23 of the Funniest Tweets from the Week of December 25, 2023
It was another short week for many of us, but that didn’t stop it from being packed with all sorts of news. Mascots were eaten, the woman at the center of one of the buzziest murder trials in recent history was released from prison and tucked away in the announcement about a production company’s acquisition was the notion that we might be buying and trading Park Place properties on the big screen in the near future.
On that latter point, Lionsgate announced its acquisition of Entertainment One from Hasbro on Thursday. For the low price of $375 million, it added 6,500 film and television shows to its catalog, including the Nathan Fillion-led procedural The Rookie and New Jersey’s hungriest soccer team in Yellowjackets. The purchase also involved the film and TV rights to the Monopoly brand, which is likely to see some movement given Barbie’s billion-dollar success. The mustachioed man would join the likes of Jumanji, Clue and Battleship as games that made the jump from board to the screen.
Per usual, there’s also been no shortage of great tweets this week. The funniest included those about sisterly Christmas love, the White Elephant gift that would taste so good steamed with butter and the myth of the cilantro gene.
