I said what?

01 Jul 11

Thanks to the society we live in today, where sending a text message is a perfectly acceptable alternative to talking in person or even calling someone, we have archives full of the smart, thoughtful and meaningful things we all say on a daily basis... in addition to all of the stupid things!
Textsfromlastnight.com is a website that pays homage to these moments, collecting the best of the worst for your entertainment. Here are a few of our favourites:


  • (412): Someone flushed pizza down the toilet. Well... at least tried to.

  • (650): I have discovered something important. The trick to making food taste better is not always ‘more hot sauce’.

  • (305): You came into my room at 3am.. drunk.. and asked to do spanish homework together. Props for being a good student.

  • (315): There was a suspicious looking plate that suggests I may have eaten salad with gravy

  • (608): I am watching the CFL at a Hooters in Texarakana. I made a poor life choice at some point that led me here.


Check out textsfromlastnight.com for more mind-bogglingly stupid (but highly amusing) texts.
