Father Kelly and My Christina Applegate Connection. Twitter.





So as I mentioned last week, Sarah Silverman is following my Father Kelly character on Twitter:
http://twitter.com/FatherKelly

So the drama continues. On Friday, I noticed that I was getting a few followers every minute. I couldn't figure it out until someone DM's me and told me that Chistina Applegate (AKA @1capplegate) mentioned me on Twitter. She said:

#followfriday umm seriously funny @fatherkelly to any of my catholic followers, please do not take offense. all in good fun

Pretty cool huh? And she only follows 45 people. I look though her feed and she's mentioned Sarah Silverman so I think she found me on the list of who Sarah Silverman is following.

Then, to add the icing on the cake, I get a message from someone at Paste magazine saying I was listed in an article titled, "The Top 10 Unique, Funny or Usefull Twitter Users You Should Follow Right Now". They wrote,

5. Father Kelly - FatherKelly
In which someone in Chester County, Pa. pretends to be a Catholic priest to make religion-themed jokes.
Unique, Funny or Useful: Funny
Best Recent Tweet: A Carnie asked me to bless him. I panicked and said "Uhh..let me go get my magic wand". Then I avoided him.
Runner Up: This is BULLSHIT! I wasn't LEARING at Sister Anne while she was eating that banana! I just happened to be in stare mode!
Extra Credit: The CCD nerds gave me some "art" made from dry macaroni and yarn. Helloooo trashcan.

(To read the entire article, click: here )The weird thing is, I've had my blog since 2006 and no famous people read it (except for this person). Just you guys. I start Twitter with the Father Kelly character and I get two famous people reading it and a magazine mention. What gives?

So who would like to guess what's going to happen next?

(Please don't say "nothing").

And I know it's a bit premature, but once I get 20 famous people reading my Tweets I'm going to have a big party with them and...are you ready for this?...With 20 of you!

So please let me know what YOU can add to the party if I invite you. I will also tell you up front that you might also have to share with the catering duties. It depends how much the party costs.

Well I'm local and I'm sure I could drum up a nun's costume. ;) I'm your DM'er btw. I love capplegate - been following for awhile.

Dr Zibbs said...

And thanks for the heads up Nicole. I don't think I would have realized it was her if it hadn't been for you.

Now I keep checking new followers to make sure they're not famous. It's really getting to be a chore.

Lostinspace said...

Very awesome, Zibbs, a mention in Paste too, #5! I'm very proud of you. Now, don't let it go to your head.

Dr Zibbs said...

LostinSpace - I won't let it go to my head. As long as the nobodys know their place during the big celebrity party.

Dominica said...

This is better than winning the lotery !!

B.E. Earl said...

You are still trying to get me to use Twitter.

It still won't work.

Dr Zibbs said...

Earl - as soon as I get a famous director you're going to Twitter.

P.S. Can you be the dishwasher at the party? Thanks.

Dr Zibbs said...

Dominica - and I also just got Chris Daughtry's wife as a follower. Not really that famous but...

FunnyGal KAT said...

If I did Twitter (if I twitted?), I would definitely follow you. And one of my editors once warned another reporter and I to be aware of our behavior in public because we were-- and I quote (hence the quotation marks)-- "local celebrities." Does that count? If so, you just got your FIFTH most famous person at your blog, my friend. You can thank me later.

Youngblood4ever said...

Don't have anyone famous, but I have a pretty nice rack, I've been told. That could add some fun to the party!

Dr Zibbs said...

FunnyGal Kat - I will thank you now. Thank you.

Youngblood4ever - please send photos.

The Peach Tart said...

Well I could design an elegant celebration and prepare some stellar foods. I'd make you proud Dr. Zibbs.

Dr Zibbs said...

Sounds good Peach Tart. You're in.

You've got some class so it'll be a nice balance to some of my white trash readers.

Darius Whiteplume said...

I hope I did not block you long ago :-)

Oh, and define "famous" for reaching your twenty.

Some Guy said...

I always knew you were gonna hit it big, Zibbs. Congrats! As far what I'd bring to the party, I think you've been following me long enough to know what I have to offer. Plus, I'll bring my video camera. I will warn you upfront, though, I have been known to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes.

Peggy said...

Well well well...I go away and you get famous! Nice job Zibbs. I feel a portion of the credit should go to me b/c I pushed for you to get back into Twitter. So, you're welcome. Send cash.

westchesterdead said...

I may be able to supply a Falconer who can use his birds of prey to retrieve Andsomeguy's dick from the mashed potatoes, provided Andsomeguy is amenable to working with trained animals.

If that falls through, I'm a pretty good cook.

slopmaster said...

I think you need more loyalty to your blog readers... twitter is ridiculous and unless you're a celebrity or impersonating a catholic priest, you shouldn't be on it. So I commend you for proper use of twitter.

that is really good stuff though. But what's the big deal about celebrities?

Chaka said...

I am getting jealous. I don't use twitter, but I may start lying about what celebrities are following my blog. I could probably only get Yakov Smirnoff and Clint Howard to follow me.

Son of a Thomas said...

I can play bouncer. I have done it before and have no porb tossin out a celeb.

WendyB said...

If the paparazzi start chasing you, do NOT get in a speeding getaway car driven by a drunk! Through a tunnel! That's bad.

moooooog35 said...

I'll totally bring the Cheez Doodles.

Kimberly said...

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Dude...that's so sweet!

Amen Father Kelly!

Maybe Christina Applegate will get a job for Father Kelly writing for her little show???

Dr Zibbs said...

You never know Candy. You never know.

T-Ro said...

fatherkelly for pope!

Dr Zibbs said...

T-Ro - Thanks ye'.

Chris said...

I'd offer to bring my smokers and crank out some BBQ, but I'm afraid that my drooling over Sarah Silverman would get on the food. We can't have that. Besides, I was just in stare mode.

Grant Miller said...

Very cool. Tell SS I said "Hi!"

Former Fat Chick said...

i always knew you had a future- BURNING IN HELL!!!!!!!! wahahah, btw, I was once a pop star in Guatemala, I need to get the tape, so you can make fun of me 4-eva!

Dr Zibbs said...

Former Fat - Why aren't you posting that?? Come on!!
