He probably doesn't regret leaving comedy now

After much anticipation, Twitter finally had its IPO on Thursday and it sure did not disappoint, closing the first day of trading at almost $45 per share, well above the initial IPO price of $26/share. Many of Twitter’s founders and executives, like CEO Dick Costolo, are now worth, on paper at least, a whole lot of money. Matter of fact, the IPO went so well that even the Fail Whale has decided to splurge on lap-band surgery.

If you were one of the lucky people who are now a whole lot richer thanks to the Twitter IPO - congrats! For the rest of you losers (which includes myself), enjoy the Veterans Day weekend!
