Meme Of The Week: One Tweet Sends Internet Into Feral Hog Obsession

How do you respond to a guy who cites feral hogs as an excuse not to ban assault riffles? Twitter unleashed the answer.

The craziest and most shared meme of the week has a very serious root, which is atypical for memes. The immediate flood of jokes and photo montages was predictably sparked by someone with dumb opinions.

When addressing gun control, Twitter user William McNabb, whose profile picture is appropriately a hog, said that automatic weapons shouldn’t be banned because, how on earth is he supposed to protect his kids from the 30-50 feral hogs that sneak into his yard unannounced?

I don’t even know what to say to that and neither does the internet.

Because I’ve never encountered a feral hog myself, never mind 30 to 50 of them, William’s concerns appear to be hilarious and nonsensical. They also make me want to steer clear of rural America. According to CBS news though, feral hogs are no joke, being seriously disruptive in areas like Texas and other southern states of the country. In 2017 a bill was passed giving permission to people riding on hot air balloons to shoot these animals. I wish I was making this up, but it’s true.

Anyway. Have some 30-50 feral hog memes:
