Sometimes the weird and occasionally wonderful world of social media provides an unexpected smile. Yesterday was one such moment, as
#ThingsILearnedFromTheMightyBoosh achieved world trend status on twitter.
Boosh folk and fans alike seized on the hashtag, using it as an opportunity to share their happiest memories of The Mighty Boosh. There was everything from “To succeed in life, I need a door in my hair!” (Mike Frankish) and “Never let a crack fox near your medicine cabinet” (Ellie Shaw), to “Roger Daltrey hoovers for nobody” (Shane) – and everything in between, including lots of mentions of ponchos, Baileys and cheese/meat.
Those involved in the series added this to the hashtag conversation:
“Far too much to tweet” and “Mike can’t eat chocolate cheesecake” (Dave Brown)
“I learnt that the Boosh fans are the best fans in the world x x x love you freaks” and “Tony Harrison learnt that its best to buy poppers in bulk” (Noel Fielding)
“The Boosh boys don’t like learning their lines” and “Spiders have eight pensises” (Spencer Millman)
“What goes on tour stays on tour” (Peter Kyriacou)
“Never try to get on a bouncy castle in crutches!” (Lliana Bird)
