This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest, Episode 56

Have you guys heard of this thing Twitter? It’s weird, wild stuff. Sometimes I tell jokes on there and then I freak out and wonder if anybody understood the joke I was trying to make because, OMG, what if I’m not as clever as I think I am!? So then I post them again here and explain them and This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest.

REACTION:

From a sociological perspective, reality TV is very interesting. From a societal perspective, we’re all doomed.

STUPID:

This is a dumb thing.

STUPID:

I don’t have a social media manager. The people are my social media managers. This is a dumb thing, too. (Although it’s based on something I heard someone say, and I thought it was an interesting idea.)

STUPID:

The part about this that makes it funny is the “United States history” part.

WORDPLAY:

This is really dumb. I don’t even know what this was supposed to mean… Oh, wait. I remember. Because it’s like “hi”-dration. So the opposite of that would be “bye”-dration. I guess that makes sense.

WISDOM:

See, instead of “and it’s all small stuff”. I tricked you. Also, we’re all doomed.

WORDPLAY:

I like this one. It would work better spoken, because of Mike/mic, but I think it still works because the punchline comes up fast. I think it’s good that the punchline hits all three points—open, Mike, and night—and then the kicker is when your brain circles back and thinks about the “join me for laughs” part.

REACTION:

This is a good one, too. (But don’t worry, it’s just a joke. In actuality I use the British spelling of pyjamas.)

WORDPLAY:

See, instead of “cake”.

STUPID:

Whatever.

WISDOM:

I like the flow of this sentence, and I do think it’s a rather charming, folky saying.

REACTION:

See, instead of “one of us”.

WISDOM:

What’s with all the crying all the time, babies? Grow up.

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