‘The founding fathers are actually turning over in their graves’: Internet breaks into hysterics over 4.4 earthquake in Delaware Bay

Published

on

The earthquake that hit the Delaware Bay Thursday afternoon ranked only 4.4 on the Richter Scale. While Californian’s might call it a hiccup and Oklahoman’s might call a fracking accident, Twitter’s jokes seemed limitless.

One person posted a photo of a rock hitting a pond and warned of the shocking tsunami. Another called it a simple vibration and that he knew instantly what it was. He called his survival of the great Delaware Bay earthquake of 2017 bad news for liberals. One graphic appeared that is frequently used when small quakes or minor natural disasters become major news. It features a plastic set of lawn furniture with a chair that has fallen over. “We will rebuild,” the graphic is often captioned.

It’s unclear if Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. felt the same quake or had their own nearby jitter. However, the Philadelphia Phillies‏ got in on the humor, claiming the cause was their mascot Phillie Phanatic falling over. Another person blamed it on former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, an attempt at a joke about the Republican’s size. Others blamed President Donald Trump for no apparent reason, just because.

The best, however, came from those saying that it was the founding fathers collectively rolling over in their graves.

Then there were those who were more shocked over the fact that they live in the area and didn’t feel a thing.

Here are more of the fun jokes below:

The story begins in 2012 when Falwell and his wife enjoyed a stay at the Fontainebleau, a Florida luxury resort known for topless sunbathing and a massive underground nightclub described by one travel guide as "30,000 square feet of unadulterated fun."

Published

Meghan McCain dropped the B-word on air during an argument with Joy Behar, and social media users were just as shocked as the "The View" studio audience.

She and co-host Joy Behar were arguing over Trump supporters when McCain blew up.

“Being the sacrificial Republican every day,” she said. “I’m just trying to — don’t feel bad for me, bitch. I’m paid to do this, okay? Don’t feel bad for me.”

Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote

Published

on

Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.

Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.
