This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest, Episode 67

Sometimes I tell jokes on Twitter and then I freak out and wonder if anybody understood the joke I was trying to make because, holy crap, what if I’m not as hilarious as I think I am!? So then I post them again here and explain them so they make even less sense, and This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest.

REACTION:

This is all true. Creepy.

WORDPLAY:

This is a really funny joke. And I feel like I’ve tweeted it before.

WISDOM:

This is all true. Everyone knows by now that the 90’s alternative hit “Ironic” included a number of so-called ironies, none of which fit the standard definition of the word ironic. But I can’t believe I never considered this explanation before. What if it was the ultimate meta-commentary of all meta-commentaries? If that’s the case, Alanis and I have more in common than I ever imagined.

REACTION:

Or are we the worthless ones for watching?

REACTION:

I wonder if this sounds like I ran over a jaywalker. That’s not what I intended. I just meant that stepping out into a street in front of cars is likely to put you in the hospital or the morgue. So don’t do it, because it’s stupid.

WISDOM:

This is a good one because it’s funny and super true, kind of, and also super funny.

STUPID:

This makes no sense.

STUPID:

Sleep apnea is one of those things that I don’t think anyone had ever heard of until a few decades ago. If the medical establishment even knew it was a thing, it certainly wasn’t diagnosed very often. But now it seems like it’s everywhere. Therefore, vaccinations cause sleep apnea, quod erat demonstrandum, you’re welcome.

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