A Frikkin Hashtag: #AsTheChestCreakedOpen

When i was clearing out the attic and i came across that old dusty chest, i decided to open it and what did i find inside?

[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 just me and The UnNamed ones [which means in the region of 20 plus people from all over the world] and so we sent out an ad inviting people to tell us what they found inside:

i started off with some examples:

#AsTheChestCreakedOpen I realised that Dr Frankenstein should have perhaps used a more durable glue.

#AsTheChestCreakedOpen I realised that googling “Things Found in Chests” was NOT a good idea. #DontDoIt #IDidWarnYou #MakeStuffUpForThisOne

weird chest pic

That is somewhat disturbing… yes, sometimes it is better to make things up than google…

#AsTheChestCreakedOpen I discovered all the life-before-cellphone happiness of my eighties toy collection…

Then we opened the doors and as usual the floodgates opened – no way we could catch them all cos after all this is Hashtagging, not Tweetemon Go, but of the ones we saw that we really liked, here is this week’s
