Fred and Barney meet The Thing!? How have I drank this much '80s cartoon pop culture without knowing about this!?

Edit: Ahh. A quick Wikipedia search reveals that it's not as awesome as it sounds.

I know.  It's... it's a friggin' cruel tease.

My favorite Civil War era monuments are the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments.

What confuses me about the 280 character limit is that Twitter has admitted that the 140 character limit was arbitrary in the first place. So why are we just doubling an arbitrary number?

Didn't they base that on the old maximum limits for SMS messages?

A character limit is important, because if people on Twitter could have unlimited characters, they might have to start saying substantive things instead of just punchy, meaningless quips that rile people up.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.
