Because they have contrived to become famous, they are often also assumed to have intellect, character and judgment. Gazing at the magazine rack at a supermarket check-out lane should quickly relieve us of any such illusions, but alas...
One of the malicious satisfactions of being an anonymous nobody is in pointing out what pathetic dimwits most of these famous people actually are. Which leads us to today's post.
It was bright and sunny one recent morning. I was enjoying my second cup. The laptop was affixed firmly to the top of my lap as I lounged sleepily on the sofa. Suddenly I saw it: Billboard magazine's Top 20 Tweets of the Week.
"Here's our round-up of singers', rockers' and rappers' 20 coolest and funnest tweets from the past seven days."Yes, that's right -- funnest.
Even for someone who is absolutely clueless about pop culture, and has no idea who most of these cretins are, this was totally irresistible.
Now the truth is, some of these tweets are "funner" than others -- also, you have work to do this morning. So I've done a little editing for you.
Here we have The Ad Contrarian Top 10 Music Moron Tweets of the Week.

Amazing "virality" to last week's post "Why Creatives Are Always Confused." Must have touched a nerve. According to some site that measures such things, it was re-tweeted several hundred times. According to Alltop, at one point last week we had the #2 and #3 "Most Topular" advertising posts. Not bad for a cranky old fart.
