Desperately seeking attention to a Twitter feed
that required 2862 follows in order to amass a mere 4663 followers, someone at the ridiculously irrelevant National Lampoon*, someone who finds AIDS fair game for "humor," decided to gain a little attention by ripping into Andrew Breitbart today. Among those tweets came this witty zinger:
In other news, National Lampoon is still in business and somehow less relevant than "Saturday Night Live."
But if I have their attention, if someone unworthy to even breathe the same air as The Mighty John Hughes and P.J. O'Rourke is reading this and has any kind of say in the film production side of their business, I'd like to offer a suggestion that might help with the credibility of their brand. Instead of naming your films, say, "National Lampoon's Going the Distance"; title them this way: "Another Desperately Unfunny, Straight-to-Video Piece of Shit We've Called 'Going the Distance.'"
You'll sleep better.
As a matter of fact, you might want to call your Twitter feed: "Another Desperately Unfunny Production from National Lampoon." Really, this is the best you've got...?
Thanks for the Valentine's Day love for Breitbart. Remember kids, the real laugh will come when he pays through the nose.
Andrew Breitbart's motto: Truth, Justice, and the American way (except for blacks).
Dear Sirs: I am relevant and love the black peoples. -- Andrew Breitbart
I will say this about your Twitter feed, though. I never thought I'd find one less funny than Eric Boehlert's. But maybe that's why a George Soros footstool
has 3500 more followers than you.
*This is not a verified Twitter account, which means that either someone stole the National Lampoon handle and is seeking to denigrate the failing brand further or Twitter simply doesn't consider the failing brand worth verifying.
A smart gambler would put his money on both.
