Maybe that something is a paper clip, which is exactly what Riley Bassett's girlfriend, Ciara Tobin needed a few days ago. 

Ciara, who is a 20-year-old student at the University of Florida, messaged Riley to see if he happened to have said piece of stationery. 

Riley replied with a very specific image, which soon went viral and everyone who has ever had a messy bedroom could relate.

Prehistoric Bone Found from One of Largest Animals Ever

  Prehistoric Bone Found from One of Largest Animals Ever Ichthyosaurs are large marine reptiles which roamed the seas during the age of the dinosaurs. The fossil was found in May 2016 on the coast of Lilstock, Somerset, in the southwest of the country by collector Paul de la Salle, who also co-authored a new study describing the fossil which has been published in the journal PLOS One.

A 20-year-old student at the University of Florida named Ciara Tobin needed a paper clip , and texted her boyfriend, Riley Bassett, 20, to see if he had one. The insanely simple and hilarious conversation, shared on Twitter, led to a ton of commentary.

Its spare, machined aesthetic and its inexpensive ubiquity landed it a spot in MoMA’s 2004 show Humble Masterpieces. This was a pedestal too high for design critic Michael Bierut, who responded with an essay called “To Hell with the Simple Paper Clip .”


People loved Riley's hilarious honesty and many of the replies were just as amusing.




Some women who saw the tweet actually began to question their gender because of it.

People then began to look deeper into the photo and found several other things to crack a joke about.

When speaking to BuzzFeed, Ciara revealed that Riley isn't usually messy and is a fairly organised person. She said: He's typically a pretty organised person, so I think that it's funny that even when he's messy he's organised."

When Riley saw the tweet he reportedly didn't find it funny as he thought it was the most rational thing to do.

He told BuzzFeed:"  I don't have any paper clips and someone gave me that one. I was leaving my room in a hurry and dropped it and remembered where it was because it was my only one."
