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.

Perry, if that is Punxsutawney Phil, I wish you’d tell him to start getting his forecasts right. Spring did NOT come six weeks early this year.
