Lance Armstrong Tweets Ball Joke, Wins The Internet

Lance Armstrong's Twitter account can be a source of inspirational messages, random updates on his life and, occasionally, a hilarious joke. While Illinois and Northwestern play in the Wrigleyville Classic at Chicago's Wrigley Field, CNBC reporter Darren Rovell tweeted a joke about a peanut vendor's hilarious sales pitch. The joke, of course, was one that would elicit giggles from the middle school crowd.

Three little words is all it took. Armstrong, if you'll remember, battled testicular cancer -- losing a testicle in the process -- before coming back to win seven Tour De France cycling races. Ever since, he's had a sense of humor about the situation, joking about only being half the man he used to be.

There is absolutely nothing like a good ball joke from a cancer survivor to kick the day off in style. Here's to you, Mr. Armstrong. Your hilarious use of Twitter deserves a slow slap.
