Katy, FYI, it is much easier to get a kidney than a liver. Why you ask?

I finally got around to watching all of the Twits & I gotta say, it's gotta be best use of the word twit ever!

Kudos to the actors & actresses that "portrayed" the Twits.

I now understand why Barbara Walters won her Lizzie for Most Confounding Celebrity Twitter.

Oh, man, I have to admit (being a non-twitterer), I wasn't sure the quality of the twits could keep up - bravo, Liz! Bravo!

You should have a contest for one of us regular schmos to be in one!

I'm going to have that bass line running through my head for the rest of the day.

Ummm, note to the WaPo headline writer.

There's a difference between "celebrity twits" and "celebrity tweets."

A "celebrity tweet" would be Paris Hilton saying, "ZOMG this is the greatest handbag perfect for my hand-picked dog!"

A "celebrity twit" would be Paris Hilton.

Ryan, that was amazing. Especially the creepy smile at the end of the "smile to be happy" one.
