I mean, speaking professionally this Tweet is master-level work. I want to use it to teach a class.
It’s perfectly designed for its target audience: David assumes that you know the story of the de Blasio Groundhog Murder (and Coverup) already, and that you know about Mike Bloomberg’s insane mayor-clown anti-gun posse – which means he can go with the joke without having to explain anything. I mean, sure, if you’re a first-time Twitter user who doesn’t follow politics you won’t get the jok… no, wait, there’s a picture of a groundhog about to savage a man’s ear. You’d still get the joke anyway.
As I said: I am impressed in a professional capacity with this tweet. It’s just that good.
Then again, I’m probably in good company on this one. Or possibly bad company. Depends on your point of view, I guess.
Happy Groundhog Day!
And they wonder why people point and laugh.
Seriously, these people would normally be yelling about Groundhog Day celebrations where the mayor didn’t off a groundhog. It’s a little weird that they’re honoring somebody with sciurid blood on his hands…
Well, *I* would.
So I can’t blame the groundhog. Probably worried about De Blasio’s proposed property tax hikes. ‘Wealthiest members of the city,’ my eye.
PS: I call upon the Governor of NJ to offer the groundhog asylum.
PPS: Admittedly, it ain’t the ravens fleeing the Tower of London, but this isn’t the most auspicious omen in the world, either.
This photo could very easily be labeled as “Mayor Mike Bloomberg*about to do to a groundhog what he’s been doing lately to NYC.”
Sweet God. It’s getting so bad for The City that I’ve been asking myself lately, Would the Working Families’ Party freakazoid really have been that awful? – I mean, seriously: banning smoking in the freaking public parks? This overwhelms my ability to snark about it.
