Ryan J. Reilly, a reporter covering the Ferguson fiasco for a news aggregator whose title deserves to be referenced with a mocking sophomoric rhyme, but I don’t feel like making an effort, posted a photo Sunday morning on Twitter of some earplugs lying on the ground, with the caption, “I believe these are rubber bullets, can anyone confirm?”
Of course, this was met with a deluge of well-deserved ridicule and many delightful digs featuring the tag #CanAnyoneConfirm?
