There’s a strange noise coming from under my bed and i can’t believe it’s a monster so it must be…

[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 week it was the turn of the magnificent Deb aka @BadMommy4U to co-host with us…

@BadMommy4U

We started by sending out an invitation:

Then a few examples, to, you know, get the ball rolling:

#ThatNoiseUnderMyBedIs the sound of fear in the monsters as they witness my moment of realisation and their power over me fades away…

#ThatNoiseUnderMyBedIs the sound of the monster being formed from 1000 unwanted pieces of cooked pineapple hastily discarded from pizzas.

And since this game happened just after that Oscar awards moment i couldn’t resist:

#ThatNoiseUnderMyBedIs coming from a couple of Witness Protection Academy Award presenters. Shhhhh!

People got really creative about just what those sounds might be and so we trendalised quite quickly:

And were pleased to have a good assortment of our favourite bots playing the game:

But we know that you only popped in here to see if you made the list and so let’s take a look at some of the Top Tweets that we encountered as we played #ThatNoiseUnderMyBedIs. That’s right, i’m talking about:

Someone get that man a Bells… or maybe a bed would be a better start…

But thanks everyone for playing and once again making AFH a whole lot of fun. Great stuff Deb for superb co-hostage and as always the growing family that is The UnNamed Ones who lurk quietly in the background [except Rob who tends to be a much louder lurker] and get the job done so well and with so much cheerful banter on the way… if you enjoy playing the game and would like to try out co-hosting, drop me a massage… um message…

Til next time, let’s keep the WIT in the Twitterer and let’s keep hitting FUN and CLEVER and MISDIRECTIONAL and RANDOM [but related] and PUNNY and keep AFH the #1 Family game on the web.

love brett fish and No_bob the stuffed dolphin.
