hey gang, I really love your Parks and Rec subtitle GIF photoset on your Tumblrs, and, man, that scene from Community was sooooo funny and all, but until you start GOING INTO FUCKING OUTER SPACE, I think we could all use a break from your guerilla marketing campaign for poorly rated NBC sitcoms. Oh, what’s that? A GIF of Honey Boo Boo drinking juice? Yeah, well, here’s an animated GIF of The Pelican Nebula, so, you know, shut up about your looping silent video of a clip from a reality TV show, OK?

You may have noticed that there are a lot of Tumblrs out there with the exact same concept. Each starts with a notion that the blog will be about something specific—say, working in the publishing industry, or as a stripper. The posts themselves then describe common events in that line of work—say, "When a book becomes a bestseller," or, "When a customer tips with a two-dollar bill." These little conditionals are then supplemented with the same tired-ass GIFs we’ve been looking at for years now, as if they are any sort of punchline. So to save you some time, here are all of those blogs condensed.
