Twitter memes are awesome: PSU Riot Edition

The following post has almost nothing to do with college basketball. However, there was no college hoops on last night, and we are kinda-sorta addicted to Twitter.

Unless you've been sleeping under a rock for the past four days, you know what is going on at Penn State. Last night, students rallied together and rioted down Old Main. Not too long after the riots began, a hilarious twitter meme took off. One that, if you have 5-10 minutes to spare, you may enjoy catching up on. After the jump, a list of what other school's would do if they were forced to riot.

(NOTE: Listen, the actions at the forefront of this controversy are down-right disgusting. But we aren't here to discuss or debate that. We just want to shed light on a hilarious twitter trend that consumed our Tuesday night)
