You don’t have to be a fan of the TV shows “Better Call Saul” or “Breaking Bad,” to enjoy this Twitter dispute.

Heck, you don’t even have to have seen either show, because here’s the background:

In “Breaking Bad,” we saw the lawyer Saul Goodman leaving Albuquerque, N.M., to start a new life in Nebraska. It was, shall we say, in his best interest to relocate with a new name. That fact was referenced in the start of “Better Call Saul.”

The Royals’ Class AAA affiliate tweeted this gem after the series premiered earlier this month:

Uh-oh. The Albuquerque Isotopes were not pleased and a Twitter skirmish was started.

A nice bit of photo reworking here:

But Albuquerque brought out the big guns (stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Jonathan Banks from “Breaking Bad”):

Omaha then remembered this happened:

The Isotopes again trotted out their stars:

The “disagreement” was all in good fun, right?

That’s not good ... unless you have some fulminated mercury, right?
