Neil Tyson is the bro’d-out Neil deGrasse Tyson alter ego 2016 needed
‘Is this Neil Tyson guy for real?’
Astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium director Neil deGrasse Tyson has quite the Twitter presence. He’s been a killjoy for science-fiction fans, beefed with flat Earth truther B.o.B, and even created his own country because facts can only bend for Tyson, apparently.
But there’s something missing in his tweets, something more laissez-faire, more laid back than the occasional dad joke or politically charged quip. He’s just not very turnt.
One Twitter user is trying to change that, though.
Damn near daily, Keaton Patti has given his followers the old Mr. Krabs meme and tweeted out hilarious fake Tyson tweets with the same message attached: “Is this Neil Tyson guy for real?”Oh, if only. Imagine partying with this guy, the one who nicknamed his penis the Hubble and eats Bibles on YouTube.
Just don’t forget to pay him back.
