Alexander Graham Bell, Home Alone, and Black Friday
Twitter is a wonderful place for one-liners. To be funny on the site, you’ve got to be sharp and practice economy of language. You’ve only got 140 characters to make an impression.
And what better way to wind-down the work day than with a selection of some of the day’s most entertaining tweets.
I’m not as excited for Black Friday as I am for Latino Wednesday.

No, Gordon. I still don’t understand how you “butt dial” someone with the batsignal.

I like to raise the stakes and pretend Home Alone 2 is about Kevin trying to prevent Marv & Harry from doing 9/11.

My dad and I keep breaking up on the phone. I hate AT&T and the fact that he’s no longer in love with me.

In all honesty, I bet it’s kinda fun believing “God” wants you to kill people.
