As of this column, however, that Benny the Bull GIF has been retweeted upwards of 28,000 times. But hey—numbers don’t lie. I thought said GIF was funny. I shared said GIF with my followers. Popcorn is perfect for this type of event as, for starters, it’s a commonly consumed snack within arenas and stadiums throughout the country, and it’s the type of snack that, when blasted into the air, makes a mess of hilarious proportions while being much easier to clean up than, say, a beer. Benny Hill, who by now had changed his name – he thought Alfie Hill made him sound like a cheap barrow boy and Jack Benny was one of his favourite comedians – had two auditions at the Windmill.

Anyway, Palmer benefited from the comical scramble and eventually managed to dot down. http://ift.tt/1NmOu80 Love #sport follow #sports on @cutephonecases Two years ago this March, the Chicago Bulls mascot, Benny the Bull, engaged in one of his many popcorn-related incidents. DeNunez pitches the ball to benny and benny hits the ball with a big bang. You see, Benny has a thing for popcorn, taking part in various in-game stunts that typically end with popcorn being sprayed upon the United Center. Let’s call this the “Meta Meme” category. These mentions, however, while not necessarily benefiting me in any capacity, were quite fun to watch unfold. The results are—as could be best described—unexpected. Setup. Originality is hard. Tom Valentino (@1TomValentino, Contributors: Special shout out to the now suspended account which didn’t even bother to change the caption. WFNY examines the fallout. Andrew Clayman (@ClaymanWFNY) It’s relative and subjective and is oftentimes in the eye of the beholder. (Click on the image if it's not playing.). Really sets off the blue helmet. It’s a story about nothing, but not in the way Seinfeld was able to do so. If you ask me, this pretentious winter runner tweet, which got an infinitesimal amount of traction, was much better. https://t.co/4LcVgsifxs, — Scott @ WFNY (@WFNYScott) January 6, 2017.

Will Gibson (@wjcgibson) The saddest turn, however, came with the five percent or replies who were most determined to make sure the rest of the world knew that Benny the Bull never truly intended to dunk the basketball and that the entire scene was—wait for it…—staged! Replies like those above would encompass what I would consider to be 95 percent of the tone—most of which were that of enjoyment. John Colosimo (@JCozmo) The rub, of course, is Benny being blindfolded which would make such a feat terribly difficult. Then came the variety of “life comes at you fast” and other social media memes.

Question. Joe Gerberry (@TheGerbsWFNY), Podcast Hosts: The weirdest turn came when others blatantly took what was obviously catching some traction, and attempted to replicate it themselves in what I’d call the “Broken RT Button” category. We’ll call this the “Close to Home” category. Every person on this planet would now have the option to land this home […], Boy do I wish this group could have come up with one good thing Baker can do, instead of focusing on what he might be able to do, if he changes everything about his game, and has the best offensive line and the best running back at all times.Since there really isn't anything, I have […]. But two years ago this March, Benny took part in an in-game stunt where he was purported to be blindfolded. On Twitter, as I’m a fan of round numbers, 1,000 RTs is sort of my benchmark for when something does well. Lest anyone think that this is a #humblebrag of any sort, know that I benefit in no way whatsoever from this happening, nor was it my goal. We’ll call these the “Curious” crowd.

Those of us at WFNY have a wide ranging target for when a post we publish does well, though “viral” is rarely in our wheelhouse. Corey Barnes (@Corey_Barnes) It’s a story about a sprinting mascot, way too much popcorn, and the subsequent fallout of publishing a GIF of a sprinting mascot and way too much popcorn. Jay Cannon (@JayTCannon) Tim O'Connor (@TimROConnor) Nevertheless, on Friday, I posted this two-year-old GIF on Twitter with a simple and innocuous and honest caption. https://twitter.com/LeePhilipA/status/817963618964602880, https://twitter.com/RobertDuaneFine/status/817983009328611328, https://twitter.com/Dball_23/status/817986041940307969, https://twitter.com/Garrettb26/status/817991382002372608, https://twitter.com/RollyJodger322/status/817999711588073472. When the balls are in place even slight movements of the hips or thighs will cause the contents of the loaded ball to move or roll producing a pleasant vibration. Jim Pete (@JimPeteEHC) Popcorn.

What if the Bucs & Rams meet in the NFC Champ game? In fact, that’s a shit ton of popcorn, and unsuspecting collisions are the things that keep America’s Funniest Home Videos on air after decades of other unsuspecting collisions. We are well aware that rugby clubs in the USA can have drinking cultures every bit as notorious as those on this side of the Atlantic, but we didn’t think they got going before kickoff. This is insane. I like those gray Rams unis. Jon Steiner (@NowImJon) Email This BlogThis!

Dave Sterling (@dimoko) TD Dery (@TD1TribeKU) To put this in perspective, my sticky tweet has a little over 1,000 retweets and has been up since May, yet has fewer than three-hundred thousand impressions—ten percent of the Benny the Bull GIF.
