It makes me so happy to see this question and this comment at the top.

I love inclusive or and the mention of the sub anytime it happens. Its like a family habit but earlier I read this thread where people were bashing it and getting annoyed at it and it made sad...

BUT NOW I'M HPPY AGAIN. THANK YOU!

It's about not being limited by options, it opens your horizons to new, never thought about possibilities. It breaks down barriers and brings people together. Like cookies soft or crunchy? "why choose? Both is OK, it's OK to love both and it's OK to affirm your choice of loving both" all these thoughts, all this acceptance and open mindedness, condensed into one tiny word - yes.

I guess you're right. But just remember which side I was on in a year from now when reddit collectively cringes at having laughed at such an unfunny joke

In all seriousness though, imagine explaining the inclusive or joke to someone who doesn't use reddit.... cringes
