Shit My Dad Says

One of my four especially clever and hip friends suggested I visit Justin on twitter.  The same friend who graced me with the latest by David Sedaris.  Months later, after the rest of the world has discovered Justin and he has accepted  a book deal by Harper Collins with a sitcom in the works, I finally make my way to him, tailing his already almost 1 million followers after only three months.  What a riot.
He twitters the cynical, the outrageous, the bitter,  and the wisdom of his father's frequent mini-rants. Succinctly relayed with equal parts laughter, benevolence, and respect.If you are uncomfortable with words like shit,fuck, goddam, and jesus christ, you should probably avoid Justin and his father.
A few of his dad's sage manifestos:
"Everybody's broke, so here's the rule for Christmas this year; if you still shit your pants, you get a present. Otherwise tough shit."

"Son, no one gives a shit about all the things your cell phone does. You didn't invent it, you just bought it. Anybody can do that."

"I hate paying bills... Son, don't say "me too." I didn't say that looking to relate to you. I said it instead of "go away."

  1. I not-so-secretly love "Shit My Dad Says"
    It's a surefire way to get at least one laugh even on a bad day!

  2. Hey Girl... Just cruisin' through some of your older posts I may have missed in my absence last month, and I can't believe I totally missed this one.

    I TOTALLY love this guy. Been following him for a long time now. Glad you found it. Hysterical stuff!!!

    (and don't worry, I'm not gonna comment on every archived post and make you read them all!) Although, that would be rather funny, and "stalker like" of me!!
