Comedian John Crist has his finger on the pulse of the times with this sketch. He knows that in the age of the internet, it’s a pain in the neck to actually keep up with cultural and political issues before commenting on them. No one wants to do research before going on a screed on Facebook; the extra work just takes the fun out of ranting. Luckily, Crist has the solution to this conundrum: a new app called “Get Offended.”

In this spoof of social media start-ups, Crist imagines an app that lets users express their outrage over a story with just the touch of a button, no further effort required. Gone are the stone-age days of reading about something to work yourself into a frenzy over it. With “Get Offended,” 90 percent of your searing hot take is ready to go when you unlock your phone; you just have to choose which issue to post about (hint: all of them).

Just enter your ethnicity, religion and political party into the app, and the rest of the internet is now a sandbox for your fury. Technology sure is amazing.
