If you don't have a Twitter account, I have two things to tell you:
1) Get a Twitter account. All the cool kids are doing it, and it's great for breaking news.
2) You missed out on dead raccoon movie quotes yesterday; the #1 trending topic in Canada thanks solely to PPP users.
It all started with this post by PPP member jrwendelmen over at his blog, Heroes in Rehab. Apparently a raccoon bit off more than he could chew, which in this case was a high voltage power line. That sucks, for the raccoon that is. After being posted in Sunday's FTB, word of the amazing photo spread throughout the Barilkosphere until member KidKawartha got ahold of it and posted this on Twitter:
@warwalker Six wardens have been through in my tenure, and I've learned one immutable, universal truth: dead animal pics are funny to guys.
From that the #deadraccoonmoviequotes hashtag was born. My favorites and the morning's links after the jump.
