We have already established that I love Shaq, and I obviously love Scrabble, so it’s no wonder that I love this video.

In case you missed it, and because I haven’t mentioned it in my previous Shaq posts (and it really does deserve its very own post), Shaq’s Twitter bio is:

I wrote the other day about my appreciation of Shaquille O’Neal and his Twitter activity. Then Chris told me that when Shaq can’t sleep, he goes to Wal-Mart, and when he checks out, he pays for the next 20 people behind him in line or something crazy-generous like that. Then I read this, and any doubts I had about THE_REAL_SHAQ actually being the real Shaq vanished!

It’s really him!

And he tips really well.  Apparently, the man’s got a heart of gold, officially making him my newest favorite celebrity.

I don’t care what my dad says about his spelling. The man’s enormous and typing his tweets on a tiny little cell phone, so let’s cut him some slack. And the whole point of my liking him on Twitter is that he’s funny, not that he’s insightful or literary.  And his tweets are funny mostly because they’re written by a very large, very rich, very famous person.

If you’re not convinced, here are his last two:

All a-twitter.

If you aren’t on Twitter, or, like me, if you rarely log in or post any udpates, consider this a favor: You have to follow Shaq. Yes, Shaquille O’Neal is actually on Twitter, and he updates frequently.

Some recent gems:

The man is priceless. First, he uses “LOL,” which I usually find annoying if not used ironically, but in this case, it just cracks me up every time. In fact, it makes me LOL. Second, in his traffic court (or, I should say, “twaffic court”) tweets, he twitterizes the words “speeding” and “people” by starting them with “tw.” Brilliant and hilarious!

Best of all, he loves Twitter. He apparently feels a real sense of community with other Twitter users. It’s refreshingly humble for someone who currently has more than 137,000 people following his tweets.

His username is The_Real_Shaq. It really is him.
