Sometimes, things are delightful for their simplicity. Cowboys' receiver Cole Beasley's response to a Twitter heckler Sunday was definitely one of those times. Beasley made his first fumble of the year Sunday afternoon against the Jaguars. Twitter user @massot15 thought Beasley needed to know he should hold onto the ball better. Beasley disagreed.

We all know what happens most of the time, when a -- somewhat in Beasley's case -- famous person says something profane, no matter how deserved, on social media. The tweet or post gets taken down, then the inevitable hacking claims surface. None of that's happened with Beasley. Three days later, the tweet is still there, in all its glory. Still there for all coming to see his equally great photo bomb of Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell.

Mr. Beasley, Unfair Park salutes you.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
