British Politician Accidentally Pocket-Tweets—And Her Husband Is The First To Roast Her 😂

Stefan Rousseau/PA, Twitter: @GrandpaJem

An accidental tweet is the modern day version of pocket-dialing, and the latest to fall victim to its misfortune is Labor politician Yvette Cooper.

The MP for Normanton and Pontefract's tweet, reading simply “K", is hapless tweeting in its purest form – and no one understands that fine art better than her husband Ed Balls.

The former shadow chancellor's famous first tweet read simply “Ed Balls", and was enough to have a day named after him – Ed Balls Day.

Naturally then, it was he who lead the charge when it came to mocking his wife's Twitter woes.

Here is how nine others interpreted Cooper's “K".

1. Whatever will be, will be.

2. Hello?

3. Have fun.

4. Arise Sir Ed.

5. Not Numberwang.

6. A political opportunity.

7. Unenthusiastic but politically motivated.

8. Get Down Tonight.

9. Come again?

It might not be worthy of an Yvette Cooper Day this time, but as a certain U.S. president will attest, it just goes to show covfefe.

Let's face it, nine times out of ten, dad is the court jester trying pushing the line when mom is not looking. So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.

Parenting is tough enough, but there is a definite gender gap, having kids of the opposite sex. Boys are gross, girls and loud, and everyone can agree that teenagers are usually awful.
