Best of Twitter from February 18, 2021

It’s Thursday, so officially second half time! Unofficially a good reason to drink half a bottle of wine, just to celebrate the incoming weekend. Actually, today deserves a full bottle. The surprising news of the death of Rush Limbaugh didn’t come exactly as a shock, but the irony isn’t lost. A man, let’s call him that, it’s shorter than «Satan’s offspring and bringer of evil», who denied the existence of lung cancer gets killed by? Exactly. Lung cancer. The only surprise was that no hole opened up and the Riders of the Apocalypse came with an extra strong shetland pony to bring him home. We know, making fun of the death of a human being isn’t very popular. But for someone who played a «victory sound» on his TV show every time a gay celebrity died of AIDS, we’ll make an exception. Or with the words of the immortal Mark Twain: «I have never killed anyone, but I have read some obituary notices with great satisfaction». Speaking of satisfaction, here are our gems for you. Enjoy!
