JFK Turtles Spark Twitter Hilarity (TWEETS)

The JFK airport is experiencing some flight delays as they attempt to clear about 150 turtles from the runway. While they wait to be relocated, however, the turtles have taken to Twitter to pass the time and clear up any suspicion of evil intent.

According to their digital representation, they're not trying to cause problems, they just partied too hard the night before and took a wrong turn on their way to lay eggs on the beach. Understandable, right?

As if that wasn't stressful enough for the little guys, Port Authority spokesman Ron Marisco told MSNBC that the staff has been working non-stop since the early morning to get the runway cleared.

What have we learned from all of this so far? That the space between event and meme has officially shrunk to zero.
