I Made Gilbert Laugh

As I mentioned off-handedly a few days ago, I was listening (as I always do) to Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, and I just about ran off the road when I heard them mention my name.

But they mentioned it on a preview, and yesterday when the full show was released, they spent several minutes talking and laughing about it and declared it the best tweet.
