Ten Funny Tweets Derek Re-Tweeted Last Week

Well, it's been another interesting week, gang.

To begin with, the first of an estimated 8,437 debates in the GOP Clown Car Clusterfuck-O-Rama happened. And, as there are something like 613 current candidates vying for the top spot, things were a bit convoluted. So much so, in fact, that this first debate had to actually be split into two separate debates, with only the top ten candidates getting to appear in the prime time debate. And, not especially surprisingly, Donald "You're All Stupid Losers" Trump and his hair ruled the day, despite threatening to run as an independent if he doesn't get treated "fairly". (TRANSLATION: "Only softball questions from MEN, because I don't want top get attacked by Megyn Kelly's vagina-rage.")

"Yo, Jeb!, Imma let you finish, but I just wanna say your brother was the
dumbo dumbest stupid dumb dummy of all time!"
On a much more entertaining note, D23 happened this past week. For those unaware, D23 is Disney's version of ComicCon, but exclusively limited to their own properties, because go to hell, anyone else with anything coming out into the entertainment industry!

This year's big surprise: Walt Disney's reanimated corpse made an appearance,
sporting this snazzy bio-suit that keeps him fresh!
There were announcements about a pile of Pixar sequels, clips from both Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and Captain America: Civil War, as well as appearances by Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp (in character as Captain Jack Sparrow), J.J. Abrams, and a buttload of other folks, and the usual Con fare: Cosplay, prop displays, and people with questionable hygiene, All-in-all, a pretty good time was had by all.

But here, on the interwebs, there were loads of funny happening over on Twitter, and I grabbed some of it to convince you that you should totally go over there and follow these funny folks. (And any others you happen to be amused by!) So let's have a look, won't we?

In no particular order...


And there you have it! Pretty groovy, no? If nothing else, it's a great way to start your week. And to add even more awesome sauce to your Monday, here's another fun clip from the recently cancelled Wits. (It really was a great show, and I'm gonna miss it.) It features Kristen Schaal as Darth Vader!


All the best,
Derek and Bosco
