This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest, Episode 45

Hey.

STUPID:

This is funny because it’s true. If you really were opposed to pants, and you were wearing pants, then you would literally pull down your pants.1

WISDOM:

What smartass kid didn’t immediately say “I want to be a junkie when I grow up!” after seeing that commercial? I know I did. Irony is funny no matter how old you are.

REACTION:

Facebook just puts pictures of people who know people you know in front of your face. It’s weird.

WORDPLAY:

This doesn’t make sense.

STUPID:

This is not strictly true.

WORDPLAY:

I Midnight Dumped this because I couldn’t come up with an actual joke for it, but I think it’s funny.

STUPID:

I didn’t actually do this. It’s just a joke. But I imagine they wouldn’t think it was very funny. But I bet a meth-head would think it was funny. So, know your audience.

STUPID:

I like this one. I chose “putting your yogurt in the freezer for 30 minutes” because it’s something that I really do, but I probably should have used something a little more pathetic.

STUPID:

I think I screwed up with this one too. Maybe “naked in a women’s locker room” wasn’t the funniest place.

STUPID:

This is funny. Retweet it.

WISDOM:

This is a true story. Well, not exactly. My teacher asked the class as a whole, and I leaned over to the girl next to me and said, “Platonic.” She and I thought it was really funny, so we laughed and laughed and were asked to leave the classroom until we could compose ourselves. That really happened.

STUPID:

The ol’ switcheroo.

STUPID:

A rose by any other name…

WISDOM:

See, this is funny because I couldn’t remember the past.

I forgot what I’m supposed to say at the end of these.

  1. Did you ever notice how “pulling down your pants” is really more “pushing” than “pulling”? Observational humor! []
