Fake interpreter at Mandela’s funeral starts a Twitter account, hilarity ensues

You may have heard on the news about that sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service was not actually a sign language interpreter. Turns out, he was only making random hand signals and were actually gibberish, according to experts.

Now there’s a plot twist: he started a Twitter account. Now, we’re not sure if it’s really the same guy. After all, this is the internet. But the apparent gibberish in his tweets make it seem it is really him. Some sample tweets:

‘Boathook. Bewildered alpaca?’
‘Love. Gone’.
‘Higgs Boson! Big shrew’.
‘Look out Miley Cyrus’.

No one has figured out the motives of this mystery man, but because of him, we are all reminded how the world can be a really silly place.
