Streamer starts broadcasting moments after her wisdom teeth operation

A Twitch streamer decided to start broadcasting just after she had her wisdom teeth removed and was so confused she didn’t even remember starting the stream.

Lexi Hargis, one half of the duo that runs the Twitch channel LEXnJOC, went in to have her wisdom teeth taken care of on February 3 and decided to catch up with viewers on stream almost immediately after the surgery.

The painkillers and anesthetics used for some wisdom teeth operations can leave people confused and completely out of it, which appears to be exactly what happened to Lexi.

“When did I turn on the stream?”

She began streaming on Twitch as soon as she got back into the car with her mom after the surgery and it was quickly clear that she wasn’t 100% there.

About 20 minutes into the post-op stream, Lexi said she had no idea how any of it had happened, like how she’d even gotten into her mom’s car or started streaming.

“Mom, I don’t remember coming down here and getting in the car, you helped me in the car,” Lexi informed her mother, who had a different version of events. “So when did I turn on the stream?”

For whatever reason, Lexi didn’t believe what she was hearing and acted like there was some kind of larger conspiracy afoot instead.

“I think there’s a lie in this, somewhere,” she informed her very receptive mom, before losing her train of thought once again.

To her credit, the streamer was a trooper and was live for a full hour and a half following the operation, even though the drugs still seemed to be having an effect by the time she signed off.

It can take up to a week or more to fully recover from wisdom tooth surgery, but considering that Lexi was already streaming immediately after the procedure, that wait period might not get in the way of her streaming schedule.

It’s a beautiful thing when the internet comes together to bring about iconic memes. Lately, Kim Kardashian is the inspiration behind a hilarious trend after she tweeted about her lavish birthday party. 

On October 27, Kim revealed to the world how she was celebrating her 40th birthday in style through a thread on Twitter, filled with images from the gathering.

She wrote, “I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.”

And she also acknowledged her own privilege, adding “I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is”

But one particular tweet in the thread found a whole new life of its own after parodies exploded on the platform. The tweet read, “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”

Twitter found it hilarious, providing their own versions of images alongside the text from the viral tweet – from different impressions of “private islands” to ominous depictions of the “inner circle”.  Scroll down to see some of the best parodies so far.

After 2 weeks of multiple health screens…

Drag Race’s Lemon inspired the ultimate nostalgia by pasting the tweet alongside an image from Club Penguin of the crowded iceberg from the game.

Journalist Sophie Thompson went so far as to use a screengrab from Midsommar, implying that a seemingly innocent getaway could turn into a horror movie – it is spooky season after all.

Attorney and author Rabia O’Chaudry continued the theme of implied violence with a screengrab from Game of Thrones, taking the narrative to a whole other level.

Comedian Katy Brand had the genius idea of using an image from the Wicker Man.

Internet personality Blessed Madonna compared Kim Kardashian’s get-together to Fyre Festival with this incredible image of one of the meals given to attendees at the infamous event.

Other tweets referred to popular games

We had to include a shameless plug: we added Kings Canyon, the original map in Apex legends.

Twitter is nowhere near finished with these amazing parodies, and will surely keep going until all the options are exhausted. Watch this space.
