Kim Kardashian Tries to Break the Internet; Internet Responds Hilariously (NSFW)

It's Hump Day, indeed.

Chances are you woke up this morning to a lot of booty on your news feed—Kim Kardashian's booty in particular. (Happy Hump Day?) In an attempt to #BreakTheInternet, the first two images of Kim Kardashian's new Paper magazine cover—shot by the legendary Jean Paul Goude—have been released, and they are just...

Our knee-jerk response to the first image we saw was a bit of speechlessness, followed by the admission that it's actually pretty impressive to not only balance a glass of Champagne on one's derriere, but also to somehow figure out the physics of getting the stream from the Champagne bottle to go directly into said glass without knocking it over.

That's talent. Or, you know, Photoshop. (But Kim insists that it's talent.)

Our reaction to the second photograph we saw? "Asalsfdihas;gwheogiwh." (NSFW ahead, if you haven't seen it already:)

Yeah. Remember this photo? Did you ever think this would seem G-rated?

Anyway, Paper and Kim set out to #BreakTheInternet. And while we know they mean this in a metaphorical sense (ish), we're happy to report that the Internet did not break. On the contrary, the Internet has swiftly responded. And while unfortunately, a lot of this "response" is people re-enacting the second photo—aka, the probability that you'll come across a stranger's bare ass on Instagram just got way higher—there are also some funny takes on it as well. Below, a few of our relatively less naked favorites:
