Straight and Farrow
Ronan Farrow throws some Father’s Day chin music
Last we caught up with Ronan Farrow—son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow—he was busy becoming the subject of arguably the greatest Scroll post of all-time. Okay, he was also being awarded a Rhodes Scholarship after having graduated college at 15, Yale Law School at 21, and having done some seriously impressive humanitarian work in between writing and working for the State Department.
But the world fell in love with Ronan all over again following a tweet he sent out this weekend:
“Happy father’s day— or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law’s day,” Ronan tweeted Sunday.
This, of course, was a reference to his father’s infamous dalliance with Soon-Yi Previn, Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter. Mia Farrow retweeted her son’s words out into the ether, adding the comment “Boom.”
I leave to you anonymous creepers in the commentariat to give the best Woody Allen-esque reply. 140 characters or less. Winner gets a Nextbook prize.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
