When Rep. John Dingell, D-Michigan, retires at the end of his term, Twitter’s going to lose one of its most colorful members of Congress. And the 88-year-old proved it again on Monday.

The Washingtonian magazine released its list of “Best & Worst of Congress” and Dingell earned the “Wisest” title.

And while some would be thrilled with such an honor, it’s not the title Dingell was going for.

Unfortunately for him, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-California, took the “Party Animal” title.

Monday’s tweet was just another in a long list of gems from Dingell.

There was that time the EPA confused him by tweeting about the Kardashians.

He also has been confused by Sharknado

And most recently, upon news of Apple’s new smartwatch, Dingell pointed out he prefers his trusty Casio.
