gallery2r2Listen, I am fairly new to writing on InsulinFunk, but let’s get one thing straight: I geek out when it comes to meeting famous people. From getting pictures with them, to reading about the kinds of lattes they drink, to having their dog’s names be less weird than their kid’s names and to even getting twitter responses from them. Thus is the case this time around. Long story short… Jimmy Fallon twittered me.

Now hopefully you all know what Twitter is by now, and if not you’re about to alert the authorities on my behalf. Thank you for your concern. I am fine. Anyway, this past Saturday I was catching up with the latest DVRed episode of Smallville (nice try with the whole “going back in time” routine, writers) when I checked Twitter to notice that comedian and talk show host Jimmy Fallon was sending out messages from his personal page to people. I thought I’d have a go at it myself. Here is what transpired:

(read from the bottom-up to make it make sense.)


I know what you’re thinking. It’s either one of two things. 1: “Man, that is awesome. You are a Greek god and I love that your Twitter picture is a floating head.” Or 2. “Man, you’re an idiot. He only said two words to you. Get a life and a body for your floating Twitter head.”

Now you listen here you– although I agree that it was rather abrupt, I still appreciate him taking the time to do things like that for the general publis. A lot of celebrities don’t do that (I’m looking at you Soleil Moon Frye. Just kidding). The only other time that almost happened was when MC Hammer sent me a direct message apologizing for “tweeting” too much when I told him I was going to delete him for doing just that. Anyway, I want to say thank you Mr. Fallon for twittering me. If you ever need anyone to come on your show to talk about Twitter, Chevy Chase movies, various cheeses or how cute baby tigers are– here’s my email address blake@insulinfunk.net . Congrats on the success that your show is having and many successes in the future.

Sincerely your Twitter friend,
