26 of the Funniest Burns from the Week of January 22, 2024
There’s no denying that Coachella is the granddaddy of all modern music festivals. The genre-blending gathering lasts for an entire weekend out in the middle of the California desert and sets the literal stage for iconic performances from musical powerhouses like Daft Punk, Prince and Rage Against the Machine.
But lately, Coachella has catered to a younger generation with their campgrounds serving as a sponsored-content funhouse for social media influencers — and it’s starting to show. For years, getting tickets to the festival was nothing short of something out of the Hunger Games, requiring hopefuls to jump through numerous hoops in order to secure passes before they sold out. But for the first time in decades, tickets for the festival’s first weekend are still up for grabs after going on sale late last week. It seems that not even a No Doubt reunion can bring people to care about Coachella these days. One Twitter user pointed out that even the logo looks tired.
Luckily for its sake, the once-great festival didn’t bear the brunt of the timeline’s harsh words alone this week. Other quality burns over the last seven days include those about someone trying to enjoy their lunch in peace, an influencer of biblical proportions and an ode to the New York Mets.
