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

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.
