For Pete's Sake

Twitter is having way too much fun with Ryan Lochte story

This sums up what many people are thinking today:

The story of Ryan Lochte and other U.S. swimmers being robbed at gunpoint on Sunday started with amazement. Lochte initially said a gun was pointed at his head and he said “whatever.”

Things have unraveled since then. Lochte is back in the United States, but those with him during the alleged robbery are still in Brazil, where authorities reportedly believe the story was fabricated.

Here in the States, people are mesmerized by the tale. And many are having a lot of fun on Twitter.
