Bill Maher, Can We Be #34?

bill-maherI didn’t think I would ever write another blog about twitter but something happened this morning. You know that Barrechat girls do not follow endless fitness and health gurus. For obvious reasons. Read our description.

You know that we like to laugh.  So this morning I started following Bill Maher. I was hopelessly in love with Bill Maher until I saw the tweet from Donald Trump @ realdonaldtrump:  everyone should cancel HBO until they fire low life dummy Bill Maher. Forget love; I adore Bill Maher. I hate Bill Maher haters.

Could not help but notice that two million people follow Bill Maher and he only follows 33. He is incredibly selective and super critical about who he follows. Would he ever follow barrechat? For reasons other than my unrequited adoration? With only 33 people to analyze can I find an algorithm to his picks?

90% are comediennes. He doesn’t just follow any comediennes. He follows Eddie Lizard, fellow atheist, comedienne who in 2009, with only 5 weeks’ training and no significant prior history of running, began seven weeks of back-to-back marathon runs (with Sundays off) in which he ran 43 marathons in 51 days.
I’m not a comedienne, super marathon runner nor a transvestite.
He follows lawyer Harvey Levin. I’m a lawyer. That won’t be enough. Harvey Robert Levin is an American television producer, lawyer, legal analyst and a celebrity reporter. He is the founder of celebrity gossip website

He clearly has an affinity for atheists. But not just your white bread variety. He follows Richard Dawkins, an English ethnologist, evolutionary biologist and best selling author.University of Oxford Professor. Creator of a foundation whose mission is “to overcome religious fundamentalism, superstition, intolerance and suffering.”

Don’t see how barrechat can compete with Richard Dawkins. Or for that matter, Cornel West, Salmon Rushdie or Arianna Huffington who round out the select list of “not- comediennes”

There are two red herrings on his list of 33.  Jane Fonda and Demi Moore.  I’m speechless.  Jane and Demi are famous and talented but they are not comediennes.

The algorithm is simple; it helps to be brilliant, atheist, accomplished, famous, published, and funny unless you are Jane Fonda or Demi Moore.

Bill, wherever you are.  Take the leap.  According to Eleonor Roosevelt and the Lululemon Manifesto, “Do one thing a day that scare’s you.” SORRY. Forget that.  Our manifesto says no lifestyle or inspirational quotes allowed!

Please follow Barrechat. Just do it!
