Reddit Wins the /superbowl

Build Houston Online
The Super Bowl is a huge deal in America. People gather laden with fattening snacks and painted faces to communally scream at the television. Super Bowl parties are rowdy by nature. It's the trend to get overly-invested. Something about big men smashing into one another instills watchers with a primal sense of fanaticism.

While the sporting event is passed, leaving half the nation with the bitter taste of defeat and the other half with a gloating sense of glory, it hasn't been forgotten. The ever-popular commercials are circulating YouTube and Lady Gaga's halftime show remains the talk of the town.

An interesting subsection of the internet has found a way to infiltrate the sporting festivities in a way only neckbeards ... er ... Redditors can. They've created a hilarious subreddit.

Introducing /superbowl, a subreddit dedicated to superb owls. There's even a tribute to Lady Gaga's half-time show.

Now the optimists among you may simply assume that the subreddit was created by a lover of owls, someone who appreciates the graceful beauty of these birds of prey. An experienced Redditor instinctually knows, however, that it was created for the sole purpose of confusing those who are legitimately looking for Super Bowl news.

Unsuspecting visitors expressed their confusion on the subreddit, though their honesty fanned the flames of joy for internet trolls.

The humour of the coincidental situation was enough to earn /superbowl the title Subreddit of the Day on 5th of February. The group responsible for handing out the title, /subredditoftheday, put together an owl-filled post to commemorate the occasion.

Subreddits

For those who are unfamiliar with subreddits, they are small communities within the larger Reddit message board. Google defines a subreddit as "a forum dedicated to a specific topic on the website Reddit." Subreddits can be created for any topic imaginable, from the baffling madness of /enlightenedbirdmen to the scintillating discussion of /debatefacisim.
