Pulse The Nuts

Sometimes I like to have fun on the Internet. Here's an example of how it happens (and another reason why I love Twitter).

It started when I received an all-company email at work that contained the following text:

"In a food processor pulse only the nuts…"

Now, I could probably stop right there but I'll include the full text because, you know, I like to be fair.

"…and the sea salt until finely chopped but still chunky. Pour into a mixing bowl. Add the dried dates & other dried fruit to the processor and process until it makes a paste. Add the date mixture to the nuts and use your hands to kneed [sic] the nuts and dates together until well mixed. (It will be messy) Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil or grass fed butter. Make a big ball our [sic] of your bar mixture and push it down onto the greased baking sheet, about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut bars into desired shape. Serve and Enjoy! [sic]"

There's the whole text. I didn't need the whole text because I immediately latched onto "pulse only the nuts" and fired off an email to my co-worker. He responded with "#PulseTheNuts" and the game was on. We set off to Twitter to bring our new hashtag to the world.

I tweeted:

My co-worker tweeted:


I responded with:

He added:

It went on from there. I'd love to say that it became a trending worldwide but it did not. It didn't even become a trending toping in Chicago. Hell, it was barely a trending topic in the office. Who cares? It was fun and Pile_of_Derp and I sure did have a good time with it and will continue to have a good time with it. It's random, stupid things like this that make me giggle like an idiot and add a few minutes of fun to an otherwise boring workday. Just a little bit of fun collaboration with a friend to make each other laugh. 

Thanks, Internet.
