Metta World Peace, the slightly-unhinged NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest, fired off what was clearly the best Memorial Day tweet ever yesterday:

Minutes later, he deleted this and replaced it with, “Happy memorial day … I was still sleep :))) Bout to fire up the grill.. Shout out to the veterans!!!!!!!!!”

Hours later, with people still giving him a hard time, he wrote:

Philadelphia Eagles Helmet

“Hey, it’s not Labor Day… Enough… I partied like three rockstars yesterday…. Woke so twisted I thought I was labor day…Mistake.move on.”

The coolest thing about all this? Metta spent the next few hours re-Tweeting messages from fans about what Memorial Day means to them.
