For those feeling a little down about the world in light of recent events, don’t worry; the Internet is here for you this week, offering one of your favorite actors being mean about a politician, a heckler who defined the attitude of a nation (if not more than one nation), and the birth of a new baby boy whose name brought light to so many. It’s one Hanukkah miracle after another in this week’s round-up of things that might’ve slipped past you during the last seven days on the world wide web.

Just Imagine Barbara Bush Doing This (No, Really)

What Happened: Twitter decides to suggest some potential lyrics for Michelle Obama’s rap career.

Where It Blew Up: Twitter

What Really Happened: Michelle Obama continued to win the hearts and minds of the Internet this week with the release of a new video (above) in which she promoted college education through the medium of rap music.

Of course, just one track wasn’t enough for Twitter, which immediately created a hashtag—#FlotusBars—to offer some more potential rhymes for future releases. Rhymes, in fact, like these:

The Takeaway: But what does the President make of all this?

You Ain’t No Internet Meme, Bruv

What Happened: An onlooker’s vocal response to an attempted terrorist attack in London, England went viral.

Where It Blew Up: Twitter, blogs, media think pieces

What Really Happened: As police captured a knife attacker in an East London tube station last week, an onlooker yelled out a phrase intended as a response to the attacker’s claim that he was fighting “for Syria and my brothers in Syria,” not knowing that his spontaneous five-word outburst was about to travel all around the world and become adopted by all manner of people. “You ain’t no Muslim, bruv,” he said. A meme was born.

Almost immediately, the phrase became a thing on Twitter:

As the phrase started to spread around the world, it was even adopted by the British Prime Minister, suggested as the official response to all terrorist attacks by those claiming to act in favor of Syria, and even used as the basis for a riposte to the increasingly troublesome opinions of Donald Trump by no less than the New York Times. Pretty good for a heckle.

The Takeaway: As much as it’s heartening to see official organizations and public officials take stances against Islamophobia and bigotry, there’s something especially wonderful about watching this become so popular. Perhaps we’re not all wretched bags of meat and hatred after all…

Unrequited Fandom

What Happened: Someone told Harrison Ford that Donald Trump was a fan. It didn’t go well.

Where It Blew Up: Twitter, blogs, media think pieces

What Really Happened: In a recent interview on Australian television, Harrison Ford was told that Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump had said that he was a huge fan of Ford’s, and especially of Ford’s 1990s thriller Air Force One, where Ford played a US president who kicked terrorist ass personally. His response was so popular, the show shared it on Twitter:

Turns out, it wasn’t only Australians who enjoyed it.

It was the shade seen around the world, combining two current obsessions of the Internet: Star Wars and Donald Trump. Really, who could resist? The only thing that would’ve combined the two better would’ve been a video where Darth Vader was actually Donald Trump, Oh, wait, that exists:

The Takeaway: The Force is strong in this one.

Saints Above

What Happened: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s son got a name. The Internet, of course, had opinions.

Where It Blew Up: Twitter, media think pieces

What Really Happened: It should surprise no one that Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter—and also emoji—to introduce the world to her second child with Kanye earlier this week:

It should also surprise no one that Twitter was prepared with the hot takes in response.

It wasn’t just Twitter that weighed in; besides basic reports about the birth (and the name), we were told that his birth wouldn’t be shown on TV, that he has a big wardrobe already, and even that some expect him to perform impossible miracles, based on the name alone.

The weirdest and most enjoyable thing about the entire furore? The short-lived fame of a Los Angeles teen who predicted the name back in the summer:

The Takeaway: Sadly, it’s still ongoing, with news reports about how to pronounce the name and what Kim tweeted next still rolling out. Welcome to the world, Saint. It’s going to be a very, very strange experience for you, indeed.

Welcome Back, Mail Keemp

What Happened: Serial returned, without any warning. Unleash the responses!

Where It Blew Up: Twitter, media think pieces

What Really Happened: It’s not just music stars that can drop new releases and destroy the Internet with no warning; the return of the This American Life spin-off podcast Serial on Thursday ruined people’s productivity for the day, and set the Internet aflame with both excitement and snark.

The choice of story of the show’s second season, the already familiar case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a US soldier who abandoned his post in 2009 only to be captured by the Taliban, also amped up the impact of the show’s return by making the cottage industry of explaining and discussing each episode that much easier. Other people have already done research on this one!

The Takeaway: On the basis of the first episode, Serial might have jumped a shark or two—calling the Taliban? Really?—but give it another couple of weeks, and we’ll all be as glued to it as we were in the past, let’s be honest.
