Celeb Tweets

  • Jesse Case (@jessecase): I've spent a few nights in jail. I've had 2 years of stage 4 cancer treatment. I wrote a will at 29. I've gotten sober and stuck with it. I built a good comedy career from nothing. And STILL, the hardest thing I've ever done is tried to give my cat a goddamn pill.
  • Dana Gould (@danagould): Naming a dolphin Flipper is like naming a baby Arm.
  • Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien): Is it possible the stock market keeps fluctuating so much because there’s a cat sitting on its keyboard?
