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.
There are no words:
In this week’s #NerlensKnows, Nerlens makes Kentucky fans all tingly with this “I gotta get #9” tweet:
Every day im hustlin’ on every court boomin’. Gettin’ that 9th banner i cant fathom, im such a student. I gtta get #9.

Me too, Kyle, me too:
Congrats to Eloy Vargas and Darius Miller for graduating from UK this past weekend. You know what graduation means…more dressing up and taking tons of pictures with your family. Eloy first, with his mom:
Darius didn’t post any graduation pics, but he did agree to take this very random snap with Danny Glover at the Derby:

Danny Glover being old makes me feel old.

Brian Long wasted no time getting his GTL on once he landed in Newark, heading to “the shore” the very next day. Maybe he can take Snooki’s place in the house this summer since she’s preggers?
Going down the shore tonight

When he wasn’t buying dogs, Jon Hood was happy to be home, too:
Rat tails, mullets, coal miners, no traffic, sweet tea, home cooked meals, and good people…..gotta love the WKY #homesweethome

Rex Chapman‘s daughter joined Twitter and wasted no time embarrassing her dad:

Who would pay $10 for Chris Smith‘s autograph?
And this is why Perry Stevenson is my favorite:

What would you do if a freaking mattress flew into your windshield while driving?
Whew, praise God! On 65 S, a mattress flys onto my windshield & couldn’t see a thing. Proverbs 3 5,6. Better ask somebody!!! #Godisgood

Bret Bearup welcomed Scott Padgett to Twitter last week, and gave him some friendly advice:
@ScottPadgett34 I’d recommend getting a picture for your avatar instead of an egg, first of all.Nobody likes to follow eggs.
— Bret Bearup (@BretBearup) May 3, 2012
Your move, Oscar Combs…
Ashley Judd continues to work with Walter, an abused dog she rescued recently. That is awesome, and I totally applaud her for her effort, but does Walter really need a patch of grass (moss?) to lay his head on while he sleeps?

John Wall and Aaron Rodgers have struck up a friendship recently, with Rodgers sending Wall this autographed jersey:

Moncell Allen shared a #tmitweet earlier this week. Word to the wise people: never tweet from the toilet. Never.
Yeah, Wesley Woodyard, that is an awkward moment:

Well, at least Maxwell Smith has the right attitude:

Ladies, you might look like Kate Upton, but unless you can cook, Smooth isn’t interested:
