2012 Sala-SOTU

Since I was a little too young to achieve my boyhood dream of being a writer for Johnny Carson, I’ve been using Twitter these last few years to make as many Carson-esque “How Bad Is It” jokes about the State of the Union during the half-hour before the broadcast. With the economy in the toilet, it just seemed like the right thing to do, and now it’s become a tradition.

I just finished.  I hit 30 this year.  Two or three of them are actually funny.  These are the the one-liners for 2012:

My fellow Americans, the #StateOfTheUnion is so unproductive that it has it’s own Twitter account.

My fellow Americans, the #StateOfTheUnion is so lame that Pauly Shore will star in the Lifetime Movie adaptation.

My fellow Americans, the #StateOfTheUnion is so degrated that it’s shooting gonzo porn for drug money and sleeping with Charlie Sheen.

My fellow Americans, the #StateOfTheUnion is so disreputable that it will be the featured story on FOX & Friends tomorrow morning.
