A Birthday Spanking for Slate’s Dave Weigel


All in good fun, we’re sure, Yahoo! NewsOlivier Knox is calling for a birthday Twitter roast for Slate‘s Dave Weigel.

Happy Birthday Dave! We have absolutely nothing bad to say about him except he’s rather icy at parties these days. Um, Dave? Where did all the love go?

This could be a long day.

Of course, Weigel retweeted Knox’s request.

This all came in well before 9 a.m.

“His mother was a hamster and his father smelt of elderberries.”

birthday2“He looks young for his age.”

“He once was mistaken for Charlie Sheen while in a bar.”

“He has small hands.”

“He didn’t shower today so he smells like yesterday.”

“If Dave Weigel spent half the time on his columns as he did on Twitter, he’d have more than a prog rock opus to his name.”

“He’s just trying way too hard to be clever…and falls flat on his, er, face. All that space.”

“Dave’s head looks like a bowling ball sitting atop a matchstick of a neck.”
