I feel really, really good today.
The reason? Simple Orac has annoyed Jim Carrey enough to ban him on Twitter. The exchange went something like this. For the first time in a while, I was perusing Twitter (I have a really hard time keeping my Insolence to 140 characters; so I only check my Twitter account maybe once or twice a week) when I saw someone mention a couple of Tweets by Jim Carrey that went like this:
Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s studies r being unfairly supressed. His newest vacs vs unvacs study MUST BE PUBLISHED. RT “Show Me The Monkeys!” ;^)
Folks, it’s a REAL STUDY of chimps subjected to our childrens’ vaccine schedule and pharma doesn’t want the UNWELCOME TRUTH published. ;^)
Naturally, upon seeing these Tweets, I couldn’t resist sending Jim’s way just a little Insolence in five bursts of 140 characters:
@JimCarrey Generation Rescue’s conspiracy theories on the Wakefield study are laughable. http://preview.tinyurl.com/ylnzavh
@JimCarrey BTW, Jenny & your conspiracy theory on Wakefield is hilarious. http://tinyurl.com/yax79n7
@JimCarrey How about instead we RT “Andrew Wakefield finally got what was coming to him”?
@JimCarrey You do realize, don’t you, that you’re sounding more and more like Fire Marshal Bill talking vaccines. http://tinyurl.com/c3pmdo
@JimCarrey Finally, it wasn’t chimpanzees. It was infant Macaque monkeys subjected to injections and then killed for no good reason.
Carrey’s reponses were beyond pathetic:
@oracknows have a smoke. science says it’s healthy. ;^)
science bloggers and media snow jobbers, if selling your soul to big pharma has you depressed, try Abilify + “Show Me The Monkeys!” RT ;^)
Today I notice that it would appear that Carrey has blocked me. A badge of honor, it is, at least to me.
People demanded a screen shot; so I give you screen shots. Click on the images for a larger version.
