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.

While Sunday is reserved for football in a lot of households around Orange County, last night many folks took a break from watching guys toss the pigskin to check out the Emmys. Were we pleased with the winners? Was it a good show? Who really cares. Watching the Twitter commentary about the ceremony was the best thing about the show.

The Funniest 2013 MTV Video Music Awards Tweets

Categories: LOL, MTV, Twitter

Sarah Colonna
@sarahcolonna Dear Mom and Dad: Hey, at least I haven't done this! #VMAs
From the horrendous pre-show where none of the "hosts" let the "artists" talk, to the actual award show that didn't disappoint in giving us all comments that were laugh-worthy, once again Twitter was more exciting than this year's MTV Video Music Awards show. The truth of the matter? Following Twitter is almost always more fun than any actual award show and this year during the 2013 VMA's, the tweets that the viewers churned out didn't let us down. People definitely weren't shy about bagging on the term "Mahomie" that was spewed out of singer Austin Mahone's mouth, or Miley Cyrus's excessive need to keep sticking her rank tongue out her mouth while gyrating a foam finger into her latex covered vagina. The MTV #VMA hashtag was on fire and we captured some of the best of the best just for you.

Patton Oswalt's Great Twitter Prank Over the Weekend

Categories: LOL, Twitter, comedy

Gotcha suckas!
On Saturday, Patton Oswalt's Twitter feed sparked outrage from simpletons and big laughs to just about everyone else following him. The clever comic/actor sent a slew of tweets that, when taken out of context, make it seem like Oswalt had crossed the line from funny into complete insanity that compelled plenty of threatening messages to be hurled at him by people not paying close enough attention. To that all we can say is, don't you feel dumb about not catching on to the joke? In reality when you piece them together and read it in order, it's simply this comic doing some amazing trolling while hitting some hot topics out there in the world today. Well played Patton. Well fucking played. (Insert slow clap here)
