But in keeping with the spirit of something a little jollier I'd like to introduce you today to some of the people I follow on Twitter. Yes hidden among my fellow witches lurk some real characters and some of them really, really make me laugh. So here are a few of my favourite funny tweeters...
Roger the Degu
Roger is a poop throwing, reality tv hating degu who is determined to start the degu revolution. He says “yus” a lot. When not being tickled under the chin with a red hb pencil, Roger likes to make poop stashes in his cage and complain vociferously about the many perfumed bubble baths taken by his long suffering owner.
That Fucking Cat
Resents his owners, life and pretty much the world in general. Adopts a slightly belligerent attitude to all those who cross his path and uses some very naughty words!
Believes in the philosophy that if your cat bites you, you need to ask yourself why you are such an idiot and what you have done to deserve it!
Gin O Clock
Whoever would have guessed her Majesty's mobile would ping so constantly with questions from Nick Clegg, David Cameron and all the members of the Queen's own family. Is it any wonder that she values the time she spends with the gin bottle so much?
PigeonJon likes to express himself by plopping on celebrities. He enjoys finding portions of what he refers to as “pavement soup” and offers regular excellent, if slightly obvious, advice on the lines of: “If you do not want to be shopping on Christmas Eve, do not leave your shopping until Christmas Eve.” Can't fault his logic!
He also “does the face” but nobody has ever been able to work out what that actually means....
The ghost lives with a family and likes to float things around to annoy them. He has a “gang” comprised of himself, the cat, the fish and the dog (he hates the dog). The ghost also has a bit of a breast fixation and spends a lot of time watching the woman in the shower....
Unfortunately he isn't as scary as he would like to be and he isn't too bright either, managing to mistake a pizza with a slice missing for pac man....
In his own words ......“I like sausages. And every night I get drunk. Then I kick my neighbour's bin over. Naked. Any questions?”
A somewhat aggressive rodent with a penchant for alcohol and disorderly conduct. One rather hopes the oft referred to Future Mrs Furious will keep him in line. His recent answer to an advent calendar was kicking down his next door
Neighbour's door to look at his Christmas tree.
The beast is obsessed with the acquisition of cake and frequently finds itself up against the law for harassing local bakeries. Beast thinks its a bit of an intellectual whizz but everybody else thinks its a bit of a berk! The beast is a bristly, stout and rather unappealling creature who wants to be like the ladies in Dallas and spends a lot of time wearing silky nighties and polishing its trotters. Beast always refers to itself in the third person and is kind of gender neutral albeit with a desire to be an ultra feminine pink clad lady beast.
