18 of the Funniest Burns from the Week of December 25, 2023
Even if you’re not a sports fan, you’ve probably heard about the Detroit Pistons this NBA season. The once-proud franchise is well on its way to setting an unprecedented record: the longest losing streak in league history. While the team’s heartbreaking overtime loss to the Boston Celtics gave them the longest losing streak in a single season, one more loss will see them hold the record for the longest losing streak period. The Twitter timeline has been anything but kind, but can you blame them? Kindness usually goes out the window around the fifth consecutive loss, let alone the 28th. The Pistons next chance to snap the skid is against the Toronto Raptors. Because the only thing more embarrassing than being the league’s biggest loser is cementing that status at the hands of a team from Canada.
Luckily for the Pistons, misery loves company, and so, they’re far from alone at rock bottom. Other sick burns this week included those about the gigantic, horrible, reviled baby who bought Twitter, the director keeping forgettable scripts in production and a legendary way to cheer up the short king in your life.
