LONDON - Lady Gaga, fresh from a public presentation of her new perfume Fame at London’s Harrods, paid WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a five-hour visit at the nearby Ecuadorian embassy, where the famous whisteblower has been granted asylum since June.
The meeting between the undisputed Queen of Twitter -- Lady Gaga has recently reached 30 million followers-- and the world's Most Notorious Hacker set the Internet ablaze. On Twitter alone, the sampling of reaction followed several running themes, which taken together remind us that we spend too much time on the Internet.
Bad (Meat) Puns

The Gaga/Assange dinner is interesting to me because Manning is reported to have listened to Gaga while allegedly DLing Cablegate files.

Lady Gaga met Julian Assange and they spent an hour arguing over who needed attention more.

Lady Gaga thought it was all cool and counter-culture-y to visit Julian Assange...until things got real rape-y real quick. #stupid

More meat puns
Also Assange received Lady Gaga in his undershirt? At least put on a cold cuts dressing gown.
