This supermarket Twitter account just killed it in a lengthy pun-off

Bow down before the Gods of punning.

BRITISH SUPERMARKET SAINSBURY’S gave a lesson in how to run a corporate Twitter account this morning when it entered into a lengthy exchange with a customer about fish.

Customer Marty Lawrence, who describes himself as a ‘punslinger’ in his Twitter bio, kicked things off with this tweet.
