Stories for everything

The internet is poking fun at Facebook's newly-launched Stories feature on its app.

Stories is a feed of videos and pictures in the top strip of an app that typically disappear within 24 hours.

While it originated in Snapchat, similar features have recently been added to Facebook-owned Instagram, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp.

However, its latest appearance on the Facebook app had prompted social media users to create memes rolling it out to almost everything.

KFC Australia joined in on the fun, with their own KFC stories bucket.

Microwaves and iClicker remotes also incorporate the feature in the memes.

Even a car dashboard and a highway Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system joined the online roll-out.

And if you were to find yourself getting pulled over, Iowa State University Police are planning Stories for their tickets.
