10. Twitter is having a lot of fun with it according to Mediate

Twitter Confused By Senator Chuck Grassley’s Dead ‘Pet Pidgin’ Tweet: ‘A Key Senate Voice Weighs In’
By Zachary PetrizzoSep 19th, 2020, 6:31 pm

United States Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent out a curious tweet seeking to find the owner of a dead “pet pidgin” found on his front lawn Saturday afternoon. The tweet left much of verified Twitter confused.

“If u lost ur pet pidgin /it’s dead in front yard my Iowa farm JUST DISCOVERED here r identifiers,” Grassley tweeted. “Right leg Blue 2020/3089/AU2020/SHE ///LEFT LEG GREEN BAND NO PRINTED INFO.”

“Sorry for bad news,” he added.

Twitter users quickly had some fun at the fact Grassley billed the animal as a “pet pidgin,” while others jokingly claimed it was their pet.

29. I could imagine the one about the dead deer...

could have been about that politician that ran over a guy and killed him and said he thought it was a deer. But no idea why Grassley would be talking about it, unless he just did the same thing. (Just in case: no accusation. Just mentioning a wild-ass possibility.)

Used to communicate among two or more groups which do not possess a common language?

33. Let's not mock him right now. He's rumored to be a possible crossover vote

with regard to timeline for the next SC confirmation. We will need his vote quite soon!
