Ten Funny Tweets Derek Re-Tweeted Last Week

Hey there, gang! What a week, huh? It's finally starting to get cold, there were midterm elections in which the Democratic party lost its control of the Senate, Macaulay Culkin was pronounced dead on Facebook (don't worry...He's not really), and the rest of the normal world spent the beginning of the week either trying to avoid a sugar coma from eating their kids' Halloween candy or trying to pry their kids off the ceiling because of it.

Myself, it was a pretty good week. We (Jake, Larry and myself) recorded one of the funniest podcasts we'd done in a long time after an extended hiatus due to my computer issues (we also just recorded one today that's even funnier which will be up Wednesday), and I started planning out my third Holiday Moviepalooza. (More on that later.)

But before I get into any of that, let's have a look at the fine, funny people on the Twitter machine, shall we? And, as always, if you find these folks funny, join Twitter and follow 'em! Or find other funny people! Or both! Look, do I have to explain everything to you?

Anyway, in no particular order...


And there you have it! Pretty groovy, yes? I certainly thought so.

Now, as I mentioned earlier in this post, it's almost time for #HolidayMoviepalooza again!

The way it works is, every year, starting on Thanksgiving Day, I watch one holiday movie each day, until Christmas Day. (By "holiday movie", of course, I mean Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan...Any of those end-of-the-year-holiday-type-things.) There will be classics, such as A Christmas Carol. There will be funny ones, like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Action movies will be watched, like Lethal Weapon. (Look, we went over this last year. Is is too a Christmas movie. If Die Hard  and  Gremlins can be classified that way -- and they will also be seen -- so can a movie where a pre-racist Mel Gibson is a cop...on The Edge!)

This year will be my third or fourth time doing this. But this year Larry and Jake from Here Be Spoilers will be watching the movies, as well. Joining us for several of the movies will also be my girlfriend Tonya. (You may remember her from last year's Christmas Eve Self-Pity Extravaganza.)

As it's still in the planning stages, I can't really offer more information just yet. There will be updates in the upcoming podcasts leading up to the start of the whole thing, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, why not start your week out by watching four minutes of Nicholas Cage freaking out a lot? (NSFW)


All the best,
Derek and Bosco
