Today(ish) in Twitter is a regular column wherein our staff troll through the best of the 140 letter updates of the comic book world. ComicBookDaily is not responsible for the content of these tweets, but we will admit to laughing our collective bums off at some of them.
We’d also like to wish a very Happy Birthday to my favourite ‘humorist’ Chip Zdarsky.. the funniest Man in Comic books.
Chris Butcher Happy Birthday to Chip Zdarsky, also known as @zdarsky, the hardest working man in show business.
Matt Fraction happy birthday @zdarsky i just pulled a piece of that splinter from a couple months ago out from under my nail for you.
Chip Zdarsky @mattfraction now put it in an envelope and mail it to me or something bad will happen (zdarsky’s curse)

Cameron Stewart Mildly unsettled by the number of people assuring me that the blue CGI catgirl alien is indeed desirable. If I *am* attracted to her, it’s gonna be tough convincing my future partners to hold their breath for that long
Neil Gaiman Was just sent this “Nicholas Was…” YouTube video. Nicely done and, y’know, seasonal. http://bit.ly/6wVF0e Ho. Ho. Ho.

Rafael Grampa @mattfraction Totally! Avatar is a free adaptation of “Dance with Wolves” by Jack Kirby.
Michael Cho Now I’m going to go christmas shopping while feeling slightly hungover. What a mix.
Ramon Perez i case you missed it, Reggie’s fighting an army of mantas in two new #kukuburi pages that went up prior to the weekend. http://su.pr/254nUD
Tim Seeley A pretty entertaining look at the aughts’ “not-so-good comics:” http://www.comicsalliance.com/2009/12/17/the-15-worst-comics-of-the-decade/
Fred Van Lente The future of INCREDIBLE HERCULES begins here, folks: http://tinyurl.com/ybz2gzg
Gerry Conway So, I’ve seen Avatar twice. And liked it even more the second time. First impressions say: pretty but dumb. Second: deeper than you think. Yes, it’s “Dances with Wolves” on another planet. As my wife said, so what? As the movie says, see with new eyes.
Matt Sturges “Taylor Lautner Goes Shirtless in Cancun” is an actual headline. World ends at eleven.
Rob Liefeld Steven Lang’s performance as Quaritch in Avatar was brilliant. Just attach a cyborg arm to him and presto! he’s Cable. Perfect age too. While I’m at it, Dear Brett Ratner, please cast Ashlee Greene as Vogue or better yet, as Twilight in the Youngblood film!
Jeff Lemire Reading Richard Price’s LUSH LIFE right now. Really great so far, recommended to any fans of THE WIRE.
Hope Larson The horse in our front yard is chowing down on our willow tree. Midge is in love with the horse from afar.

Ryan Kelly Drawing The New York Four. *Spoiler*: The characters will most often be wearing skinny jeans.
Paul Tobin Plotting comics today. Need to work way ahead due to artist’s schedule. Always makes things interesting.
Brian Wood In a Very Special Northlanders (23) this week, a goat dies.
B Clay Moore The mid-90s were better for comics than I remember.
James Robinson Super Glue fixed by ear-piece. I love super glue. Except that one time I fell asleep drunk in an alley and someone decided it’d be funny to super glue my penis to a sleeping hobo’s belly. I hated super glue on that day.
Skottie Young today I work, tonight I watch dvr’d Intervention marathon. Tonight will be awesome and depressing.
