Follow Friday – You Don’t Have To Put Out A Red Light

10 Dec

Choosing Tweet of the Week this time was rough. It’s been a particularly awesome week for Twitter.

One of my favorite things from this past week was a video that oodja tweeted: a mashup between the old school Rudolph movie and the song “Roxanne.” My fondest memory of that song was when some friends and I went to a karaoke bar to celebrate my friend Greg’s birthday. When we got there two really, really drunk guys were singing “Ebony and Ivory.” We were quickly seated in a table way in the back of the restauarnt, far away from the bar. The next guy on stage was even drunker and he sang, “Roxanne” so loudly and so terribly we laughed the entire time. I still remember him singing, “YOOOOOOOOOOU DOOOOOOOON’T HAFTA PUTA REEEEEED LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT.”

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.
