Larry Mendte Does Understand How Important I Am. Philly TV.



So on Twitter I just followed Larry Mendte. He's a very famous Philly market newscaster.

And I get a Twitter response saying,:

"Thank you so much for following me:) Look forward to reading what you have to say."

So I'm think, yeah right. This is automated so I write.

"OK. Is this a message you wrote and you really want to hear what I say or is this automated? I'll wait for your response. "

and then he writes back:

"Unicorn collectors ARE real babies. I do want to hear what you say :)"

And he's referring to my unicorn Twitter or blog post. Either way, I was pretty impressed. He has no idea of the fame that I have in the blog world but he decided to reach out from his media to mine. And for that, I will give him credit. I will also place him in the "FRIENDS OF THAT BLUE YAK CIRCLE" and anytime he wants to bring me to lunch? I will accept.

I officially dub him an OK dude. Good luck Mr Larry Mendte and lets stay in touch.

Cora said...

Mixing medias, hmm? World Domination is just 'round the corner, Zibbs. Can you smell it?

;-)

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora - what I can smell is the steak I'll be eating for lunch when he calls.

Gotta go. I need to check my phone messages.

I'd watch out foe that Larry if I were you.

Doesn't seem that stable.

Dr Zibbs said...

Son of a Thomas - hows about when I go to lunch with him you can come disquised as a waiter..just in case I need some back up.

Just be prepared with a waiter uniform and a fake mustache. But go easy in the phony French accent.

Kimberly said...

Wait. You're famous where?

Dr Zibbs said...

Kimberly - haha. Good one.

Former Fat Chick said...

I am so glad you have time for the little people like Larry, I find him attractive, if only he would grow a porn 'stach a la Ron Burgandy.

Slyde said...

i guess you ARE as big as youve been telling us for years :)

Heff said...

I STILL haven't heard of you.

Dr Zibbs said...

Former Fat Chick - keep it classy.

Miss Alex said...

Ha! that is fucking excellent... lol

Fancy Schmancy said...

He should feel extremely lucky that you honored him with your tweet! Too funny!

Dr Zibbs said...

But I hope he's OK because I still haven't received a call for a free lunch in one of the finer Philly steak houses.

I talk with Elvis and Juice Newton!!!

Lostinspace said...

I hope you didn't tell him your name was Alysha, cause, you know, that would be just cruel.

Jennifer and Sandi said...

sybil law said...

Wow!
I wonder who he knows that collects Unicorns. Maybe some pansy other newscaster?

Valerie said...

I am so jealous

Dr Zibbs said...

Sybil - probably. Or a sound guy.

Girl Interrupted said...

I knew you were destined for greatness.

Gotta go now ... need to look up "Larry Mendte" on Wikipedia

Dr Zibbs said...

Girl I - I'm still waiting for the call. I may need to drive the 45 minutes to Philadelphia and track him down.

A man has to eat right?

Kimmie said...

I love a smartass TV celebrity. What is he doing these days, anyway? After that stupid debacle.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kimmie - making lunch reservations I hope.
