Welcome to Twitter in Focus, where media comes to die. Today’s contestant doesn’t know the meaning of the word “die” or “quit” or quite a lot of other important vocabulary words, please welcome, Homer J. Simpson.
September 26th: “I know what I’ll be doing at 8 PM Sunday! Waking up from my Saturday afternoon sleep off of Friday night.”
And now that the show is back on the air, you’ll be working every Sunday making America laugh and cringe and prepare snacks for the Walking Dead.
September 27: “Ah, College Football Saturday. A whole day of sitting around and watching unpaid kids ruin their knees for a degree in Communications.”
Yeah, good luck operating a camera with knees!
September 28th: “Today’s the big crossover. I’m gonna start pouring beer on my cereal and pancake battering up my orange juice.”
You handled yourself well during the fight, Homer. It was definitely a draw. I still don’t know which one of you is stupider.
October 3rd: “There are 4 baseball playoff games today. Woo hoo! That’s 4 times as many chances to complain about how slow and boring the game is!”
Ah, baseball. The Vanilla Wafer of sports. Harmless, boring and the thing you’ll take if there’s nothing else.
October 4th: “It’s Rocktober! 31 whole days of eating like Fred Flinstone — bring on the 9-foot slabs of Bronto Ribs!”
Where do you find a meat guy with access to those?
October 5th: “.@RealLennyLenford — your Fantasy Football Team is not performing as well as mine.
Take it easy, Homer. You don’t want Lenny to cry.
October 5th: “Hey, @DocJuliusHibbert — your Fantasy Team’s offense is as weak as my aorta. And you KNOW that’s weak!
Okay, let’s rate Homer’s tweets. Solid hashtags, Fred Flintstone reference— I give him a 6 for Mustness, a 9 for Insanity and a 9 for Style. That’s an overall score of 8. Nice job, Homer J! By the way, you can stop sending still photos of yourself to the Bongo Comics offices, that’s not how we make the comics.
