For those who are unfamiliar with his work, Rodney Dangerfield was known in his day as ‘The King of One-Liners’. We have a feeling that if he had Twitter in his lifetime, he would have been a king of the Twitter-Sphere, too. Nominations for The Shorty Awards are upon us. And we believe that, if the star comedian was alive today, he would destroy the competition. We have compiled a list of 20 hilarious Rodney Dangerfield quotes (in under 140 characters) that would have fit perfectly on Twitter.
