Hawks Owner Alex Meruelo's Love Of Desserts Prompts Twitter Hashtag Party

New Atlanta Hawks owner Alex Meruelo was asked at his introductory press conference to reveal one of his deepest secrets. He thought about it for what felt like weeks before announcing his love of dessert. Not a specific dessert, but dessert. Everybody likes dessert! Of course Twitter had itself a fine old time with that news, with our own Jon Bois kicking off festivities.

Here is the best Twitter joke on the matter, which combines both the best of all desserts (seriously, they're UNFAIR) with a Hawks Hall of Famer, followed by many others that were also fantastic:

And I'm pretty proud of this one, but nobody else liked it all that much.
