Twitter user VermillionEli is a stone-cold straight-shooter, a master con artist, and a loyal friend—and it's for those reasons that his recent text exchange is blowing up the internet. After he discovered his friend's boyfriend going into another woman's house, he decided the revelation was a perfect opportunity to have some fun at the philanderer's expense—literally. His prank proves the old saying is true: revenge is a dish best served hot and cheesy.
Let's break down all the elements that make this so brilliant. First, he gets the guy to admit cheating immediately, giving himself all the power. After all, you can't con an honest man. Then, he makes Kyle complicit in the prank by blackmailing him into ordering him a pizza, which he does without hesitation. But this is the best part—reread the language he used here:
He said, "I will if you buy me a pizza…" He told him exactly what he was going to do! He knew that this two-timer Kyle would be too scared to read his text carefully, or would assume it was a typo, and wouldn't realize that he was walking into a trap that he had been warned about.
Eli is truly an evil genius, and a hero of the internet. Let's hope he enjoyed every bite of that $10.49 pizza.
