Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die!  This week’s contestant is the legendary, Seth MacFarlane, creator of some of my favorite cartoons: Family Guy, American Dad and the Cleveland Show.  His toons are epic.  Let’s see if his tweets match.

April 14th:  “To every future co-worker’s daughter ‘til the end of time: no thanks, I would not like to buy some Girl Scout cookies.”

What?  Not even thin mints?

April 15th:  “Not enough people writing hit poems.”

Well, you know how the poetry circuit ruins poets.  Cocaine, groupies, late nights, the booze—  It’s the lifestyle.

April 15th:  “#FF @TheBiggIdea. He’s the one guy who works for me who’s never tweeted a joke about Japan.”

Yeah, tweeting jokes about Japan’s disaster is wrong.  On the upside, now that sushi comes pre-microwaved, maybe more people will eat it.

April 15th:  “RT@RedStatePolitics:Rich people are assholes for being rich, but they deserve tax cuts so they can stay rich and be continue to be assholes.”

If I could afford a better education, I’m sure I’d see the airtight logic in that.

April 15th:  “It seems the older Charlie Sheen gets, then more he looks like the Decepticon logo.”

I could see it now, Two and a Half Decepticons: Megatron, Starscream and their nephew/son, Soundwave all living in a Malibu beach house.

April 15th:  “RT @joshsdugger: it seems like the more you tweet the unfunnier you guy. // Is this today’s “Jumble”?”

Yeah, this is why I analyze tweets rather than post them.  It’s also why I hitchhike instead of drive.

April 15th:  “I bet there’s one guy in every airport ground crew who can’t turn his orange stick on without making a lightsaber sound.”

I got $20 says this is going to be a cut away on Family Guy.  It’ll be the same guy, in a parody of the Star Wars kid, and he probably damages the plane.  Probably add some kind of reference to Southwest.

April 16th:  “China is allowing the sale of small, airtight keychains that contain live animals– an atrocity on par with cat juggling. #NavinJohnson

They’re probably not alive very long if its airtight.  Unless they consider mold a live animal.

April 17th:  “Unfortunately at no point during my workday does anyone ever have cause to shout my name and then toss me a sword.”

That’s only because Orcs rarely attack Los Angeles.

April 18th:  “”I made your bed. Now would you like me to un-make it?” – turndown service”

Man, I think the turndown service is coming onto you, bro.

April 18th:  “RT @RepPaulRyan: In my plan, the elderly won’t just die alone on sidewalks. People will probably stop and watch.”

As a Libertarian, I’m outraged no one will be charging the spectators.

April 18th:  “Thor is like every other superhero, only beardier.”

I’m just glad they didn’t cast Zach Galifianakis, apparently the only other guy in Hollywood with a beard.

April 18th:  “I would not have wanted to use a bathroom after John Wayne.”

Who wants to use a bathroom after anyone else uses it?  If I could cut my used bathroom off my house and install another like a roll of toilet paper, I would.

April 18th:  ““When kids run away from home, gay stuff happens.” –Peter Pan, in tweet form”

Fun Fact, the Stonewall riots actually started in Neverland.

11 hours ago:  ““Wouldn’t it suck to be homeless? Come try it.” — campgrounds”

Yeah, sleeping on the ground is not my thing either.

Okay, let’s rate Seth’s tweets.  He’s got some solid material, a plug here and there and retweets.  I give him a 7 for Insanity, an 8 for Mustness and a 10 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.3.  Gotta follow Seth.  You can read all his tweets in Peter’s voice!
