As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week.
Something tells me Archie Goodwin is settling in quite nicely in Lexington:
Julius Mays (and just about every other Cat) made sure the Twitterverse knew about Twany Beckham’s slightly (and by slightly I mean VERY) embarrassing lip dub:

Josh Hopkins shares some poetry with us:
The team went out and engaged in a little of America’s pastime last week, hitting up a Lexington Legends game and the batting cages. Based on their Instagram photos (because those don’t lie), UK baseball coach Gary Henderson may want to think about inviting them over to the diamond.
We haven’t really heard much from Nerlens lately, but have no fear, he’s still got the mission in mind:
Oh, Jesus, they love me to pieces. I gotup in the game cause I was tired of the bleachers. I gtta get #9.

Sam Malone thinks he’s pretty cute, doesn’t he?
I hate the noise my phone alarm makes in the morning so i decided to change it to Don’t Wake Me Up by Chris Brown #oxymoron

Chuck Hayes obviously has a high opinion of himself:

This picture is hilarious:

It also may be the only picture in which Doron Lamb doesn’t look sleepy.
During his time in Lexington, “Cougartown” star Josh Hopkins got his picture taken with just about everyone: Stone Cold Willow, Drew Franklin, and even Ryan Harrow. I love that even though he’s a celebrity, he still gets that star struck look the rest of us do when we get our picture taken with a player:
Mark Krebs was dealt a crushing blow of reality this past week:
Found out the Central Park Zoo doesn’t have a lion, hippo, zebra, or giraffe… Madagascar is full of lies and deceit. #where‘sAlex&Marty

Houston has its own little #LaFamilia going on:
Sounds like Perry Stevenson is having a hard time adjusting to dorm life at the overseas invitational in Vegas:
Oh hey roomie.. Me walking in and slamming the door REALLY LOUDLY is code for don’t come out of the bathroom naked. Its a dorm.. Not a suite

Count Jared Lorenzen among the former Cats who are keeping tabs on the program, especially fellow Highlands alum Patrick Towles:
@patty_ice14 calling me out?!?! Don’t worry I gotta catch up with u 2. Gotta know how its going. I’m starting to get excied about the season

It’s never been in doubt, but Randall Cobb‘s still got a great arm, which he showcased at Wesley Woodyard’s camp last weekend:

Stevie Johnson may be one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, but he’s no match for the Tin Roof Challenge.
Ladies, if you wanna get with Corey Peters, you better cry pretty (h/t to â€@AmyMTrimble):
I can’t stand a woman that cry ugly
