If there ever was an actor who earned the title of "Absolute Gem" on social media, it's Ryan Reynolds. The Deadpool star is constantly hitting us with amazing social media gems. And when he's not dissing on Wolverine's Hugh Jackman, he's often throwing some shade at his wife. Obviously it's all in good fun but we're totally here for it because his jokes are top notch.
Whether it's providing these amazingly hilarious responses to fans dirty tweets, or golden nuggets about the joys of parenting like this treat below, the man always delivers.

Now you might've remembered this incredible birthday wish Reynolds gave to wife Blake Lively on Twitter that had the internet cackling with joy. It was just too good of a reversal to not laugh at. Maybe he knows what it's like to get owned in front of thousands on the net.
The man is a master of sarcasm and sincere-cynicism, did you expect him to give a standard, Happy Birthday tweet to his significant other? If you thought that, then you probably don't know Ryan Reynolds at all. He's just not your standard comedian and truly a master of coming up with clever ways to make us laugh.
And even though Blake's never been one to shy away from proclaiming her feelings for her hubby, she also proved she can go toe-to-toe with the Happy Birthday jokes, as evinced by the following tweet...
Tit-for-tat. Crop-for-crop. Ryan for Ryan.
People loved Lively's savagery and ability to dish out the same sweet photo-cropping revenge against her hubby once his birthday rolled around.
I can't wait to see what Reynold's response will be. For now, though, Lively's definitely winning the Happy Birthday war. Maybe next year he'll come back even stronger.
