Christopher Walken and Twitter

I think it takes considerable mastery of language to deliver deadpan humour on the web – so no better man than actor Christopher Walken to turn it into an artform via his Twitter feed:

I claim to be frightened of horses but do so only to get out of attending parades. It’s peculiar but has served me well. The horses get it.

I find it remarkable that these few words are so wonderfully embued with that terse dryness that fuels Walken dialogue. I can actually hear him saying it out loud…

The Pope is in Africa “reaffirming the ban on condom use.” His old stuff was funnier. I don’t get this new material. Too edgy for my taste.

Chief Bottle Washer at Blather

Writer, photographer, environmental campaigner and “known troublemaker” Dave Walsh is the founder of Blather.net, described both as “possibly the most arrogant and depraved website to be found either side of the majestic Shannon River”, and “the nicest website circulating in Ireland”. Half Irishman, half-bicycle. He lives in southern Irish city of Barcelona.
