With Elon Musk shooting cars into space, we know that the time for living in space can’t be too far off. So we decided to get ahead of the pack with this game…

[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…]

As per usual we sent out an invite and threw out a couple of our own ideas just to get the [space] balls rolling:

We did a little bit of the trending and a couple of our favourite bots dropped in to play:


And we even cracked a Katy Perry song, so you know that’s legit:

But, of course, as always, you didn’t come here to read about that stuff – you came to see if you made it on the most enviable of envy lists that the Hashtag Galaxy knows… that’s right, it’s time for this week’s F.L.O.P. or as we like to call it:


Erin got us going with this true [on so many levels] tweet:

K Dawg popped in to ruin the ambience by suggesting pumpkin-flavoured drinks – WHAT???

Jim was feeling sporty:

While Roe was thinking of his fellow man:

Mikeala was feeling a little overwhelmed by the scope of the challenge:

While Daniel was thinking of the children:

Paul was all about making space for something in space:

While Tali was in party mode:

Patch was on board with the inevitable:

While Craig was thinking ahead [of ways to get hold of all of your space bucks no doubt]:

While Megan was i-see-what-you-did-there’ing for some Massive Misdirection points:

Jaime was experimenting with a fifth element:

While Rowan was Hitchhikering his ideas in:

While Arren was offering himself for the job:

While Zac was trying to downscale, while inscaling:

John Lane bounced in to pun-ish us with this one:

While Philip was feeling more practical with the general public in mind:

Patch was back with a recipe:

Bree was also punning way above her class:

Zeeppo was forever being the clown…. supplier:

While Nope really seemed to have her suggestions in the bag:

Jaime was really milking this suggestion:

While double Ry brought the next level pun to the party:

Selina was thinking of the ladies [and the perfume-appreciating men!]

Brian was seeking an end to Wars:

Gal was simply horsing around:

While Katherine was making sure we were all had enough Lemonade:

Huskie was not feeling too confident about longevity:

Jason was all about the irony:

Eillie gets a bazillion Looney Tunes points for referencing my favourite green martian cartoon character:

While Daryl got a little existential on us:

So many great tweets and yet we even had some which F.L.O.P.ped a little topper than those, so let’s hear it for this week’s Top of the Top which we call:


[7] Rob was up first with a very necessary and pain-reducing offer:

[6] Gal made her way onto this list with a fine little p.s. pun:

[5] James’ idea seems completely original and unlikely to have four sequels and maybe even a fifth:

[4] Richard was also smoothly dropping some quality punnage:

[3] Jeremy’s idea was a cycle, of sorts:

[2] John was calling on his upper-class historical root lineage:

[1] While in first space, um place, was Ry Ry for the winning pun in a galaxy of puns with this classy:

Amazing stuff yet again, some might say “out of this world” [particularly Erin, i think it was] but well done to all of you and look forward to seeing what you have for us at our next game, which as you know is Wednesday noon time for South Africans and 6am EDT for those of you who prefer your time like that.

As always, keep the WIT in the TWITTERER and let’s keep AFH the number one African Family game that we know and love.

Yours hostily,
Brett Fish and an ever present UnNamed Ones crew of legendaries…
