Even though we desperately want to stay away from bad news, we also need the internet more than ever. Luckily, there is more to social media than "we're all gonna die" or "this is all a hoax" posts, and North Texans had some particularly uplifting, funny and clever things to post this past week. Here are some of the best.


The city of Dallas shared some sound parenting advice by the Omni Hotel.

A dedicated elementary school teacher from Mesquite drove by her students' homes to let them know (from a safe distance) how much she missed them. The kids' faces are priceless.

Mollie with the entrepreneurial spirit. Try Louis C.K.?

And they say The Simpsons predicts the future.

Here's a fun game. Guess the local bands based on the emoji and leave us your own in the comments. We could do this all day. Literally. Sob.

This is the time when you'll learn some really weird shit about your friends. Update: Chris is not going to try bananas. No word on his potassium levels.

Do we wanna know what this means? Yeah, we do.

Yeah, Charlie Brooker. Reality is kicking last season's ass.


Will, the son of former Dallas Cowboys punter Mat McBriar, must be a really good kid. Friends and neighbors drove by his house in San Diego to wish him a happy seventh birthday. Also, that doughnut cake.

As it turns out, it's not only toilet paper companies that are making money during this time.


And, finally, some Lakewood neighbors (who are, hopefully, psychic) with a nice message for the world at large.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
