30 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of December 4, 2023
This week’s news cycle has had its fair share of high highs and low lows. Right out of the gate, George Santos has lived out his trashy reality TV star fantasies by raking in some serious dough on Cameo. So far, the disgraced Congressman has helped a furry come out to their parents and been tapped by Senator John Fetterman’s campaign team to troll another indicted politician.
The comedy world simultaneously bid farewell to Norman Lear, the sitcom genius who died at the age of 101. Lear’s storied career produced a pantheon of shows that changed the way we laugh and paved the way for every other sitcom that followed. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. is playing hard ball with the headline-making shelved movie Coyote vs. Acme. Despite no plans to release it themselves, the studio won’t let anyone else touch it unless they’re willing to cover its $70 million price tag. Sony and Apple are reported to have backed away from the mess as Amazon continues to mull over placing a bid.
Over on the timeline, though, it’s been all highs over the last seven days thanks to a new round of hilarious tweets. This week’s highlights include two sides to a Biden, a pair of Chipotle hacks and the time MLK outsold Michael Jackson.
