Something about these tweets rings true


by Scott “Galanty” Miller

I’ve tried a million different lotions and creams and yet I STILL can’t get rid of these ugly arm-things sticking out of my shoulders./My wife is pregnant with twins! We’ve decided to name the children “Oprah.”/ I wait to go trick-or-treating until the day after Halloween because it’s less crowded./ Looking forward to the end of the election — so we can stop hating each other and get back to ignoring each other./ This year, instead of Thanksgiving, I’m going to have a “Friends-giving.” In other words, I’m spending the day alone.

I’m unable to figure out what’s going on in the mind of someone who buys a celebrity cookbook./ I don’t bother reading the label of my prescription medication since it’s someone else’s prescription, anyway./ I think and talk in English. But I PONDER in Latin./ I don’t think of it as getting “fired.” Rather, I see it as that my job was murdered./ I donated five-thousand dollars in casino chips to the Gamblers Anonymous Foundation. They wrote back, thanking me for the ten grand./ MyPillow is the official pillow of the National Sleep Foundation. My question: What’s the official blanket?/ It’s a Bonerful Life is my all-time favorite Christmas movie porn parody./ Maybe I’m just being optimistic, but I believe in my heart that 2020 will be much better than 1020.

I’m an involved parent and I’m concerned about the people educating my kids. That’s why I actively follow my son’s teacher’s eHarmony site./ I went on a blind date with a lovely woman, though I thought it was weird when she started to hit our waiter with a red flag./ It took me six months and a small fortune, but I finally got tickets to see my daughters’ second grade class’ production of Hamilton./ OMG I just found out this woman I’ve been dating for the past two weeks is married to Facebook./ I would definitely rank the Liberty Bell among the nation’s top 100 bells/ I just downloaded a great new app that allows me to find out who “unfollowed” me so I can kill them./ “But we have no more MONEY for commercials!”- GEICO accountant “Okay. How about if we do a sumo wrestler figure skating?”- GEICO CEO/ I keep my money under my mattress, which would probably be safer if I didn’t keep my mattress out on the street./

Movie tickets have gotten so expensive that I can’t afford to feed my kids. What?! It’s not like I’m gonna stop going to the movies./ Valentines Day? Uh, “thanks” Hallmark. But I don’t need a special holiday to tell my friend’s wife how much I love her./ I’ve decided to take a vow of silence for the next few minutes./ Don’t forget! Next Monday is National Tuesday Day./ I swore to my mistress on her deathbed that I would never cheat on my wife with any other woman./ I decided to let my son play football. Hopefully, he won’t suffer a head injury because that would probably make his concussion worse./ In Arctic regions, the way people have angry political arguments is to rub noses./ My young son was unable to participate in the tournament. But he received a “participation trophy,” anyway, because at least he tried./ I’m so glad nobody has ever invented time travel. I fear that too many people would go back into the past and have sex with themselves./ Flex Seal is our generation’s WD-40./ How do I adjust my privacy settings so my personal info, posts, and photos are exposed to people who don’t want to look at them?/ I finally had to put a sign on the front door of my house: “Bathrooms Are for Guests Only.”
