Everybody is a comedian on Twitter, but only a select few are worthy enough to have all of their witticisms transmitted to you, the ever busy comedy fan trying to navigate through an increasingly congested internet. Every Friday we’ll make your life a little bit easier by introducing you to an individual who consistently makes us laugh. You’re welcome.

Paula Pell (@perlapell) is best known for being an Emmy award winning writer for SNL. Paula’s been writing there for so long that she once appeared on camera to take a punch from host Alec Baldwin – when he was hosting for only the ninth time. Much more recently, Pell portrayed Ron Swanson’s grizzled, moonshine gulping mother on Parks and Recreation.

With those credits in mind, it’s okay that she ruined Q-Tips forever.
