On September 4, celebrities tweeted.
A celebratory spirit was in the air as Queen Beyoncé turned 32 and the New Year began for our Jewish brothers and sisters who celebrated Rosh Hashanah. The joy was palpable as talk of year 32 of Mrs. Carter’s life and year 5774 officially began. Some spoke of upcoming new episodes to the Star Wars series, while the new friendship of others threatened to inspire the greatest reunion episode of the 1990s most wonderful television show, Full House.
Talk of action in Syria was overshadowed by talk of New York Fashion Week and how to most effectively show affection to property. One of Hollywood’s most treasured and revered actors shared what he was reading and how he would prefer we spell his last name. Puns abounded, or rather, there was one tweet that included two puns that was funny enough to seem like more than one tweet. And sadly, the world was reminded of the tragic end of America’s sweethearts, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston. May their love rest in peace.

9. Evan Rachel Wood began an interesting fanfiction:
Cant we pull a "true blood" and just make Darth Vader come back as a vampire in the new Star Wars?
— Evan Rachel Wood (@evanrachelwood) September 4, 2013
Somebody put her in contact with Disney!
8. Canadian cutie Ellen Page made a sassy reference to possible intervention in Syria:
Maybe if we tell politicians that dealing with hunger in America is like dropping "food bombs" they will come together n work hard at it ??
— Ellen Page (@EllenPage) September 4, 2013
I mean . . . not that she doesn’t have a point.
7. Donald Trump was himself:
“Appreciate your property, and your property will appreciate for you.” – Think Like a Billionaire
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2013
I’ll get right on thinkin’ like a billionaire, Donald, right after I actually acquire some “property.”
6. Joan Rivers reminded us how fulfilling jokes about infidelity can be:
NY Fashion Week tip: If you want Angelina Jolie to wear your dress, send it to Jennifer Aniston. Angie will steal it from her.

5. The Office ’s B.J. Novak (hah hah . . . B.J.) gave us food for thought:
How is it that Vietnamese places can make elaborate puns on "Pho" but Chinese restaurants don't realize how much "Hunan" looks like "Human"
— B.J. Novak (@bjnovak) September 4, 2013
Advertisers can’t think of everything, B.J.! They're only hunan!
4. Tom Hanks revealed his porn name:
I'm late to this book, but it's a massively important read. Hanx http://t.co/FDrn3U5Yo0
— Tom Hanks (@tomhanks) September 4, 2013
I really only included this because of the “Hanx.” Also, I bet his XXX performance would be Oscar-worthy.
3. Stephen Collins (a.k.a. Reverend Eric Camden of 7th Heaven) schooled us on our grammar:
By the way, "anyway" is always...singular (so to speak). "Anyways" is not a word. Saves a character on Twitter, too! #grammarpatrol
— Stephen Collins (@StephenCollins) September 4, 2013
Great. Now the 7th Heaven theme song is stuck in my head.
2. Ellen DeGeneres celebrated Beyoncé’s birthday:
Happy birthday, @Beyonce! I really hope this is the year things start going your way.
— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) September 4, 2013
I, for one, am excited to see how Beyoncé develops into a “Grown Woman.”
1. And Rainn Wilson may be spending too much time on WebMD:
Is it Tourettes where I have to blurt out "ginger" whenever I pass a red head?
— RainnWilson (@rainnwilson) September 4, 2013
By that logic, should I be concerned about blurting out, “That’s what she said?”
