1. Who Tweeted It: Kanye West or Ted Bawno?

    As some of you may have heard, last night Kanye West got some things off his mind on The Twitter . What began as a simple clarification of the name of his woman’s clothing line (“DONDA” – after his late mom) quickly gained steam in a stream-of-conscious frenzy of vainglorious let’s-change-the-world type thoughts that’s had the Interwebz buzzing well into this A.M. Coincidentally, at virtually the same moment Yeezy was goin’ e-H.A.M., ego trip’s own eccentric founder and celebrated Tweeter, Ted Bawno, was doing some e-preaching – and teaching – of his own. In fact, the similarities are so striking we’ve mixed them all up together below and challenge YOU to decipher: Who tweeted it? ’Ye or Ted?
