Some Random Just Us Tweets


The anti injustice campaign continues over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com. I'd like to use this occasion to get something off my chest. Is it me or has Twitter become a new haven for spam?

Now don't get me wrong. I like Twitter. It's a great time waster. But in a good way, not a waste of time if you know what I mean. I know others though who have stopped twittering but I'm afraid I'm still hooked. I mean how else would I know what a ditz Kirsty Alley was or how shallow John Mayer was. Or that John Larroquette has a blip.fm addiction. Or that Danny deVito is right over the edge. I mean sometimes Twitter's way better than, say, TMZ or Entertainment Tonight. Imagine if Michael Jackson had tweeted?


But as with anything else, you've got to take the good with the bad. And sometimes Twitter has become a deep injustice to my intelligence and my patience. For example, does anybody know what the white teeth secret is that dentists don't want you to know about? If you do, let me know, eh? People keep tweeting that question, but no one seems to know the answer. Well, except maybe for those tweeters that waste their 140 character messages - and my time - posing that question. It's what RevTwt is all about. People get paid for including links in their tweets that drive chirpers to product-laden sites. Hey, if I wanted to be inundated with ads, I'd watch TV!

Horoscopes. Another bizarre tweet subject. Why do people want other people to know what their horoscope is? Has anyone actually clicked on the link to see the horoscope of a total stranger. If you have, I hope you're not stalking, I mean following me. I mistakenly subscribed to this service when I started chirping and just recently unsubscribed. Just sharing a little TMI for my liking.



And what's with every wanna-be porn star in North America wanting to follow me? Not a week goes by where I don't get several notifications from users with erotic-sounding names that they're following me. Hey, I'm a happily married, middle-aged, white guy. If only we had Twitter in high school.

Finally a tweet pal of mine @deadrooster (now there's a username to go with this story) shared with me something that came his way, in a manner of speaking - a Twitvert for penis enlargement. Now these things are always coming my way as e-mail spam. How they found out I'll never know. But to cut our story short, metaphorically speaking, the link to the tweet promises men they can...

...enlarge your penis 1-4 inches using the penisadvantage.com natural penis enlargement system or your money back...

And just what might be this mastiff-inducing magical marvel? Read on...

I promise never to try to sell you teeth whiteners or penis enlargement products. I'll simply ask you to send money directly to my paypal account for no good reason. Because I like you.
nonamedufus said…
CatLady: I'll buy that.

Hey...you can never have too many wanna-be porn stars following you.

It's what I live for.
nonamedufus said…
Moooooog: I'll send you their links. They may come in handy.
Don said…
Seems like the only people that follow me are the porn centered ones. If they looked as good as their avatar I'd probably follow them in turn. I don't. My penis is okay without them. Thank you.
nonamedufus said…
Don: I'll take your word for it. You appear to have things well in hand.
Quirkyloon said…
Whew!

I was worried that you were going to grace us with a pic of Danny Devito AFTER using the penile enhancer.

Whew.

Again. Whew!

word veri: rersypes
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: I think Danny needs a whole body enhancement.

Hi, just found you, very funny post and I do not even tweet or twitter or whatever, I have enough to do.
As for paying "them" for what you can do for yourself, how else would you get screwed?
The secret of teeth whiteners is that yes... you can do it yourself for next to nothing. It is sort of like the penis englargement thing, only oral. Sigh.
nonamedufus said…
BJ: Come back tomorrow, I'll still be here. Hmm... I'm getting a picture in my mind I'd really rather not have.
Me-Me King said…
Thank you for raising awareness of this ongoing injustice. I, for one, am tired of the offers, the "gifts" and those wanting me to join their mafia.

Tweet, Tweet.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Mafia Wars - that's worthy of a post of it's own!
I hate all spam, on Twitter or anywhere else. But I would like to know how I can enlarge my penis by 4 inches because I'd love to have a 16-inch penis. Please forward that one to me, OK?
nonamedufus said…
Mike: You sure? It's a rather long attachment. (ha,ha, sometime I kill myself!)
DeadRooster said…
Using just your hands, huh? There's no particular reason I should know this, but I'm pretty sure that won't work.

Thanks for mentioning me (even though it was in conjunction with penis enlargement... for no particular reason).
nonamedufus said…
DeadRooster: Sorry, guy but I thought @deadrooster juxtaposed with penis enhancement was quite funny! Thanks for the link - in a manner of speaking.
John J Savo said…
Where there's Internet, there's spam. It is inevitable.
Waltsense.com said…
I used to think I was a stud because of all the myspace models following me....not I am John Wayne on Twitter - it's amazing the women who wish to befriend me ...only to lead me to a hacked site and empty promises.
nonamedufus said…
John: Amen, brother.
nonamedufus said…
Waltsense: Oh that was such a sad story.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
