Luongo, Kesler, Bieksa riff on greasy hair, indecipherable Burrows in odd Twitter conversation

The Canucks are on a roll, winning four straight. As a result, the team is feeling pretty loose and relaxed. Want proof? After their victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night, three Canucks engaged in an absurd and ridiculously hilarious conversation on Twitter.

We’re used to Roberto Luongo entertaining Canucks fans and the rest of the hockey world with his self-deprecating humour on his no-longer-alleged Twitter account, @strombone1, but on Sunday night Ryan Kesler (@Ryan_Kesler) and Kevin Bieksa (@kbieksa3) joined in on the fun. The three Canucks riffed on Luongo’s hair, for the most part, but couldn’t resist a couple quips on Burrows’ indecipherability and a couple body blows on Kesler’s nude photo.

It was particularly surprising to see Kesler join in on the fun, as his Twitter account is normally reserved for promoting one of his Canucks.com videos or tweeting about companies with which he conveniently has a sponsorship deal. But, similar to his surgery during the 2011 off-season, it appears that recovering from his injury has given him a little more downtime to improve his tweeting.

As per usual when it comes to Twitter shenanigans, @strombone1 got the ball rolling, but @kbieksa3 and @ryan_kesler were quick to pick it up and run with it:

 

 

 

Incidentally, #squirts and #rarebum are the worst hashtags in the history of Twitter. But it turns out that Kesler does see the resemblance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poor Burrows. The worst part is that he isn’t on Twitter and can’t defend himself publicly. One of the mainstream media guys will have to ask him about this face-to-face. I volunteer Elliott Pap.

They weren’t done there, however, as someone tweeted a picture that can be charitably called a photoshop at Bieksa that took things in a disturbing direction.

 

 

What the heck.

Of course, Canucks fans can’t leave well enough alone. Twitter user @cherry_grant decided to immortalize this marvelous Twitter conversation with a really gross and really well-done photoshop:

I find this troubling.

    My 4th favourite thing about following this exchange last night (after what Luongo said and what Bieksa said and what Kesler said), was knowing that that there’d be a PITB about it the next day and I’d get to relive it all over again. Thanks for not disappointing!

    I caught the early bits last night but missed the rest, when it got weirder (and therefore better). PITB comes through again!

    How do we know for sure Burrows doesn’t have a twitter account? Nobody would be able to understand his tweets anyway…

    The tape adds a deeply disturbing element to an otherwise lighthearted photo. That’ll be with me for awhile… but is it art?
