A Frikkin Hashtag: #ImaginativeCurse

For this game, we decided to invite you to get creative in coming up with family-friendly and completely original and imaginative curses… and did you just?

[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…]

It feels like Roe [Roe Roe your boat, gently down the stream] has been with us at AFH forever because he has such a gentle and calming presence and also because like me he understands that pineapple is amazing until you put it on pizza and then it is just a smidge below raiSIN. But this was his very first co-hosting game with AFH:

As per usual we sent out some invites:

hashtag game curse

But also we sent out a How To so everyone would know how to play:

hashtag game rules curse

May your perfect pizza arrive with a piece of cooked pineapple carefully hidden under a thick and juicy strip of bacon #ImaginativeCurse

May you inadvertently tell a story about Chewbacca to a group of Trekkies and only realise halfway through that you have the wrong crowd. #ImaginativeCurse

May the flies of 1000 camels hover 3.7 inches above your nose as you try to get to sleep on a humid summer’s night. #ImaginativeCurse

And so on…

Roe, as expected, jumped straight into it and hit the ground running:

Seems like camels were the go to for this game…

And we were amped to have some of our favourite bots play along:

We trended in the States as per usual but also in Puerto Rico which was a first i believe and this was a solid trending game:

But i know that most of you don’t hardly care about any of that, cos there is a F.L.O.P. list to get to and out of all of the thousands of tweets we looked at – and i’m sure we probably missed a bunch so if you didn’t make it tell yourself yours was one of those – these are some of the tweets that jumped out at us to make it on to this week’s TOP TWEETS list which we call:


Also before i begin, can i say i was a little nervous to run a hashtag game with the word curse in it and that being the focus and you guys totally blew me away with creativity over nastiness embracing the whole family vibe that we try run AFH with so THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH – you guys totally came to the party on this one. #WhichShouldBeNoSurpriseCosYouTotallyComeToThePartyEveryWeekYo

Jayme started us off by skating on thin ice in a family-friendly game with this horrific wish:

While the jury is still out on whether this would be a curse or a blessing and for who:

Somehow it seems like John’s already came true, right K Dawg? #SheesaGonnaKillMeForDees

While Brian was just being mean:

As was Lisa, really hurtful and vengeful – WHY, LISA, WHYYYYYYY?

Cattsy’s was creative but quite horrifying:

While i am totally with V on this one – a strong curse indeed:

Dreamweasel’s was more creative but totally on the money: LOL, right?

It seems Craig was one step ahead of me:

Mr Math knows me and knows that I HATE THAT GUY!!!

It felt like Fishy was narrating my life, go figure:

While Zarrar’s felt closely relational:

While Cameron’s was all about Walking United:

Paul was perhaps the harshest of you all:

While Linda’s was just early morning na-sty!

Jae had a weird one for sure:

While i’m still trying to figure out if DM missed a letter:

James’ curse won’t work on me cos mine grow at an underalarming rate:

While Codullus… um, just look at the tweet:

Stem is definitely on to me:

Although it feels like 1Safe knows me even better:

Thamanda is just stating my daily reality here. Does that mean it worked?

Urgh hot soup spoon handle – the worst!!!

Seems i should tell Adrienne a funny story about me drying my hair on a stove plate once:

Urgh Columbus, just Urgh!

Loved this one from Scott and we all know which guy i will be:

This one from Robert is evil in its subtlety:

While THAT Jessica knows how to push our buttons:

Bert is speaking about a very specific type of evil right here:

Nasty Graham, nasty:

While Jack just brings it home with this zinger:

Sho guys, it was SUPER HARD to lift any tweets above any other tweets this week [STOP MAKING YOUR TWEETS SO HEAVY!!!] cos they really were so good and so many of the above tweets could have made it on to the list below – my TOP F.L.O.P. list is not usually quite this long but in among all the really really great tweets with some amazingly imaginative curses, there were a bunch that crawled that last little bit to the top of the pile to announce their presence. These were the best of the best and are this week’s:


[10] This one by Robert to get us started is an instant classic:

[9] In fact we brought Robert back for #9 too as just imagining this actually taking place:

[8] Heather imagined a future that is just too scary to contemplate except that, oh.

[7] Sho, this one by Michael really got us thinking… it could go either way:

[6] While Brian has to go and bring family into it:

[5] This was as much the wording as the words – very well played:

[4] Sho. Again. We had to think really carefully about this one Clauss.

[3] Ah flip, 1000 points to Dave for pretty much analysing my condition. How many times have i said this?

[2] Paul brought some genuine chuckles, magnified if you try and read this out loud with a straight face:

[1] While this week’s winner could go to none other than John… I’ll have whatever John is having cos this… this… just this…

VERY SUPER EXCEPTIONALLY DONE everyone and well done to those of you who made the list – you made it really hard this week and this must be one of our funniest and creepiest lists to date… go out and practice these on your friends and family but don’t tell them i said that.

Huge shout out to Roe who is a legend and we are super happy to UnName Him and to the cast and crew of The UnNamed Ones who work tirelessly on the game so they don’t have to work tirelessly at work [looking at you tweeting under that table, V!]

Have yourselves a good one and as always let’s keep the WIT and not the TWIT in the Twitterer…
love brett fish and No_bob [the world’s most famous stuffed dolphin]

Let’s end off with the opposite of an imaginative curse… have a great week:
