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.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
