Search “#UBC” on Twitter and you’ll probably find more than you bargained for. Highlights include foreign basketball teams, brotherhoods of carpenters, grassroots UK air pistol shooting and Korean bots that talk about pumpkins, castles and eating hope.

Here’s what we got out of 15 minutes of scrolling:

Urbari Basket Club

Desperately in need of champions.

Will you answer the call?

Union Baptist Church

A Georgia church that sends mission teams to Kentucky for some reason.

"Where does the light of God shine the weakest? Where must we bring the Good News?"  "Kentucky."

“Where does the light of God shine the weakest? Where must we bring the Good News?”
“Kentucky.”

Various Korean bots

The ones we’ve found so far include Stacia, Ruellra, RARE, Rumor and BEX. We have no clue what they’re talking about or why they exist (are we talking about Korean Twitter bots or politicians, am I right, folks? Up top).

United British Caravans

Caravans: the best way to kill half your family on a harrowing cross-country death trip since 1836.

"Look, dysentery!"

“Look, dysentery!”

Is that a threat? Is this guy going to take my kids?

Clearance Tents

A subsidiary of United British Caravans. This whole organization is starting to look shady.

You stay the fuck away from kids, Clearance Tents.

UBC Preacher

The senior pastor at a New Jersey church. Tweets are often religious and/or fatherly.

Umarex Boys Club

An organization dedicated to promoting grassroots UK air pistol shooting. Finally.

United Brotherhood of Carpenters

Apparently large enough for a convention in Vegas.

Listen, if FunkyFreshFran is in, I'm there.

Universal Background Checks

This seems like a place where reasonable folks get their news.

FullThrottleLiberty actually made some good points once he stopped simultaneously firing hunting shotguns and Roman candles from his living room window.

Japanese music

Tell me you don't want to listen to this.

Sorry, we have no idea what any of this means
