Top Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Tweets

While the beginning of Super Bowl 48 was abuzz with comments about Joe Namath's jacket and safeties, the rest of the game was a shit storm of comments about how the Seattle Seahawks were bending over the Denver Broncos and beating them down. And of course the promise of Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers performing on this year's "Super Bowl Halftime Show," drew plenty of shit talking from the Twittersphere. In honor of all the online commentary that made us was LOL, HAHA, ROFL, LMFAO, etc., here are our picks for the Top Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Tweets.

Funniest Tweets From The 2014 Grammy Awards

Even Arby's had jokes....
The 56th annual Grammy Awards took over our TV's last night and as usual, the world was observing. Whether people were watching because they wanted to see their favorite musical acts like Metallica, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, and Imagine Dragons hit the stage, or whether they watched simply to trash talk, it seemed like everyone tuned in for the festivities. Once again, the Grammys were hosted by LL Cool J and filmed in Los Angeles yet somehow, the east coast got to watch it first. (Seriously, that bullshit needs to be fixed.) Thanks to our fascination with social media, all of the winners, their outfit successes and fails (Pharrell, we're talking to you), and the standout performances were shouted out before we even got a chance to watch it ourselves but honestly, we weren't too bummed out about it. After all, it just gave us more time to troll Twitter for the stand-out opinions from our pals rocking their skillfully crafted tweets in 140 characters or less. We have to once again give it up to you guys and gals for all of the on-line entertainment because this year during the Grammys, well, you certainly didn't disappoint at all.

The Iron Sheik Demands Respect, You Jabroni!

If you don't like me I don't give a fuck.
Over here at OC Weekly, we don't mind being labeled "super fans" when it comes to Pro Wrestling Hall of Famer, former bodyguard to the Shah of Iran, and the ruler of Twitter, the one and only Iron Sheik. Over the past year, he has become one of Twitter's most cultish figures, opining on everything from Nelson Mandela to Chris Brown to sporting events, all in a looping, hilarious narrative that fans of Howard Stern have long loved. Matter of fact (and to take a page out of the book of the man himself), if you don't respect the legend, then you can go fuck yourself. The Iron Sheik keeps it real, whether he is online or in person by letting his emotions fly verbally in the sweetest and/or the most cutting way. It's actually overly apparent (and hysterical) if he doesn't respect someone or something by watching him voice his opinion's on-line and letting those "all caps" fly. And for the record, that's just one of the reasons that we are #TeamSheikieForLife.

Another reason is because when he loves and respects someone, it's overly obvious as well. This is no doubt why he launched the new "Iron Sheik Alarm Clock" app that just hit iTunes yesterday. See, The Iron Sheik is a tough guy but, he also cares about some of your no good asses as well. Before you download his new app and let him wake you lazy mother fuckers up, we had a chance to talk to the legend himself and...Oh. My. God. After how "real" he kept it with us, well, we didn't think it was possible but we love him even more now--he is no Rice Krispies dick. Respect.

The Answer to the Comedic Equation is Patton Oswalt

Johnathan Leibson
Someone should look that up because I don't know if I invented it.
If you don't know who Patton Oswalt is by now, sorry, you must be living a life of boredom. Lately, the multifaceted comedian has been everywhere doing everything from writing to voiceovers but at the end of the day, he's just a humbly gifted man that's super talent has made him into a household name. Without going on and on (and on and on), the bottom line here is that Oswalt fucking rules no matter what venture he is dipping his toes into. With a new special "Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time" airing on EPIX January 17th, we took the opportunity to toot his horn on his fantastic Twitter skills and to pretty much gush about how fan-boy we are about everything he does. Sorry (not sorry) folks, we sincerely love Oswalt. There, we said it.

Top (20)14 Tweets from New Year's Eve


Did you go out on New Year's Eve? Have a great time? Spend too much money? Wake up needing five Advil, three espressos, and a shot of Jack Daniel's to take the edge off? Pardon us if we sound bitter but some of us stayed home last night. Whether it was because you didn't want to spend excess cash, couldn't line up a babysitter, or the memories of past NYE night's that made your friends question your taste in the opposite sex kept you in, those of us who stayed home still had fun. We did right? OK, we had a decent time ringing in 2014 from the comfort of our couches. See, while we were watching the ball drop with the likes of Kathy Griffin, Ryan Seacrest, Jenny McCarthy, and Anderson Cooper, we were also cruising the web. Twitter to be more exact.

