On Twitter, ‘more people give a crap about National Donut Day’ than D-Day

The first Friday of every June is “National Donut Day.” This year, it happens to fall on the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Guess which occasion is trending:

null

Many are thinking that some priorities are seriously out of whack:

Really?

However, National Donut Day does at least have a military link:

Double D-Day:
1) In 1938 Salvation Army declared Donut Day to honor those that served donuts to WWI soldiers

2) D-Day – WWII, 1944— Kathryn Nelson (@TacoCatNelson) June 06, 2014

D-Day and National Donut Day can coexist, but it’s a shame the former has been overshadowed so far on Twitter.

Pharrell’s bizarre #Grammys hat goes viral, gets own Twitter account

Pretty sneaky, Pharrell! The ploy worked. Twitter was buzzing about singer/rapper/producer Pharrell’s Grammy Awards red carpet topper.

What does it remind you of?

Inevitable: Yep, Pharrell’s hat has its own Twitter handle.

Storage!

Ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum freaks out over Ted Nugent hunting pic

Whoa, Ted Nugent is a hunter? He hunts animals? Nothing gets by Matt Sorum.

For some reason, the former Guns’ N’ Roses drummer dug up a photo that Nugent posted to Facebook several months ago. The Facebook caption reads: “Caeden & Poppy whackin groundhog garden terrorists! Perfect day of bow & arrow varminting!”

This Twitter user took issue with the Sorum tweet that declared Nugent a “sick individual.”

Here’s Sorum’s full retweet and reply via tmi.me:

“@ABeastAmI_EUSC2: @mattsorum @TedNugent WTF Matt? Nothing wrong with hunting. I agree that trapping isn’t the best way. And morally on the edge.” Keep it to yourself pal

“Keep it to yourself pal”? Ah, of course. The inevitable demand for freedom from criticism.

Sorum may not get how this whole Twitter thing works.

Full tweet:

Interesting how @tednugent is allowed to spout his glorification of hunting and the NRA and I’m not allowed to defend the innocent creatures he kills at leisure ?? Remember he dodged the draft?? Who’s the real man now??

Sorum’s “not allowed” to tweet whatever he wants? Who’s stopping him?

Confirmed: Officer Sorum, self-appointed Twitter cop, doesn’t get this social media thingamabob.

I’m just sick of @tednugent rubbing our noses in it. Stay up in the bush and please don’t come out and I would be happy. Social media isn’t the place for your prize kills.

Sorum has problems sticking to Twitter’s 140-character limit for his oh-so-important missives, often relying on tmi.me to collect the overflow. We’re not going to publish all of his anti-hunting tweets because it’s a really annoying use of Twitter. But here are some of those tweets followed by the full tmi.me messages:

“@rovibe71: @mattsorum Tell us, Matt — are you a vegan?” That’s not the point , I’m just sick of Teds big mouth and narcissism , I don’t eat meat

“@genesisgareca: @mattsorum What the fuck is wrong with people?? Supporting a hunter and attacking someone who protects animals?” Like I said Angry people , sad , no honest rebuttal that makes sense

So far, Nugent hasn’t felt the need to respond via social media. Maybe he’s not getting enough Scary Meat Hormones or something.

Does anyone notice the reaction of these ignorant people? I truly believe the hormones and other crap they’re eating is affecting what mind they have left.

The enlightened Sorum has been a vegetarian for “over a year.”
