(For the 12 days leading up to Christmas, Stunt Granny will relive with you the 12 most head-slapping, dipshitty stories of 2011, the things that made us wonder why we still watch professional wrestling and support some of these dingbats. Let’s continue with one of the more delusional wrestlers out there, Bret Sergeant Hart. The Hitman blessed us this year with his presence on Twitter, but with one’s head up one’s own ass the majority of the time, it may be hard to pick the most appropriate Twitter handle. He’s since changed it to the simpler “@BretHart,” but that didn’t make this faux pas disappear.)
(Originally posted February 28, 2011) And while I’m posting about Canadian pro wrestlers, according to Prowrestling.net, Bret “Hitman” Hart has launched a Twitter page, http://twitter.com/HitmanBretSHart#. It already has 6,40o followers, and it’s only been up for about three hours. That says to me that there are 6,400 people out there who need daytime jobs and could probably stand to retire their Hitman T-shirt from 1994 before the whited-out pit stains become so hard they can’t even move. Oh wait, I think the white comes from deodorant, never mind.
And, OK, I know the mind reads what it wants to, and I know Bret’s middle name is Sergeant (that Stu was a weird bastard), but does he even realize that his Twitter handle is Hitman Bret Shart? I mean… Shart. Again, back to those 6,400 unwashed losers, I’m sure someone in that group has already planted a flag at “HitmanBretHart,” “BretHitmanHart” and “14thOf13Children,” thinking they’re paying some sort of homage. But Shart? Was “BretHitmanClark” taken? What about “TheBretHart” with an underscore after it? Something, geez. -Eric
