You see, I like Twitter. A big part of the reason I like it is because of its 140-character limit for posts. Oh, sure, you can cheat that by using platforms such as Long-Tweets or Twit Longer, but I consider that cheating the system. There's a certain amount of thought that has to go into compressing what you want to say into one or two sentences and still making your point.
It also makes Twitter a perfect place to write some one-liners.
I've spent many hours laughing out loud at the people on Twitter that are way funnier than I could ever hope to be. And, as a fan of these folks, I like to share their jokes on my podcast. And now I'm going to share them here, too. Let's have a look, shall we?

Cat is hissing at nothing in the kitchen. Based on horror movies I've seen nothing good can come of this, but I'm a white guy so I'll stay.— The Gay Farmer Guy (@thegayfarmerguy) September 1, 2013

I make fun of people Instagramming their food, but I forget that, during the Renaissance, lots of artists were just painting bowls of fruit.— Aaron Fullerton (@AaronFullerton) April 9, 2013
And there we go. If you are already on Twitter, I would definitely recommend that you follow any of these funny folks. (And me, if for no other reason than to make a reasonable comparison of what funny is and what it is not.) If you're not on Twitter, then go. Now. Sign up. And show us your funny.In the beginning there was nothing, and it was good. Everything since then is one colossal fuck up.— Bucky Isotope (@BuckyIsotope) February 20, 2014
All the best,
