One of the funniest conversations I’ve ever read on Twitter.
first a little background. The players:
@Hodgman: John Hodgman, expert on everything. Possibly best known to the American TV watching public as PC in the ‘I’m a Mac’ commercials. Also an occasional correspondent on The Daily Show, and don’t forget the podcast Judge John Hodgman.
@PaulandStorm: [P]aul and [S]torm are an awesome comedy music duo. They sometimes do shows with @wilw (see below) and others as part of w00tstock. One of their more recent projects was the “___ is the name of my ___ cover band.” t-shirts for ThinkGeek.com.
@JohnRoderick is this other musician guy from some band. He is incredibly funny on Twitter, which is why i follow him.
@wilw: Wil Wheaton, actor, author, family man… did I mention Star Trek Alum? yeah, you know the kid from Stand by Me? He also does readings at w00tstock with @PaulandStorm
The following is a conversation between (mainly) Paul [P] of @PaulandStorm, and John Hodgman (@hodgman).
This is the order (top to bottom, opposite of actual twitter)in which I read this this morning.
Damn, that was funny. I was laughing so hard, I had to sit in my car for a few minutes before going into the office this morning. I think that it might have gotten funnier if I’d dug deeper into @Hodgman’s twitter feed and followed the conversations… but I’m lazy. Also, I consider the progression above to be absolutely perfect.
