If you’re looking for a lazy, but still kinda funny, method of trolling, look no further than the Canadian band Nickelback. The band’s name itself has become a punch line, the joke being that “Nickelback is not a good band.” To that point, a good troll would be to make someone who lives a Nickelback-free lifestyle think about Nickelback. That’s where Nebraska Republican senator Ben Sasse comes in.
Look at this tweet. Every time I do it makes me laugh.
On the contrary, it is very funny. Sasse is mad about it, as evidenced by his period-separated final statement (later, he will tell you that he is, in fact, not mad, but laughing). Sasse — who believes that baby boomers are better than millennials because they didn’t have the polio vaccine — had to take precious time away from trying to kick millions of Americans off of their health insurance in order to unsubscribe multiple accounts from an email newsletter.
