Seth Rogen’s Mom’s Twitter Is The Best Thing You’ll Read This Week
Like all mothers, we need Sandy Rogen, but we don’t deserve her and we certainly don’t do enough to thank her for what she does for us.
The Vancouver-based retired social worker is a mother of two who has been described by her son as a “radical Jewish socialist”.
She is also a phenomenal tweeter.
