Existential Popsicle GIFs Melt to Reveal Depressing Jokes, Will Ruin Your Childhood

1

Remember those great popsicles you’d eat in the summer that you’d eagerly lick away to find the answer to the riddle printed on the stick? Yeah? Well get ready to have your childhood ruined thanks to these cold-hearted popsicle sticks.

“Schadenfreezers” are existential popsicle GIFS created by Jason Kreher and Matt More of Portland, Oregon. These pieces of  “strawberry, blueberry, and lemon-flavored joy” (hint: lies) are derived from the darkest, most melancholy humor. In other words, they’re hilarious and will destroy any sense of happiness you’ve ever associated with frozen treats.

Think depressing punch lines, the kind of awful that makes you chuckle while breaking into sobs like a tiny child who just figured out Santa is really just a greasy old man trying to convince kids to sit on his lap.
