The Dalai Lama, Meadow Soprano, and The Fonz Walk Into a Bar. . .

I follow the Dalai Lama on Twitter. The other day Twitter kindly suggested I might also enjoy following Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Henry Winkler because of my interest in the Dalai Lama.

Meadow Soprano, The Fonz, and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. They totally belong in the same club, don’t they?

My curiosity was piqued. For all I know, maybe Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Henry Winkler are spiritual, inspirational tweeters. So I did a comparison study:

“From the first day of our life until our last breath, the very foundation of our existence is affection and human wrath.” (Dalai Lama)

“The fog is lifting here in Boston. . . I can my shoes now” [sic] (Henry Winkler)

“Barbara Streisand by Duck Sauce. This song gets me every time.” (Jamie-Lynn Sigler)

Ah, yes Twitter! I can see the similarities here. They all, umm. . . use vowels! And also consonants. So they have that in common.

But while comparing these tweets I thought of a great game idea. Who wants to play. . .

NAME!
THAT!
TWEET!

  3. Thanks, Maryanne!

    And Kath--MANTINT! I love it! I hope I have the occasion to use this glorious new word soon. (But I hope the occasion is not because my husband comes home with a horrible fake tan.)
