You might remember Brittany Carnegie from such breaking, front-page stories as that time she tweeted a picture of the vandalism at boyfriend Milan Lucic’s church, or that other time she dominated the news cycle for calling Cory Schneider’s girlfriend a trucker. The latter incident was quite the foofaraw, if you’ll recall. According to Carnegie, she wore a Bruins hat to a game, Schneider’s girlfriend gave her the finger for it, and then she captured the hearts and imaginations of the entire hockey world by tweeting the tale of this whole sordid affair.
Considering the universe had yet to right the egregious wrongs Carnegie suffered on that fateful night, you knew she might have something to say about Schneider getting beaten on Jarrett Stoll’s overtime winner that eliminated Vancouver from the playoffs Sunday night.
Indeed she did. Within moments of the Canucks’ postseason coming to an abrupt end, Carnegie tweeted the following:
Now, there are two things to surmise from this tweet: first, considering the context and the timing of it, it’s pretty clear what she’s getting at. Second, between all this talk of truckers and karma (and her documented affinity for going out in bare feet), I’m beginning to wonder if Ms. Carnegie watches a bit too much “My Name is Earl”.
Unsurprisingly, she began to catch a little flak from the rage monkeys — Canuck fans were a little testy last night for some reason.
(See, I don’t mean bad karma for the Canucks because they lost. I mean good karma for me because they lost!)
For whatever reason, this didn’t quite pacify “certain people”.
Lucky for Carnegie, three hours later she clarified that she wasn’t even referring to the game at all. Game? What game? What’s hockey? You see, according to Carnegie, who totally wasn’t back-pedaling at all, that tweet had nothing to do with the Canucks (or “My Name is Earl”). Rather, it was actually about this necklace (which is definitely not from a Google Image search).
Brittany 1, haters 0. Next time don’t be so quick to jump to conclusions on your jump to conclusions mat.
And that’s the super-convincing story of how Brittany Carnegie punked everyone.
Speaking of exceedingly lame revenge tweets in the wake of the Canucks’ ouster, I enjoyed this one by Mike Dunsmore, the victim of Kevin Bieksa’s so-good-anyone-could-have-fallen-for-it Ryan Kesler impersonation:
In a related story, Dunsmore seems a bit testy for a guy that was in on the joke.
Unfortunately for Dunsmore, unbeknownst to him, the King he invited was actually Jeff Carter.Tags: brittany carnegie, Lucic, milan lucic girlfriend, punking everyone, Twitter, When Twitter is a regrettable medium
