screen-shot-2009-08-28-at-25111-pmTwitter is used for a lot of things these days, but this has to be one of my favorites. A 28-year-old guy named Justin has set up a Twitter account simply to tweet out random things his elderly father says. The title of the feed: “Shit My Dad Says.

Apparently, I’m a bit slow stumbling upon this; even though it was only started at the beginning of August, Justin’s account for his 73-year-old father’s sayings already has over 150,000 followers. But I don’t care, it needs to be pointed out again how awesome this idea is.

My parents, while not that old yet, often say things worthy of tweets, like when my mom seriously thought netbooks were computers built for little people. And had Twitter been around when my grandfather was, this would have been the perfect medium for his bits of comedic wisdom.

Here are some of my favorites from Justin’s dad:

Your mother rented this film, What Happens In Vegas. I thought it was going to be non-fiction, but it’s fiction, and it’s about some idiot.”

Who is this woman?….Kate Beckinsale? Well, you can tell Kate Beckinsale she sucks.”

Your mother made a batch of meatballs last night. Some are for you, some are for me, but more are for me. Remember that. More. Me.”

Your brother brought his baby over this morning. He told me it could stand. It couldn’t stand for shit. Just sat there. Big let down.”

Love this Mrs. Dash. The bitch can make spices… Jesus, Joni (my mom) it’s a joke. I was making a joke! Mrs. Dash isn’t even real dammit!”

Why would i want to check a voicemail on my cell phone? People want to talk to me, call again. If i want to talk to you, I’ll answer.”

You know how else I know this site idea is awesome? Some random girl at the cafe I’m at just saw Shit My Dad Says on my screen and stopped to tell me that it’s awesome.
