Major Garrett's Tweets Take A Turn For The Inscrutable

06/13/2010 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Last week, I made note of how heroically Fox News's Major Garrett was holding it down in Prague, quaffing some beers and mojitos, watching the Padres play baseball, and still sharply covering the end-of-the-week newsdump, like a boss!

Today, however, I'm not at all sure what's going on:

Whoa, did he overdo it? Is he speaking in tongues, phonetically? Is this some high-concept satire unfolding? Maybe he's using a new iPad, or something? Or trapped in a David Lynch movie? NO IDEA. The stories he links to are still informative, though! Obviously, Twitter is changing the face of journalism.

UPDATE: I think that maybe the DNC's Hari Sevugan has got this all figured out:

(Actually, I could totally see Garrett doing this, so if it's not the real explanation, let's just pretend it is. Also, maybe it's Finnish?)

MORE UPDATE: Ha, yes, it's Finnish: From top to bottom, it reads, "Nuclear Weapons Summit Documents," followed by "new information" twice, and then "interesting," four times. Hyvin luihu, Major! Kiitos, commenter!
