How Atlanta Falcons Fans Reacted Last Night

February 6th, 2017 · 2 Comments

By using pareidolia (seeing human faces in inanimate objects), let’s review what happened during last night’s Super Bowl game.

170206a

Then it was tied 28-28!! “Oh no!!!”

170206b

And then when the Patriots won the game in overtime, the Atlanta Falcons fans were not happy. “#@*%^!@!*”

Like Father, Like Sons

Father’s man cave. Notice the well-maintained leather couches.

The father’s son’s room. Completely filled.

161104c

Walls and ceilings are completely covered, thanks to dad’s example.

161104d
