In case you missed it, a tweet by the San Miguel Sheriff's Office has recently gone viral due to its hilarious (and confusing) description of a "large boulder the size of a small boulder".
On Monday, January 27, a boulder fell and blocked a lane of the road on Highway 145. The San Miguel Sheriff department tweeted a very important and informative message to warn people about the incident, except they made one simple and confusing mistake. The tweet describes the boulder as a "large boulder the size of a small boulder."

Who would win in a fight? A large-boulder-sized small boulder or 20 small-boulder-sized large boulders?— Paul 👻 (@pablo_honey1) January 27, 2020

Thank god you took a picture of it, as I’m apparently not familiar with boulder units of measure. 👌🏻— Mindy Robinson 🇺🇸 (@iheartmindy) January 27, 2020

Since the initial tweet, the rock puns and hilarious tweets have taken the internet by storm, and it's clear to see why.
The author of the tweet has since come forward and owned her mistake, adding a nice little pun in there as well:
Here is what Susan meant to say in the tweet, which we have all been dying to know:
Large boulder the size of a small CAR.— Susan Lilly (@susanlilly) January 29, 2020
We just can't get enough of this hilarious mix-up, and since the boulder has been cleared and nobody has been injured, it's fun to laugh at the entire situation.
