ou may not recognize his name, but Joel Osteen has quite the Twitter presence. Televangelist and Senior Pastor of the Lakewood Church in Houston, Osteen has 5.6 million followers who log on daily to draw inspiration and hope from his 15.9 thousand tweets and counting.
Osteen’s tweets tend to be short, uplifting snippets of what he preaches about weekly to his over 7 million viewers.
Osteen’s sermons are also broadcast 24-7 on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, Channel 128.
Most people have a positive reaction to these tweets and respond by thanking the preacher for his inspiring words.
Due to the nature of the Internet, however, many Twitter users find joy in poking fun at Osteen’s endless enthusiasm and strong Twitter presence.
I mean, he’s not wrong.
Bacon is bigger than all of us.
The latest to jump on the making-fun-of-Osteen bandwagon, is one Twitter user who had the genius idea of adding ‘in bed’ to the end of one of Osteens tweets.
With one small addition, it completely changes the meaning and thus opens the door to a comedy goldmine.
And Twitter users are loving it.
We all remember the popular middle school game of reading your fortune cookie aloud and putting ‘in bed’ at the end of it, to hilarious results.
News flash: It’s just as funny when you’re an (immature) adult.
One user was quick to add his own pick to the mix.
A solid contribution.
It gets funnier the more times you read it.
