Ochocinco Goes Twitter Loco

When it comes to the new technology that is Twitter, Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco reminds us of a kid who found a box of firecrackers in the trunk of his uncle’s car.
He knows damn well he might end up blowing off a finger or two.  And if he does he’s gonna have a damn good time doing it.
Tonight, Ochocinco went on an extended string of “yo mama” jokes (in 140 characters or less), with a periodic “yo daddy” joke and one off-color “knock knock” gag that might be enough to divert Sarah Palin’s attention from David Letterman.
The whole thread is right here on Ochocinco’s Twitter page.
Though we’re not sure he “gets it” when it comes to having sustained success at the highest level of his chosen sport, Chad is a character, and the NFL needs more guys like him.
UPDATE:  Actually, we just realized he took a shot at us, too.  “How can they be called pro football talk when none of them are or were pros?” Chad asks.  Well, Chad, how can you be called “Ochocinco” when you ain’t Mexican?

    Actually chad was tolerable, albeit goofy, before all the contract / holdout crap started.
    It was interesting watching his cuz try to talk him off the ledge in an “interview”.

    Chad Johnson was so ugly as a child his mother had to feed him with a slingshot!!!

    Well, Chad, how can you be called “Ochocinco” when you ain’t Mexican?
    ==========================================
    Shouldn’t it be “Ochostinko”? Or is that “OchoStanko”

    You know what?
    I really think Twitter is a great way to get and trade info, socialize, yada, yada, yada.
    But I also think there’s a line to be drawn between the information side and the socializing side, and the media types (and most specifically you, Florio) should start following an unwritten rule of turning your heads when it comes to the socializing part of them.
    Are you asking for the attention by putting it all out there in public? Well, duh. But Twitter is not the media. It’s a strange offspring of media and social life, and like it or not, yeah, things like this are the future. So get used to them. I just hope you guys realize that you should probably keep feeding us the media part of it, and that this isn’t high school and there’s no need to run down the hall and gossip about the things you just overheard Mallory saying to Stephanie.
    If you were at some sort of large party with a bunch of media types and athletes, if you happened to overhear a high profile athlete tell a crude joke, you wouldn’t hurry to write a report about it, would you?
    Same deal.

    Yes, Florio. Only mexicans speak spanish. Way to think that one through…

  7. Katan says: Jun 13, 2009 9:38 PM

    lol, good update.

  8. brauneyz says: Jun 13, 2009 9:39 PM

    What a twit. How many twits till he becomes a twat? What you say – he’s there!

  9. Facts Domino says: Jun 13, 2009 9:44 PM

    Chad Johnson is an idiot no matter the language.

    “How can they be called pro football talk when none of them are or were pros?” Chad asks.
    Och has a point, Mike. Not only are you not a pro, you’re not a football.

  11. theUinBuffalo says: Jun 13, 2009 9:53 PM

    He’s watchin’ you Florio:
    “I love all 9,000 of you guys and girls, i only been on here 2 weeks, WOW, THE BLACK MEXICAN will repay the love with superb play this year.”

  12. Bubby Brister says: Jun 13, 2009 9:55 PM

    And no… Florio said “you aren’t Mexican”, simply because Chad keeps referring to himself on there as “the Black Mexican”. Step away from the podium, Jesse Jackson.

  13. JuicyMelon says: Jun 13, 2009 9:55 PM

    The really funny joke is that Ochocinco is…wait for it…wait for it…washed up. He was once an elite receiver, one of the few in the NFL. However, he has just not had it since he wore that HOF jacket. He has just been horrible since then.

  14. VegasChris says: Jun 13, 2009 9:58 PM

    TWITTER has ZERO credibility.
    It is too hard to authenticate.

  15. MIBucs1982 says: Jun 13, 2009 10:17 PM

    I love the fact that Florio is following a chad johnson twitter and then someone posts the real twitter for chad johnson…journalistic integrity at its finest. Way to check your sources, Florio, lol.

  16. R8ers4evr says: Jun 13, 2009 11:06 PM

    take a shot back at him. im not spanish. but i had to take the courses in college. ocho cinco means eight. five. eighty-five is said 2 ways, and they are both different. this was awhile ago and i never did that great in spanish. but one i believe is ochenta y cinco. and the other is like ochientacinco or something along those lines. so while every1 says ocho cinco means 85 in spanish. it actually means eight five… so ask him why he cant even say his own number correctly. haha.

