Yesterday morning, the Miami New Times published a piece about hometown barbecue. In the piece, they state that Miami smokes Dallas in barbecue. And basketball.
After a passing out from white-hot rage, writer Alice Laussade woke and wrote up a response. Among other things, Alice called for the Miami New Times, our sister paper, to take a big ol' smooch of our asses.
No word if Miami's puckered up, but Alice's campaign to punch Miami New Times in the nards led to Twitter.
She tweeted the following:

It caught on. For the remainder of the glorious afternoon, Dallas-Fort Worth tweeps nailed Miami New Times to the wall with one-liners a la Alice. We're very proud. There were some great jokes for sure (from Observer staffers as well), and after the jump we're picking our five favorites. Thanks for a fun day of work, everyone.
Runner-up is Patrick Michels, for his brilliant one-two punch tweet:
