Hey, I’m all for people getting roasted but it should at least be for something worthwhile, don’t you think?
Not something insignificant and not roast-worthy, right?
Check out these tweets from people about folks who got roasted for pretty dumb reasons.
1. Mr. Words.
Years ago when I worked in a large office I used the word ‘trebuchet’ during a conversation with a colleague about castles, was overheard by the obligatory office wankers and henceforth became known as ‘Mr Words’.

2. College boy.
You think you’re better than me?
There is a chap in our village whose nickname is ‘college’ – because he went to college.

3. Be proud of it!
No shame in your game.
I am a non-native English speaker working in a law firm. I have a better grasp of grammar than most of my colleagues and occasionally get called “Dictionary Corner”. I wear it with pride.

4. You asked for it.
And now you can’t shake it.
Once at a YMCA cafeteria in Nottingham, I asked for, “Just a plate of roast parsnips,” and was thereafter Mr Parsnips.

5. Hey there, cowpoke.
I still bet they were cool.
As a teenager in the early nineties I saved up and bought what I thought were an amazing pair of cowboy boots.. to this day if I see any of my old mates from those days they still call me buckaroo 😑

6. The Fonz!
Kids can be rough.
Lad in school wore a faux leather jacket when we were kids. He’s still called Fonzy 30 years later
Another lad in the class wore a coat with a furry hood. He’s still known as Eskimo to this day.
The guy who dared slick back his hair once…. Gringo
Kids are ruthless

8. I was here first!
That was rude…
i wore an orange rain poncho to an outdoor show at prospect park during a storm and some girl who was on the phone trying to find her friends said “Yeah I’m standing next to someone who looks like a fucking traffic cone”

10. Lara Croft in the house.
I guess you had it coming…
I was walking through Lower East Side in tank top, shorts, and boots on my way to a show. I thought I was dressed sensibly for summer, usually kept my hair in a braid so it’d be out of the way. Irish lad passing by told his friends, “fuck me, it’s Lara Croft.” WELP.

11. And…you got roasted.
Once in my early 20s I decided to try a fedora. Was super self-conscious about it, but decided to wear it one night. Got out of the cab, where 2 dude-bros were walking by, and one of them goes, “Hey, what’s the scoop?? What’s the SCOOP, pal? Where’s the big STORY, chum?” 😑😑😑
