Tyler Durden's picture

Yes, Twitter is down for everyone, apparently impacting countries around the world. No need to strap on the kevlar vest and be on the look out for the stealth choppers...

It's on. Internet and banking global shutdown taking place. You have just Won a vacation to FEMA camp Kalifornia.

Comcast is down because they just suck. I always have problems with them.

How convenient.........Always seems to happen on market days like this.

So this sound like just a dry run for the real thing then, with a little realism thrown in.

A little ugly on the side.

Do not panic. This is merely a regularly-scheduled HAL2012 government data mining op, which will be completed shortly.

Now, move along, folks. Nothing to see here.

Abso-fuckin-lutly. The FED is loading software. Freedom be damned!

The camp with the difference, never mind the weather; when you're shipped to FEMA, the 'oliday's forever!

+1 for quoting the greatest album of all time.

Certainly on the short list. I'm a Quadrophenia fan meself.

"The price of meat has just gone up
An' yer ol' lady has just gone down . . . "

Not a personal reference, mind you. Except the meat part.

You say that like it's a bad thing. "Ignorance is bliss" applies here.

It's ALL going down now!  You can't resolve the issue if it's caused by central planning!

Mrs. Cog broke it. Sorry about that guys. :)

My wife has an Amazon grip

What once was a gusher's a drip

Some pleasure, some pain

Some financial gain

There's no need to order a snip


The Limerick King's picture

It has come to my attention that this limerick may contain some unintentional Canadiana ....some of us Canucks refer to a vasectomy as a "snip" (e.g. "He just got snipped"). My apologies for any confusion (You know what they say about explaining jokes.....I think it's the same for limericks!)

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

There is nothing to the rumor that Cog has been gripped and snipped.

Nuttin' I tell ya.

<Yes dear, I'll go shopping with you in a minute.>

Now where was I? :>)

Uncle Remus's picture

Wait - was that an octave higher?

Jonas Parker's picture

Oh no! My "tweets" have been "bleeped"!

EscapeKey's picture

With Twitter down, where will they announce that they'll be straight back up again?

BLOTTO's picture

Twitter can be such a TWAT

CvlDobd's picture

It went out about the same time the Dow stopped dropping. Must of been the inability of Tyler to spread truth so everyone bought the stocks lie.

Twitter is stupid anyways, who cares.
