36 of the Funniest Tweets from Monday, January 22, 2024
Looks like Goofy got the last hyuck hyuck. Ron DeSantis officially suspended his abysmal bid for the Republican presidential nomination yesterday. The Florida governor, who will now be most famous for his ill-advised attempt to take on Walt Disney and his alleged use of lifts, took to Twitter to make the announcement with a video complete with a fake quote misattributed to Winston Churchill and an official endorsement of Donald Trump, the man who gleefully tore DeSantis (and his lifts) apart on the campaign trail. The end of the DeSantis campaign leaves Trump and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley as the primary’s final combatants in a race that’s feeling more and more like an episode of Veep.
Speaking of TV shows, over at MTV, the writers of the series keeping the lights on at the network are ready to strike. Despite producing 336 episodes a year, Ridiculousness scribes find it rather ridiculous that they’re “currently compensated at a rate well below (their) peers” and are preparing to fight for a contract that fairly reflects the work they put in to bringing the long-running clip show to life. They’ve attempted to meet with host and co-creator Rob Dyrdek for assistance, but to no avail.
Thankfully, just as the news of the week is ramping up, hilarious tweets are flooding onto the timeline. Today’s funniest ones include those about a baby’s first intrusive thoughts, a case of the Titan Cronus and two men having an Eddie Murphy off.
