Entertain yourself with these parodies
Twitter has become much more than a communications outlet or marketing tool. Now characters from favorite fictional stories, religious and political figures, animals, and even the Superbowl lights have parody accounts. Here are a few standouts:
@VeryGrumpyCat: This furious feline is known for pissed-off tidbits and his angry, frowning photo. His tweets are aggressive and hilarious. Some favorites: “Fat single, and ready for a pringle,” and “The older I get, the more I understand Squidward’s anger.” The grumpy cat has almost 432,000 followers, and there are tons of alternate versions of this handle, ranging from @grumpyycat to @verygrumpypussy.
F is for friends who don’t talk to you. U is for Ur alone. N is for never having any plans at all, all you do is sit at home.

@Lord_Voldemort7: The Dark Lord is very active on Twitter, with more than 2 million followers and over 5,000 tweets. He occasionally responds to the trending topics, like this one: “#ThingsYouShouldntDo: Tell Harry Potter that you are ‘dead Sirius.’” Most of the time, Voldy spends his time commenting on pop culture happenings, such as the Oscars, and makes sure to add in a little HP twist each time.
Harry Potter is dancing at the #Oscars2013. Did Bellatrix put him under the imperius curse from the audience?

@TheTweetOfGod: The Almighty Father is now more accessible than ever. He weighs in on current events and makes funny jokes about Himself and His kingdom: “In heaven we make the best Bloody Marys. The secret? Real Mary.” God has also taken a liking to certain celebrities: “Every time Beyoncé talks about Me, she’s really talking about Beyoncé.” His Twitter bio gives a preview of his more eccentric tweets: “I’m your dope-ass divinity, trollin’ with My trinity, tossin’ mad tweets in your immediate vicinity, flingin’ fly phrases from the fringes of infinity.”
Is life fair? Short answer, no. Long answer, nooooooo.

@PimpBillClinton: This slightly-too-pervy account gives us the worst made-up Clinton quotes and never fails to make followers uncomfortable. Others have tried to create presidential parody accounts, but none have come quite as close to 300,000 followers like the faux 42nd prez has. With absurd tweets such as “You haven’t lived if you haven’t laid on a waterbed drinking a Coors Light and eating a McRib while watching a Cops marathon” and “Woke up with my big toe in Martha Stewart’s mouth,” it’s easy to see why all of his followers can’t get enough of Pimp Bill C.
The best part about being President was not having to worry about drug tests. — Bill Clinton (@PimpBillClinton) February 22, 2013
@Queen_UK: Elizabeth Windsor, the longest-reigning Queen of England to date, has some pretty big admirers—of her parody account. This gin-obsessed “queen” tweets about texts she supposedly gets from Prince Harry, the Pope, and other notable characters. Some fan favorites: “Text from the Pope ‘Final balcony appearance: DONE! I am outta here baby! Big up the retirement!’ Not replying” and “Unrelentingly hungover. Mouth as dry as Gandhi’s flipflop.”
Diving into a Monday night gin. #onitlikeabonnet
