All Miley Cyrus-Robin Thicke 2013 MTV Video Music Awards twerking photos (and he’s even more of a cultural offender than she is, despite all the focus on her) should be put in a time capsule, never to be seen again by contemporaries. Should there be future civilizations, the photos will remain extant for anthropological study only, as historians wonder “What were they thinking?”

For now, if you find yourself writing about last weekend ever again, no photos, please.
