Cause it wasn't ALL bad ...

Needless to say 2016 -- you were supposed to be our love child, but you came out a hate filled "Rosemary's Baby," and frankly we're all still trying to catch our breath...We started out this year as we always do, filled with hope and expectation. This year was going to be the one, but then you released the hounds:

  • Every celebrity that we have ever truly loved passed away.

  • We were all forced to bite and claw our way through an endless bitter campaign season.

  • Cell phones randomly started exploding in our hands ...

I could go on but this isn't that kind of list. Basically, you get the point. You were pure madness.

However, we've almost made it through and it's time to channel our inner Pollyanna's and remember the good things.

Victor Hugo said: -- "Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters." Maybe 2016 was a secret blessing in disguise? What if 2016 made women out of us girls, girls who would have otherwise ended up ignorant twat monsters?

So here's to you 2016, you sucked, but Leo did FINALLY win an Oscar, we got to bury our fears inside a new Harry Potter book and you probably saved us from our otherwise blissful twat-tudinal purgatory.

Basically, like most sordid love affairs - - 2016, you weren't all bad baby.
