Dying To Sell

The first is one the vast majority of people share. The second, well, that only applies to estate agents.

Bacon Is Life

Like this guy, I could never promise to eat less bacon. That’s just madness.

Early Fail

This person failed to stick to their new year’s resolution even before the new year began, tweeting about just doing stuff rather than just doing stuff.

Lingering Tabs

I’m sure there a few MakeUseOf readers who share similar thoughts. As long as MakeUseOf articles are given priority, of course.

The Owl Police

It could work, I suppose. If a) owls had the capacity to talk, b) the ability to recognize when crimes are being committed, and c) could be everywhere at all times. So, no.

Patience Is A Virtue

That’s just impossible. So give up now and continue to get p***ed off at their existence.

Lucky Dolphins

Dolphins everywhere are celebrating this news with wild abandon.

Saucy Selfies

Good luck with that one, Joel. But please, for all our sakes, don’t post the resulting series of selfies to Twitter.

Making Progress

It may not be the most ambitious of plans, but it is at least a start.

Affecting Effects

Buy a dictionary, mix hazelnut syrup into chocolate spread, and do a quick search on eBay. Sorted.

2013 Called

If you don’t know how to twerk by now then I suggest you give up trying to learn and instead wait for the next ridiculous dance craze to come along.

That’s So Punny

This may well be a golden oldie repeated by some wag or other each and every new year. But having not heard it before, I must admit to rather enjoying it.

Everybody’s Resolution

Seinfeld fans are currently grinning, while the rest of the population are wondering who Lloyd Braun is.

Procrastination Policy

That is some solid procrastination right there. Still, if it works then perhaps September resolutions could become a new tradition.

Big Ambitions

With so many BOGOF offers around these days achieving this is entirely possible. And you’re likely to discover new foods in the process. I’m in.

Guaranteed Success

Who wants to have a bet with me on this one? I’ll stake some serious cash on him achieving his goal.

Resolution Revolution

We see what you did there. And this was just one of the countless similar tweets purposely confusing the two meanings of the word “resolution.

He’s Not Fussy

It’s short, it’s not particularly sweet, and it’s out of his control whether he manages to achieve his goal or not. Still, you’ve got to have a dream.

Have You Made A Strange Resolution?

So, you’ve heard what strange resolutions people have been making on Twitter, and now it’s your turn to get involved. Simply take to the comments section below and tell us either what you think of the new year’s resolutions revealed above, or, even better, reveal your own peculiar new year’s resolution(s).

We promise not to laugh at how ridiculous they are, at least to your faces. But we cannot make any such promises about the reaction you’ll get in MakeUseOf’s virtual offices. Still, it’s good to laugh. So much so that perhaps that should be my own personal resolution as we head deeper into the new year.
