Twitter Shmitter

Gawd, here’s another wretched invention that’s destroying civilization.

p.s. Hey you kids, get off my lawn!

  1. somebody actually told me i should tweet them today. i looked at them like they were retarded for a moment and then laughed out loud when i cottoned on to the jargon. for half a second i thought i was being propositioned by my acquaintance. then i realized they were just an idjit with too much thumb twiddling time on the blackberry. i suppose twittering is as good an occupation as there is for all those twits.
