Here is a thing Jamie Deen tweeted about his mother’s appearance on The Today Show this morning. The first part is pretty straightforward, but…what’s going on with that hashtag? Is Deen saying Paula’s apology made him tear up, like onions? Does the Deen family just really like onions? Is this a Southern thing?! Your guess is as good as ours.

This is the scandal that launched a million hashtags, but #onions just might be the strangest.
