New Orleans experienced an awkward blackout in the middle of Super Bowl 47 last night, with Twitter stepping up to shine the light of lulz into the darkness.
The biggest question of the Internet during the blackout last night was “who is to blame?” Due to a recent lip-syncing controversy and an obvious patented hatred for all-things “Murka,” some blamed Beyonce for the blackout. Due to the New Orleans locale, memories of Katrina, and his reputation as the most hated US president in recent history, others pulled out and dusted off George W. Bush to shoulder the blame.
Hahahahahhaa BEYONCE BLEW THE FUSE! GENIUS

I think Beyonce drained all the power from the southern grid. — Gary Sinise (@GarySinise) February 4, 2013
I’m sure this power outage is somehow residually George W. Bush’s fault.
