In the midst of Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg taking his 2020 break from YouTube, the Swede’s subreddit has hilariously descended into chaos. From cooking to gardening memes, the community is a little bit lost without their king.

In December 2019, the popular YouTuber announced he would be taking a short break from creating content in 2020, stating he was “tired.” While the Swedish personality is recouping, his forum over on Reddit has found interesting ways to pass the time.


PewDiePie’s signature show Last Week I Asked You had him reacting to memes posted on his subreddit. But now r/PewdiepieSubmissions has been overtaken by bizarre-themed memes as they use humor to soften the blow of their favorite creator’s absence.

PewDiePie’s subreddit goes awry

Feeling the withdrawal of the absence of Pewds’ YouTube content, his subreddit has found hilarious ways to pass the time. While the forum has usually been a place for his fans to post the top memes for him to react to, now it’s become a tug of war between varied themes.


The Reddit community first began posting about cooking – because why not? A flood of submissions began revolving around the culinary arts, which user ‘Potatochu_OwO’ captured with a Danny Devito meme.

A Reddit user joked about the subreddit becoming dedicated to cooking memes.

The Swede’s fans responded to the post, and exclaimed that his break has felt much longer than it’s actually been. User ‘VirtualNK’ stated in shock, “It’s only been 14 days? Felt like 2 months,” to which ‘Gnostic28’ replied, “How much longer must we wait?”

Other users posted actual pictures of food they had created such as ‘Peto6421’s stellar brofist cake.

Some fans even uploaded food that they had actually cooked.

The mods seem on board with the movement, even declaring on January 31, “With 2.5 MILLION subscribers, r/Pewdiepiesubmissions is the LARGEST cooking subreddit! Congratulations! (next week we’re turning into a gardening subreddit, stay tuned).”

The subreddit’s mods are on board with the weekly themes.

Like the tides of the ocean, soon the forum washed away their love for cooking, and have set their sights on their next obsession – gardening. Sticking to the newly ordained theme, ‘ChisTurtle’ posted a hilarious photoshop of Felix riding a John Deer tractor.

PewdiepieSubmissions ushered in their new obsession with gardening.

One of the posts was even directed at the YouTuber, and admitted that he must be confused when reading their garden style posts. “Felix is probably checking the subreddit [right now] and he is confused,” it read.

PewDiePie is probably really confused by what is going on.

The Swedish YouTube star amassed over 103 million followers on the platform, making him the largest individual content creator.

Only time will tell when PewDiePie will be making his glorious return. However, his short absence is clearly missed if fan reaction on his subreddit is any indication.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.


However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.


“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
