Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

It’s almost time to tweet like Werner Herzog!

If you’re like me, you love Werner Herzog.

And if you’re like me, you love @WernerTwertzog even more!

See, @WernerTwertzog tweets like Werner Herzog would tweet if he tweeted. He tweets things like: “It is important for fitted sheets to slip off the mattress to make us despair of ever finding true rest in this life.”

Or: “First, they came for the Nihilists, and I did nothing.”

Or: “Dear America: You are waking up, as Germany once did, to the awareness that 1/3 of your people would kill another 1/3, while 1/3 watches.”

Well, September 5th is Hertzog’s annual “Tweet Like Werner Herzog” Day, and I already have a bunch lined up.

Here’s one: “Life is a series of grotesque ironies interrupted only by the awareness that all pleasure is illusion. Laugh clown laugh. #Twertzog”

It’s fun, but, like everything in this life, entirely pointless. Join me, won’t you?

Use the hashtag #Twertzog and tweet like Werner Hertzog on September 5th!

Here’s a little post I ran about Werner a few years back to whet your whistle.
