In what is either the most ridiculous Internet drama ever or a giant unfunny joke, one of the mods of a subreddit devoted to the weirdo comedy duo Tim and Eric temporarily shuttered the forum in a fit of pique after the Tim portion of the comedy duo made fun of Donald Trump on Twitter.
And so, for a time, this is what greeted visitors to the forum:
The subreddit opened again this afternoon, with a post from one of the mods asking regulars how they felt about “throwing [the subreddit’s] weight behind Trump’s campaign?”
If this is all some elaborate joke, it appears that most of the subreddit regulars aren’t in on it — and neither is Tim Heidecker. The subreddit is now filled with angry sniping about the (possibly not serious) proposal, and there’s a thread devoted to the proposition that the mods should be “stripped of their duties, titles, and forever banned from this subreddit.”
I don’t know what to think of it all, but in doing my half-assed research for this post I discovered that Tim now has a cooking show. Well, not so much “cooking” as “stirring,” and not so much a show as a couple of YouTube videos. So enjoy this recipe for cocktail sauce!
