Talking to your friends on Twitter about the mundane activities of your sad life is so 2010. Following celebrities on Twitter is so 2011. The new trend for Twitter is to become friends with people BEFORE they become celebrities and get millions and millions of followers!
“But how do I do that, Adam?” You ask while you sit on your toilet and read this post from your phone.
I’ll tell you how. Follow these people right here. Their tweets will make you laugh, and then you’ll retweet them, and then your friends will laugh, and you’ll be a hero. A HERO. Don’t you want to be a hero?
First, of course, there’s me. I’m an author (albeit self-published), a comedian (albeit very amateur), a lawyer (albeit unlicensed and incapable of practicing law), and a sex machine (albeit rusty and bloated). Why aren’t you following me?
What I lack in free time I make up in willingness to take drugs that keep me from sleeping.

Then, if you’re ready – really, really ready – to be a hero – follow the rest of these comedians. I went through thousands – okay, hundreds – okay, tens – of Twitter accounts for local Orlando comedians to find the cream of the crop – the sour, cynical, dark, twisted cream of the crop. These comedians are the funniest out there, unless they’re drunk, in which case they’re even funnier. They are intelligent, pessimistic, misanthropic, and will be the people you’ll be reading about in the pages of Variety someday. Or in the obituaries and subsequent interviews with yours truly. Either way:
If I could have one super power, it would be making people believe that cartwheeling is the only viable method of transportation.

i feel like us white people are missing out on something by not calling each other "round eye".

Before 9/11, anytime someone said "Never forget" they were talking about that time Ted Danson did blackface.

There isn't a joke to be made about this honey boo boo kid that hasn't already been written and played by god.

Don't want much. Just want to be rich or smart enough to create people so tiny that five of them could rollerskate on my back when it hurts.

How do you make a New York style hot dog? Take a hot dog and throw it away. Then, go get a pizza.

My son just used the number eleventeen. I went out and showed him how to start the lawn mower. Figured he might as well start training.
