Nihilist Arby's, on Twitter.

Doesn't post very often, but they're always funny when they do.

Doug Episodes was the best thing about Twitter until the person who ran it either sold it to a dickhead or went mad. Some old classics...

Quote
Episode 103 "Scary Party" - Doug is too afraid to attend his own birthday party after learning the cake will be a flavor he's never tasted.

Quote
Episode 119 "Doug's Ex Friend" - Doug has to stop being friends with Skeeter after he and Skeeter's dad accidentally see each other naked

Quote
Episode 124 "Doug's New Bike" - Beebe sees Doug riding a bike she threw in the garbage the day before and has him arrested.

Quote
Episode 140 "Dougie Fresh" - After Doug accidentally hears a raunchy rap song that makes him cry, he asks Skeeter if he is black.

Quote
Episode 166 "Doug Smashes the Station Wagon with a Hammer" - Doug flies off the handle when he realizes his family is poor.

EDIT: Also Coffee Dad, obviously!

Is that account really by Hurst? I don't doubt that he's given it his say-so or whatever, but it just seems unlikely that a successful and, at least at one time, relatively funny comedian could come out with such rubbish non-humour. I mean I don't agree with Geoff Norcott or find much of what he says funny, but it is still recognisably the work of someone who understands comedy. That Hurst account is absolute base-level stuff.

@inzane_johnny

His music memes are so much more on point than any other account I've come across but his content filter is non-existent and after about a week I found his constant barrage of wank insufferable.

Yeah, most of it really reads as someone doing a parody of bad humour. I can't imagine a comedian would be happy having his reputation as a funny person destroyed by approving a fake account. Unless he's doing some kind of Lou Reed or Neil Young style career sabotage or something

Hurst's politics are pretty terrible as well, judging from the most recent tweets.

'Here's a staple of 80s primetime TV...standing behind Hitler!!!'

'Here's something about football, but it's also political!!!'

'Here's a whimsical thought...with no capital letters or punctuation!!!'

That dark stock photos one is not bad. It captures the sociopathic banality of stock pics and the models within.

There's the mischief maker who made an account called "Customer Support" and changes the image to whichever firm they wish to troll customers making inbound complaints to. Well played.

I think it's the "OK thanks" that sells it though.
