Roberto Luongo’s suspected, hilarious, meta-tweeting spree continues

Until proven otherwise, we at PITB are going to press on with our conviction that the @strombone1 account is owned and operated by one Roberto Luongo. As it stands, the evidence is on our side, as is the comedic value the account provides.

Recently, we noted that Luongo had taken to tweeting at a fake Roberto Luongo account to make jokes at his own expense. Last week, he effectively wished himself a happy birthday this way and later made a backhanded comment about Don Cherry’s tendency to mispronounce his name.

Over the weekend, Luongo employed this comedic trope three more times, all to amusing effect.

First, there was this holiday-themed tweet:

 

You may remember Luongo’s weak stomach from such overtime intermissions as May 4, 2007. With the playoffs upcoming, Luongo would be wise to keep his chocolate intake under control, so as to keep his output similarly harnessed. It’s tough to hold the fort when it isn’t the only thing you’re holding.

The next day, Luongo poked fun at one of his brothers.

 

GTLing (gym, tan, laundry) is the freshness and mintness-maintenance ritual espoused on MTV program The Jersey Shore. So which Luongo sibling has been GTLing with aplomb lately? My money’s on Fabio.

And finally, Luongo closed out his meta-tweeting spree with the finest Celebrity Apprentice/Canucks crossover tweet of the night.

 

If you’re not watching Celebrity Apprentice this season, here’s what you need to know: 1) You’re doing the right thing, and 2) Lou Ferrigno was sent home on April 9th. How long Luongo’s been waiting for Ferrigno to get the boot so he could use this tweet is anybody’s guess.

As a subtle commentary about Canuck nation’s tendency to flipflop on Luongo, this tweet wins the Internet.

Update: Luongo’s meta-tweeting streak continued Tuesday afternoon with yet another joke at the expense of his infamous bathroom break.

 

I have taken the liberty of Googling “kaopectate” for you in advance.

    Why would Vancouver want to get rid of this man? He’s hilarious.

      I’m waiting for Schneider to reveal that HE is Strombone1. Thus initiating a 6 week long WCW storyline that ends with a climactic ladder match to determine true ownership of Strombone1.

      Also, somewhere in the middle of this, AV gets hit by a black Lincoln while walking to his car in the Rogers Area parkade. Who was the driver? You’ll find out at the next Pay-Per-View!

    Ah. I just knew you guys were going to post on this. I seriously hope that that this account is Luongo and that we never know for sure. It’s just too fun this way. Especially if it is him, in which case it’s cool to see him crack jokes and be random and not saying things just for the media.

    Love ya, Luuuuuu!

    Glad to see you boys stayed away from the D. Sedin angle that the paid media is fruitlessly venturing towards today. But it is difficult to decide whether or not I’m happy about the D. Sedin drama is distracting the paid media from the C. Schneider/R. Luongo non-issue… hmmm

    I think Luongo wins just for having a brother named Fabio.

    You should edit this to add the most recent tweet from strombone1!

    “@Strombone1: Load up on the kaopectate my man @notbobbylu….. We don’t need any accidents tomorrow night!!!”

    I hope so deeply that this is actually Luongo.

    Just wondering what Vancouver fans think of the Hodgson/Kassian trade today? How long did it take for Everyone to realize Gragnani is the worst defencemen in the NHL and doesnt belong in the NHL? Sulzer did a pretty decent job in BLO.

      As long as Cam Barker is still employed by an NHL organization, Gragnani won’t be anywhere near the worst.
