Some Tweets read: “I didn’t say you were ugly. I said your girlfriend is better looking than you, and standing next to her, you look ugly.”

“A parent’s only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed.”

Justin Halpern, has only tweeted just over 100 times but has already turned his popular feed (more than one million followers) into a novel that has made the New York Times bestseller list for non-fiction.

Boston Legal star William Shatner is set to play the father in the new TV series .

“I’m on CBS this fall. I just heard so I’m passing it on to you! My best, Bill,” the Age quoted him as writing on Twitter.

The comedy is tentatively titled ‘Bleep My Dad Says’. (ANI)
