In what’s likely the only sports result in history that led to jokes about both Nazi invasions and bikini waxes, Germany crushed Brazil 7-1 in Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal, eliminating the host nation.
During and after the game, as you may imagine, Twitter had much to say. And that’s just the English speakers…
Bet a bunch of Brazilians ripping their hair out right now.

I can still win my fantasy matchup if Fred scores 1.5 goals and runs for at least THREE kilometers.

And the saddest part is there's probably no fun ways to cheer yourself up in Brazil

Well done, tech bloggers. Some very nice angles on the Germany vs Brazil meme.

Awkward time to be Nazi war criminal hiding out in Brazil.

Germany just treated Brazil like Brazilians treat pubic hair.

Tomorrow on the podcast I’ll be joined by Shelley Long and Kirstie Alley to discuss where today’s Brazil loss ranks historically.

The 30 for 30 made about this game is going to be so insufferable.

Hate them all you want, but this German victory is a real triumph of the will.
