If there’s one thing Ryan Reynolds enjoys doing, it’s being as funny as can be on Twitter.
So when Michael Nealon reached out to the Twitter king and asked for a yearbook quote, Reynolds didn’t shy away, dishing out something truly bizarre.
Would you expect anything less?
Yearbooks over in the US seem like a big deal.
My yearbook from school, in an industrial northern town, was mainly just pages full of penises drawn by 16 year olds. Some of them were even quite artistically detailed. Lots of veins and things. You know who you are Carl Hatton.
But from what I’ve seen, yearbooks in America are taken very seriously and Michael Nealon wanted to make sure his was no exception.
Like Odysseus, he sought hard and far and eventually, it all turned out just right…
GIVE ME A SENIOR QUOTE BITCH I HAVE A DEADLINE

He tweeted Reynolds a beautiful message of appreciation which reads as follows:
GIVE ME A SENIOR QUOTE B*TCH I HAVE A DEADLINE.
While I’ve slaved over crafted letters to idols of my own and heard nothing back, I’m starting to think that I should just call my heroes ‘b*tch’ and they’ll respond?
Because this is exactly what Reynolds did:
Satan is gonna take it from here. https://t.co/I4oBU5A6of

He wrote back to Michael simply saying:
Satan is gonna take it from here.
And then it happened. He got that very quote written just below his name in his yearbook and tweeted Reynolds in thanks.

The tweet was an instant success.
Hell, even Reynolds himself gave it a retweet writing:
Wall Street is gonna take it from here.

Reynolds made headlines earlier this week as news emerged he was at the centre of a campaign to remake Home Alone as a stoner movie – aptly titled Stoned Alone.
Kevin Burrows and Matt Milder wrote the screenplay from an idea by Twentieth Century Fox executive, Matt Reilly, about a twenty-something dosser who misses the plane for his holiday ski trip, and decides to get high at home, only to discover burglars are running amok around his house.
Reynolds clearly loved the idea and is set to produce and potentially even star in it.
As you all know, Home Alone, a much more PG version of the story, starred Macaulay Culkin as an 8-year-old boy, who’s accidentally left behind at his Chicago home when his family flies to Paris for Christmas.
It was one of the years’ biggest hits, grossing $476 million worldwide.
Back in 1990, the tightly-budgeted sleeper hit, Home Alone, astonished Hollywood by holding the No. 1 spot at the North American box office for a staggering 12 weekends in a row.
For 27 years, the $285.7 million in domestic theatrical gross earned by Home Alone, had stood as the world’s biggest single-territory total for a live-action comedy, but Never Say Die overtook it in late 2017, reports Forbes.
