Default @midnight's Hashtag Wars

I watch @midnight, an improv comedy "game show" in the vein of Who's Line is it Anyway. Hosted by Christ Hardwick, a trio of comedians improv answers to questions culled from social media and other online sources.

One of the games they do is called Hashtag Wars, where they come up with puntastic answers in the form of a Twitter hashtag. Some of the topics for this week, for example, are "One letter off TV shows" or "Horny Authors."

The viewing audience can play along by Tweeting their answer to @midnight with the hashtag #HastagWars.

I don't have Twitter, and don't care to sign up, but that doesn't mean we can't play along here for ourselves!

Anyone want to join the fun on the snopes board?

Last night's #HastagWars topic was Football Movies. Take the title of an existing movie, and make it about football.

Here's some of mine...
