​Jason Isbell Is to Blame for Those "30 to 50 Feral Hogs" Going Viral
In the midst of multiple mass shooting tragedies in the United States this weekend, the internet still managed to find something to laugh about — feral hogs, 30 to 50 of them to be precise. And it turns out we have Jason Isbell to thank for that.
           
The musician sent out a sombre tweet on Sunday, August 4, saying: "If you're on here arguing the definition of 'assault weapon' today you are part of the problem. You know what an assault weapon is, and you know you don't need one."
 
Some dude named William McNabb replied, "Legit question for rural Americans — How do I kill the 30-50 feral hogs that run into my yard within 3-5 mins while my small kids play?"
 
From there, the internet ran rampant with jokes and memes about that very specific amount of wild pigs chasing young children.
 
Isbell himself even replied to McNabb, suggesting that a technique similar to that of blasting Metallica to scare off cougars might work.
