Follow Friday: @Pete_Schultz
Everybody fancies themselves as some sort of wizard that can conjure up laughter by a few strokes of a keyboard, but only a few tweeters 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 that you might not know about 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.)
Peter Schultz (@Pete_Schultz), is an SNL Weekend Update writer and UCB person that has entertained twitter folk with a slew of funny tweets. It’s time to find out more about Peter.
He can never really enjoy the Game of Thrones books.
When you read the sex scenes in Game of Thrones, you can practically feel George R. R. Martin's hot breath on your neck.

I am "just had to google what twerking is" years old.

Schultz’s late nights watching forgotten eighties movies have blended together.

They have lead to a lot of moments of wisdom.

Contemporary movies just end up making him embarrassed.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I did really think that Jason Bourne was the whole story.

But sometimes they leave him satisfied.
When I saw Pitch Black back in 2000, I remember thinking "That was ok, but I sure could use a few more decades of this Riddick character."

From a specific genre of movies, Peter has repeatedly learned a valuable lesson.
If you're the character in a Hallmark movie who doesn't believe in magic, prepare to be so wrong.

And has made a final judgment on another.
The logo for M. Night Shyamalan's production company should just be the Rotten Tomatoes green splatter.

Schultz has found that TV shows also follow specific patterns.
Fuck Marry Kill is both a game and the progression of a Dateline episode.

And for a certain town.
Wait, who has been watching George Zimmerman's neighborhood this whole time???

Schultz sometimes only sees numbers.
Prop 8 overturned! Still looks like an 8, though.

Peter can see through people.
#SignsYoSonIsGay He creates a homophobic hashtag as a smokescreen .

This past presidential election was stressful for Schultz.
Can't wait til this election is over and I can go back to forgetting which of my facebook friends has opinions that make me uncomfortable.

Welcome to Florida. Feel free to shoot anything that isn't a Manatee.

But has never been to San Diego.
Wait- I thought the mayor of San Diego was a sea lion in a Billabong tank top?

That doesn’t make him any less patriotic.
Labor Day is a good time to reflect on how lucky we are to live in a country that doesn't throw extraneous u's into words.
