@dogboner Labels Neil deGrasse Tyson a “Dumbass Nerd” for Using Laptop on Subway

Neil deGrasse Tyson may be the smartest man on the planet.

The astrophysicist is definitely the smartest man on television.

But try telling that to Michael Hale, a Twitter user with the handle @dogboner who recently published a photo of “some guy using his laptop on the train.”

Mr. @dogboner labeled this commuter a “Dumbass nerd” and laughed out loud at the idea of the idiot being online while also being on the subway.

That guy on the subway, as you might have guessed by now? The supposed "dumbass" who Hale finds so stupid and hilarious? Yeah. It was Neil deGrasse Tyson...

And here's the REALLY scary thing:

According to Hale's Twitter page, he's a father. Can we get Child Protective Services to look in on his son please?


Epic trolling on the sarcasm-impaired! @DogBoner is my newest hero. http://gawker.com/how-i-became...


It is a joke!!! Of course he knows who NdGT is!!! Why else would he have taken the picture?!
I know Mike personally (and trust me, the child is fine.) Read his Twitter. It's alllll stuff like this.
Sorry you don't "get" it.


Are you joking about child protective services? It is crazy these days how little it takes for people to suggest taking away someone's children.


I fear for your kids being raised by such a humourless adult.


The fact so few people get that tweet makes it even funnier.


your irony levels are pretty low, Hilton
