Whatever happened to predictability?!
As reports broke that actress Lori Loughlin was one of dozens of people charged by the FBI in an elite college admission scheme, many Twitter users began sharing jokes in reference to the former “Full House” star’s character: Aunt Becky.
While the jokes are hilarious, the charges are not. Loughlin was allegedly part of a scheme of more than 40 defendants who paid up to $6 million in bribes to ensure their children were accepted to schools such as Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and Harvard.
As Loughlin’s TV husband, Uncle Jessie, would say: Have mercy.
At any rate, while that story continues to develop, let’s enjoy more Aunt Becky jokes, shall we?
Honestly if it turns out Aunt Becky is deeply enmeshed in the bagmen culture of college basketball everything will be worth it

My day was going seemingly as planned until Aunt Becky was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud in an alleged college entrance exam cheating scheme. pic.twitter.com/W7bd5mTGIN
