In a Twitter-to-TV deal that we hope fares better than $h*! My Dad Says, Comedy Central has ordered an animated pilot of @DadBoner, based on the irreverent feed of the same name.

Deadline reports that comedian Mike Burns, who posts from the @DadBoner account and published a book titled Power Moves: Livin’ the American Dream, USA Style as Karl Welzein—a beer-swilling, weekend warrior alter ego—will write the project with Tim Long, a Late Show With David Letterman vet who is currently a consulting producer on The Simpsons:

On the show, Karl Welzein has developed his own philosophy of life, indulging in dangerously generous helpings of booze, fast food, and American pride. Since his wife kicked him out of the house, Karl has been crashing at his buddy Dave’s and living like a “true bad boy” with “plenty of babes”—in his own mind.

What can we expect from this potential series? Well, now seems as good a time as any to revisit some of @DadBoner’s defining tweets—and imagine them spoken aloud by a cartoon character:

You know what? I think basic cable is going to be just fine.
