The Top 5 ‘Pending Larry’ Tweets

We all make mistakes — even big-name companies like Google (NASDAQ:GOOG[1]).

As you’ve surely heard by now, the tech giant accidentally filed its earnings report early[2] — and it was so clearly incomplete, it even included a line saying “PENDING LARRY QUOTE.”

The mishap sent shares down around 9% before trading of the stock was halted. But it also led to some comic relief. Other funny big-time news bits have turned into Twitter accounts — from Romney’s “Binders Full of Women” comment to Clint Eastwood’s chair-talking antics. Google’s snafu was no different, spawning a Twitter account for “Pending Larry” himself.

So while everyone pores over the details of Google’s not-too-hot report — and while Google points fingers at financial printer R.R. Donnelley & Sons (NASDAQ:RRD[3]) — take a minute and enjoy some of Pending Larry’s best quips (so far):
