16 People Who Definitely Earned Themselves A Gold Star

Diply 13 Apr 2018

Back in school, you could often tell the teachers you were gonna like from the ones you weren't based on whether or not they gave you gold stars.

I kinda forgot how much that meant at the time until I had an editor who actually did that and it made me just as excited as it did 15 years ago.

So I'm gonna spread the love and hand out some gold stars of my own.

Congratulations to these folks!

1. If that kid is as good at physics as he is at getting around school rules, we'll have flying cars in no time.

I also love the irony of using a copy of The College Dropout to help you focus during an exam.

2. OK, I know this seems like total nonsense, but that jacket tells me mama was just trying to keep the milk cold.

And really, if somebody rolled up and drank this milk, that's kind of a problem with them, not her.

3. Yup, this policy seems pretty reasonable to me.

And I think it's a safe bet that they added that second part in after someone tried to say they were false advertising for not rubbing their belly.

Being a barista is rough enough without that level of service, folks.

4. Haha, I guess there's no better way to show you're handling this as a team then pretending to be one amorphous mass.

While we're at it, let's give me a gold star for thinking of the only context where the words "amorphous mass" can be cute.

5. Aww, I think you'd pretty much need a heart of stone to groan and get mad at this pun.

Hopefully, there's enough left over after all the crazy medical bills for a nice big tip because this is some legendary service.

6. Homer may not be all that happy to be a Pikachu, but all I know is that I need these socks now. 

Reddit | DR--DOOM

I know Pikachu moves around a lot more than Homer would like, but I seem to recall he ate just as much.

So there's that?

7. I don't know much about this man, but everything about this tells me he thinks life is good.

To be this satisfied as long as you've got your giant sword and your pocket pupper is to have life figured out.

Teach me your ways, sir.

8. I'm proud to see these kids dare to dream the same dream I had as a kid.

Reddit | skezixx

I always thought I didn't have enough money to make this happen, but I never realized I could just split the cost with about 20 friends.

What a missed opportunity.

9. Wow, I always just used this as a excuse to not put anything away. I didn't know some people were actually telling the truth when they say this.

In my defense, my room was actually messy, while he just remembers literally every detail about his.

I'm not jealous...

10. I can imagine the sense of accomplishment this dude will feel when the dog enters the house without even trying to shake itself dry.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

I just hope the dog returns the favor by not stealing his pants when they're drying on the radiator.

11. Aww, I'm not sure what I like better, the idea of him seriously caring for these flowers, or him doing it because his mom told him to.

Reddit | KBlake1982

If it's the second one, I'll give him a black pentagram instead of a gold star for shedding his brutal image long enough to help her.

12. Haha, I realize I may be more apt to celebrate lame puns than some of you, but I don't care. I love this.

It's got a baby, it's got a board, they're both somehow staying on the car. What more do you need?

13. Seeing R2D2 with legs weirds me out, but I still appreciate that somebody out here is giving the people what they want.

Reddit | ktoragodzina

Plus, the idea that Spider-Man's mom also had powers goes a long way to explain why radioactive spider bites don't work in real life.

14. That Yoda chain had a good run, but I think it's safe to say that this guy's neck has a new king. 

Instagram | @tank.sinatra

Hmm, would it make the fans happier or even angrier if he was in the next Star Wars movie?

15. I probably shouldn't be encouraging cheating like this, but I'm not going to pretend there isn't a lot of cleverness and effort at play here.

Instagram | @kalesalad

Still, all that hard work will be for nothing if they forget to subtly cover it when the prof walks by.

16. All I know is that this dude must be pretty charismatic for her not to see this giant picture of herself and not immediately call security over. 

Instagram | @streetcatto

I don't know who started making full-face shirts like this, but they're responsible for a lot of bad dreams.
