The Best Tweets of the Week 10/16 - 10/23

Every week I go back and post my favorite tweets I got during the preceding week. Want to be included in the lunacy? Follow me and be funny, interesting, or threatening! As always, here are the rules:

  • I skew toward the amusing
  • I won't publicize anyone's stuff if they are locked unless they give me permission (the KChop rule)
  • @ replies rarely get on here unless their self explanatory and don't need set up
  • I do love me the setup and punchline stuff, but if they span over multiple tweets, I'm not inclined to include them.
  • Diplo is immune to any of these rules (and now so is Yoko Ono).

Ok, let's go to the tweets...

bumpcrud Most exciting part of my work day is the crucial seconds before finishing the burrito butt, where you aren't sure if the fold will hold.

Xytrex In retrospect quoting Kurt Russell to the officer that pulled me over was a bad idea. Apparently he's never seen Big Trouble In Little China

VaginaDrum Have an interview at 1. I'm ready over an hour early. I guess changing into a shirt without pizza stains doesn't take as long as I thought.

PFTompkins By now I should have abs of steel considering the full-body convulsions I experience trying to Sonicare my back teeth.

davio1962 Time to decorate the house for Halloween. Which for us means spruce it up in order to reduce the overall effect to merely "creepy".

trixieboots How to make eggs edible: add cream, cheese, bacon, avocado, and gobs of butter. This recipe also works for cardboard, tree bark, and socks.

PFTompkins Thought I saw veteran character actor Bob Dishy at the gym. I was mistaken. It was merely one of Hollywood's countless Bob Dishygängers.

RexHuppke "Sir, have you been drinking?" "Please, officer. My family and I have been at a pumpkin farm. Of course I've been drinking."

paulscheer Mayor McCheese is an elitist. How can he rule over a town full of people that eats burgers when he himself is a Burger! Stop Burger Genocide

GooseHonk If you a person who spells it "magick" I'm going to go ahead and assume there are at least 2 velvet capes tucked away in your closet.

summersumz Boyfriend crashes his bike, has road rash. As I assess his wounds, my chief concern turns to what positions are still in the playbook.
