Yeah, yeah, I know. “The Humorless Twit is behind the times.” Nyuk, nyuk. Okay. Well.

I’ve finally added the rest of the columns from 2010. Now it’s on to 2011…

Que Funny

Just posted the September 2010 column, The Humorless Twit Es Bilingual. Here’s a short excerpt:

Because Miami has such a large Spanish-speaking population, you’ll see many businesses catering to this population with signs and literature in Spanish. But because these businesses are located in the United States, they still have to keep one foot, as it were, in the English world. This sometimes results in unintentionally funny (to “Spanglish” speakers, anyway) placards and the like.

Photos of these unintentionally funny signs have made their way around the Internet, in much the same way as photos of hilariously translated signs (from Chinese or Japanese) have been posted on the funny and famous website Engrish.com (one of my favorite sites, by the way).

Before we forget, just a little note to let you know we’ve updated the World’s Most Boring Website. We redesigned it–we know, it begs the question “Why would you want to redesign a boring website?”

We’ve added a ton more stuff to it, most notably, one of the most boring books we’ve ever tried unsuccessfully to read all the way through: War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy.

atomium

I saw this article on Yahoo Travel today about weird buildings (with pictures!) and I wanted to post some of the pics here but I realize they’re probably copyrighted. But that’s okay, I found a picture of one of the buildings (see above), known as the Atomium, on a royalty-free photo website I often use.

The Atomium is located in Brussels, Belgium. It was actually constructed for the 1958 World Fair.

Pretty neat, huh?

The Humorless Twit is now available on your cell phone! Now you can go mobile with the Twit and read our columns anywhere (our personal favorite reading spot is the john). If your cell phone doesn’t automatically pick up the mobile version of the site, there’s a link at the bottom of the page (and a link to the mobile site here too).

So now you don’t have any excuses for not reading The Humorless Twit! Well, except for that whole quality (or lack thereof) issue.
