Open Post: Hosted By Author Susan Orlean’s Drunken Tweets

July 19, 2020 / Posted by:

Susan Orlean is a longtime New Yorker writer who is probably best known for writing the novel, “The Orchid Thief”, which was loosely adapted for the screen and inspired the movie “Adaptation.”, where she was portrayed by Meryl Streep in one of Meryl’s 78 Oscar-nominated performances. However, it was Susan who was giving the performance of a lifetime on Friday after a bunch of her Pinot Grigio-covered drunken tweets went viral. Relate: We all can!

According to Entertainment Weekly, Susan kicked off her weekend innocently enough by posting a solemn and SOBER note about Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who recently revealed that her cancer had returned. However, four hours later, she tweeted the word “Drunk” and then followed it up by explaining that she had visited her neighbors to see their newborn colt and that “we had some wine.” Yes, I too just pictured Susan and that newborn colt getting wasted on wine. Where’s that newborn colt’s drunken tweets? 

What followed over the next few hours was an iconic drunken tweet spree where drunk Susan got a craving for candy and ended up with fennel seed candy. Here’s some of Susan’s gradual descent into the drunken literary canon:

I don’t know if this is Susan’s attempt at a performance art Twitter piece, or if she is just another example of how famous people really are just like us, but either way, I am HERE for it.

And when the drunks wore off and Susan woke up in the morning, she realized that she started a feud with fennel seeds.

Fennel seed candy has yet to respond, so who knows if it will accept Susan’s semi-sort-of-apology or tell her to keep its name out of her mouth, which shouldn’t be hard since Susan Orlean hates fennel seed candy.
