Jimmy Fallon – man after my own heart – both loves Twitter and knows how to use it to his advantage. This is no small feat (So many politicians could benefit from a social media course. Or seven), and on Wednesday, he challenged his legion followers to tweet him their best story with the hastag #MyWeirdNeighbor.

Now, this is a topic most of us can relate to. Me? My seventy-year-old neighbor enjoys doing all of his yard work sans shirt, and the woman who lives across the street has so many twentysomethings in and out of her place that she’s either selling drugs or running the Bernie Sanders campaign.

A friend of mine had a neighbor show up, look her in the eye, and just whisper “you need to stop the weirdness” before stomping off. I mean… pot, kettle?

Without further ado, I give you my favorite 15 responses to Fallon’s request – at least, at the time of this article. You should probably check out the hashtag search yourself, because there are quite a few gems.


#1. I feel like this one might be the winner. And it 100% demands an explanation.

Oh, and it’s preteen Leo, which makes the entire thing infinitely creepier. Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 8.19.14 PM


#2. Smart or weird? Sometimes it’s SUCH a fine line.

#3. The real question is, did the rabbit find its way into a delicious stew? Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 8.21.45 PM
