    But let's not forget that Patton's a comedian, please. It turns out that he was tweeting longer messages that, when split up to meet Twitter's 140-character requirement, left the second tweet to say something completely unreal. Here's what one looks like in context:

    This is some high-level trolling, and boy, did it get some people riled up.
