Wounded warrior Joey Jones is full of win.
During the government shutdown, he joined fellow patriots in removing Barrycades at the World War II Memorial. “Used my robot legs to STAND for the few, proud of our greatest generation,” he tweeted, earning him actor Nick Searcy’s award for “Best Damn Tweet Ever Received By Me.”
He scored again with his takeoff on the liar in chief’s “like it, keep it” lie.
Best tweet ever? "@Johnny_Joey One time I was in AFG, and the Pres was all, "if you like your legs, you can keep them"… Now I'm like, wtf?

No need for a question mark, according to several of Nick Searcy’s followers: It’s the best tweet ever. Period.

Just one Internet? We think Jones wins at least three or four Internets.
If you haven’t read Jones’ blog post, “My legs were gone, only bloody rags remained of my pants,” read it. Now.
