You have to think someone at Liberty University pre-scheduled this tweet to go out earlier today, on the first official day of classes, given that it was posted exactly at the top of the hour.
But considering that the morning began with the school’s leader, Jerry Falwell, Jr., being accused of literally watching his wife have sex with a pool boy multiple times a year for several years, followed by Falwell’s resignation later in the day, the timing was particularly awful.
It’s here! The first day of classes!

Thanks to Twitter, though, the responses were just *chef’s kiss*…
Is tuition cheaper if I watch from the corner of the room…

Being lectured to about morals while Jerry Jr. watches some young kid bang his wife.

I'm looking forward to Mr. & Mrs. Jerry Falwell, Jr.'s motel lecture on how a Trinity is formed.
I don't want to participate, so can I just sit in the corner and audit the class? Glory!

I don’t want to participate, can I just “audit” a course?

Whoever’s running that social media account should really post a link for how long students have to drop out so they can still get the bulk of their tuition refunded…
Liberty’s always been a joke, but anyone who gets a degree from there now better prepare for a lifetime of sex jokes and “pool boy” comments. On the other hand, at least the diploma will make for an amusing icebreaker. It’s not like it was good for much else.
