Oscar Tweets! We cracked jokes for the 2nd half of the Oscars. And they’re all below. Eat it up:
In chronological order from Best score onward…
Ok, in the first WTF moment of the Oscars: best score as interpreted by dance. Right now the cinematographers are going “you didn’t even show clips of our work (you know…the VISUAL part of a film?) so you’d have enough time for this crap?!”
Whenever a special effects guy says the company name WETA (wet-ah) I have to giggle. Heh, he said wet-ah. Heh.
Funny #Oscars commercial sign-off: “Will best director be a woman? The first black man? Orrr…..another white guy.”
I was just about over my suicidal tendencies until I saw the best documentary nominees. FTW
Avatar wins best cinematographer. Isn’t every Avatar award really for James Cameron & oh, people he hired because the unions said he had to?
Jeff Bridges wins Best Actor. Personally I thought Jeff Bridges was better in King Kong. Robbed that year.
Does Jeff Bridges beard and mustache on #Oscars remind you of snowman Burl Ives? Twins! http://5z8.info/malicious-cookie_s8o0x_boobs
Michael Sheen on stage calling Helen Mirren sexy. I get it. But ka-reeeeepyyy.
Oprah one of presenters for Best Actress. Oprah: “James Cameron, congrats on Avatar’s billion dollar box office grosses. By the way, I make that in a month.”
When they show the cast of “Precious” at the Oscars I don’t see Golem. Rrrrracist!
Sandra Bullock best actress Oscar: Sandra to the world: “you shit on me for ‘All About Steve’. But now, you can suck it.”
Kathryn Bigelow best director for Hurt Locker. Personally I think Kathryn Bigelow did a better job in “Point Break”. Robbed that year.
Hurt Locker best picture. Oh say it, Kathryn! Say it! “I’m the queen of the world!”
Ebert’s a funny guy. RT @ebertchicago Guys half drunk, watching at home: “That Kathryn Bigelow is a fine woman.”
The POT is following 300 twitter people and Ebert is the funniest one? We gotta follow funnier people.
Ok, POT founders off to crash 7 diffrent Oscar parties with a few Brazilian swimsuit models. 3 parties of which we’re actually invited to.
…Actually the models were invited. We just supply them coke, which gives you special privileges.

Power of Thrust#371: Late Friday afternoon is what I like to call “pretending to work time”.
POT #611 A creative mind can rationalize anything. For example, I ate a slice of fatty chocolate cake today cuz hey, its Friday!
Just talked to a celebrity’s mom, producer of her daughter’s film I’m working on. POT# 589 Nepotism is bisexual. It swings both ways.
That’s Power of Thrust worthy! RT@fatgator Taking a husband antiquing is like bringing a bowling ball surfing
I love the word “phlegm”. I don’t know what’s funnest: saying it, spelling it or coughing it up and spitting it out.
I just turned up the volume on a German movie that’s subtitled. I don’t understand German. Why the hell did I do that?

Is it me or is the best part of this Thanksgiving football game between the Cowboys and Raiders when they cut to the cheerleaders?
We are thankful for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.
Happy Thanksgiving from The Power of Thrust!
The definition of Kanye West…
Kanye- adj., verb, noun (kah’n-yay) A new term to describe someone going over the top to act like an egotistical attention seeking douche bag. “Alright, we get it. Don’t get all Kanye on us.”
Power of Thrust #801: Sometimes its socially acceptable to make fun of a group of people, especially if that group of people wears T-shirts with howling wolves on them.
The T-shirt itself is pretty tight. But check out the hilarious comments at the bottom. All 669 of them. Such as “The wolves spoke to me in a language all their own; it was like German, Mongol, and Bitchin all mixed together.”
Or “I’m also more confident at work, and expect to be promoted to cashier soon.”
Or “I believe that wearing this t-shirt has made me a better man, which is remarkable because, well….I’m a chick.”
Amazon.com comment section as comedy. Brilliant.

