Rashida Jones ponders prunes, forms hypothetical band with Aziz Ansari


Show of hands: how many of you have ever tweeted about prunes? Doesn’t seem to be terribly popular subject. Well, prunes got a lot more relevant this morning when Rashida Jones adopted the topic for her Twitter feed this morning.

I haven't seen prunes in a while. Did they re-brand themselves as "dried plums" to create distance from the whole pooping thing? FRIDAYYYY!

The mystery was solved quickly for the “Parks and Recreation” actress.

@CaDriedPlumBrd Thank you! Prune lovers will be thrilled to know that the only thing that's changed is the name! #DriedPlumsStillMakeYouPoop

— Rashida Jones (@iamrashidajones) July 6, 2012

The conversation wasn’t over for Jones, who looked for a special someone to share her thoughts with.

@azizansari Two questions, Zeezers. Do you like dried plums? Also, what's your favorite song right now?

— Rashida Jones (@iamrashidajones) July 6, 2012

Aziz Ansari did say he was bored. And what’s a better boredom-fixer than dried plums?

Never had em! Dryin Plumz by 2Chainz “@iamrashidajones: 2 questions, Zeezers. U like dried plums? Also, what's ur favorite song right now?”

— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) July 6, 2012

@azizansari If we can get 2Chainz to record "Dryin Plumz" @CaDriedPlumBrd would be VERY happy.

Isn’t that swell? A simple discussion about dried plums has turned into fresh thinking and marketing ideas. Is “Dryin Plumz” the next hit single from 2 Chainz?

Hey @iamrashidajones is it true we are starting an R and B group called Chicken 'n Dumplings?

— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) July 6, 2012

@azizansari I think we should just make it true #IWantToBeDumplings. Safe travels!

— Rashida Jones (@iamrashidajones) July 6, 2012

You heard it here first. Remember this day: when Aziz and Rashida become the biggest thing the music world has ever seen.

Thanks to Twitter, I know that Rashida Jones calls Aziz Ansari "zeezers" and this melts my heart. Thanks Twitter.

@azizansari are you meta-showcasing your awkward flirting skills with these Rashida Jones tweets?
