Ten Funny Tweets Derek Re-Tweeted Last Week

White people be crazy!

A radical statement, certainly. However, events last week in Keene, New Hampshire during their #PumpkinFest celebration go a long way toward proving exactly that.

You see, it turns out that some New Englanders don't just get all nuts when, say, the Red Sox beat the Yankees in the World Series, or when the Bruins win at all. In the new tradition of people going apeshit over pumpkin-flavored things in Autumn, a bunch of them started destroying and looting because, er, pumpkins, I guess.

Naturally, the Twitterverse took full advantage to point out the similarities and differences between the rioting there and the peaceful protesting happening in #Ferguson, Missouri. The difference that really caught my eye (aside from the lack of military-style crowd control equipment in New Hampshire) is how the African-American people in Ferguson are referred to as "thugs" and "looters", while the white people in Keene are called "revelers".

The Great Pumpkin's spokesperson responded, "We do not negotiate with terrorists."
Anyway, crazy white folks aside, the fine folks at Twitter were in solid form last week, and I had a ton of tweets to go through. The worst part was deciding which ones to skip over. But, for better or worse, this is the ten I'm giving you. (In no particular order.)

And there you have it!

Now, before we head out with our usual video clip, let me just wish all of you an awesome Halloween! Have fun and don't eat too much candy! Have a great week! And let's start it out with this nightmare-inducing video from Weird Al Yankovic!

All the best,
Derek and Bosco
