How did he decide to spend it? Well: first, he posed his followers a question.
Who won Miss Tennessee this year?
The best part about this is that he doesn’t even know who won Miss Tennessee, nor can he be troubled to use Google.com — it’s an internet search engine — to find the answer. Fortunately, Twitter works very well when you have 38,000 followers.
@QuincyPondexter hi! Heard you were looking for me? #gogrizz
Aww! She’s a Grizzlies fan!
Yup!! single? Lol â€œ@MissTN2012: @QuincyPondexter hi! Heard you were looking for me? #gogrizzâ€
HAHAHA QUINCY PONDEXTER DIDN’T EVEN KNOW WHO MISS TENNESSEE WAS WHEN HE DECIDED TO ASK HER ON A DATE
QUINCY, YOU CAD
â€œ@Jon_Roser: Man there is nothing funnier than @QuincyPondexter mackin on @MissTN2012 on twitterâ€ I’m lovin’ it! And yes, totally single!
McDonald’s reference! But here we are folks: 2013 is the year when love between famous people blooms after completely undirected Twitter inquiries.
Oh totally single? Ditto … Date? Lol @MissTN2012
I mean, Pondexter does come off as kind of hilarious in this whole exchange. “Date? Lol” — “Marriage? Lol” — “Baby? Lol”
@QuincyPondexter you got it! We’ve got an audience waiting apparently!
There you have it, folks. It’s a sequel to You’ve Got Mail called 140 Characters. Things got even better when journalist-turned-Grizzlies-exec John Hollinger dropped some nice commentary on the situation.
@QuincyPondexter with the ultimate heat check.
Have fun, you crazy kids. If you need something to talk about, I recommend Quincy’s dog Buckets.
