Ten Funny Tweets Derek Re-Tweeted Last Week

Hi, guys!

Let's be honest; last week was not a great week. So, in order to get through all the garbage that happened, I'm employing some awesome Mythbusters GIFs because there is nothing not awesome about Mythbusters. (Aside from it not being on the air anymore.)

See? Awesome.
Anyway, as I said, it was not a great week. It started out the Saturday before when it was announced that Adam West passed away, leaving us a superhero short when we really could use one. However, the city of Los Angeles paid a really great tribute to him by firing up the old Bat-Signal and shining it on City Hall.

Again, thank you, Mr. West.

Good luck with that.
Megyn Kelly, former Fox "News" yeller, is working for MSNBC now, and it seems that she opened a can of worms when she decided to interview screaming conspiracy bullfrog Alex Jones for her show. Before it even came out, the complaints started, and the sponsors started pulling advertising.

One of the most unexpected complaints came from Jones himself, who says Kelly's interview was deceptively edited to come off as a hit piece, despite promising him it would not be. How do we know she promised this? Why, because Jones recorded her telling him as much!

Yes, it turns out that the paranoid InfoWars host tapes any and all interviews he does, in the event that he doesn't come off as crazy enough. And, feeling he wasn't given a fair shake, he is threatening to release the entire recording of his conversation with Kelly, although he has only released small chunks at this point, all designed to make Kelly look like a horrible person. (As if we didn't already think that.)

Here's a clip from the interview.
Another awful thing happened when a nutbag with a gun decided, "Hey, I disagree with Republicans, so I think I'll shoot them a lot."

The man, a self-described Bernie Sanders supporter, took his gun to a baseball field where Republican lawmakers were practicing for a charity baseball game against Democratic lawmakers, and opened fire, shooting several people, including Louisiana Republican Steve Scalise.

Here's the thing: I disagree with Republicans in general, and Scalise is no angel himself. Some of the stuff he supports is reprehensible to me, but I would never, ever advocate taking a gun to anybody just because you disagree with their thinking. That's not the way to make change happen. If you have ever thought about doing something like that, regardless of your political affiliation, religion, or any other thing, you are an asshole.

I wish Representative Scalise a quick recovery.

Harmless destruction is way more entertaining.
With last week's testimony from former FBI Director James Comey, we had so much drama and fascinating revelations. So, of course, the same was expected when it was announced that bitter Keebler elf Attorney General Jeff Sessions would be offering his own testimony in the Trump-Russia scandal.

But the drama and revelations didn't happen. Instead, we got a bunch of mumbling, an inordinate number of "I don't recall" responded, and a clearly shaken Sessions who seemed confused that California Senator Kamala Harris, a black woman, was allowed to ask him things and expect answers.

Truthfully, nothing got accomplished, and it was a waste of time. I hope episode three of Senate Investigation Testimony is better.

And, on a more upbeat note, it's Pride Month! We at Here Be Spoilers support our LGBTQ+ friends, and we hope they have an awesome time getting out there and having parades and getting married and living their lives and being happy and all that. There were a bunch of parades last week, and there were some incredible celebrities that showed up to offer their support!

Stay proud, you guys! And for those LGBTQ+ folks out there who are in to Pride and cool stuff that goes "BOOM", here's this:

It's an explosion of awesomeness!
And there were tweets...

As usual, I grabbed a random(ish) handful of them to cram into your eyes. If you dig 'em, follow these funny folks. If you don't...I dunno...maybe go fishing or something.

In no particular order...

And there you have it! Now get out there and have a great week! And to kick it off, as we head into the warm summer, it's important to remember what we're missing from winter, so here's another classic from the Holderness family:

And, after all this, if you can't figure out why Twitter is awesome, observe:

All the best,
Derek and Bosco
