The Best of the Week in Twitter – 04/07/2010

Lessons learned

Trish Mulvihill (@trishm): Today we are learning the hard way *not* to shrug off the expiration date on cinnamon rolls. Oof.

Fashion wisdom

Ben Templesmith (@Templesmith) Also, overweight man with "Hustler" T-shirt on. You impress me greatly.


Matt Fraction (@mattfraction) THIS IPAD IS SO TINY IN MY GIANT GIANT HANDS

Optimism shattered

Brian Reed (@BrianReed) Windows in office open. This is as close as I will get to enjoying the really nice weather. Soon, 10,000% humidity will arrive.

This industry has a problem

Paul Tobin (@PaulTobin) I wonder where comic book conventions rank on a hotel's "How much booze should we stock in the bar?" chart.

Bitter truths

Brian Michael Bendis (@BRIANMBENDIS) i wonder if there will be an ipad app to help the whiney realize thier childhood is over and life changes & the world keeps on turning.

Bitterer truths

Scott Chantler (@scottchantler) But if "Two and a Half Men" goes off the air, what will old people ask me if I've seen?

Technical shortcomings

Fred Van Lente (@fredvanlente) Final Draft doesn't have "Asgard" built into its spell checker. Or "hungover". LAME.

He'll be missed

Chuck BB (@chuckbb) I know you're all wondering if I survived the earthquake… I did not

Fashion wisdom part the second

John Layman (@themightylayman) Back in Milan. White, skintight "No Fat Chicks" muscle shirt making me fashion toast of the city. #Laymantoursitaly


Ryan Stegman (@RyanStegman) What is sadder: That "Boston Public" show alum Joey Slotnick is now doing Staples commercials, or that I know Joey Slotnick's name?


Ryan Kelly (@funrama) Yes, I know I didn't draw nipples on Morrissey. I never draw nipples. Why do men have nipples? As a defense against predators in the wild?

Deeper meaning

Tommy Lee Edwards (@tommyleeedwards) I had a dream last night that Obama was my dentist. He was mean and angry about having to fix my busted & falling out teeth on his day off

A man, defeated…

Chris Eliopoulos (@eliopoulos) You know…all you iPad owners be quiet. I already feel like crap for not having one. I look forward to the 2nd gen to rub in your face. 🙂

three days later:

Chris Eliopoulos (@eliopoulos) I am weak…WEAK!

  1. Ryan Kelly you are so funny and so right
