Strapping On The Tweets Of Ignorance

Filed under: Boredom in Milford, What the hell is going on here? — nedryerson @ 4:27 pm


“You see, I’m going to use this phone to ignore him. This phone, right here, levitating at the end of my fingertips. Do you want to know how to ignore somebody with a phone? I’ll tell you. Wait where are y’all going?”
“My sandwich is running low on whiskey and I need to go out to the parking lot for a refill. Keep going. I can fill in the parts I miss.”
“I’m going to go get my tonsils boxed. All this talk of Terry makes me want him more. Good luck with your ignorance campaign. I’ll try not to tell too many people about all the degrading sex I’m about to have with Terry Gallagher, the Irish kid on the football team.”
“Um, hi pretty stripe shirt girl. I’m new at Milford. My name is Hervé Villechaize, Jr. Can you direct me to the tray return? Oh, silly me, it’s right over there under that BIG sign. Perhaps, I shall see you around.”


Well, Chip, clearly you don’t know what a blitz is and Cyndy doesn’t know the meaning of the word ignore. You guys are perfect for each other! Go make some stupid babies while Grammy Anita bakes stupid cookies downstairs.

Hey, who are these guys. Cool street twits, discussing tweets on the street, with backwards hats and carefully cuffed slacks. “Yo check out some of these tweets, yo.”
“Dude, you just began and ended a sentence with yo.”
“Shut up, let’s just read tweets, yo.”
“Wow, talk about getting retweeted upside the head!”
“Shut up, yo.”

Thanks guys, here’s a few bucks. Go get a soda or something.

  4. Tweets: the 21st Century weapon of choice for settling social disputes. “All right, men, take ten paces, turn and face each other, unholster your smartphones, and… TWEET!”

    Gil’sBarber: “Retweet” is when you forward a tweet to all your Twitter followers. What it means in this context, I have absolutely no idea.

  5. This is one of the worst GT plots of all time. It depends on our accepting the rapid and dishonest rise of Gallagher, and now his imminent downfall, all without the faintest idea of what motivates the real problem, the cardboard villain Doyle Dung. Aside from the truism “Marketing is inherently dishonest,” I still don’t see any reason to tell such an unbelievable story.

  6. I think the guys sitting on the curb tweeting are the same guys from the Gas ‘N’ Sip scene in “Say Anything” where they bemoan Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) being “dissed in the Malibu.” In fact, I think the guy on the right is Jeremy Piven.

  7. My guess: this is all a plot by Doyle Dane to get girls. No self-respecting female would ever go out with him, of course, so he concocts this scheme. Puff up a handsome. If dim-wittted, new arrival, so all the girls flock to him and contributes to a massive bout of hubris. Then comes the downfall, which happens so predictably that he doesn’t have to do anything. The girls, seeking to humiliate Gallagher, seek out the most odious boy in school to date, i.e. Dane, in order to show Gallagher how hopeless he is. Brilliant!

  8. Scott’s analysis confirms how incredibly strained this entire plot is. Like Gallagher’s popularity, it’s about to collapse of its own weight.

  9. 11/17 Cyndy and Chip: both candidates for the pantheon of hair. The women I know whose hair is akin to Cyndy’s aren’t interested in dating men. The Chipster’s do is fashion faux pas too. In P1, if Cyndy’s sporting any sweater meat at all it would have to be mighty uncomfortable [or physically impossible?] carrying what appears to be at least six inches of books against them. Only in Mufnrd… Et mais oui, plot has been a total suckfest.
