It seems that sometimes, what appears to be a shitty situation is actually a lucky break. A 29 year-old who lives with his 73-year-old dad and maintains the Twitter account “Shit My Dad Says” just got a book contract and a deal for CBS sitcom, both based on the Twitter account.

An example of shit his dad says? “You look just like Stephen Hawking…Relax, I meant like a non-paralyzed version of him. Feel better?… Fine. Forget I said it.”

The sitcom will be executive produced by the guys who conceived “Will and Grace” (Really miss that show). Read more about the deal here

So, life lesson, Yalies: start a Twitter and make sure you have a funny dad.

Other hilarious Twitter accounts:’s “fuggirls” and Tracy Morgan’s “RealTracyMorgan.”
