Ten Funny Tweets Derek Re-Tweeted Last Week

Oh, boy...What a week. It's been...weird. But not nearly as weird as Dan Hertzfeldt's cartoons, which will comprise the GIFs that I use this week!

This is one of the less weird ones.
Okay, let's just get this out of the way: Angry Orange is now super angry, and he is starting to take it out on his party. Things are looking bleak between them, and...well, here. Let's just have a look.


Part of the problem is that Angry Orange has started really ramping up the talk about how the election is going to be "rigged". This has caused problems for the GOP because they now have to go out there and say that voter fraud really isn't a thing, thereby destroying their ongoing narrative that voter fraud is a thing.

Dramatic re-enactment of an Angry Orange rally where a Democrat wanders in.
For his part, Angry Orange attended the debate last Monday and said that, if he wins, he will have a special prosecutor look into Hillary's e-mail stuff, even though it has already been investigated a bajillion times and little to nothing has been found. Oh, and also in spite of the fact that, as president, he himself cannot instruct or assign a special prosecutor.


This is a guy who wants to be the boss of all of us.

Dramatic re-enactment of the debate.
Speaking of the debate, it was another wonderful show where a deranged lunatic wordlessly stalked a woman. To be honest, I was a little concerned for Hillary's safety. And it turns out I wasn't the only one. But it was also an opportunity for a laugh or two.


Aside from the crazy stalker vibe, some other stuff happened. F'rinstance, since it was a "town hall" format, some undecided voters got to ask questions. It went about as well as you might expect, with Hillary trying to give answers while Angry Orange tried to hump a chair. Here's a brief rundown of some highlights:


There was another unexpected surprise at the debate, in the form of a mysterious, enigmatic, kinda doughy guy by the name of Ken Bone. Immediately after being seen onscreen, he became an instant sensation, only to crash and burn shortly after when his porn preferences came to light.


Hell, even I made a few jokes, including this timely gem.


Stop shaking your head sadly. It was funny at the time.

This is what happens when I try to think of something to tweet.
Then there were tweets. Tweets from Twitter denizens who, as the title suggest, made me snort-laugh hard enough that I wanted to share their humor with you. So what say we do some of that? In no particular order...


And there you have it! Not too shabby.

I have nothing to add. This one explains itself.
Now get out there and have an awesome week, will ya? And to set it off, here's one of Dan Hertzfeldt's awesome short films.


All the best,
Derek and Bosco
