There are a lot of people on the Internet deemed worthy of public hate these days, but perhaps no one’s more hilariously deserving than Paula Deen, the butter-betrusted chef who contracted diabetes only a few months before the world learned she was an unrepentant racist

Deen’s been on the losing end of more recent Internet pranks than the Houston Astros have lost baseball games, but last night’s gag may have taken the lard-filled cake. 

The Savannah, Ga., native has tried reinventing herself, firing her agent and her legal team after getting fired herself from a number of high-profile sponsorships. Se’s turned to Twitter in an effort to organically engage with her remaining supporters. 

Last night, however, she made a huge mistake.

Uh, oh. Don’t you know that unreasonably unhealthy racists should never dish out fill in the blank sentences on Twitter? Naturally, the Internet had a field day.

The show went on forever and ever. Friday morning, she returned to the microblogging service to tell her 1 million fans that “nothing smells better than Hoecakes cooking in the morning.”

Oh jeez, Paula, you just can’t get this right, can you?
