    The first word popping to mind for the fill-the-blank is: “crap” your pants… hehe :)

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com/ Beiruta

    My fill in the blank would be: 10 Tweeps Who Will Make You Wet Your Pants… With Laughter! :)

    Funny people! Thanks for the share, I’ll make sure to follow them now!

    There is also a funny guy called “Chris Voss”, his humor might not always be very delicate, yet his tweets are fun! I even added him on my Facebook account!

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com/ Roba

    Amer, you took that right out of my mouth ;) But now that I read these funny tweets again, I’m thinking that it will probably make me pee my pants :P

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com/ Beiruta

    Close to what it made me do :P

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com/ Roba

    Oh, forgot to add, great post! It made my very boring day.

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com M.Bamieh

    glad it brightened some days and others laugh… to me those people knock my pants off

  • Guest

    Rather poor research, seeing as you call Graham Linehan 'Graham Liner', give him the twitter name @gliner when it's @glinner, and attribute a tweet to him that's actually from @serafinowicz. They're both very funny though and both deserve to be in the top ten.

  • Bob Affleck

    Graham Liner is ace, along with his writing partner Arthur Munchious.

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com M.Bamieh

    I thought he was considering changing his last name to Liner. Non the less my bad… it's fixed now.
    As for the attribution it does say via @serafinowicz …
    LoL @Boob Affleck
    ps. i think my dyslexia is acting up

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com Amer Kawar

    Oops.. fixed. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • http://twitter.com/spoon579 Rob Jennings

    Yeah it says “via @serafinowicz”, but if the point of the article is “follow these funny people” then surely it would be better to put something funny that @glinner said, rather than something funny that he forwarded (as well as, in the screenshot, show a screencap of @serafinowicz's page)

    Having said all that, serafinowicz is a funny funny man, and deserves to be on this list.

    I'm a fan of @badbanana. And @shamu (who knew a killer whale could be so funny?).

    I recently started following @funnyhumour and @funnyoneliners. They keep me laughing!

  • Bardoron5

    I fail to comprehend the appeal of Shit my Dad Says, aside from its very apt name. This gets a TV deal? One in four comments is mildly funny. I know talented comedy writers in LA who are out of work.

    Sorry, Justin, your dad is just an old guy who's so cantankerous and scatological he occasionally lucks out on some workable comedy phrasing. And you are just one hell of a lucky guy.

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com M.Bamieh

    I see where you are coming from and kinda agree with you on him being a lucky guy. The only way i can explain the appeal of it all is just that a lot of people can relate to having a snarky foul mouthed relative who just pisses them off when they open their mouth but in reality you are laughing your ass off in your head.
    as far as the tv deal go… it'lll bite the shark before it gets green lighted i think, can't develop much of a plot from what he has. or maybe not … after all seinfield is a one liner show.

  • Bardoron5

    Thanks for your comments. I agree that such a thin premise is very unlikely to move forward in LA. Unless of course they add a wise-cracking 11 year old, give Justin a supermodel girlfriend who from time to time plays golf with Tiger Woods, and make Justin a hopeless Twitter addict who now writes a page called “Shit my Dad wrote for the NY Review of Books.”

    And to play Justin's dad, how about Lewis Black with a bit of aging makeup?

  • http://blog.thoughtpick.com M.Bamieh

    actually come to think of it if lewis black reads this comment he would totally pick up on the idea and just create his own little show around it instead :) he totally fits that character and it would be heaps better than that judge craptastic show he had
