Two titans walked into the second presidential debate, and both emerged victorious. The internet agreed that a housefly and voter Kenneth Bone each gave a flawless performance.
The fly that kept landing on Hillary Clinton was strong early in the debate, distracting viewers while further proving her seemingly endless patience with agents of pestilence and decay.
But the late-breaking surprise was Ken Bone, an undecided voter who stole America’s hearts with his smart mustache, gentle aura, suggestive last name, and concern about fossil fuel jobs.
U.S. history books, 2150: “And in that moment, the republic was saved by a man named Ken Bone.”

And while all commentators agreed that the fly and Ken Bone delivered big at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, on Sunday night, before an audience of millions, many said Bone had the ultimate edge, not least because he brought a disposable camera.
I’m sorry Harambe … there’s a guy on teevee called “Ken Bone.” Your time is done.

Crazy thing is, Ken Bone just got into his 1998 Nissan Sentra and began driving home completely unaware he’s a worldwide legend.
