  11. gus_f_

    TitusOReily wondering who will take out “the Hird” in 2016 for most outstanding contribution to Twitter material!

  12. Lemmiwinks

    You should’ve gone after the Hawks fans more rather than the club. Those morons know less about humility than Anthony Mundine.

  13. Snert Underpant

    Wonderful effort that Titus! Whilst sad to lose some of your favourite characters like Mighty Mick, Hirdy and Watto, whilst we have young sports people, alcohol, drugs and IPhones, you are only even a brief moment away from applying your satirical torch. My Christmas wish for you is that your D’s provide you with less material than they have in the past.

  14. Patrick Lindsay

    I still think that Josh Kennedy one is the best tweet I’ve ever seen

  15. sheppo

    You only have to start reading the first 1/2 dozen of these and you’ll find yourself laughing out loud.
    Not good on a train by the way.

  18. Steve Schlecht

    I haven’t been on Twitter enough, a lot of these I hadn’t seen. They’re fantastic

  19. KentuckysaChris

  21. Kerryn Edwards

    Love it. Hard to pick a fave but I really liked the Hodge one –
    Let whoever hasn’t elbowed someone, crushed someone’s head against a point post and been caught drink driving, cast the first stone!!!!!

  22. Oscar Pellizzon

    Titus is brilliant. I love the nz warship at the start

  23. Bonjour_Pippy

    TitusOReily The year of tweets should be made into a hard copy coffee table book, an annual reference for great reading!

  24. Ben Plumb
