The State Department is continuing its trend of total incompetence!

That’s right, new Secretary of State John Kerry will be tweeting using “JK.” But, to be fair, his confirmation hearing was a lovefest-filled joke. So, it stands to reason that all of his tweets will be signed “JK.” You see, JK means “just kidding” in Internet-speak.

Twitter users gasp for breath.

Keep the mock-tastic tweets coming, Twitter. And speaking of “witty jests,” Kerry arrived at the State Department this morning.

Of course, he was late.


Way to start off your tenure, Secretary of State Kerry. Ah, if only the State Department would come out and say, “That whole Secretary of State Kerry thing? JK!”

Update: The mockery just keeps getting better and better.

    He originally planned to sign it OMG (Old Male Gigolo), but Te-re-za forbade it.

      HA!!!!!!!! now THAT is funny, sorry I didn’t think of it.

    LOL Kerry is like a Muppet version of VP Biden – this could fun, so long as it does not end up tragic. Truth be told, however, he should be signing as ‘JH’… wait, he didn’t take his wife’s last name when marrying her? Astonishing…

    Correction: The office is now known as “Secretariat” of State. #HeyBuddyWhyTheLongFace j/k

    Hmm. So, any tweets from Sec of State Kerry will be signed as “JK”, and likewise from the Asst Sec of State as “LOL”?

    …Yeah, do we see the problem here?
