That one tweet was all it took for Los Angeles Rams fans to consult their inner Hercule Poirot this morning when Aaron Donald simply sent out an emoji of an hourglass.
To try and figure it out, I consulted with Turf Show Times’ official Twitter Emoji Detective and Digital Imagery Analyst: me.
Here are the five things it might mean:
5.) A new contract is on the way
The hourglass clearly represents the time Donald has been waiting for the payday he so clearly deserves now that it’s finally here.
4.) A new contract is not on the way
The hourglass clearly represents the time Donald has been waiting for the payday he so clearly deserves now that he knows it’s not finally here.
3.) He is simply thinking about the construct of time
The fourth dimension has always beckoned the most curious. And while the calendar represents a the existence of time across the span, the clock has always represented the immediate passage of time. The fleeting ephemera of the moment.
2.) He saw an attractive woman with an hourglass figure
Watch out for Instagram thirst traps, folks. Especially if you’re about to make $25m a year.
1.) Aaron Donald is...Immortus
Nathaniel Richards was born in the 30th century of Earth-6311, a reality where humanity never went into the Dark Ages. After centuries of advancement and warfare, peace was brought to the land by a time-traveler from Earth-616 named Nathaniel Richards. Because Richards brought peace to this war-torn future, he became known as the legendary benefactor.
ALL HAIL LEGENDARY BENEFACTOR AARON DONALD NATHANIEL RICHARDS!!!!!!
