On Tuesday, the Twitter account for Students For Liberty tweeted out an owl meme that criticized socialism.
Twitter user @USdotard responded to the tweet, mocking the account for using a meme which, according to them, showed an owl orgasming.
The exchange between the two accounts was screen shotted by @AndrewDHudson, whose tweet went viral. It's been retweeted over 19,000 times.
And people loved the sass.
However, there seemed to be some inconsistencies in various parts of this exchange. First the account claiming to be an owl expert was set up a month ago, and its main purpose up until now seems to have been talking about President Donald Trump.
They also appear to have changed their Twitter name to "Dr. Owl" following the tweet.
The owl picture seems to have come from an old meme about being tired.

It should also be noted that owls don't usually have blue eyes, as shown in the one in the meme.
Jamie Dunning, an ornithologist who has worked with owls, told BuzzFeed News there was no evidence to suggest that the owl in the meme was orgasming.
"Owls do not have an orgasm in the way we humans do. They likely do have some sort of reward mechanism for breeding, but birds has [sic] sex in a very different way," he said. "It really isn't very raunchy in birds."
