If there's one thing fans of 'Glee' love discussing, it's the absolute absurdity of the show. A viral thread on Twitter is bringing out some of the best memories of the Fox musical dramedy.

Twitter user @alisonluffs asked about everyone's favorite terrible plotlines from the show. It was such a popular question, that the original tweet has nearly 2000 replies of people reminiscing about the strange plot points.



Glee was a hit when it premiered in 2009. The show focused on the show choir or 'glee club' for a fictional high school in Lima, Ohio. It saw the ragtag group of performers dealing with challenges to their singing performances, like the antagonistic cheerleading coach, Sue Sylvester or rival clubs, while also handling plotlines dealing with teen relationships and social issues.

It was also completely crazy.









The show had a lot less in common with drama/comedies of the time, and more with soap operas and telenovelas. It seemed the show reveled in picking some of the strangest choices for their plotlines. It is this exact mentality that made people love the strange show.

Season 4 tried to shuffle the formula, having many characters graduate, and bringing a fresh batch of new performers. The show split its time between this new glee club, and old characters moving on to New York City to pursue their Broadway dreams.

Which only opened the door to more madness.







The show tried to handle difficult topics, with varying degrees of success. A sensitive topic like a male character being molested as a child is fairly easily brushed off because the abuser was an attractive woman, while earlier seasons treat being hit with a slushie as the ultimate dishonor. The show was a huge, problematic mess, that still seems to elicit a certain fondness.

There was a lot to relate to.







The show ended in 2015, amid declining viewership, controversy surrounding these precise plotlines, and most heartbreaking of all, the real life overdose of Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the show. While we may never get new episodes about our favorite show choir, this thread shows we won't forget the insane memories.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
