Trolling the Internet on Independence Day

I decided to troll Twitter on the 4th of July by tweeting this:

People thought I was serious. They flipped out. I laughed and laughed. 

Here are a few of my favorite responses:

There's much more gold where that came from. Someone added my tweet to a few others in the same vein and put it on Tumblr, where the following image has garnered more than 51k notes.

And it's on Reddit, of course. 

Which led to an appearance on Gawker. That was mindblowing. 

In short: This is the most fun I've had on the internet since sliced bread.


It also popped up on Fail Blog, naturally.


And it featured in Buzzfeed's 33 Dumbest Things That Happened This Year. Scroll to No. 33.

Some people just can't take a joke...

So this is how you spent your Fourth of July, pathetically endeavoring to attract the most base form of attention from anonymous strangers on the internet, and you think it's something to brag about? Why don't you blog about something that matters?

You sir, are my hero.

Way to play it off like you meant to do it all along. ;)