News: Earth Worm Union Claims Animals With No Faces Are Discriminated Against And Michael Vick Proves It
HAMPTON, Va.- The leader of the Earth Worm Union spoke in front of a packed mound of soil today claiming that people don’t show the same outrage with fishing related worm abuse as when NFL pro football player Michael Vick was found guilty of running a dog fighting ring. Vick was released May 20, 2009 to finish his prison sentence in home confinement.
“Its not fair,” claimed the worm union president, Westminster Wormly. “Imagine if someone took you out of your house, away from your family, stuck you in the gut with a big hook, then threw you in the water just so a bigger animal could eat you! And half the time they throw the fish back!”
“Why doesn’t anyone care,” he yelled as a crowd of supporters squirmed in approval. “I think I speak for all of God’s creatures that don’t have faces when I say that’s bull fucking shit,” he added.
People fall hook line and sinker for that…well, puppy dog act. Dogs bite you, shit on your carpet and give you rabies. When’s the last time a worm gave you rabies? Huh? Fucking rabies, people!”
“Well, worms can’t fight,” Vick responded. “Sure, maybe it’s true that if they had a mouth they could scream. Or eyes they could cry. But if God didn’t give them a face then that means he didn’t want them to express their feelings and therefore no one should care.”
“Worms are pretty useless,” Vick said. “All they do is lay there and wiggle. Reminds me of my first prom date.”
Vick added, “We used to call her jello. Whenever I would go down on her she’d gasp for air and then her hips would shoot up…I’m sorry, I’m getting off the subject. What were we talking about?”
The worm union later issued a formal response “What a dumb fucker. I swear if you humans let him play football again you’re a bunch of sellouts. And when you do you’ll be hearing from the dog union cuz that shit’s just wrong. Vick barely completed 53% of his passes anyway.”

More racist Adam Carolla comments…about NCAA national champs Duke University!
Adam isn't racist. He hates skinny white kids too. (photo via http://manaa.blogspot.com/2009/03/adam-carolla-takes-it-all-back-in-last.html)
“Comedian” Adam Carolla made some racial remarks on his podcast about the Philippines when a caller asked him about Philippine world champion boxer Manny Pacquiao.
“…he’s, ya know, praying to chicken bones and stuff like that.”
“Here’s how you know your country doesn’t have a lot going for it: when everything is about Manny Pacquiao.”
“Get a fucking life as a country.”
“All you fucking got is this illiterate guy who won’t give up blood who happens to smash other guys in the head better than other people?”
“They got this and sex tours. That’s all they have over there. Get your shit together, Philippines. Jesus Christ.”
There’s more and it gets worse but you get the picture. If you haven’t heard the original remarks you can cringe here:
Carolla recently made more questionable comments about Duke winning the NCAA men’s basketball national championship. Racist? You decide…
(to hear all the original remarks first, scroll to the bottom)
From Adam Carolla’s Douche cast:
“Here’s how you know your school doesn’t have a lot going for it: Because everything is about basketball!”
“Get a fucking life as a school. Is all you fucking got these skinny white guys, who happen to put an orange ball into a hoop better than other people? And be a top 10 national university? That’s all you have?!”
“Really? You want some guy with a Duke edumacation running your country? Why don’t you get your shit together?! They got this and masters degrees! That’s all they have over there! Get your shit together, Duke! Jesus Christ!”
“That’s it. I say get a life. Don’t live vicariously through some dude who’s been to like, 11 final fours, won 4 national championships and a gold medal. What does that prove? I can’t even say his name: Zysweski? Potesky? Roman Polanski? They’re all child molesters at Duke!”
Carolla thinks Duke is gay. He doesn't like gays either.
“That’s the beauty of my career. I got way to much shit going on and other more talented people to leach off of that I couldn’t possibly leach off just one. Or base my existence off of an education. I was in one episode of “Son of the Beach” called “Penetration Island” for crying out loud!”
“Hey I’m not racist. I try to be provocative, funny. I got way to much shit going on than to build my entire existence being racist against educated white guys. Like being racist against chinks, porch monkeys, spics, wops, kikes. You’re racist against one group then move on. You’re like, hey the Academy Awards are on. But its not like its all white people! Oh wait….um, anyway… Get your shit together, Duke! Jesus Christ!”
Carolla thinks these white guys need to get a life. National championship trophy? Is that all you got?
“Do they have sex tours there? At Duke? Was it Duke or Thailand? I’ve heard about sex but never had it. Except with those farm animals once. But that chicken was asking for it. Then I ate her and worshiped her bones. Gave the term “eating her out” a whole new meaning, heheh. What? Oh I’m creepy? Duke’s coach is a child molesting film director and I’m the creepy one?”
“Book that sex tour for me on Priceline with William Shatner. Yes, I’d like to have sex with William Shatner. I like licking old white men’s balls. See, how can I be racist against the whites if I like licking white balls? Answer that.
“Look, I’m sorry if I offended you. But I’m not racist. Its not like I go on a racist tirade because I’m going to get more publicity from it than anything that’s happened in my career the last 10 years. Oh wait….um, anyway… Get your shit together, Duke! Jesus Christ!”
“By the way, I think Coach Kris Kringle Polanski is a wonderful mother. For a white guy.”
EDITOR NOTE: To his credit, Carolla issued an apology to a nation of 90 million via twitter.
