Welcome to your ACC Tweets of the Week post, where we highlight the funniest stuff said in 140 characters or less, about any and everything related to ACC Sports.
It has been the week of our nation's birthday, and once again we have celebrated it the true American way. We drank beer, grilled flesh, and blew. Crap. Up.
I've made it no secret that the Toe family lives in Sakerlina. At the same time, I see a lot of jokes fly around on Twitter and other media formats about Sakerlina. That's fine. I get it. I grew up in Charlotte, and we used to do it all the time. "What a bunch of backwards rednecks", we used to say. The only reason I live down here now is so that my chaps (the little toes) don't have to go to public school up there. I also work in and enjoy the benefits of a big city, while paying lower property taxes (and fuel tax!!) by living just south of the border. I can't buy beer in this state on Sunday, mind you, but I will bitch about that some other time.
What doesn't get said enough about the great Sandlapper state, is just how much our FIREWORKS kick ass. I don't know Class A from Class C or what have you, but what I do know is that you can get some serious, high level ordinance around these parts. Now, we moved into a bigger house in April, so this was our first Independence Day in this neighborhood. It's a small community, and the houses are typically pretty close together. Did that stop those knuckleheads from their reckless display of munitions? Oh, hell no.
I tell you what boys, that shit was impressive. And the best part? I didn't even have to set fire to my own money. Nope, I sat my cheap ass on the front lawn, sipped my Miller Lites, and took it all in. Now, if that ain't America I'll kiss your ass.
Yet another sloooowww week on the Twitternets. Which reminds me, I need to make a little PSA here. There will be no Weekly Twitterings post next week. The Toes are going to be buried in the sand, and you clowns will just have to get over it. Maybe if I get enough R&R, I'll post an extra long bonus edition in a few Fridays. Probably not though. I am a lazy bastard. Off to the Tweets!
I don't know if this is true or not, but I found it mildly humorous:

Mean, I know, but funny nonetheless. Speaking of mean, and totally un-ACC related, I found this worthy of a LOL:

You could have had it aaaallllll... Here is some quality snark:
