A Frikkin Hashtag: #AnimalExcuses

We know that people love to make excuses for everything. But what if we were able to tune into the excuses that animals might make? How PUNderful would they be? Turns out very. Very PUNderful indeed. The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 12 noon South African time [6 am 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 [...]

A Frikkin Hashtag: #LetMeImproveYourDayBy

Another Wednesday, another Hashtag game... well hopefully not just another hashtag game - we continue to do everything we can to make @AFrikkinHashtag stand out as a game that has that little bit of its own flavour and it's all of you that make that possible. This week my co-host, the incredible Kathleen Adams aka @KattFunny [and i'm not just saying that - take five minutes and go and read her incredible story of recovery [...]

A Frikkin Hashtag: #RhymeImproveAMovie

Last week my internets was waging war on me and so i was unable to publish the F.L.O.P. list and so apologies for all of you whose brief but significant moment of Twitterdom fame was snuffed out. Today's game has a whole legendary crew of secret unofficial co-hosts helping me and so it should be a particularly fun and groan-worthy [on porpoise] one. But last week's game results are in and once again you brought [...]

A Frikkin Hashtag round 2: And Then The World Ended

Last week was the second official week of the South African presence on the International Trending Hashtagging game app under the hashtag @AFrikkinHashtag [Say it out loud]. Despite it happening right in the middle of all the #FeesMustFall action, we still somehow managed to briefly trend in South Africa for the first time while also trending solidly at number 4 in the States.

Chasing LOL – part III

Oh sure, you type LOL, but not while you are ever actually laughing out loud - you wouldn't have the stability... But in the meantime let's take some time out to appreciate five more quotes from my favourite actual LOL guy, Jack Handey: 'Don't ever get your speedometer confused with your clock, like I did once, because the faster you go the later you think you are.' [Jack Handey] 'One thing that a computer can [...]

Chasing LOL – part II

You know how this works. We write LOL, but we barely ever really mean it... but Jack Handey is one of the guys who i know have made people LOL best and for real... so take a look at these offerings and see if any of them do it for you: 'It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.' [Jack Handey] 'I guess of all [...]

You can be anything you want to be

i posted this a few years ago when i had a Weekly Mash blog going on, but thought it was worthy of a place on Irresistibly Fish as it is one picture that never fails to make me smile a lot and usually laugh out loud [which is unusual for me - normally an inside laugher] i hope it might have that effect on some of you. you know as a child, many well-meaning adults [...]

Whenever you are holding on too tightly, Lego.

If i were to ask you what the best job in the whole world was, i doubt if anyone would respond, "Working with Lego" simply because, how is that a job? But if i were to tell you that for the last two months i have lived with someone whose job is working with Lego, your response is very much likely to be, 'Wow, that's the best job in the world!' So Aaron and Sarah [...]

Pearls before Glass

you probably have to be a regular reader of Pearls [before Swine] and an appreciator of the croc and 'Zeeba' dynamic to appreciate this one... but if you are then you will dig it - snuck into my inbox while i was in South Africa...
