@tcql It's like you get me. You *really* get me! 😭
This is a great metaphor for the Fediverse
@cypnk Except in this case 3/4 of us are Lord Buckethead

@troubleMoney Ah. Fair point. The Dabbing was on point though

@TheyCallMeMo It was the June 2017 general election in the U.K.
Lord Buckethead got 249 and promptly decided to dab in that pose when the results were announced
