American striker Carli Lloyd stunned Japan by scoring within the first two minutes of the World Cup Final and from there the floodgates were open. WIDE OPEN.
The Americans would jump out to a 4-0 lead in what seemed like a matter of seconds and held on for the 5-2 victory Sunday night to cap their third World Cup title in U.S. women’s soccer history.
While the game’s outcome was never really in doubt, Twitter decided to keep themselves entertained by making jokes about WWII, Hope Solo’s violent personal history, Joe Biden, Alex Morgan’s good looks, Jordan crying, and everything and anything else.
Let’s take a look at the carnage:
Little Boy, Fat Man, and Carli Lloyd bringing the boom.

Why America playing like Pearl Harbor happened two days ago?
— Ahmed Ibrahim (@Ahmedbighead) July 5, 2015
so today I learned WW2 jokes are funny about Germany but not Japan and jokes about 9/11 are funny but not Pearl Harbor.
