Nothing interesting on the internet this week, if you're not bent on elevating "Lemonade" to the status of Beethoven's 9th. . BuzzFeed, usually a dependable source of drivel and tripe, was reduced to "What Type Of Grilled Cheese Are You?" - the answer to which should be "the dead kind" in every example, because you could not survive the agonizing process of melting and grilling.
