Twitter takes from Jack Bauer (played by our own David Zizzo)

Anyone who knows me knows that really like “24.”

It’s a drama on FOX where Kiefer Sutherland saves the world just about every hour within one specific day. A season of 24 episodes will cover every hour of a day in real time. We can only hypothesize that food and bathroom breaks are taken during the commercials that run in every episode. Either that, or Jack Bauer (played by Keifer Sutherland) has an iron bladder.

Having said all that, I’m also on Twitter. And David Zizzo wrote a great humor column today about what Jack Bauer would be saying if he were using Twitter during his wild terror-fighting days.

For example:

It’s 11 a.m. and I’ve only resorted to enhanced interrogation twice. Must be a holiday.


Did you know a soda bottle, some muriatic acid and aluminum foil make a cool bomb? I’d kill for some Cheetos and a Red Bull.

Read the entire column here.

Twitter is a source for many funny bits on the Web these days. It’s a easy target for skeptics. So I see a lot of these kind of quips about the social media platform.

But David’s was one to read, expecially if you’ve ever seen an episode of  ’24.’

It funny to me, because I’ve seen every episode of ’24.’
