This morning I was reading along and saw boobeinglate as a hashtag.
To be perfectly honest, the first thing my whacked out brain did was transpose the i and the e, making it look like boobie nglate - whatever the hell that means.
Once I put the letters back in their correct order, I couldn't figure out why someone would say 'boob ein glate'. Is it German? Is it dirty? WTF? Toss that option.
Then I went to boobe in glate. Still a major WTF moment.
Sure Twitter makes the world smush everything together and not speak in full sentences, but let's all take a moment to make sure we're not creating more confusion... like the world needs that.

Will. Not. Succumb. To. Twitter.ReplyDelete
Even with the prospect of word games ;)
I enjoy twitter but in many ways it is throw away writing and I don;t think anyone puts much thought behind what they write.ReplyDelete
I actually put an extra "b" in there when I read it, so I thought it was boob being late. And then I thought it must have something to do with mammograms. So maybe it was a public service announcement.ReplyDelete
Not sure I would have persisted with figuring it out!ReplyDelete
Ha, LOL!! I actually thought it said boobie, too :) You are not alone!ReplyDelete
LMAO! I actually couldnt figure it out either until you told me. But I agree, some hashtags are so dumb. I tend to use the writing ones, but thats about it =)ReplyDelete
