Ahhhh, the Internet! It's a magical place where all of your dreams can come true and you can go from being virtually unknown to a viral sensation with just one tweet.

Meet Terry Shipman, a 65-year-old Texas man who sent out all of three tweets in his life when he thought, ‘Hey, I’m cooler than all those schmucks at the Oscars, I can take a way better selfie and get way more retweets’.
 
So he set out to do just that. Snapping a pic of himself chilling on the couch with his two pooches, Shipman tweeted, ‘Let's see if we can beat the Oscar re-tweets!’.

It’s unlikely he’s going to surpass Ellen’s 3.2 million retweets, but weirder things have happened. As of this morning, his adorable - and totally random -  snap has 127,995 retweets and counting.

Here's the original (with its current retweet count):

And here's Terry's take:
Brilliant! Now, what are you waiting for? Help raise Terry's retweet count here!
 

Psssttt ! Envoie-ça à ton ami!
