DEFINITELY WORTH THE RETWEET

To be honest, we at tb-two* loooove to tweet. We took a break from the year-end craziness to visit funtweets.com and compiled a list of witty tweets that we would RT ASAP.

Evil_Dumbledore:If 'Guns don't kill people, people kill people', does that mean toasters don't toast toast, toast toast toast?

NickSchug: Twitter has messed me up. Now when someone says something I like in real life, I gently place my hand on their face and whisper "favorite."

YUCKYBOT: When a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and a round thing in my face I get concerned about her disproportionate body shape.

summerjane: Dear guy that asked me out in high school & is now a millionaire: I am entirely shallow now and will reconsider. XOXO, Summer

These whales aren't fails

Veteran tweeters know that sometimes the Twitter site gets overloaded and shuts down. During such over-capacity times, users see the "fail whale,'' a drawing of a smiley whale being held up by a flock of Twitter birds. People with a lot of time on their hands (maybe waiting for Twitter to come back up) have created their own fail whales in a variety of media and displayed them at whatisfailwhale.info. Our favorites: the Fail Homer Simpson Whale and birthday cake Fail Whale.

That skinny guy's creepin' me out

Here's one more thing to keep you awake at night: Slenderman (also known as Slender Man). Originating as an Internet meme based on an Eastern European myth, the Slenderman saga has gained somewhat of a cult following through blog sites such as Tumblr. It's a series of videos popularized on YouTube as a film project about a film project called Marble Hornets. Viewers tuning in follow Jay, a partner of the project's director who has been handed the footage after he leaves for whereabouts currently unknown. Jay observes the videos and slowly learns what has plagued his former partner. Follow Jay and his quest for his friend and more information about his departure at youtube.com/marblehornets. Be true to the link though, because there are a lot of knock-offs and parodies. P.S. Don't watch these videos alone.
