How Cookies Really Won the Superbowl

Perhaps you heard the power went out right after halftime during Superbowl 47. Had it not been for twitter millions of us would have been eating extra snacks in order to avoid the pointless filler commentary rather than tweeting. There were some distasteful jokes that involved FEMA, rich people locked in the Superdome and suggestions that maybe the Superbowl shouldn’t be held in a former homeless shelter. There were also jokes and quips about Beyonce taking all the energy for herself and lots of “Ray Lewis, in the Superdome, with a candlestick” jokes. Whether you’re a football person or not, you have to admit that some of these tweets from brands, celebrities and everyday people are pretty funny and made the whole ridiculous ordeal a lot more entertaining.
