Last night I had a very vivid dream. An elite team of Navy SEALs flew two Blackhawk helicopters into Rashard Mendenhall’s residence. After encountering token resistance from the dog (neutralized by Snausages), the elite special forces team located the Steelers running back in an upstairs bedroom, where he was in the process of tweeting a friend (not a euphemism). The SEALs confiscated his cell phone — and all others in the house — and then departed as quickly as they had arrived.
So, hopefully, there will be no further retarded tweets such as this:
5:37 p.m.: “We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style”
5:58 p.m.: “I’m not convinced he was even behind the attacks we have really seen no evidence to prove it other than the gov telling us”
6:28 p.m.: “For those of you who said you want to see Bin Laden burn in hell and piss on his ashes, I ask how would God feel about your heart?”
6:29 p.m.: “There is not an ignorant bone in my body. I just encourage you to #think”
I agree with that last sentence. And I right now I think I’m going to unfollow Rashard Mendenhall.
UPDATE: Steelers president Art Rooney II checks in on Mendenhall’s tweets.
