AJ Brown goes on odd moon-based Twitter rant on his 25th birthday
Newly signed Eagles receiver AJ Brown turned 25 yesterday and celebrated with a totally unprompted rant about the moon and the calendar.
AJ Brown started with the following tweet:
Brown then expanded on his thoughts in some deleted tweets, clearly deep in his thoughts on his 25th birthday.
While many assumed the sudden introspection was due to a birthday tango with The Green Lady herself, Brown made it clear that he doesn’t smoke or drink before the typical Twitter users with peanuts for brains attacked him in full force about his tweets, failing to realize that they should be the ones on trial for being on drugs due to their failure to think outside the realm of basic thought.
Still, the basic question on what was happening with Brown was valid, and after consulting the TLL medical database (Slack), it was clear that these types of thoughts are typically a primary side effect of marijuana use.
However, Brown was quick to nip that in the bud (pun fully intended):
He got back onto the mainstream science train, spitting some facts about the moon. Granted, I thought all of it was common knowledge, but who am I to downplay another man’s personal growth? The majority of people on Twitter are total idiots so the fact that Brown was sharing what he learned about the moon was honestly refreshing if users took a second to actually look thinks up and learn about them, which we all know they do not.
Regardless of how high you may think Brown was, he really didn’t say anything incorrect. Sure, the “we never went to the moon” take is a little too Kyrie Irving for my taste, but I can ignore that because he’s so damn good at football.
Side Note: Humans have only stepped foot on the moon a total of six times between 1969 and 1972. It’s honestly bizarre that we have never gone back and very easy to ask the question as to why that may be, but that’s a topic for another day.
At least he believes the Earth is round. That’s pretty much all I can ask for from a 1k-yard receiver.
A Twitter user posted that Brown was merely discussing the Ethiopian calendar, then made a joke about our public school system. I’ll concede that America’s schools are in shambles, but I don’t think not knowing the Ethiopian calendar will ruin our children’s futures. Seems like something you learn as needed. But I digress.
I know AJ said he doesn’t smoke, but I can’t help but think Nick Sirianni and Jeff Lurie hit him with a surprise birthday sesh. If it’s true, I can’t blame him. It’s tough to avoid when your head coach and employer are the two most diabolical stoners in the NFL.
