Slapped with a Large Trout

A funny thing happened on Twitter yesterday. My wiki project that keeps a database of nutrition facts Tweets every 6 hours with a random food from it’s 28,000+ entries. Yesterday, it highlighted trout: https://twitter.com/Wikinosh/status/397241952585801728

Which promptly received an IRC-style trout slap!

So great. Two bots being surprisingly funny. Trout slapping is a meme that started the 1990's in IRC. It warms my heart to see it alive and thriving on the modern web. :-) See also, trout slapping on Wikipedia.
