DadBoner Identity Revealed! Meet The Creator Of That Epic Guy Fieri/Road House Sequel

All the carnal babes at the office simultaneously shrieked when VICE.com released this video in which it definitively proved the identity of the mysterious, middle-aged deadbeat Karl Welzein, a.k.a. “@DadBoner,” a.k.a. Guy Fieri’s imaginary best friend, a.k.a. the god of Anthony Bourdain.

Meet Mike Burns, a writer/comedian who happens to be behind one of the most popular fictional characters on Twitter (with 130,000 followers and counting.) “I’m not a big fan of jokes, per se,” he admits. “[But] most of my material is longer storytelling, and I wanted to use Twitter in a way that was conducive to me, which was to write a long story.”

Hence: screenplays on Craigslist and tweets about imaginary Guy Fieri menus.
