Patton Oswalt Rewrote the Book on Trolling TwitterS

Most people use their weekend to run errands or eat expensive eggs or catch up on DVR'ed reruns of Hardcore Pawn. Patton Oswalt spent Saturday reinventing the art of trolling people on Twitter.

Users who stumbled onto Oswalt's feed in medias res were left wondering why, for instance, the staunchly liberal comedian was supporting the separation of "whites" and "darks." Or why he felt "Hitler was absolutely right about the Jews." And how he suddenly arrived at the opinion that AIDS "is a gift from God."

Sure, the gag itself, once revealed, seems simple — but therein belies its instant legendary status.
