In third place is Dobbs Ferry native Max Greenfield. The "New Girl" star posted a pic of him standing next to a living legend (among nerds).
For those of you who don't know, and aren't familiar with Lambda Lambda Lambda bylaws, Armstrong was somehow snubbed by the Academy Awards following his portrayal of Booger in "Revenge of the Nerds." And while he more than held his own with eventual Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx in "Ray" and co-hosts TBS' "King of the Nerds" with his "Revenge of the Nerds" co-star David Carradine, it's hard not to remember and celebrate Armstrong's breakthrough role.
This week's runner-up is former Palisades resident Björk, who offers a little poetry and a visual to go with it.

The poem is fine enough — feel free to wear a black beret and snap in lieu of applause — but it's the photo I prefer. In addition to how striking it is, I can't help but wonder if those rectangles were added via Photoshop, or if she was just wearing an extremely uncomfortable dress. Before you completely dismiss the latter scenario, just remember that this is the same person who wore a swan dress.
In the top spot this week is Bedford native Kate Mara. I know what you're thinking: "Wasn't she just on this list a couple of weeks ago?" Yes, and while we try to spread the wealth here for the Hudson Valley Tweets of the Week, when you tweet something like this, you need to top the countdown, let alone return to it.

The visual of Mara threatening a New York Jets mannequin is amusing enough as is, but the joke is twice is funny if you know that Mara's paternal side of the family founded the rival New York Giants.
