A bunch of people took her seriously at first -- of course, she's talking about the Argument Clinic in Monty Python - but then everyone caught on and started posting this kind of stuff:
Folks, listen, this has been bothering me all day. I’m trying to remember a sketch and I can’t figure out who did it.— Gail Simone 💙💛 (@GailSimone) July 3, 2023
Here’s the set-up: a guy walks into an office and asks for an argument, which he pays the pretty lady for, then he argues with a guy. Funny!
Anyone seen this?
That wasn't a "sketch." It was an episode of the Twilight Zone. The argument ended up being over a cookbook or something.— Michael G. @firstname.lastname@example.org Bazemore (@deepwatermike) July 3, 2023
It was at a poker game, with guys arguing over the lyrics to Blinded By the Light. It was performed by The Bert Fershners on their show, The State, with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello. It aired on HBO.— John Dortmunder (@prolly_knott) July 3, 2023
Can't finish without posting the real sketch:
Pretty sure it’s the opening sketch for ‘The West Wing’— PersephoneC 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️🏳️🌈 (@PersephoneC) July 3, 2023
And just a reminder of the beautiful and culturally significant dress Simon wore to King Charles' Coronation in May:
It is #IndigenousHistoryMonth and this is the story of Mary Simon, Canada's first Indigenous Governor General!— Craig Baird - Canadian History Ehx (@CraigBaird) June 26, 2023
Simon was born in Kangiqsualujjuaq, Quebec on Aug. 21, 1947 to Bob, a Hudson's Bay Company manager and Nancy, an Inuk.
Simon lived a traditional lifestyle.
Here's another great thread from Craig Baird:
What a GORGEOUS dress worn by Governor General Mary Simon by Inuit designer Beatrice Dear for King Charles III coronation.https://t.co/kip5NGHZsv— Shauna Néro (elle/she/her) (@MmeNero) May 6, 2023
Next, the replies to this tweet are priceless:
Canada celebrates its 155th birthday today, but the story of the Indigenous goes back much, much farther.— Craig Baird - Canadian History Ehx (@CraigBaird) July 1, 2023
A brief historic 🧵
As early as 50,000 years ago, the Wisconsin glaciation caused sea levels to fall & people moved across the Bering Strait land bridge.
Invisibility cloaks do exist. They put one on every woman when she walks into Long & McQuade.— Rebecca Chambers (@MetisMamaMB) July 3, 2023
Try walking into our local logging industry store 🤣🤣 I just need some saw parts and I'm definitely cloaked as soon as I enter.— Marcie Callewaert John (@marcie_c_john) July 4, 2023
This is great

This is absolutely the correct response to an individual request. Boards would save themselves a lot of headache by publicly communicating this though. Many people are under the impression that they can get accommodations for this and it creates a chilling effect on educators. pic.twitter.com/tW8J3wDpXr— Justin (@justin_buhr) July 7, 2023
Of all the dogs we have had over the years, only one has been terrified of fireworks and thunder, but it was always awful when Ebony would be so upset and quivering and trying to dig her way under the rug to get away from the noise and there was nothing we could do to comfort her. We talked to our vet and got some diazapam that would calm her down - not perfect because it took several hours to work, so from June to September we followed the weather forecasts and set alerts on our phones for thunderstorms, plus we tried to keep up with the news about fireworks displays. Actually, we ended up giving diazapam to both our dogs -- our younger dog Molly started getting anxious and upset in sympathy to Ebony. This spring, for the first time in years, we haven't had to worry about weather because Ebony is now getting older and she is deaf so she doesn't hear the noise anymore. We're so glad she doesn't have to go through this anymore.
These people didn’t go to see Fireworks. They went to the local shelter to comfort the terrified dogs pic.twitter.com/hlSjfUrkRm— Slater Jonathan (@SlaterJonathan4) July 6, 2023
When I was 20, I went as Indiana Jones to a haunted trail and a guy called me "Indiana Jews" and then immediately fell and sprained his ankle and was screaming in pain and the scare actors didn't know what to do so a bunch of skeletons dragged him away.— Ben Crew (@BenjaminCrew1) June 30, 2023
I think about this a lot. pic.twitter.com/qakpZQtX51
