Feud erupts between mountains, lakes after 40 earthquakes occur near Mount St. Helens

It’s been brought to our attention that several mountains south of the border have been actively squabbling over the past few days.

It all erupted when Forbes published an article about there being 40 earthquakes in the vicinity of Mount St. Helens since Jan. 1, sparking a closer look at what the heck’s going on down there.

Here’s what Mount St. Helens had to say about that:

This tweet was surrounded up by jabs from @MtBakerWA, @MountRainierWA and even @LakeSuperior (yes, a lake).

It’s all part of a Twitter beef that’s been simmering since November, when Mount Baker lost its cool.

Our local volcano, Mount Garibaldi near Squamish, has so far been dormant, not piping up to participate because it doesn’t have a Twitter account… yet. And our local ski hills (@Mt_Seymour, @GrouseMountain and @CypressMtn) are too polite and Canadian to dip their toes into this fiery conversation.

UPDATE: Since posting this story, we seem to have angered the volcano gods.
