Are my followers more humorous than I realize or am I simply able to read more Tweets and in a better mood because I’m out here on Cape Cod? Tough to say, but this Tweet by Ratty from earlier in the week gave me a good chuckle. I’ve been told that Bostonians have a cruel sense of humor – I suppose it must be true.
Ratty lives in the South End and he mostly Tweets about food and life with his fiancee. If you’re on Twitter and you’d like to follow Michael, you can find him @HeyRatty.
Earlier this week I read July 19th marks the 17th anniversary of the release of the movie Clueless, which stared Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy and Paul Rudd (among others). The movie also included a cameo by Boston musician and lead singer of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Dicky Barrett.
It could be a sign of how shallow or perhaps how “clueless” I am that I love this movie. Looking at the cast, I can’t believe Brittany Murphy has passed. She was brilliant as the East Coast transplant just trying to fit in with the cool kids and crushing on Elton.
One of my favorite lines of all time was when the uptight Amber says to the gym instructor, “My plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.” And Cher’s BFF, Amber, says without missing a beat, “Well, there goes your social life.“
I don’t know why but I thought this Tweet from Chris was hilarious. Chris is attending M.I.T. and many of his Tweets revolve around politics and local happenings here in Boston. If you like, you may follow him on Twitter @MITguy01.
Perhaps you have seen this compilation of news goofs. If not, the two minute clip is sure to appeal to the juvenile and give you a chuckle.
Have fun decorating your Easter Eggs if you happen to be into that sort of thing. Should you be celebrating Easter – be sure to leave out plenty of carrots for the Easter Bunny.

I wonder if this means that I need to sleep around with all those 99% protesters if the Occupy movement picks up again this spring. I hope not.
I’m not sure I’ve said everything in this 75-second video but it certainly made me chuckle. I think this might be more of a “West coast” gay vernacular.
I think I could come up with some pretty funny phrases guys in Boston and the Northeast are more prone to say. Words that come to mind “Provincetown” and “Boatslip“.
Phrases you might hear locally, “He lives on the Red Line, I live on the Green Line; it wasn’t going to work.” and “Dorchester isn’t that far away.“
What might you add to the list?
I saw this picture on Taylor Chrien Tumblr page and thought it was absolutely hilarious. As a child of the 80s, I can’t tell you how many of these strange looking rectangular pieces of plastic I owned.
In response to the question in smaller type, No it is not like an iPod.
You know that there is a gay marketing executive somewhere within T.J. Maxx who laughed their ass off when he / she approved these signs to be posted in their store. I mean come on…
Normally I feature tweets from other people as a way to profile others, but this tweet of mine resulted in so many responses I figured I’d share it here too.
Technically this came in last night but I wanted to share it today since I think a good chuckle can help make the morning a bit more bearable. I hope you enjoy the sarcastic irony all rolled up in less than 140 characters.
Thank you to @theBonMotter
This was brought to my attention on Twitter from Laura (@loveLFM). Clearly this Proctologist practice has a great sense of humor. That is hilarious, thanks for sharing Laura.
