And now the fake tweets

Norm MacDonald trolls Lena Dunham, Rachel Maddow, and others.

The thing I like most about this is that he didn’t do that stupid thing where you @reply with a period. When people do that it’s like they want me to pay attention to them.

But not Norm. These were for him. Below are a few of my favorites.



Somehow, Norm MacDonald became Twitter’s Breaking Bad authority.

He believes it may have all been a dream.

Oh, pardon me:

Norm / Ladies

The Guardian on Norm Macdonald.

Rather than seeming to notice things because he’s perceptive, however (in the way that Michael McIntyre, for instance, might), Macdonald takes a different pose. Sure, this is observational comedy, but here the observer sounds like a kind of idiot savant, or perhaps someone only very recently removed from a log cabin. Macdonald sees only “ladies” instead of women. His alcoholics speak about their addiction to “the demon rum”. When someone is told not to pry, the reason is it’s “none of your beeswax”. It enables him to visit the blackest areas – such as cancer, alcoholism or how best to go about stalking, capturing and murdering a woman – with extraordinary wit and charm. At the same time, his numbness seems to be the result of this black world.

Growing up and watching Norm is the reason why I say “ladies” instead of women. Over time I’ve found “women” to be very blunt and “ladies” to indicate something more gentle and delicate. This, I’ve been told, makes me sexist and old-fashioned.
