Even the commander-in-chief has time for a little fun.
Running the world's most powerful country is a serious job. But, every once in a while, a U.S. president manages to crack a halfway-decent joke. BuzzFeed News combed through thousands of presidential news-conference transcripts in search of these diamonds in the rough. Can you guess who told the jokes below?
Kill it with fire! (a moment later) Okay, so in hindsight maybe that wasn’t the best idea…
Set a zombie on fire.
Yes, being chased by zombies sucks. Why make it WORSE for yourself and stupidly decide to set one of them on fire? There's nothing more horrible than running from zombies who are also walking torches. Let's just put the flamethrower away, okay?

Rely on a gun as your only weapon.
You're going to make a hell of a lot of noise shooting down every zombie that comes in front of you. Plus what if you've never fired a gun before? You're going to run out of bullets either way and then what will you do? Go back to the gun store that's surrounded by zombies to get more ammunition? It's always better to find quieter weapons that are also more efficient, like a samurai sword.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a coupled man in want of more ass, should never forget that he had given her an extra key.

Apparently, you stop writing “love” and start writing “ok” a lot more often.
Alice Zhao is the data scientist and blogger behind this texting project. Zhao analyzed texts from the first year she started dating her now-husband and texts from this year.
"On our one year anniversary, his gift to me was a Word doc of all of our text messages since our first date," she wrote. "What I considered to be the most thoughtful gift ever (given that we are both nerds).
Zhao wanted to see what exactly changed after six years of being together. Right off the bat Zhao noticed that she doesn't greet her husband anymore and instead just agrees with him.
She also poured through the texts looking for individual phrases and the frequency of certain words. "Love" has decreased in frequency, but the words "home" and "dinner" have stayed pretty consistent.

Pro tip: Always ask what’s in the chili.
Last week, a man eating at Golden Corral in Cape Coral, Florida, allegedly got a surprise in his chili when he bit into a rodent's head.
Billy Wilson told WFTX TV that he usually dines at the restaurant once a week, but won't be anymore.
"The first bite I took out of it was a crunch, and at the time, I was like maybe, you know, sometimes you get a hard bean inside of chili," Wilson said to the station.
The 36-year-old claims he immediately spat out an intact gray rodent's head with a snaggletooth.
"When I seen it, I just went into the bathroom and threw up," Wilson said. "Ugh, I just couldn't get the taste out of my mouth."
OK, the wedding was staged for a photoshoot, but it’s still insanely precious.

"The episode when the characters of Ben and Leslie went to Paris, I realized I was looking at one of my favorite couples on TV and in retrospect, how real they were to most of the characters that are out there," she said. "Plus, the show is filled with SO many great nuggets, from the food references and one-liners, that I knew there would be a plethora of substance to pull from."
These people saw an opportunity and they took it.

On Tuesday, a Reddit user named Deric Peace revealed that he loads up his refrigerator's ice tray with candy.
Yes, you heard that correctly. In the place where ice should be, instead there is candy.
It caused such a stir online that Peace decided to film a video of his insane candy fridge.
