This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest, Episode 70

Sometimes I tell jokes on Twitter and then I explain them here, and This Is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest.

STUPID:

See, instead of “I wish my wife was this dirty.” It’s the ol’ switcheroo. Plus, why’s your wife in prison?

WORDPLAY:

See, level. (This is a funny one.)

STUPID:

This is a joke about communication in the digital age and also Stevie Wonder?

REACTION:

This is about a song. Someone on the internet said, “doesn’t the mere mention of time warping imply that you’re already doing the time warp while contemplating the presumption, thus allowing for a repeat of said act?” To which I responded, “I don’t believe so. If the answer to the proposition ‘let’s do the time warp again’ is yes, then you’d be correct. But if the answer is no, then you wouldn’t. I think.” And of course I was right.

WISDOM:

This isn’t a joke about horrible drivers. It’s a joke about how we all tend to minimize or ignore our own faults while exaggerating the faults of others. Horrible driving is just one example.

WORDPLAY:

I wonder what the origin of that idiom is. Crackers are pretty interesting.

STUPID:

This is a funny switcheroo, too. You think it’s gonna be about me being suspicious of my wife, but it turns out she should be suspicious of me.1 Also, don’t have affairs, people. It’s despicable. Just get divorced like a normal person.

REACTION:

There were these TV commercials about drunk driving that said “Buzzed driving is drunk driving.” So I made a joke about the word “buzz”. Also, don’t drink and drive, people. Just pass out in a gutter like a normal person.

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

  1. I’m not really married, ladies. []
