The Ted Cruz & Grayson Allen Meme Reaches New Level of Absurdity

The Internet can be a frustrating place sometimes, especially when navigating through the endless torrent of nonsense in an effort to distinguish truth from fiction.

However, in many cases, it can also be the gift that keeps on giving.

Anything involving Ted Cruz typically falls into the latter category.

The Senator from Texas and eternal punch line has been compared to Duke's Grayson Allen for years, because ... well ... they look exactly alike.

As you can see, there is a reason this particular meme has endured for so long.

Recently, there was an escalation, as noted Cruz tormentor Deadspin requested proof of the Senator playing basketball.

Apparently, Cruz enjoys hooping it up with his fellow senators in a weekly game, despite the fact that he identifies a basketball hoop as a ring.

What follows are the results of the Deadspin request:

Oh, that Teddy is incorrigible, although there is a very good chance this was sent by a staffer and not Cruz himself.

But wait, there's more.

Deadspin, along with seemingly most of America, are not big fans of Cruz, but this response just seems bitter.

There is a very special indignity to losing a tweet war with Ted Cruz, so this is not exactly Deadspin's proudest moment.

Meanwhile, as long as Allen can stop tripping his opponents and actually stay on the court, these fun comparisons will no doubt continue.

Oh, and apologies to Grandpa Munster, as well as any other Ted Cruz doppelgangers out there who may be feeling slighted.
