This just cracked me up, but if you're not familiar with Twitter it might not be quite so funny.

Fantastic! "Naked chicks FTW!" I have no idea why this cracked me up so much, but my sides hurt just the same.

Thanks for sharing.

Unrelated comment here, but folks should go check out the fabulously fun query contest going on over at super-agent Nathan Bransford's blog (btw, I think you're a super-agent too, Janet). It's going to be a fun one!

I think one would have to have a working knowledge of "The Odyssey," as opposed to Twitter, but agreed- morning funny. :)

That reminded me of Pride and Prejudice, Facebook style, which makes me fall out of my chair laughing. (The Facebook Hamlet is pretty good too.)
