Sylvain Distin has already shown the world that he's a pretty apt Twitter user when the right situation arises. 

On Monday, a few Liverpool Twitter users decided it was the right time to bring up an old clip of the Everton man's blunder against Liverpool.

The ever savvy Distin decided to respond to the fans and did so in a manner that will make any non-Liverpool supporter chuckle.

Liverpool fans need not be reminded of the word "slip," but for those who have forgotten, he's of course referring to when Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard slipped and lost possession at Anfield, leading to a Chelsea goal that put a huge damper on the Reds' title charge.
