People love to be right. Some go to great lengths to prove their worth, screen-shotting articles, making pie charts, and even creating videos to demonstrate. These folks are the true heroes in life, particularly when they get duped by sarcasm. It's a strange but genuine phenomenon, and there's no place better to observe this high level of righteousness than social media.

The following is a series of tweets that followed. Some are pure sarcasm, others... not so much, but the entertainment value is priceless. I chose a few of my favorites to share, but with over 6.7 million views, this post is full of laughs.
In the end, he fought the law and the law won, but it was well worth it. If you're on Twitter, make sure you're following Greg. His account is hysterical: a much needed break on days when people be testin' you.
