Hey ladies: RT if you've got butt zits.— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) November 4, 2011
This is the first tweet I ever re-tweeted for obvious reasons.

Also, I'm drinking a latte in bed watching Quantum Leap. Move over DiCaprio. I'm the king of the world.— Sara Bareilles (@SaraBareilles) May 23, 2012
Finally Quantum Leap jokes are starting to catch on! I have been like Gretchen Weiners trying to make “fetch” happen with this topic and so far, I have been unsuccessful - until now, for which I tip my hat to you, Sarah Bareilles.

Haven't opened my Bday gifts, but I heard a giggle coming from the linen closet, so I'm pretty sure I'm gettin a Sisstah Waaahff!#fingersxd— Ana Gasteyer (@AnaGasteyer) May 4, 2012
This just made me laugh so hard.
7. Elisa Markus (Chicago-Based Blogger/Comedy Writer and Mother of my Children)
On a scale of zero to narcissus, how do you rate recording yourself doing an impression of yourself?— Elisa Markus(@elisamarkus) March 27, 2012
Elisa is not the mother of my children but if she was, I would hope that they would get her sense of humor and my ability to sweat while sitting down.

Ugh. I can already tell this lead flight attendant was a musical theatre major.— Chris Kelly (@imchriskelly) December 30, 2011
Maybe it’s because I went to a really intense theatre school, but I totally I.D. with Kelly’s aggravation in this tweet. While I became good friends with most of the musical theatre majors I went to college with, I can now spot them from a mile away.
5. Chelsey Peretti (Oprah and Gayle’s Third) @chelseavperetti
Basically everything she posts. Her incredibly comedic, fantastical and invasive style of tweeting makes me feel equal parts mesmerized and uncomfortable. She has a way of using self-promoting self-pics and unusually placed CAPS LOCK - from claiming that her cell phone pictures are professional headshots to personally appealing to stars like Beyonce to share their feelings with the world that really chills me to the bone and brings a smile to my face.

One of the nation’s defense agencies has a new app out for tracking Santa Claus. So it sounds like we’re finally going to capture the SOB.— Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) December 16, 2011
Try to never think about this tweet when your child relatives are bothering the shit out of you about Santa.
3. Jessi Klein (Stand-Up Comic, Foxy Nerd)
Anyone else think Michele Bachmann is making it rain at Anne Taylor Loft right now? #retailtherapy— Jessi Klein (@jessirklein) January 5, 2012
I once met her after a show in Columbus and she’s super down-to-earth and really just as foxy in real life. I love this joke as much as I hate Michelle Bachmann. Which is monumental.
2. Christine Nangle (SNL Writer, UCB Alum, Creator of “I Wanna Have Your Baby”)
I've tried to treat my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome by putting an aspirin between my knees but I don't think it's working? I'll keep u posted— Christine Nangle (@nanglish) February 18, 2012
I am a twenty-something woman with a degree in English with a minor in women’s studies from a small, liberal arts school in the Midwest. If there’s one thing I love it’s low-impact angry feminist activism through social media.

WHERE IS MY FUCKING MEDITATION CANDLE?!!!!— Paula Pell (@perlapell) March 23, 2012

Sometimes I dip a vegetable in so much ranch dressing that it really is just being used as a spoon. Sometimes I also just use a spoon.— Paula Pell (@perlapell) October 28, 2011
Paula Pell gets me because I always say that all food is really just a vehicle for eating ranch dressing. Thank you Paula for being my ranch dressing-loving, queer role model. PLEASE LET ME BE YOUR GAYBY.
