I’m receiving emails from pedantic high school English teachers for a joke tweet
By now you’re likely aware that Trump surrogate Michael Cohen appeared on CNN and had this hilarious exchange with host Brianna Keilar:
Keilar: “You say it’s not a shake-up, but you guys are down — “
Cohen: “Says who? Says who?”
Keilar: “Polls. Most of them. All of them?”
Cohen: “Says who?”
Keilar: “Polls. I just told you. I answered your question.”
Cohen: “Okay. Which polls?”
Keilar: “All of them.”
The video went viral, and the phrase “says who” started trending on Twitter. So I dashed off this joke tweet:
I knew right away that grammar nazis would start storming my feed so I tweeted a follow up clarification a minute later.
It was all for naught, because after my tweet got tons of retweets and was aggregated in a USA Today article I’m now receiving emails from pedantic high school English teachers.
Oh well, I guess I tried.
