Show me a more sublime scandal than the recent College Cheating Scam; I'll wait. After a drawn out investigation by the incredible name of "Operation Varsity Blues," a dozen parents — including celebrities Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman (married to William H. Macy, also implicated) — were found guilty of bribing colleges to accept their less-than-deserving kids.

As you can imagine, the internet is enjoying this drama just about as much as I am and they're celebrating the incredible news with memes — because how else do we cope with anything these days.

Keep scrolling for some of the best #FreeAuntBecky memes out there, and I've also thrown some William H. Macy memes and Lynette Scavo in Desperate Housewives stills too for good measure. You're welcome.

Because this is a matter I'm particularly passionate about, I'd like to point out a couple of things. 1: Instead of going about this the normal way and simply making a donation to the school, which is what the ultra wealthy have been doing since universities were invented, Lori and Felicity (and other non-celebs, to be fair) decided to pay someone to take their kids' SATs, boost their grades and even — get this — doctor photos of them playing sports they've probably barely heard of.

2: I'm not sure about you guys, but I feel like if I was going to stick my neck out for my kid and commit fraud to get them into a university, I'd be keen on it being a good one. I'm talking Ivy League, or at least a Georgetown or Stanford vibe. But Lori and Felicity were just trying to get their kids into USC (which, as one tweeter aptly pointed out, "How the f--k are you rich and can’t get into USC") and UCLA (a state school in their state). More amazingly, Lori's daughter Olivia Jade has spent most her time at USC vlogging and influencing. "It's so hard to try in school when you don't care about anything you're learning" will hopefully go down in history as one of Olivia's greatest-ever soundbytes.

3: As a woman of color, I'm feeling this scandal is especially delicious because I was told in high school time and time again that I could "go anywhere I wanted" by virtue of being a minority. In other words, people were pointing out some sort of "unfair advantage" they thought I had in the college application process, without bothering to look at my v. good GPA, AP credits or extracurricular activities. Which is just to say, I really hope this scandal exposes the real advantages when it comes to college admissions: white privilege, systemic racism, and wealth.

ANYWAY, that's my TED talk. Hope you enjoyed the memes.
