Lockout? Who cares?
It’s Hockey Day in Buffalo! If you’re heading to the game, it might be a good idea to give yourself a refresher on the Amerks’ jersey numbers. Don’t leave your Hockey IQ at home.
Meanwhile, there’s this:
And don’t tell me you’ve never heard of the “In Mother Russia” jokes before. These things are old. Stick tap to Yakov Smirnoff (yes, it was that guy) for launching this fun antimetabole (what?) meme waaaay back in the 80’s.
In America, you break law.
In Soviet Russia, law breaks you!
Funny stuff for the ages. (Meanwhile, in 80’s America, we were launching the high tech Max Headroom revolution. Yikes.)
Max Headroom… some memes were meant to stay in the 80’s.
Actually, this is not the tweet of the day. This is here for comparison purposes, and also for educational purposes. Since you now have loads of time on your hands (lots and lots of sad, lonely time) not watching hockey, go ahead and look up “Godwin’s Law.” It’s an awesomely fulfilling way to kill a stupid online argument (of which there are about a billion a day). Also, you will know what it means when I cite it when you are having a stupid online argument with me.
I called him out on this whole “not nice” thing, and this is what I got in return:
I am not a self-appointed expert. I am a self-appointed Internet argument MEDIATOR Mike, get it right.
In the end, Mike and I had a nice chat about trolling (likely after he saw my follower count was higher than 200), about responding to profane tweets without playing the role of the Twitter bully (i.e. acting with professional leadership), and about how social medias can get everyone all antsy in the pantsy.
Godwin’s Law was never cited.
Where the hell was I going with this post?
Oh yea – how about that SIM account pic? That’s my first avi that I used on Twitter. Warm fuzzy memories. I was new to the Twit-game then, and shy, having to hide my emotion behind gigantic glasses. So, which Avi wins? Original Avi, or the current Windswept-Pre-NHL-Lockouts-Me?
Whatever. All of the above are tweets of the day. Everyone wins the lockout tweet of the day thingy.
I need to get the hell out of this ridiculous lockout post now.
