Drunk_nate_silver

Those of you out there who tweet may be aware that yesterday 'Drunk Nate Silver' became a Twitter meme with users tweeting examples of how the on-the-nose election prognosticator might behave in various situations if he got on the bottle and got messy.

Dan Levitan's tweet set off the meme riot: "Drunk Nate Silver is riding the subway, telling strangers the day they will die"

Overnight, Second City has taken that meme and run with it, explaining what becoming a web celebrity has done to the NYT numbercruncher.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. It's funny but Nate Silver is gay. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't get into it for the chicks, lol.

  2. Eh, kinda, not so funny. You'd think they'd at least know he's gay now that being gay is officially ok and mainstream.

  8. I didn't particularly find it funny. They could have at least read his wikipedia entry. I certainly agree with Gast and Moz's that Nate is incomparably better than the actor that played him.
