Just when twitter was becoming mainstream and frankly a little bit boring, someone came along and broke the clutter.
No one can ever predict what makes something catch on, and surely this one is no exception. Here is the twitter page for @shitmydadsays
Claiming to be a 28-year-old living with his 73-year-old dad who is ‘awesome’ he has decided to ‘just write shit he says’. I would love to believe this is for real, but even if it is not, it is so damn funny I could not help but share.
Which seems to be the sentiment all over the web. I learned about this from my friend Liz, on Facebook. When I started following him yesterday morning he had somewhere in the neighborhood of 23,000 followers. Quite impressive.
Unless of course you consider that fact that this evening he is up to 88,839 followers and going strong. I love the idea that there are 88,838 other people out there who share my sick sense of humor and find this funny.
So far our friend has only sent out a single tweet a day, counter to the running conversations that are commonplace on twitter. AND he only started this account on August 3rd!
Here are my favorites so far:
“The dog is not bored, it’s a fucking dog. It’s not like he’s waiting for me to give him a fucking rubix cube. He’s a god damned dog.”
“Your brother brought his baby over this morning. He told me it could stand. It couldn’t stand for shit. Just sat there. Big let down.”
“Love this Mrs. Dash. The bitch can make spices… Jesus, Joni (my mom) it’s a joke. I was making a joke! Mrs. Dash isn’t even real dammit!”
and this loving parental entry:
“It’s watering plants, Justin. You just take a God damned hose and you put it over the plant. You don’t even pay rent, just do it. Shit.”
I am not sure what made this guy tip, or why I and so many others find him so funny. But we do.
Can’t wait to see what kind of deal he cuts from this.
Not unlike Stuff White People Like who landed a book deal in record time and now an internet TV show, sometimes the most ridiculous things hit a chord and catch on.
As The Magnet For The Asburd, I gotta love that!
