The Funniest Thing on Twitter in a Long Time

So there’s some bad stuffs going on in Ukraine right now involving Russia. David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, I guess wanted to show that he was standing in solidarity with the USA, so he tweeted this:

This is very strange. Did he use a stock photo of him looking serious on the phone? Or did he have an aide photograph him just for this occasion? Why did he need a photo of himself on the phone in the first place? Did he think twitter wouldn’t believe that he actually talked to Obama on the phone?

Despite how serious the Ukraine situation is, this of course needed to be mocked. And mocked it was. And who better to mock the Prime Minister than Twitter superstar Rob Delaney?

And Sir Patrick Stewart was thankfully also on the case:

But things couldn’t get started until comic writer Michael Moreno joined in:

Whew! Now I know the situation is well in hand!

Edit: 11:59 AM
O noes! Wil Wheaton was too late to join the call 🙁

“Of the Month” January 2013

Tweeter of the Month:
Rob Delaney Rob Delaney @robdelaney
A comedian who had a banner 2012 and became more famous for his twitwit than his comedy routines. His tweets about the 2012 election got more hits than those from the candidates themselves. I especially enjoy the personas he takes on, like the “Cool Dad” and the “420NO” anti-pot activist:

He’s very NSFW and very funny. And very NSFW.

Album of the Month:
Album of the Month Five Letters from Far Away by Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount
The third full-length album from JM+FFD is another stunner, full of some of their most epically spacey songs yet, and some of their most rockin’. It is going to be released this Friday 1/4/13. Wait… if it hasn’t been released yet, how can it by my Album of the Month? Because I was given a PREVIEW COPY last week! That’s right, I got my grubby mittens on the album before it was released to the general public. And Carrie & I have been listening to it basically non-stop. You can listen to a 5-song preview yourself at the JM+FFD Bandcamp site, but you’re gonna hafta wait until Friday before you can get it for reals. And it is worth the wait.

In fact, you should join us at the CD Release party at Ballard’s Sunset Tavern!

Game of the Month:
Game of the Month Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d you steal our garbage?!!
Even putting aside that this is perhaps the greatest title of a video game ever, this is a very funny game. It seemed somehow familiar to me, too, but I couldn’t put my finger on it for a little while. Then it hit me: the gameplay is based heavily on Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link! The story was plotted by Pendleton Ward (creator of Adventure Time) himself, and some of the dialogue is a hoot; there is a section where you’re trying to locate Princess Bubblegum’s missing pantyhose, and you talk to a marshmallow kid who then goes on and on through several screens of dialogue about how disturbing it is that you’re talking to a kid about pantyhose and now he’s gonna grow up crazy because of it. Also, Finn calls pantyhose “gam buckets” at one point.
