Welcome to the Internet.

“To the relief of all the world’s nations, a truce has been declared in the (utterly fake and nonsensical) war between President Barack Obama and the Audubon Society.”

The story: The Onion, a satirical newspaper, posted screencaps depicting a fictional Twitter war between Barack Obama and the Audubon Society. It’s weird and hilarious and you should check it out. Anyway, someone at the White House picked up on it, and Obama (or, more likely, a White House PR staffer) tweeted a positive message about the Audubon Society.

The Audubon Society was excited to hear from the White House, as any large nonprofit would be. They retweeted Obama’s message and jokingly announced the end of the Obama-Audubon Twitter feud.

As a result, old ladies have been leaving angry messages on the Audubon Facebook page, alleging that the organization has made a political statement.

What a time to be alive.
