Behold, the Power of Twitter
Mock it if you like, but here’s a sample of what you’re missing.
From Jim Treacher:
He was called the Lion of the Senate. Not for his white mane or mighty roar, but because he mated without limits and killed without remorse.
And from the sublime to the ridiculous, here is my favorite new feed: Shit My Dad Says. It’s all good, as the kids say nowadays, but here are some samples:
(watching the Little League World Series) “These kids are all fat. I remember when you were in little league…. You were fat.”
“The dog don’t like you planting stuff there. It’s his backyard. If you’re the only one who shits in something, you own it. Remember that.”
“You need to flush the toilet more than once…No, YOU, YOU specifically need to. You know what, use a different toilet. This is my toilet.”
“Don’t touch the bacon, it’s not done yet. You let me handle the bacon, and i’ll let you handle..what ever it is you do. I guess nothing.”
“Your mother made a batch of meatballs last night. Some are for you, some are for me, but more are for me. Remember that. More. Me.”
I want to meet this guy.
I read this last night when you linked to it on the live-blog and thought I’d die laughing. You gotta love a person who’s hit an age when they just say screw it to social decorum and minding their Ps&Qs.Dana (0f0b2e) — 8/29/2009 @ 6:48 pm

Dana – I still feel bad about whatever link that was that I put up that was so bad. I could not remember if I apologized, and wanted to make sure I did.JD (c1b316) — 8/29/2009 @ 7:09 pm
And the “shit my dad says” account is only following one person…LeVar Burton.
I’m sure that says something…but I’m not sure what.
It’s DEFINITELY one of the funniest twitter accts out there – nearly in a class with jtlol.Less (8da0c8) — 8/29/2009 @ 8:09 pm
I’ve been following both feeds. They crack me the heck up.Vivian Louise (e35449) — 8/30/2009 @ 11:37 am
I think dad’s name is Archie.
Only he’s gotten funnier in his old age.

Re: Mr Treacher’s “tweet” regarding the “Lion of the Senate.” I would add the “And the females do most of the work” to the list, to make it still more accurate.
I still don’t get that.Eric Blair (a88004) — 8/30/2009 @ 12:06 pm
JD @ #3, oh heck, thanks, but there is no need to apologize. I recall the name of one of the sites was something about hot chicks and uh, douchebag guys or something, and that made me hesitate, but honestly I can’t remember even having gone there because I was having too much fun at shitmydadsays twitter…Dana (d7c445) — 8/30/2009 @ 1:17 pm
Dana – Oh, that one. http://www.hotchickswithdouchebags.com
