This guy waited seven years to make a Twitter joke

Comic timing is everything when it comes to delivering a punch-line, and one Twitterer knows that more than most.

A Twitter user has waited seven years to drop a joke on Twitter, and it’s actually worth the wait.

@MarcusLepage posted this, his first tweet, way back on April 27, 2009 (beware slow loading):

And yesterday, nearly seven years on from that fabled post, he sent the following, his second-ever tweet:

Bravo, Mr Lepage.

He’s since posted a third tweet, which suggests we might be waiting a little longer for the fourth:

His first two tweets have now been retweeted over 30,000 times, proving that Marcus Lepage could be the internet’s most patient comic.

Unsurprisingly, other Twitter users were quick to congratulate Lepage on his sloth-like witticism:
