Have you ever wondered what would happen if you crossed iconic educator Bill Nye the Science Guy with the musings of a weed-addled stoner?

Until Wednesday, any Twitter user who had that same question could follow @Bill_Nye_tho, a beloved account that has now been suspended. The account had been so popular that tweets like these netted anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 retweets:

“u ever see a cloud that look like an animal and it gets u so hype that ur neighbors call the cops,?”

“DONT LET ME CATCH YOU FORGETTIN HOW DOPE IT IS THAT U CAN JUST HAVE FISH IN UR HOUSE”

Now the account holder behind @Bill_Nye_tho has outed himself as comedy writer Lucas Gardner and is asking followers to raise awareness about the suspension.

“hi i'm @Bill_Nye_Tho. @BillNyeDoe is not me. neither are the other ones, fyi. please r/t.” he tweeted, with a screenshot of the suspended account.

According to Twitter’s official rules, impersonating a public figure is forbidden: “You may not impersonate others through the Twitter service in a manner that does or is intended to mislead, confuse, or deceive others.”

However, it’s hardly likely that anyone would confuse @Bill_Nye_tho’s random ramblings with the articulate tweets of the real Bill Nye. Just in case though, Gardner made it clear his account was a parody.

“i'm fake Bill Nye lmao ayyyeee real Bill Nye here -- @TheScienceGuy,” his Twitter profile said, according to Twitter search engine Topsy.

This isn’t the first time @Bill_Nye_tho has been suspended. The account had been shut down earlier this year on July 19.

“my account got suspended for a little while but i fixed it with science lol,” he wrote.

Perhaps this suspension will be equally temporary.
