Monday’s Supreme Court ruling safeguarding abortion rights was a major victory, finding that Texas was imposing a substantial and undue burden on both abortion providers and people seeking safe and legal abortion care. And what better way to celebrate than a winky tweet about all the people you’re gonna go jizz into?

That was, anyway, the evident logic over at The Daily Show, where somebody tweeted this:


Fuck yeah, dude! Love 2 knock people up now that the Supreme Court ruled I don’t have to wear a condom or whatever! [Chest bumps, synchronized guzzling of Monster/Jäger blend, insistence that you’ve definitely had sex before, hope that no one will see your painful, crushing loneliness and excruciating self-consciousness, jerk off, sob.]
