Great Minds! Lil Wayne and Arianna Huffington Make Same Joke at Super Bowl

Rapper and lyrically avowed Packers fan Lil Wayne joined Wall Street Journal reporters Aditi Kinkhabwala, Jason Gay and Reed Albergotti in the newspaper’s live blog of the Super Bowl last night.

“Yoooo I’m in my suite in the endzone Cheesehead on Go Packers Go!!” Lil Wayne wrote.

His commentary was sparse and slanted but the “cub reporter,” as Jason Gay called him, added some much-needed enthusiasm.

“Bout to put some Cheeze on that RotleisBURGER!!!” he wrote.

Weirdly, new AOL editorial director Arianna Huffington made the same joke, casually tweeting from Tim Armstrong’s suite in Cowboys Stadium, as though she were not in the middle of signing a business merger from inside America’s national house of worship, on the holiest day of the year, surrounded by a group of wounded veterans.
