I used to believe that the particular “4G” pictured above — Greed Is Good Gordon Gekko — was the biggest villain of the past 40 years, because he exemplified corporate America run amok.

And many of us glorified him.

The only good reason to keep using Twitter is to troll pompous pricks:

Who needs The Onion? I am digging The Babylon Bee.
