I blame Kate Hall for my new addiction as she has opened my eyes to the prolific world of Twitter comedians. She does a blog called “Halloftweets.” In this blog she chooses “Top 10 Funniest Tweets” once a month, and does interviews with twitter comedians called “Beyond the Bio.” She has also edited two books: The Big Book of Parenting Tweets, and The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets which feature the most hilarious parents on Twitter. These books would make terrific gifts for exhausted parents for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any day. Because they are laugh out loud FUNNY!
So now I’m hooked and it’s not pretty.
There is something super challenging about communicating a joke in 140 characters or less. For example, that last sentence was 90 characters so I would only have 50 more to use if I was going to whip it into a quip. Not as easy as it looks.
I thought I’d introduce my readers to the funny side of twitter by sharing some tweets that made me laugh out loud. And of course I’ll slip in a few of mine in the mix hoping you WILL notice. What else would you expect from a shallow person?
Now a few tweets to honor all the mothers out there:
Okay, now it’s your turn. Make me laugh with 140 characters or less. Ready, set, go!
