I find this funny coming from her as she was head writer on Saturday Night Live, a show that often (during her tenure) was painfully unfunny to watch.

Video complaining about boring twitter was boring...

There must be something I'm missing here. For the most part the only people that see a person's tweets are people that follow said person. The boring minutia of the lives concerning us everyday non celeb folks might be relevant to people that are following us.

Sally wished Bob a happy birthday via Twitter. I'm friends with Bob and follow both Sally and Bob, but didn't know it was Bob's birthday. Now I do. Thanks, Sally. fark-you Tina Fey.

Is there an Ultra-Twitter where you must read every post that everyone makes? Or is that something that people can't talk about.

Her humor is more of a smart/clever people thing.

Like Dennis Miller? He really digs up some historical facts to set up his jokes.


I thought Dennis Miller was funny until 9/11 and he became a batshiat crazy neocon.

I kind of feel bad because I held a gun to Tina Fey's head and said I would shoot her if she didn't follow me on Twitter.

You have to go out of your way to get someone's Twitter feed. If someone is boring, unfollow them. Really not that hard of a concept.

Not fellating Fey doesn't necessarily note your political affiliation.

She's turning into an elitist old hag.

/Never thought very highly of her.
//Still unimpressed.

No, Miller is just obscure, not funny. Fey references things you don't need to look up, you just need to actively be living a life to understand her.

Dennis Miller was the last great Weekend Update Anchor. Everyone after him was either likeable but flawed, tried too hard, smug, or lame. Dennis Miller's segments were worth staying up for. I have no comments pre-Miller; Classic SNL (the 70s) was in another zone all together.


Dennis Miller was, honestly, awesome when he was on SNL. And then, like a couple of other SNL regulars, Dennis Miller went nuts. It was a shame to watch, really.

Never has someone got as far with as little as Tina Fey has.

She's the Ryan Seacrest of comedy.

Her humor is more of a smart/clever people thing.


That right there is funnier than anything she has ever done. Oh, I like her, that means it is intelligent,

Six_By_Nine: I heard she was angling for a part in the next Muppet Movie. So if Jason Segel is part of it, I imaging it will be a smoldering pile of smug.


One of the things I couldn't stand about her Weekend Update hosting was it was joke, pause to appreciate how clever it is, move on. Humor that needs to be pointed out/explained fails at the basic level of comedy.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: TeddyRooseveltsMustache: You'd know, right Tina?

Tina Fey comes on my tv. I'm like...


[a.rgbimg.com image 300x235]

Not a popular sentiment around these parts, but I agree. Can't say I'm a fan.


Exactly. The Fark Hive Mind think she's the greatest think since sliced bread. They will tell you that her brand of humor is cerebral and you are too stupid to understand her even though she is not even remotely funny.

Before we start licensing for Twitter, can we license the "right" to be a parent first?

As an introvert this is how I feel about most things. I don't enjoy small talk, facebook, twitter, or any other mindless babble. Yet here I am on Fark, and babbling nonetheless.

Right.

You should have to get a license to continue to post boring stuff on twitter. Genius.
