A fake Twitter feed that has fun with Rahm Emanuel's fluency in f-bombs is taking off. The feed @MayorEmanuel has more than 26,000 followers, triple the number of the Chicago candidate's real feed. Even Emanuel says he checks in, and the tweets usually make him smile, notes the Huffington Post. When the election's over, he's pledged to donate up to $5,000 to the pseudo-Rahm's favorite charity if the author steps forward.

Some of the fake tweets:

  • "I have the distinct f---ing feeling that this is going to be a long motherf---ing day."
  • "The next mother---ing ward I visit had better have a f---ing swimming pool filled with whiskey."
As opposed to the less colorful real thing:
  • "Talking with customers at Family Dollar"
