Welcome again to my weekly desi take on the top news this week.

Yes, people say stupid stuff, and some go ahead and DO even more ire inviting stuff. My goal is to be unbiased to their degree of stupidness and bring to you the top 3 mentions of the week that can induce a migraine even in the most patient of us.

But playing by the Silver Linings Playbook, I want to keep my karma in check, and also not bog you down with all that was wrong this week, so as a treat, here’s also the top 3 things of this week that made social browsing worth the cringe.
