My Picks for Top Tweets: 10 September 2017

In New Zealand it’s tweets about a certain rugby game that are trending on Twitter at the moment, and if you’re a rugby fan, things are looking pretty good right now. The All Blacks met the Pumas (Argentina) last night and after a hard fought match, we won 39-22. Los Pumas fought hard and played well, and at half-time they were deservedly ahead 16-15. Shortly after half-time they’d increased their lead to 22-15.

The All Blacks try below, ten minutes into the second half, marks a turn around. The All Blacks began to play much better after that and came away with a good win in the end. There are quite a few nasty tweets from Australians about the Pumas giving us a fright. I guess they still haven’t got over us beating them twice in a row.

Last night’s game was part of a four-way championship involving Argentina, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. Australia and South Africa played last night too; the result was a 23-all draw. That means Australia has yet to win a game in the tournament, which explains a lot of the sour grapes. Like there often is with neighbouring countries, there’s a bit of a love-hate relationship between us.

 

 

For Interest’s Sake

I don’t have a section for this tweet, so I’ll put it up top. I did the test and got Iceland. For some reason it got the impression I like cold places! It’s the cold that would put me off that country, as well as that fish delicacy thing (the name of which escapes me at the moment). I want to live right by the beach somewhere where there’s plenty of sunshine! I’d love to visit Iceland though.

Cat Tweets

You may have seen this very cool tweet that’s been doing the rounds over the last few months.

 

Well, this cat can do a high-five and a high-ten!

Wow! Isn’t it beautiful!

 

There’s something about a sleeping cat.

Dog Tweets

Super-size floor polisher!

 

Awww …

Other Animals Tweets

How lucky is the person who saw this live and got to film it? Seeing this sort of thing must be the thrill of a lifetime.

 

These foxes clearly have no trouble finding food. I suspect human intervention!

 

I didn’t know this lovely species of fox existed before. Yay for Twitter!

 

I always knew there was a bunny conspiracy! Here’s the proof!

 

Okay, this is not normal!

 

I’ve done this to a piglet too – they seem to love having a good ole belly rub!

Bird Tweets

This could also go in the Weather Tweets section.

Mollusc Tweets

These photos of snails are absolutely gorgeous!!!

Flora Tweets

Fascinating stuff.

 

Now here’s a life well lead.

 

This would be pretty freaky if you didn’t know what was going on. If I saw it in New Zealand, I’d suspect imminent volcanic activity.

Political Tweets

This is both genius and absolutely hilarious!

 

Religion Tweets

I love this photo! It would be a good one to use for a caption competition too!


 

History Tweets

Here’s one for parents. Don’t worry. As long as you taught them good values, they’ll turn out okay. They grow out of the weird stuff.

Scenic Tweets

Another lovely pic of Italy – they just keep on coming!

Weather Tweets

He’s lucky the consequences weren’t much worse! People like this take resources away from helping others.

Strictly, this is a Climate Change Tweet, but it fits in here too.

 

The Bard has words for the occasion …

    Nice collection today. I’ll vote for “fox family will melt your heart”.

  2. nicky says:

    I did that test and you never guess!! New Zealand! Honestly, I kid you not! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. ratabago says:

    Well, I did the test. For 8 out of the 9 questions I wanted to choose the nonexistent “None of the Above”. Still, I got France, which might just be tolerable.

    Following after nicky I tried the mental age quiz, and got 34. Seems my spirit flower is the orchid, which would have been near enough if they had chosen an Australian terrestrial orchid. Seems my soul is mysterious and mystifying, and I have extra-sensory insight.

    This is really starting to damage my faith in on-line quizzes. I haz a sad:(.

    • I’ve done a few of these on-line quizzes – apparently my Spanish is fluent (I guessed all my answers from high school French), I’m a good Christian, and my manners are Japanese. Generally, either I don’t know myself very well at all, or they’re very wrong!

    That Vincent Fox dude had me rolling. “I am not president and I live in another country and I’ve passed as much legislation as you-zero” LOL!

    The Bard quote must be the voice of Prospero.

    • Yeah, I spent a lot of time laughing out loud too. The media get a lot if good quotes from him re Mexico including, “We’re not paying for that fuโ‚ฌking wall,” which, considering he’s the former president of Mexico is gold.

    • nicky says:

      In fact Vicente Fox was president of Mexico, the first opposition president in living memory. I’m not 100% sure, but I think he passed quite a bit of legislation. He must have referred to the present, Trump’s regime.
      Brilliant indeed!
