This is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest, Episode 70

Sometimes I tell jokes on Twitter and then I explain them here, and This is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest.

STUPID:

See, instead of “I wish my wife was this dirty.” It’s the ol’ switcheroo. Plus, why’s your wife in prison?

WORDPLAY:

See, level. (This is a funny one.)

STUPID:

This is a joke about communication in the digital age and also Stevie Wonder?

REACTION:

This is about a song. Someone on the internet said, “doesn’t the mere mention of time warping imply that you’re already doing the time warp while contemplating the presumption, thus allowing for a repeat of said act?” To which I responded, “I don’t believe so. If the answer to the proposition ‘let’s do the time warp again’ is yes, then you’d be correct. But if the answer is no, then you wouldn’t. I think.” And of course I was right.

WISDOM:

This isn’t a joke about horrible drivers. It’s a joke about how we all tend to minimize or ignore our own faults while exaggerating the faults of others. Horrible driving is just one example.

WORDPLAY:

I wonder what the origin of that idiom is. Crackers are pretty interesting.

STUPID:

This is a funny switcheroo, too. You think it’s gonna be about me being suspicious of my wife, but it turns out she should be suspicious of me.[1] Also, don’t have affairs, people. It’s despicable. Just get divorced like a normal person.

REACTION:

There were these TV commercials about drunk driving that said “Buzzed driving is drunk driving.” So I made a joke about the word “buzz”. Also, don’t drink and drive, people. Just pass out in a gutter like a normal person.

That concludes this episode of This is Twittering: Meta-Commentary Digest.

  1. I’m not really married, ladies. []
