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.
We have to start with this fish that Alex Poythress caught:

Looks like the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife may have a new spokesman.
Hey Alex, Rich Brooks raises you a Russian rainbow trout:

It’s very thick.
While Alex and Papa Brooks like to catch fish, Nerlens just likes to watch them:
This video is actually really soothing and beautiful. Also, if it wasn’t clear before now, the early 90’s are back:
All Nerlens needs is some overalls (only one strap fastened, of course), a bucket hat and some pogs, and he’s set.
Dakari Johnson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were teammates at St. Patrick’s for one season, during which they must have shared training techniques. Back in June, MKG posted a video of himself running up a mudhill, and earlier this week, Dakari posted a very similar video of himself running up a sand dune.
St. Patrick’s must be raising these boys right.
Erik Korem’s high performance program even has its own clothing line. Ladies and gents, high performance recovery tights, as modeled by the UK specialists:

Ain’t no shame in that.
You know how some people use back-to-school time as an excuse to wear all their new sweaters and outerwear despite it still being 90 degrees outside? Tod Lanter is like that, but with soup:
Just paid the full price for mexican gumbo at doba with the full intention of filling the bowl with solely tortilla soup #addict
— Tod Lanter (@tod_lanterIII) August 29, 2013
Too hot for soup! (Unless it’s gazpacho.)
Nerlens Noel is that guy asking for advice on his Fantasy Football draft on Twitter:
I have the 2nd pick in my NFL fantasy league, who should I pick?!

Riddle me this, riddle me that…what does Marcus Lee want for his birthday?
17 days till my birthday and I know exactly what I want. Only problem is it's not something you can buy..
— Titanium (@SuperKingMe) August 28, 2013
Is it bigger than a bread box? I’m going with a National Championship.
(Ten bucks says it’s love.)
Check out UK’s new walk-on EJ Floreal and Brad Calipari hooping at the Joe Craft Center last week:
Brad’s got pretty good moves…any chance he walks on at UK in a few years?
I am a fan of corny jokes, therefore this made me laugh:
Spaghetti, no noodles, no meat, I'm just saucy! ðŸ

Nothing wrong with a little gentle humor.
Corey Peters got his training camp package from Mark Stoops this week:

I think @TheRealZSmith gonna be scared to get a sack on Saturday lol…
— Avery Williamson (@awill40) August 26, 2013
That’s not just false, it’s Za’false.
Deep thoughts, from Danny Trevathan:
Don't focus on the one guy who hates you. You don't go to the park and set your picnic down next to the only pile of dog shit
— Danny Trevathan (@Grindin_59) August 25, 2013
So, they definitely didn’t have pool parties like this at Davidson:
Safe to say today was a success ðŸ‘Œ pic.twitter.com/bZDv1Nc1rs

This week’s “Tweet That Makes You Go Aww” is a tie between Derek Anderson and his cute kid:
Trying to make my son feel better but I think he already does! lol. pic.twitter.com/Ne8J0CPrCT

…and Erik Daniels’ son playing peewee football:
— Erik Daniels (@danielserik) August 27, 2013
Tiny children playing football ranks up there with the cutest things in the world, along with videos of different species of animals being friends on YouTube. I mean, what do a potbelly pig and a duck have in common? Nothing! But for some reason, they’re still cuddling in the barnyard. Amirite, Chris Tomlin?
TWEET OF THE WEEK: Doron Lamb
D.Lamb should win Socks of the Year for this pair:
