The message included a picture stitch of five women, each with a strikingly similar face. Could it be that these “beautiful baby mammas” are all the same person?
Yes, the pictures Jenkins tweeted were all of his wife, Morrisa Jenkins—a distinction some Twitter users missed.
@MalcolmJenkins FIVE baby mama? Sounds like you'll fit right in in Philly— Chris Dris (@CDrisc11) May 11, 2014
Jenkins later cleared the air, explaining his tweet was a joke.
To all who didn't get the joke, This is my wife and only child!!!! lol Hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day! pic.twitter.com/rMUEq0zyH8— Malcolm Jenkins (@MalcolmJenkins) May 11, 2014
You can’t take some people anywhere, can you? Explaining the joke kills it, especially when the punch line is sitting there plainly for anyone who takes the time to think about it.
With that said, this is the first reported occasion of any human reading two words of something on the Internet and hopping down to write a hasty comment. It’s nigh unprecedented.
As for Jenkins “fitting in” with Philadelphia, I’m sure he and his family will enjoy themselves in the City of Brotherly love. The former Saints free safety comes in as a relatively unheralded addition to the Eagles secondary, but certainly has made a splash with this jibe.
Keep clowning, Jenkins, and don’t worry when people don’t bother to read the whole thing. Trust me, it happens a lot these days.
