Steve Martin

Here's a little history lesson for you. This quote that legendary actor Steve Martin tweeted is actually, "Able was I ere I saw Elba." It's a palindrome, which means if you were to read the sentence from right to left instead of left to right, it would say the same thing. The palindrome was created as something Napoleon Bonaparte might've said when he was exiled to the Island of Elsa.

So, maybe Martin was exiled to an island off of L.A. called Bubba? Or perhaps it was an auto correct? Those things happen, you know. Your guess is as good as ours.

The rest of today's tweets bring you an array of topics from the stars about parenting, food, and Nickleback. Oh, and if you haven't already heard, it's Friday the 13th. Maybe Martin's Bubba is a ghost that's haunting him? Hey, it's possible. Don't doubt Friday the 13th and learn the hard way about its power like Damon Lindelof did in April 13, 2012's Twitter-Wood. See what we mean after the jump. TGIF!
