Creating Twitter accounts for animals, fictional characters, and inanimate objects is all the rage with the kids these days. I’ll be the first to admit that some of them are actually kind of funny, though I’m starting to wonder if the proverbial bubble is about to burst on this trend. When a brutalized fire extinguisher receives its own account, you have to wonder if the well of creativity is starting to run dry. Seriously.
Knicks player Amar’e Stoudemire, experiencing a bit of frustration about losing to the Heat, decided to take out his problems on the glass box containing an ordinary, everyday fire extinguisher. The result of his impromptu boxing match: lacerations and an arm sling. Considering he still has games to play in the series, damaging his body probably isn’t the smartest move he could have made at this point. Then again, we all do some really stupid things when we’re angry.
We all have done thing out of anger that we regret. That makes us human. Bad timing on my part. Sorry guys. This to shall pass.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this whole scenario is the fact that someone decided to make a Twitter account for the physically abused fire extinguisher. As far as humorous Twitter feeds go, it’s really not that impressive. Sure, it is kind of amusing that someone would put some time and effort into crafting thoughts and feelings for the aforementioned extinguisher, but it really amounts to nothing but a few early morning chuckles. Unless, of course, you think the referring to a man’s mouth as a vagina is hilarious. If so, by all means, have at it.
Presently, @AAAExtinguisher has roughly 1200 fans, proof positive that people will follow just about anything trendy. You can have a look at a few of the extinguisher’s tweets and decide for yourself it this is something you’d like to read on a daily basis.
Chances are, probably not.
Ladies, I put out.
Coach Woodson was one of the people who had to separate Amare and I. His mouth looks like a 1970’s vagina.
Amare should look into getting a 2nd teardrop tattoo on his cheek after tonight.
