Bravo to our two newest friends, White Llama and Black Llama, for managing to break the Internet almost singlehandedly (you know, if llamas had hands) in the span of half an hour while evading police. The Internet-famous duo united the world during that glorious period, and their evasion techniques inspired us to be better people. We loved the llama drama.

Boo to Lupita Nyong'o's Oscars dress being stolen from her hotel room. The white dress made by Francisco Costa was worth $150,000 and was adorned with 6,000 white pearls.

Bravo to the Federal Communications Commission for voting to uphold net neutrality. This ensures that Internet service providers cannot discriminate against content.

Boo-ravo to Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas and Gov. Doug Ducey, who may finally start playing nice now that the Arizona Legislature clarified who can fire people on the state’s Board of Education. This amendment has been added to HB2184, which defines Arizona statutes relating to the Arizona Board of Education. Looks like we can put that feud between our dear governor and superintendent behind us ... for now.

Bravo to Wednesday's protests against Gov. Doug Ducey's proposed cuts to education. Teacher and parents marched around the state Capitol chanting, "No ifs, ands or buts — no more budget cuts!"

Boo to the situation resulting in Baylor running back Silas Nacita no longer being a part of the program. Nacita, who was homeless, said he was ruled ineligible because he stayed at the home of a family friend. The NCAA countered and said it did not declare Nacita ineligible, with Baylor not submitting a waiver.

Bravo to the legalization of marijuana in Washington, D.C., and Alaska. The U.S. is now one step closer to having a society of "higher" intelligence.

Boo-ravo to the Zendaya scandal on E! News. On air E! personality Giuliana Rancic said she suspected Zendaya smelled like "weed" and "patchouli" oil after the singer debuted a new dreadlock look on the Oscars red carpet. While Rancic apologized for her offensive comments, Zendaya posted a perfect response on her Instagram, saying that she was glad it was a "learning experience" for the host and entertainment network.

Boo to the U.S.S. Gabrielle Giffords, the U.S. Navy littoral combat ship that hit the water today. It’s frankly ridiculous that the name of a victim of gun violence be attached to a war machine capable of leveling some small countries.
