Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is Maurice Lamarche, voice of the Brain from Pinky and the Brain, as well as a bunch of other cartoon characters.  Let’s see what he’s tweeting.


January 15th:  “Shopping at this ethnic mkt 2nite almost turned me vegan. I think the packaged lamb face looking like Benjamin Raspail’s head did the trick.”

Wow, talk about your head cheese.

January 15th:  “How ethnic, you ask? This place actually had a hookah aisle. I sh*t you not”

Finally, a local place to score my opium.

January 17th:  “Guy in front of me in line at just said “There are no bad seats here”. Obviously, he wasn’t talking to my 290 lb. ass.”

I’m reading most of this in the voice of The Brain, but that one I read in your killer Orson Wells impersonation.

January 20th:  “This is freakin’ hilarious! Done by my friend . Please give it your vote so it’ll air during SuperBowl!

Man, that gets more competitive every year.

February 3rd:  “Read an article on how we shower too often. A compromise? Cilantro-based body spray. That way at least we smell like soap to 10% of humans.”

Hmm, can’t risk it.  If I smell like cilantro I might get hungry and try to eat my own arm.

February 11th:  “So grateful to have just guest-voiced on , and to be voice-directed by the busiest brilliantly funny man in animation, !”

Wow, you’re in a ton of stuff I watch.

Okay, let’s rate Maurice’s tweets.  He’s a busy voice, so you can’t blame him for not updating all that much.  I like the behind-the-scenes stuff.  I give him a 7 for Mustness, an 8 for Insanity and a 9 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.  When you ask, what are we going to do tonight?  Your answer should be, the same thing we do every night, Pinky, follow Maurice.
