MMT: The farewell edition

8:00 AM EDT on June 17, 2013

Before we get started, a bit of housekeeping to get out-of-the-way: This is my last week writing Monday Morning Tweets. It's been great fun and something I'm pretty proud of, but it was more than time to step away and let someone else take over. And that's where the real good news come in. Starting next week, Monday Morning Tweets will be written by someone you all know: Marisa.

When I knew I was quitting MMT, I asked my pal Marisa if she had any good ideas for who could take over, and she came up with one name -- herself. This is eerily like when George W Bush asked Dick Cheney to head his Vice Presidential Search Committee, and Cheney ended up recommending himself, so let's all cross our fingers that this doesn't end with Marisa shooting anyone in the face.

I've written Monday Morning Tweets for 18 months now, and before it gets too stale it's time to let a new voice and sensibility take over. As you all know, Marisa is a genius, and I can't wait to see what she does with it.

Also: you haven't totally gotten rid of me just yet. I've got a new project for TLO starting next week that I'm pretty psyched about. Until then I just want to say thanks for putting up with me every Monday morning. Especially you, Dean Blevins.

This week's tweets are after the jump.

That's just rude. I'd examine the pictures of people on Channel 4's website to find a suspect, but quite frankly it's so cluttered and impossible to navigate that I collapsed from exhaustion after ten minutes.


Was last week Gross People Out At Work Week or something, and I just missed it?


Can we talk about Mr. Wendell Edwards' hashtags, folks?

He punctuates and emphasizes his tweets with them, almost seemingly at random. I'm starting to believe the TLO commentator awhile back that compared him to Perd Hapley might have been on to something.


Groaaaaan, Chesky. Groan.


Most subversive commercial on television. I love it too. My mom enjoys it a bit too much for my tastes, though...


If the basketball thing doesn't work out, Blake, we can always usa an editor around here.


One last Twitter search of the words "Fuck Oklahoma." Here we go:

Awkward Twitter Conversations With Linda Cavanaugh

Oh... God... Abigail Ogle Is Going To Run This Town Someday, Isn't She?

I know, I know. It sounds ridiculous. But let me say: let those of you who have not used the whims of Twitter users to decide what your name is cast the first stone.


The Dean Blevins Memorial Weekly Tweet From Dean Blevins

Yes, folks. Dean Blevins watches non-3D broadcasts with 3D glasses on. I don't know what one can add to that.

That's it for me. Marisa will be here next week. Follow me on Twitter here. Good bye!
