What kind of wise words would the Jungle have for us? We decided to find out by playing 

[The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 12 noon South African time [6am EDT] an inspired and growing number of brilliant, creative and absolutely fun people from all around the world take part in what is called a Hashtag game. @AFrikkinHashtag [say it out loud] is South Africa’s #1 Hashtag game and is always a lot of fun. The F.L.O.P. [or Fish List Of Prizeworthyness] is the collection of some of the best tweets from each week’s game and is what all seriously comedic Hashtaggers aspire to…]

This time it was the brilliant @reesiepieces1 joining The UnNamed Ones as official co-host. Reesie is a really great hashtagger and we have had our eye on her for some time and so we were really stoked when she said she would play with us:


We sent out an invite:

And then waited for everyone to show up.

Starting with a few tweets of our own to, you know, get the ball rolling:

In our world it might be scissors… but in the Jungle it’s lethal fruit we need to be careful of: #WisdomOfTheJungle with @reesiepieces1

Join @BrettFishA and @reesiepieces1 as we try to impart and share some of our discovered #WisdomOfTheJungle on @HashtagRoundup

Playing cards with other animals is okay, but make sure none of them is a cheetah!

Reesie got quickly into the vibe:

And then of course, there were all of you… realising as always that with so many tweets being generated we are always going to miss some good ones, but these are the ones that we did get that make it on to the week’s Top Tweets list or is that F.L.O.P. Tweets list? It is… here is this week’s…

Much thanks everyone – i hope you had as much fun playing the game as we did hosting it… looking forward to seeing you all next Wednesday as we continue with our mission to keep the WIT in the Twitterer… [while avoiding the TWIT as much as possible!]

Keep it real and family and until next time…
