INTERNET BAIT-ABLE MOMENTS

Bill Murray Is Your Minor League Baseball Rain Delay Entertainment

By

If it wasn't for the fact that no one will ever believe me I'd float the theory that Bill Murray has glanced over <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/webculture/2012/05/bill-murrays-10-most-internet-bait-able-moments/" target="_blank">his Internet Bait-able Moments</a> and decided to get his troll on, proceeding to partake in all sorts of eccentric activities that the web is destined to love and rendering the list I made just weeks ago woefully outdated and incomplete in the process.