  17. GlennHauser says: Jun 13, 2009 11:23 PM

    I’m realizing Twitter seriously needs spell check…wow.

  18. GlennHauser says: Jun 13, 2009 11:25 PM

    Click on who Chad is following…looks like the cast of Flavor Of Love.

  19. Nick Swisher says: Jun 13, 2009 11:30 PM

    Wow, GREAT comeback Florio.
    That was sarcasm. Your child could have done better.

  20. deymond says: Jun 14, 2009 12:16 AM

    Yeah, most Spanish-speaking peoples aren’t Mexican, but remember Florio goes to Mamma Mia! and the Hard Rock for culture.

  21. Seahawk4ever says: Jun 14, 2009 12:47 AM

    To bad he ain’t funny. I expected more from him, his jokes suck. One thing is true he is going to be hurt by having 84 somewhere else. That said Branch is chomping at the bit waiting for 2009 season to start

  22. hamburglar says: Jun 14, 2009 2:39 AM

    44-3* (* = actual earned score before Wade Philips insulted the entire Cowboys team and community by kicking a field goal late in the 4th quarter.)

  23. joeyb says: Jun 14, 2009 4:05 AM

    Listen very closely Chad. the reason the site can be called Pro Football Talk is because it involves a group of people talking about pro football. Under your back ass logic it would have to be called Pros Talking Bout Football. Don’t hate, congratulate.

  24. The Jimmy says: Jun 14, 2009 6:39 AM

    “How can they be called pro football talk when none of them are or were pros?”
    ________________
    Ummmm…..because ‘they’ talk about pro football?

  25. palla_ovale says: Jun 14, 2009 7:14 AM

    housh seems bothered by ocho followers as he wrote in his twit.support housh too!!!

  26. Swervinmervin says: Jun 14, 2009 7:52 AM

    Mexicans arent the only people who speak spanish, Florio. And “the black mexican” thing wasnt mentioned in that particular post, so if that was your meaning – it was lost on most people who dont look up to Archie Bunker.
    Bunker also wouldve liked your “aint” remark in response to his “arent.” Keep it up. Your West Virginia ignorance is showing up more and more.

    Yo momma is like a bowling ball. Everyone fingers her and throws her in the gutter.

  28. prmpft says: Jun 14, 2009 8:57 AM

    hahahahahahah…oh man, this was the funniest thing i’ve read all week – good stuff!!!

  29. Walrus says: Jun 14, 2009 9:30 AM

    ““How can they be called pro football talk when none of them are or were pros?” Chad asks.”
    Sounds like an oblique feeler for a position to me.

  30. blitzburgh1 says: Jun 14, 2009 9:31 AM

    My eyes are bleeding from reading that crap.

  31. brasho says: Jun 14, 2009 11:06 AM

    You guys got it all wrong about Mucho Stinko, his name in spanish IS technicall eight-five…. yet it has nothing to do with his jersey number..it’s his IQ. The guy is a total moron and the most surprising fact listed here is not the “yo mama” jokes or anything else, the big surprise is that that dumb SOB can read and write.

  32. Vox Veritas says: Jun 14, 2009 11:40 AM

    “it actually means eight five… so ask him why he cant even say his own number correctly. haha. ”
    Dude, you took college level Spanish and can’t make up your mind whether “eighty five” translates to “ochientacinco” or “ochenta y cinco” in Spanish. It’s the latter, by the way. Literally “eighty and five”. There’s no other way to print it properly, though people may pronounce it differently. That said, “Ochocinco” is not meant to be a number in this context. It’s meant to be his last name. haha.

  33. HgMeng says: Jun 14, 2009 2:59 PM

    Florio, other people speak Spanish besides “Mexicans”.

    We do not need more guys like him. He is a douche to the highest degree. Maybe I am too old school, but put up the numbers and shut up.

  35. Bucket says: Jun 14, 2009 8:03 PM

    Everytime I see the name I have to wonder- does Chad actually think “85” in Spanish is “ocho cinco”rather than ochenta y cinco. Maybe that should be his new name. Chad Ochentaycinco would be Chad eighty-five. “Chad eight five” just sounds weird (in any language).
