New York Mets fans may be in the middle of another lost season, but at least they still have a sense of humor. Mets devotees hilariously trolled San Francisco outfielder Hunter Pence as his Giants took on New York this weekend.
Mets fans held up various interesting signs about Hunter Pence throughout the Giants series. The trolling began on Friday night, when New Yorkers accused him of eating pizza with a fork and putting ketchup on a hot dog. We happen to think ketchup tastes good on a hot dog, but whatever.

But the Hunter Pence trolling really went viral on Sunday, when new signs appeared at CitiField. This time, they accused the outfielder of such “crimes” as being a poor parallel parker and enjoying Godfather Part III. There’s no shame in being bad at parallel parking (after all, who still remembers how to do it after their driving exam?). But liking Godfather Part III is a pretty unforgivable sin.
Perhaps the best part of this Hunter Pence trolling saga was hearing the Mets’ television announcers, Keith Hernandez and Gary Cohen, struggle to understand the point of the signs. It appears we have found the ultimate example of the modern generation gap.

But this Hunter Pence trolling did not have the desired effect for Mets fans. The outfielder went 3-for-5 on Sunday with two home runs in a 9-0 Giants win.
