My Favorite Personal Tweets

These are some recent tweets that I’m proud to call my own:

  • “Seven-fourths of wisdom is being good with fractions.”
    – Mother Teresa

  • You know what they say – life is too short to worry about stupid things!
    My Wife: You forgot to pick up the kids at school again.
  • A glass of wine with dinner is a healthy habit. The 8 tequila shots after dessert is not.
  • * The old gypsy flips over the tarot card to reveal a middle-aged man with his head on fire and his balls in a vise *
    Me: Is that good?
  • I blame it all on my mother and my step dad Glenn.
    Mechanic: Apologies. I should have been more specific – open up your hood.
  • * slowly lowers pants to reveal women’s underwear *
    Interviewer: Got it. So conversely what would you say is your greatest STRENGTH?
  • I just found a hundred dollar bill in my pocket, which quickly lead me to the proper conclusion that these can’t be my pants.
  • “I love you.” – Facebook
    “I hate you.” – Twitter
    “Good bye.” – Vine
  • Two wrongs don’t make a right. But three lefts do.
    Cop: * writing citation * Cute. Unfortunately two of those lefts were illegal.
  • “Just because I can’t sing doesn’t mean I won’t!” – and thus karaoke was born
  • Stop saying you love fall and just admit that you have goofy looking legs.
  • Dunkin Donut’s “America Runs on Dunkin” slogan is based on the lesser known “Taco Bell Gives America the Runs” campaign from the late 90’s.
  • Over the last 24 hours I have sent out 200 tweets and 50 retweets. At some point I need to eat, pee, and find my children.
  • When life gets you down – chin up. Because when your chin is down you look like your Aunt Mildred.
  • With great power comes great tax liability.
  • 1. Lists
    2.Okay, maybe I’m not good at lists.

Things You Never Want to Hear… Too!


It’s been more than four years since the first installment – it’s about time for another batch!

“Excuse me sir, can you tell the flight attendant I need a seat belt extender.”

“Good luck trying to find where I hid your anti-anxiety meds!”

“This is your lucky night – the E! Channel is airing a Keeping Up with the Kardashians marathon.”

“Unfortunately you’re out of both toilet paper AND Glade air freshener.”

“Ignore my Dad – he comes on all my first dates.”

“Does this look infected to you?”

“Oh those aren’t crumbs, they’re bed bugs.”

“I need you to Google ‘Uncontrollable Bowel Syndrome’ and tell me if there’s a quick remedy.”

“Just ignore my mastiff – I’m getting him fixed next week.”

“Sorry.  Wrong Hole.”

“We need you to bring in another pair of pants for your son – apparently he’s lactose intolerant.”

“Not only am I a Jehovah’s Witness, but I also sell insurance.”
