Everybody is a comedian on Twitter, but only a select few are truly 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 and momentarily forget that other days of the week exist.
(If you're reading this from an RSS feed, jump on over to the website where you can actually view the tweets for an optimal level of enjoyment.)
Aparna Nancherla (@aparnapkin) has appeared in person at the Bentzen Ball, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, and her image and voice was able to be seen and heard via cathode ray tubes on Last Comic Standing 6. Despite all of that, Aparna doesn't seem like the most positive person.
DON'T FALL FOR THIS SCAM: Hopes and dreams
She's not a phone person.
My hit song would be "Text Me Only"
Nancherla can be as lazy as the rest of us sometimes.
"oh did you mean right now"-my ambition
Her breakfast talks to her.
WHO AM I?-Everything Bagel
And her other meals sound just as eventful.
Any pizza can be a personal one if you cry while you eat it.
She wants more out of her hugs.
I wish there were gloryholes for hugs.
Aparna is the people's comedian.
I put on my pants just like you, reluctantly, when the doorbell rings.
Nancherla has a knack for naming things.
If Google+ and Google Street View have a baby, they should name it 1984.
Hey, if you wanna name your kitties Yasser Aracat and Ariel Purron, I'll be the last to stop you. But FYI, they are going to fight A LOT.
But she still has a lack of self esteem.
If you have a problem with me, get in line. I was here first.
Sometimes it seems like Aparna just wants to disappear.
OOPS PUT ON TOO MUCH AGE-DEFYING MAKEUP & NOW I LOOK LIKE A SONOGRAM
If you thought the booing at Occupy Wall Street was bad…
Did you know only 1% of ghouls & terror fiends receive compensation for 99% of the scaring done? Tonight's the night! OCCUPY ELM STREET.
Aparna is a freelance copy writer.
For online relationships, the Skype's the limit!
And a freelance investigative reporter.
The hot question on everybody's mind in this busy coffee shop is "Are you leaving?"
Nancherla wants you to be careful about what medications you take.
Laughter is the best medicine UNLESS YOU GOT A CASE OF THE GIGGLES
She cannot stress enough.
I cannot stress this enough: anxiety.
Aparna loves Lewis Black's bit about it being time to wake up.
Lewis Black sounds like how an alarm clock would talk.
Nancherla knows that sometimes serial killers can't hack it on the weekends.
"Another Saturday night & I ain't got no body."-Lonely Serial Killer
You probably shouldn't thank Aparna for anything, even if you truly mean it.
I feel like sarcasm won "Thanks a lot" in a custody battle with sincerity, and it's never coming back.
Because there is no such name as O. Dahugh…
There better be a manatee named Hugh

Roger Cormier will take any thanks, sarcastic or otherwise.
