This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest, Episode 54

You’re looking well. Have you lost weight?

REACTION:

There’s no such thing as a correct amount of favoriting. That said, please favorite this toot.

REACTION:

This is basically true!

WISDOM:

I like this one quite a lot.

STUPID:

I think calling things “the [something] of our generation” is funny.

WISDOM:

Sliced bread usually gets all the credit, but sliced meat is pretty great too.

STUPID:

This isn’t really what an “inside joke” is.

WISDOM:

I think asking “why?” about things that don’t have reasons is a funny thing to do. But in this case, I’m really wondering.

WISDOM:

This is not a joke; it’s just true. If you like music but don’t think there’s good music being made now (or any other time), then you either aren’t looking hard enough or you don’t really like music.

REACTION:

FADE IN:

INT. SAFE HOUSE

PERSON ONE
I’m so glad we made it to this safe house. Now those mobsters won’t be able to kill us.

PERSON TWO
I totally agree. That’s such a relief. Want a beer?

PERSON ONE
Sure.

FADE OUT.

THE END

REACTION:

This is from a TV commercial and it’s just ridiculous. “Highest paid” compared to who? The jurors? The defendant? Maybe they’re higher paid than the bailiff, but I doubt the court reporter is living larger than the judge and lawyers. Although, technically, every professional in a courtroom is “one of the highest paid professionals in a courtroom” because that term doesn’t mean anything.

WISDOM:

Mustaches without beards, on the other hand, are cool.

That concludes this episode of This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest.
