#middleclassfootballchants: A top 20 for Bank Holiday Monday

I tend not to get involved in Twitter hashtag games – largely because I can’t normally come up with anything witty to add. Remember #itsallnicksfault when Nick Clegg was being blamed for virtually everything prior to the election, or #lesserbooks – the trending topic which made books a little less grand than they otherwise would have been.

Great fun to watch, but they often just disappear into thin air as the trending topics move on to something else. So, just for a bit of Bank Holiday fun, I’ve picked up on #middleclassfootballchants – the big trending topic over the weekend which poke fun (gently, I think) at the middle classes. Here’s a top 20:

1. He’s fat, he’s round, his coffee’s coarsely ground. (CulturalSnow)

2. The referee is a guy with a questionable parental, possibly pre-nuptial heritage ( Geordieracer82)

  1. I’ll see your middle class football chants and raise you a landed gentry football chant:

    “One’s man went to mow…went to mow one’s meadow.”
