Blake Shelton Is Tweetin' Hilarious

While I've had my doubts about Twitter, I'm becoming a fan. The key, I think, is in who you follow, which makes all the difference in the world.

After originally making a few poor choices—I thought, for example, that following the White House tweets would be interesting, but it's not—I've hit upon the right combination, at least for me.

No. 1 on the charts and in my tweeting heart is Blake Shelton, an artist I've known for almost 10 years. I've always thought Blake was funny, but his humor shines through on Twitter.

Here are a few of my favorite tweets from Blake:

"Just saw a lizard eat a fly. High five PETA! I stomped his little ass! Just doing my part..."

"Doing a show with with Craig Morgan today. He's taking me water boarding for my birthday!! It's all I hear about these days.. Must be fun!"

"Ok, just mixed a drink and am going to watch craig Morgan perform.... Oops! I almost forgot my earplugs and barf bag..."

"Just because you look good for your age doesn't really mean you look good... Maybe you were ugly as a youngster..."

"I used to feed my pet turkey stove top stuffing.... Stuffed himself."

"Will someone please give PETA directions to my tree stand!"

"Why can't we give the mail to jehovahs witnesses and save on postage?"

Meanwhile Blake's girlfriend, Miranda Lambert, can hold her own when it comes to Twitter.

"How come all my tweets are about Blake and all Blake's are about......Blake?:)"

It's one thing being funny, it's another thing being funny in 140 characters or less.

Another of my favorites is actor Brent Spiner—Data on "Star Trek: Next Generation," as my Trekkie friends all know.

Mr. Spiner has over a half million followers on Twitter and here's why

"Finally watched THE DARK KNIGHT. Very entertaining. Heath Ledger is amazing, and Christian Bale is great as the new Picard."

"My friend, Dave, says he saw Chem trails over L.A. yesterday. I'm not sure I believe in this, but...sorry, have to go. My nose is bleeding."

"I think it's possible the results of the Iranian Presidential election were tabulated in Florida."

I'm guessing Trekkies are pretty tech-savvy and right at home on Twitter, which probably helps explain his popularity as well.

While I prefer Facebook for honest-to-goodness, albeit mostly abbreviated, conversation, Twitter is a fun distraction.

  1. I love Brent Spiner's posts too - and it's amazing how many of his posts float past his readers! Twitter at times is a treasure trove of one-liners - once you get past the spam!

  2. We are Blogging about the same stuff my Brett is definitely a laugh and a half.

  3. Did someone else have time besides me to be here, because I'm working and this is supero borign but sadly it's my job...
