There is a very funny trend right now on Twitter called, "1st draft movie lines", which is exactly what it sounds like. People are "twittering" what they think the first line of a famous movie line would be before it got tweeked by the writers. I'm enjoying them. I'm going to list some of my favorites and their "twitterers"....(writers)

You have to have a pretty good knowledge of movies (pop=culture) to get some of these, so test yourself. You don't win a single thing, but if you know the original, it makes these that much funnier.

From Tim Carvell (one of the writers for The Dailey Show)

"I wish we could chat longer, but I'm eating an old friend for dinner.

"Bond. James Bond, D.D.S."

"Play it for me, Sam. Play 'Pop Goes the Weasel'."

"I have one word for you. Just one word. Adultery. Possibly with Mr. Robinson's wife. She seems like the type."

and now, Rainn Wilson (Dwight Shrute from The Office)

"The first rule of Fight Club is: everyone *has* to bring something for pot-luck Mondays."

"Rosebutt, Rosebutt!"

A friend of Mindy Kaling (who plays Kelly on the The Office)

@DougBenson"You had me when you burst in here and said 'Hello.'

someone I follow named Jordan Rubin:

"I'm not surprised that it wasn't anyone else, Fredo.

"I'm Tarzan-- Jane, right?

"Go ahead, plan my day."

And now, Rob Corddry: (comedy actor/writer)

I'm Bruce Wayne! I mean... crap" (I cleaned that up...sorry)

"Shirley, you can't be serious" "I AM Shirley, & don't call me serious!"

"Toga Party tonight at the Delta House! Toga Party tonight at the Delta House! 456 Fraternity Row! Around tenish?!"

"Attica State Correctional Facility! Attica State Correctional Facility!"

"Adrian! Excuse me! Adrian!

"Surely you can't be serious!" "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley" "No, 'surely', s-u-r-e-l-y" "Oh, my bad.
