In my humor book Nonsense for Nothing (which remains free on iTunes), I included a collection of random thoughts that I titled "Tiny Bits of Nonsense." It was drawn from my Twitter feed, which I consider to be a 140-character version of this blog: a lot of pop culture references, with the occasional inane observation tossed in for good measure.
Two and a half years after publishing Nonsense for Nothing, I've decided to resurrect "Tiny Bits of Nonsense" on this blog as a recurring series. At the end of each month, I will highlight 10 tweets from my feed that I hope will make you smile.
Below, you'll find select tweets that I posted in March. If you like what you read, feel free to follow me on Twitter at @myemptythoughts.
