Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is a classic, the Unknown Comic! Let’s see what he’s tweeting.
October 24th: “Don’t you hate it when you spend 10 minutes looking for you phone in your car using your phone as a flashlight…?”
He couldn’t make that joke in the 70’s when he started.
October 24th: “Unknown Fact… If someone plays Xmas music in October, you’re legally allowed to kill them and use their corpse for Halloween decoration.”
October 24th: “Even though my birthday was 6 months ago… I am still accepting gifts.”
Solid policy. I do the same thing with Thanksgiving.
October 24th: “Sad News… My Uncle Pat, a Crossword Puzzle Fanatic, died last week. He was buried 6 down and 3 across.”
13 hours ago: “Show me a home where the Buffalo roam… and I’ll show you a home full of Buffalo Shit.”
Still, it would have to be a HUGE home.
11 hours ago: “Sure, the Grass may be greener on the other Side… but I’d hate to have their Water Bill.”
Hey look, there’s a reason he wears a bag.
6 hours ago: “Sure money talks… It says “spend me”.”
Yes. Yes it does.
3 hours ago: “For most men having kids is a big responsibility… because they have to deal with them every other weekend.”
2 hours ago: “Unknown Fact… Googling your symptoms when you feel sick is the quickest way to convince yourself that you’re dying.”
Sounds like he’s getting on in years. Guess he’s an old bag! Oh, that’s terrible. You might say, sack-religious! But seriously, I don’t mean to make a federal case out of this! Uh….tote!
Okay, let’s rate the Unknown Comic’s Tweets. I give him a 9 for Mustness, a 9 for Style and a 10 for Insanity. That’s an overall score of 9.5. You gotta follow the Unknown Comic!

Out driving around yesterday and me and Missus spotted a Christmas tree and Christmas decorations…in October. Here are the other Ten Things That Shouldn’t Happen Before Halloween.
If your birthday is this week: Your cat will cancel your birthday party so you’ll have more time for petting.
Aries: You will eat nothing but left Twix bars, but then realize “left” is only relative to how you picked up the candy in the first place.
Taurus: Your attempt to Trick or Treat a week early is met with a mixed reaction and little candy.
Gemini: The band, Jane’s Addiction, reunites on your front lawn and then, just as quickly, breaks up.
Lemini: Hillary Clinton will tie you to a chair and beat you on the shins until you answer the question, “Are you my bitch?!” to her satisfaction.
Cancer: The stars say, they can see that Frisbee on your roof.
Leo: Take charge this week! Everyone else stuck on the life boat is passed out from dehydration anyway.
Virgo: Check your poop, it’s full of rubies for some reason.
Libra: A high pressure salesman will get you to buy the Los Angeles Clippers on your credit card.
Scorpio: You will be manhandled by a customer service rep.
Sagittarius: You’ll see Donald Trump being thrown out of a tanning salon where he’ll beg the manager for just “five more minutes”.
Capricorn: Your mailman will accidentally bring you junk mail from the future.
Aquarius: You’ll find that missing hotel in Monopoly when you accidentally step on it walking to the bathroom at three in the morning.
Pisces: The Cheeseburger Fairy insists that you owe her over $40 for her last visit.
What’s the blackest show on TV? It’s Luke Cage and it’s full of awesome. Netflix’s current biggest hit is just unbelievably good from beginning to end. As a fan of the original Power Man and Iron Fist, this new TV show was like manna from Heaven for this fanboy.
Combining the best of the 70’s era Luke Cage with the modern interpretation, Mike Colter stars as the framed ex-con trying to get his life together in Harlem. But on the mean streets there are gangsters, kids in crisis and folks just trying to get by. Luke isn’t your typical superhero and he isn’t an antihero. While most comic book characters ended up being defined by their powers, Luke was always defined by his character and his powers secondarily.
The twelve episodes are a slow roll out. By episode four, we get the full origin story and things really start to pick up. By the end of the first season, the stage is set with all the major characters and what’s going to happen in the second season. Even some of the villains get fleshed out beyond the 2-dimensional ones you might expect in a TV series. Marvel continues to kill it.
Much like Ant Man’s appearance in the Avengers made me go back and watch Ant Man, I’m now anxious to go back and see all the Luke Cage episodes on Jessica Jones. Binge Watch this one bros! Sweet Christmas!
I give Luke Cage 9 out of 10 keggers.
