Shirley Temples are the "We're getting crazy tonight!" drink of our youths.

With an overload of sugar and containing several pungent flavors as well as a neon red hue, we knew our night was about to go down with a Shirley Temple.

If only we'd had a service to rate our Shirley Temples back in the day....


Thankfully kids of today will be afforded that service and will never know the same hardship we did.

Meet six-year-old Kelly from Connecticut—your Shirley Temple King.

Kelly, besides being adorable, is a tough Shirley Temple critic.

His criteria include grenadine to ginger ale ratios and the amount of present maraschino cherries.

Each video is tagged with a number of cherries that rates the Shirley Temple out of ten.

Kelly's instagram picked up steam after a tweet featuring his review of a Shirley Temple at Longhorn Steakhouse went viral.

How could people not immediately start adoring this Shirley Temple treasure?



Longhorn Steakhouse scored poorly due to their lack of cherries.

But promised to make it up to the Shirley Temple King.

Whilst people continued to become fans of Kelly.





Kelly is most certainly not easily impressed.

The highest rated Shirley Temple on his channel was the one he made himself.

Take note purveyors of Shirley Temples!





According to the king, the ideal Shirley Temple contains "three to four ice cubes, glass cup, a whole can of ginger ale, just enough grenadine, three cherries and an extra-long straw."

After receiving over 123K followers in under 24 hours, he was blown away.

"Epic reviews to come," promises the King.

We are all sitting by our computers waiting.

Kids start going to school from the age of five, and for the most part, they spend more time at school than at home. Because of that, teachers can become very important figures in the lives of their students.

Some students don't have the best home lives. Some keep it to themselves, but others confide in their teachers.

Curious about various situations, Redditor Delicious_Mastodon83 asked:

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
