JaVale McGee Fooled The Internet Into Thinking He Bought These Baby Platypuses Yesterday
On May 14th, Nuggets big man/imaginary boyfriend Javale McGee tweeted "Just copped a pet platypus....#swag" and posted a picture of two sleeping baby platypuses. I'm guessing he avoided the plural because he wasn't sure if it was "platypuses" or "platypi." Understandable:
Cute... but it was a joke.
Yes, as it turns out, the photo is almost three years old and no actual platypuses were held. McGee got everyone - and he really rubbed it in, too. Much like McGee himself, this development is simultaneously disappointing and amazing. And really, it was time for a JaVale-McGee-related joke to be on everybody else, for once.
