Tonight at 11:09 pm Eastern Standard Time I decided that enough was enough.  #McBrideFacts have been prevalent on  Twitter and I was hoping to have a Union-centric themed trend going on.  I tweeted the following:

According to Twitter there have been 47 tweets involving #LeTouxFacts in the last hour but Twitter's search doesn't go back to the beginning of the trend.  After the jump check out some of the best of the #LeTouxFacts...

Have a favorite of your own?  Tweet me at @scotkess or retweet it.  Another way would be to tweet your own, just add #LeTouxFacts to the end of any facts about Le Toux.
