Twitter after Ashton Kutcher: Did it just jump the shark?

April 27, 2009 |  1:28 pm

Ashtonkutcher I don't know if "Dodger Talk" host -- and Emmy-winning TV comedy writer -- Ken Levine is really having a colonoscopy today, but he sure milks the idea for all its worth with this great new post spoofing the overkill of inane musings that seems to dominate the world of tweet-dom these days.

If you've begun to worry that perhaps we're all OD-ing on mindless Ashton-Kutcher-style Twit Chat, this could be the coup de grace. A brief sample of Levine's faux-twittering: 

Okay. Starting to take the stuff.

Ugggghhh! It tastes terrible. Mood: Irritable.

Thinking of a Staycation this year. Any suggestions where I could stay?

It's been a half hour. When is this stuff supposed to work?

45 minutes. Still nothing.

An hour. What's the deal???

Just filled out my All-Star ballot.

[EXPLETIVE DELETED} !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kill me NOW!!!!!!!!!!

YEOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's working.

Oh, Christ! I forgot. Today's the day we scheduled an OPEN HOUSE here.

No, you can't see the bathroom. It's currently occupied. 

Hey my legs have gone to sleep. Has that ever happened to you?
