Everyone fell for a joke on Twitter about Paul Ryan listening to Papa Roach

*This is my last resort*

It was an irresistible scene: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, fresh off the crushing defeat of his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, listening to “Last Resort” by Papa Roach as he drove away in a black SUV.

Sample lyrics:

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don’t give a fuck if I cut my arm, bleeding
This is my last resort

Unfortunately, Ryan crying the pain away via Papa Roach after failing to take away healthcare from 24 million Americans was fake news. The joke-turned-hoax blew up fast on Twitter, with the original Photoshop job looking like it came from Justin Halpern.

Lots of people, who we won’t embarrass here, agreed via their own tweets that the kicker, or closing line, on what appeared to be a New York Times story was the newspaper’s best ever.

The actual kicker is a little less exciting.

Papa Roach is a good idea for Ryan, though, or anyone who’s sad they were tricked by Twitter.
