Who You Gonna Tweet?

Anybody remember that awesome 80's movie "Ghostbusters"? It had quite a cult following, and that line, "Who you gonna call?", from its theme song became pretty famous. In my college days, whenever we were in trouble or had a problem, my friends and I would joke around and say, "Who you gonna call"? That famous Ghostbusters' line was just a classic!!! Well nowadays people don't really call anybody anymore, with all these new fangled inventions like FaceBook, texting and Twitter.

Hell, if you are Amanda Bynes, a C rated celebrity at best, and get arrested for DUI, you ain't gonna call nobody. Nope, you gonna tweet the commander in chief and plead your case like the twittiot you are. Yeppers, when Ms. Bynes was charged with DUI after she allegedly struck an LA County sheriff's cruiser, she sent this tweet, "Hey @Barack Obama I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end". Shockingly, the President did not respond to Ms. Bynes' tweet.

Ya gotta give the gal credit for having some cajones, and for being so completely self absorbed that she actually thought that giving a shout out to the leader of the free world by Twitter could help her outta her sticky situation. Oh yea, and since when does a police officer get fired for simply doing his job? Of course celebrities are above the law aren't they? Silly me for thinkin' otherwise. Ya know, maybe if this chick was some HUGE celebrity like Oprah I could kinda understand the tweet? Oprah would get results fo' sho!!!! Of course with the millions that Oprah spent on Obama's campaign, she probably has her buddy's private line on speed dial. So, "who she gonna call"? The PREZ! I highly doubt Oprah would go slummin' on Twitter like that when she can dial direct.

So let this be a lesson to ya folks. Next time you find yourself in a quandary, ask yourself, "Who you gonna tweet"?

  1. I'm surprised she didn't invite the cop to nuzzle her boobies in return for letting her go. The president can't pull strings for hoochies, Michelle would kill him.

  2. Drunk or not, she still hit a cop. THAT is a no-no. For some reason, cops don't like random strangers crashing into their cars.

  3. If Amanda Bynes can't do it, I guess that means there's no hope for me asking Obama for help getting out of a DUI :(

  4. She always was a brilliant one. You are right...she is a "C" at best.

  5. Cleaver as usual (your article). I loved the focus on celebrities being above the law. Sad that they think they are not required to be accountable. They make tons of money, oh ya, that's the difference. Huh?
