Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is Topher Grace, AKA: Venom and Eric Foreman. Let’s see what he’s tweeting.
Well, now that you’re muscled up, you should try a DC character. I’m thinking Green Arrow?
August 8th: “Dare me to take one?pic.twitter.com/vNlq99B7y6”
Nah, Barnes and Noble has enough problems.
That is a good breed.
A remake of “Mama’s House”?
That is a badass movie prop collection.
August 16th: “Just hanging with the guys…pic.twitter.com/Y239OnSPum”
Are those elephants the ones from Dumbo Drop?
That’s enough floats that if you jump in the pool, you might not hit water.
Okay, let’s rate Topher’s Twitter. I give him a 7 for Mustness, 7 for Insanity and a 9 for Style. That’s an overall score of 7.6, but I’ll bump it to 8 because Red told me to.

Restaurant: Han Dynasty in Manyunk
Food: Chinese Food
Portions: Above Average
Atmosphere: Not-so-great either
So I’m never going to the Han Dynasty restaurant “chain” ever again and here’s why. You might remember, a few weeks ago I almost headed out to Han. The reason I had to schlep all the way to Manyunk as opposed to eating at the Han Dynasty in my own back yard in Cherry Hill is that the Cherry Hill Han refused to honor the gift certificate I had from the Manyunk one. Seems pretty stupid considering the ease at which online banking would allow you to transfer the fifty dollars.
It’s a shame. The food was pretty on point at the Manyunk Han. I ordered a very spicy chicken and the Missus got Crispy Rice and pork. The Cold Sesame Noodles were so good, I decided not to make a scene with the manager on the way out. Screw it, I’m just never going there again. Probably for the best, the food burned much worse on the way out than it did going in.
Not much of a restaurant to go to anyway. It’s really more of a take out place with tables and four confused waiters/staff people. None of whom could seem to find the time to bring me the cup of ice I asked for three times. It’s a shame. Our first waiter, with a funky hair style, was very friendly. But he was doing all the work. The other three members of the staff were in slow motion. I hope he gets a better job elsewhere.
Oh, and our table was a little sticky, plus no iced tea, which is why I kept asking for ice. I simply couldn’t relax there and enjoy my food. The furniture, the atmosphere— It all feels very slapdash. I hope the chefs get better jobs too because I am still very annoyed that a supposed “chain” won’t honor gift certificates in all their locations. If not, then what the Hell is the point? I’m boycotting the lot of you. There’s plenty of other Chinese food around.
Han’s Dynasty in Manyunk gets 3.5 out of 10 keggers. Learn about customer service or make it all take out.
