Chad Ochocinco likes to clown around pretty much everywhere. (Except in the final of "Ultimate Catch," when one of the girls clowned too much for even HIM, which was kind of amazing.)
Naturally, when he was at home, chopping up oranges on Saturday night and actually stuck his finger with a knife, he had to let the world know about it on Twitter...
Damn i just got cut, how does this happen the day before a game? WTf!!!Now, people freaked. After all, it's not unreasonable that the Bengals would do something stupid and/or drastic with a high-priced star, like getting rid of him and trying to clean house, right? Well, not exactly, but everyone thought that he'd been cut by the team. (I actually Google'd "Chad Ochocinco" to see if any news items come up. I mean, you never know.) Then he dropped this:
People not cut from the team, i cut my hand slicing some oranges and i got a game tomorrow, not cool!Ocho later wondered how many people he "got," meaning just how many folks got pumpfaked by the tweet. Well, probably a lot.
Good thing for him, he now has a pretty solid built-in excuse if he has a terrible game tomorrow against the Browns.
