What, exactly, is a Humblebrag, you ask? It’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like: A humble brag, or a brag about an accomplishment veiled in false humility. As noted by the Wall Street Journal, it’s also a “particularly Hollywood offense,” which means that humble brags from celebrities are both ridiculous and hilarious. That’s why stand-up comedian and Parks and Recreation writer Harris Wittles has created a Twitter feed devoted to this most bizarre of trends: twitter.com/humblebrag. In it, Wittles collects and retweets every humble brag he finds, and believe you me, the results are amazing. Here, we’ve assembled for your comedy pleasure the best of Wittles’ celebrity humble brags. Get bragging!
