Funny intern stories in 140 characters

Jenna Johnson

This is my third week of compiling a list of the funniest internship-related tweets. Kudos to the tweeters who write cute, interesting, wonderful things about their interns/internships. But for everyone else, I have two pieces of advice:

Interns -- Stop publicly bashing your bosses on Twitter.
Bosses -- Stop publicly bashing your interns on Twitter.

(Actually, please keep going. This is a lot of fun.)

@taku27 Screw the new intern. June 23

@DeBo_XL @GabeTheWP Take the intern out to a firing squad of dodgeball throwers. June 23

@jetjocko Yes, okay, we hired the intern candidate who wrote part of her interview thank-you note in Klingon. Too on the nose? June 23

@ChefAllisonDCCK "have I had whole wheat pancakes? that's like asking if I have ever had an apple" well then, sounds like this stage intern is a good fit. June 21

@tajboogiee Omg! My internship = emotional abuse.... It could ruin ya life June 21

@thewhitesmoking I have no real job in a land with no real perspectives. I keep paying to extend a free-internship visa. Today I do feel like a loser. June 22

@lady_alkro I shouldn't be happy that my boss isn't feeling well, but I am glad that I don't have to wake up early for my internship tomorrow. June 23

@Budwt First idea, an intern-powered wind turbin. Since they can't do anything also, I could ask them to peddle it to generate electricity. June 23