While Facebook was full of party pictures last night, a party of words (and no doubt a TON of drinking) was going down on Twitter. To celebrate 2014 and in case you missed something while you were out there having the time of your lives (jealousy is a hell of a drug), we chose the "Top 14 Tweets from New Year's Eve" just for a video. And by the way, we get it if you need to squint while looking at the bright light coming of off your phone or laptop while you read this. Maybe you better have two shots of Jack. Yeah, that'll help.

Top 10 Tweets on Christmas Day

Gary Orona

The holiday season means two things, you are ohhh so excited to hang out with family or, you are forced to hang out but you'd rather be doing something else. Like spend your time on social media. (As if you don't do that 364 days of the year. Yes, we're also talking to ourselves here.) When it came to the "joyous" day of the 25th this December, folks of all faiths cruised through the Twittersphere multitasking and did both. Whether they celebrated the day or didn't, everyone had something to say and while we avoided our own family, we read and laughed at all of them. OK, at most of them. So just in case you missed some of the great tweets because you were too busy posting everything you got (at nauseum) on Instagram, we picked out some of the best of the best just for you with our Top 10 Tweets on Christmas Day. It's like a little gift from us to you. And no worries, there is no thank you card necessary.

Top 10 Tweeters of 2013

via Twitter
All hail the Iron Sheik!
Twitter has been really taking over social media for the last few years but when it comes to 2013, it seems to have been more explosive than ever. It's turned into a source for breaking news, events, and of course, a go-to spot for non-stop hilarity during an awards show. Some tweeters do it so well in fact that they have scored book deals, TV shows, and even board games just from keeping it awesome in 140 characters or less. That's something we call, mad skills. And while some people still hate on Twitter, some people on Twitter do it so well they make it impossible to hate on them. Those people have made our list for the Top 10 Tweeters of 2013 and with that, we offer a hearty thank you for entertaining us over the year and we can't wait to see what you'll do in 2014!

Brody Ryan's '15 Seconds of Fame' is Now 30 Seconds

Your 15 seconds is apparently not up!

So you thought after a week or so, you'd heard the last of #StarbucksDrakeHands. Well, not if Brody Ryan, master of the coy pose seen round the world, has anything to say about it. Lucky us. After Brody brought us the Internet phenomenon known as #StarbucksDrakeHands, the cyber world responded with countless parodies of the video. And they were ahhhmazing. This week, Ryan is back to set the record straight on what really went down. As it so happens, Ryan is a rapper of sorts, so what better way to shed some light on the situation than to record a track to do just that. And he did. And we're bringing it to you. And you're welcome. Now let the parodies begin after you enjoy "15 Seconds of Fame." See the song and the lyrics below.

Comedian Ricky Smith's Crazy Adventures as King of the #RAKE Movement

Not to sound corny but, I just want it to inspire people to be kind.

When it comes to Cleveland native Ricky Smith, this comedian, writer and editor for Adult Swim's Black Dynamite is as funny and as modest as they come. Also a do-gooder, Smith founded "Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere" (or R.A.K.E) because he just wanted to get out there and be kind. What a concept right? A ton of people are taking notice and jumping onboard allowing this movement to spread like wildfire around the world. Don't believe us? Just check out the hashtag #RAKE on Twitter or Instagram and you'll see people from all over following his lead. It has left him feeling great and if you get in on the fun of simply being kind, you can get the same wonderful "warm and fuzzy" feeling as well. The best part about this movement? You don't even need money to deliver a smile to someone's face. We had the chance to talk to Ricky to see how this all started and to see how we can all do our part to R.A.K.E because let's face it, we could all use a little kindness.

The Best BET Hip-Hop Awards Tweets

Still the king? Wait. Ever the king?
The breakdown: Hosted by Snoop Dogg, this year's BET Hip Hop Awards (randomly on a Tuesday) were filled with performances galore by rappers like French Montana, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Future, Yo Gotti, and even Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. The kicker? They barely gave out awards. Not that anyone was complaining (JK, tons of people were complaining on-line) but this years "award" show played out like a concert complete with a TON of their signature "cypher" battles that according to Twitter, pretty much ended up being the highlight of the show. At the end of the festivities, Uncle Snoop passed out his "favorite snack" which is apparently a bacon, sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich with grape Welch's jelly. No words.
