Now that you’re familiar with the term Twitterati (in case you weren’t already), I can go on and tell you about 29 year old Justin Halpern aka @shitmydadsays – the Twitterati whose claim to fame is the funny shit his 74 year old dad says – that he (Justin) one day intelligently decided to start tweeting. Today, Justin boasts over 1.1 million avid Twitter followers who anxiously wait for ‘Papa Halpern’ to open his mouth! And if that’s not impressive enough, he’s also been featured in numerous articles and interviewed by the well known online magazine, Maxim.com.
But the biggest bang is yet to come. His immensely popular twitter account is about to be turned into a TV sitcom with William Shatner [Denny Crane from “Boston Legal”] starring as ‘the larger-than-life dad who speaks his mind.’ WOW, a pretty amazing accomplishment for a 29 year old guy who lives at home with his parents! So folks, if you’ve been striving to accumulate Twitter followers, become famous and succeed by working hard everyday, why keep sweating? Instead, find a wickedly funny family member or friend whose comments you can regurgitate on Twitter, Facebook, Digg and all the other social sites out there.
But seriously though, well done Justin! Awesome idea, amazing dad and some insanely funny shit! You just gained another follower (Moi) on your gigantic list ;).
And to show you just how hysterical some of these comments are, here are a few.
“Nah, we don’t celebrate it. Don’t know who St. Valentine was, don’t give a shit, and doubt he wants people screwing in his memory.”
“STOP apologizing. You’re sorry, he gets it, Jesus. You spilled a glass of wine, not fucked his wife.”
“Everybody’s broke, so here’s the rule for Christmas this year; if you still shit your pants, you get a present. Otherwise tough shit.”
“Son, no one gives a shit about all the things your cell phone does. You didn’t invent it, you just bought it. Anybody can do that.”
“Jesus Christ, Just give the dog his fucking food. Why’s he gotta do a trick first? YOU don’t have to do shit before YOU eat.”
“Tennessee is nice. The first time I vomited was in tennessee, I think.”
“Here’s a strawberry, sorry for farting near you…Hey! Either take the strawberry and stop bitching, or no strawberry, that’s the deal.”
“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.”
