Cue the rimshot; Robert Plant's humor comes across even on Twitter

Delivering an entire joke, including the setup and punch line, in 140 characters or less has become an art form. Relaying comedy on Twitter is possible, and Twitter user @johnrags mastered the craft yesterday, when he shared a story about meeting Robert Plant while out for lunch in Nashville. Succinctly, he writes:
@Jereme_ & I are eating & Robert Plant sits at the table next to us... I say "I love your music." He says "I do too". sweet #onlyinnashville
Rimshot, please!

Plant's been spending time in Nashville in recent months, readying his ninth solo album. Tentatively titled It's Rude to Say No, the disc is produced by Buddy Miller, who played guitar and sang backup while Plant was on the road with Alison Krauss in support of their 2007 release, Raising Sand.

Plant and Miller played together twice in October 2009, and last year also saw the release of Miller's album with wife Julie, featuring a guest vocal from Plant recorded backstage during the Raising Sand tour.
