Small time blogger and Twitter non-entity touts big time blogger and Twitter superstar.

Andy Borowitz writes for The New Yorker and has his own website called The Borowitz Report. You can also find his stuff on The Huffington Post, which is where I usually see it. He is an absolutely top notch comedy headline writer. His stuff shows up a few times a week over at the HuffPo and it always makes me smile at least, and often laugh out loud. Here's his headline for today, for example.

BP replaces Tony Hayward with startled deer

You might think you can write a better seven word joke given the situation. You might think that, but I'm thinkin'... prolly not.

I don't follow anyone on Twitter currently except one friend in New York who puts out about one tweet a month, but for Andy, I think I'm going to make an exception.

I believe the technical term for this is "mission creep".
