Thanks to Aaron Ansuini for one of those tweets about suffering that just grabs people by the feels and gets massively shared — 20k times and counting. And yet chances are good that you haven’t see it yet, because the Internet is vast. Here’s the tweet:

Demon: OUCH
Me: yeah...

Demon: EVERYTHING HURTS, WHY?? AND WHATS WRONG WITH THIS SHOULDER???
Me: idk man, can I offer you a mint?
Demon: BUT YOU LOOKED SO HEALTHY??
Me: heh… oh man… if I had a penny…

Demon: what the fresh hell is this?
Me: yeah, I know.
Demon: a headache EVERY F*ucking day? Are U serious?!
Me: here's the painkiller's pharmacy bill. Have fun.

I want to add this:

Demon: I’ve made a huge mistake.


P.S. By the way, I never “embed” tweets anymore. Why? Because they are outrageously overweight and stuffed with tracking tech. So I just copy the dang things and link to the tweet.
