Two talented comedians gave a late-night insult comedy master class on Twitter.

Late Tuesday evening, comedian Patton Oswalt got into a Twitter scuffle with Dave Anthony, best known for cohosting the Walking the Room comedy podcast with Greg Behrendt.

Though some users saw only bits and pieces of the two men’s spat, causing them to erroneously conclude they were really mad at each other, it was anything but: The two are clearly friends; Oswalt has guested on Walking the Room nine times. Instead, this was two comedians on their A-game, ringing in the new year with a master class in late-night insult comedy tweeting.
