The Best Memes to Come Out of 'The Rupert and Wendi Show'S

Man, was that a gas or what? Two-plus hours of doddering and selective senility, with a surprise splosh party and French manicure attack thrown in for good measure! One day, we'll have a better understanding of what the Murdochian Inquisition meant in the grand scheme of things; but for now, let's just take a moment to savor the bounty of fresh memes it's produced. These memes to us be blessed, amen.

  • Meanwhile, the real Twitter account for failed pie-rrorist Jonnie Marbles (nee Jonathan May-Bowles) is being updated regularly. The last tweet before his moment of infamy: "It is a far better thing that I do now than I have ever done before #splat"
