Snark bait! HuffPo oops-tweets cryptic, self-insulting message?

“Y” indeed! The Huffington Post Media account oops-tweeted that out Tuesday afternoon. The account also oops-tweeted this, which was immediately deleted:


Snark challenge accepted!

HuffPo Tech got in on the mocking action.

Heh. But the winner is …

Bam! Did HuffPo tweet out a self-insult in a rare fit of self-awareness?

You decide!

    Over at Huffington Post, They are now ferociously trying to locate the source of this leak.

    Arianna was the first one challenged, but she flatly denied it.

    In her defense, she says that if it would have been here, the tweet would have said something like “VYE”

    • o0Nighthawk0o

      And every one else they interviewed claimed to not be able to spell it.

  • RblDiver

    I’d say it’s a War on Women, but they’re leftist so by (their) definition they are incapable of such a thing >.>

  • Damien Johnson

    “Y are we still a crappy news outlet”

  • Marvin Nelson

    Y not?

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub



  • CatHerder

    XY? Guys rule?

  • ClinkinKY

    Y…”Because we like you, M-I-C-K-E-Y….”

    • Weygand

      Um…the Y is on the end of Mickey… they follow up that with M-O-U-S-E, not spelling Mickey a second time.

      • ClinkinKY

        That’s a “Mickey Mouse” response. Most people got the point:)

        • Lisa Dean

          Now it’s time to say goodbye…

          • ClinkinKY

            To all our company, M-I-C…see you real soon. OK, I’ve revealed my age:)

  • SineWaveII

    Y did we think Obama would be a good president?

  • Clayton Grant

    The people at HuffPo are consumate professionals!
    (does anyone need a /sarc tag with that?)

    • CatHerder

      No, but at first glance I read ‘consumed’.

      As in ‘ate up with it’.

      • Clayton Grant

        That’s consommè, a clear soup served in overrated French restaurants.
        I can remember being a young airman and saying things like; “That lifer’s ate up!” … then I became lifer.

        • CatHerder

          One up on me, I can’t remember being a young airman. Or much of anything else, come to that.

          • Clayton Grant

            Like me, you may have part-timer’s disease.

          • CatHerder

            More like CMS…can’t ‘member sh*t. (Got that from a guy that worked for Corrugated Maintenance Services when I asked him what the CMS on his cap stood for 😉

  • sickofitall1096

  • stillinthe60s

    NSA hack rest of their TWEET? IRS? Oh right, they’re not a conservative outfit.

  • Ralph_Gizzip

    I think they’re asking, “Why did we endorse Obama?”

  • Ralph_Gizzip

    Y? Because we hate America.
