Thoughts from the Dustbin

… almost the width of Gatting


You might want to be seated for this – it’s huge news. It’s everything you’ve been waiting for. Wait for it …


Twatto is finally on Twitter as @ShaneRWatson33

He joined just three days ago and already has over 6,000 followers. I am not one of them. At the time of writing this post, he had one tweet. I suspect he’s suddenly realised he has to use those pesky things called words to maintain a twitter account. Finger paintings are generally discouraged.

So, I was thinking that he could pay someone to tweet for him. Naturally, this is the perfect place to post ideas of the sort of things one would tweet on his behalf. It would have to be realistic, of course, so I suggest something along the lines of the following:

The rather timely (ok, I didn’t think of changing date and time on those above):

lnyfldimnxxg3bnAnd the far less likely:

vr95vI’m obviously perfect for this job.

P.S. Rest assured, I am all prepared to be disappointed by Shaun Marsh in South Africa. There will be no excitement from me on his behalf. Promise.

    Ha, ha. Nice. What about him regularly tweeting ‘I, me, I, me, me, I, me, me, me, I and, um, me?”

    Now Marsh is flying back to SA cos they need someone who was unfit two minutes ago and can break down at any minute to replace someone who can break down at any minute and just did two minutes ago.

      As far as I know, the Scorchers took quite a gamble on Marsh to last the BBL final because he wasn’t definitely fit. He survived, as we know, but did it not make CA question his inclusion in the SA tour?

    Remember when they took his form and fitness from the BBL and pitchforked him into India test matches? That went well.

    Bloody hell, Marsh now has a ton. Wonders will never…

      I know. I was all prepared for disappointment. I tweeted about it. He clearly lives to mock me.

    Judging by the way he looked warming the bench yesterday, I’m surprised we haven’t had a tweet saying: In my wroom. Alone with my guittar. Playing sadd songs.

      Please, please tell me he doesn’t play guitar, too? God help us.

      I hear he’ll be fit for PE – so do we dump Doolan to bring back Twatto? Of course we do. Because we can.

        Oh, Kirby! Your optimistic innocence is so charmingly endearing!

        But ask yourself: a man like Twatson? Would he not play the guitar? Of course he would! Wearing a beanie and ‘jamming’ with Brett Lee. You know it makes sense.

        He spent time sucking up to Lehmann yesterday so he must be worried about his spot. Sadly, what with Sexy Harris looking like he could hardly run yesterday (and when you can actually see that Sexy Harris is in pain, it is really, really bad pain), the need for an allrounder is, I’d say, urgent: if Twatson can bowl, he will be playing. Not entirely sure it’s Doolan who will get the chop, though; I think Rogers might be the one to go. Yes, I know we’re supposed to believe that he singlehandedly won us the Ashes – at least if you listen to the man himself – but he really looked clueless in both innings, as well – I might add – the training match they played before this Test. So there’s that.

        Love Rogers as I do, and dislike the thought of Twatto opening again, that scenario does make the most sense. Twatto in a beanie – no sense. No sense whatsoever.

        Not saying Twatson will be opening even if Rogers is the one to get dropped: Marshmallow could open with Warner; Doolan stay at #3, with Twatson coming in, as a sort of compromise, at #4.

    Has Twatto actually tweeted anything yet? I feel I should follow him just for mockery purposes. research, you know.

    • betti w. woo (@bettiwettiwoo)

      Twice. That is, at least somebody has sent a whole TWO tweets from Twatson’s account.

      Whether that would actually be Twatson himself tweeting is, of course, another matter entirely. Until I see hard proof to the contrary, I’ll maintain he’s still in the ‘crayon phase’.
