It's rare to get a front row seat to a friendship like that of Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy and Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon. The two athletes have bonded over being some of the few out athletes in their sports. So when Gus makes a dirty joke to Adam, the whole world gets in on it.

Kenworthy quote tweeted a headline from NBC Sports reading "Jason Brown tops Nathan Chen in Internationaux de France short program."

Tagging Rippon, Kenworthy commented:

"omg @adaripp you retired before all the fun stuff started happening"



Fans were losing it over the joke.








It got even better when Rippon responded.






Kenworthy and Rippon became friends a few months before the qualifiers for the 2018 Winter Olympics. They bonded over their shared positions in a very publicly scrutinized industry. By the time they got to the Olympics, they were best friends. The two made waves at the event, Kenworthy for sharing a kiss with his boyfriend, Matt Wilkas, on live broadcast, and Rippon for calling out the Vice President for his views on gay people.

Their friendship has had a very solid foundation, making fans ecstatic at their interactions.









This isn't the first time the two have made Twitter roll with laughter. For Halloween, Kenworthy replicated the legendary leather harness outfit Rippon wore to the Oscars and tweeted "Adam Ripoff." Rippon's response had fans in stitches.

Could it be the twinkle in their eye as they talk about their passions? Or perhaps its their overwhelming sense of humor that draws in everyone in the room?

Whatever it might be, everyone has that one trait, that one quality, that can make them instantly interesting to someone listening nearby.

Turns out not all of us are interested in being benevolent Gods.

It's Reddit, so we're not exactly surprised, but we're suddenly glad divine cosmic powers don't work this way.

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Either way, it just doesn't seem that long ago and the nostalgia for the trappings of the 1990s is strong.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.
