Tweets of the week: Fashion, frost and … fish!

Funny, cruel, odd, personal … you get it all on Twitter. Each week, we’ll have a rundown of some of our favourite tweets. Here are the tweets for the week ending 5th February 2012.

The hills are alive …

Last week, we had the OPQS boys in an amateur production of Rumblefish. This week, we have BMC’s Manuel Quinziato (my new über-crush) waiting for his audition as the Lonely Goatherder in The Sound of Music.

This, after a Twitter exchange about the cold with Andreas Klier in which fan Heidi asked for a picture of Manuel in his lederhosen. See how it’s done, people? Ask on Twitter and you shall receive! It’s like magic!

But Manuel wasn’t the only one concerned with fashion this week. My ultimate über-crush, Fabian Cancellara, seemed downright outraged at a fashion faux pas he witnessed. (I find myself asking this question a lot: where on earth was Fabian Cancellara when he took this picture? Looks like some hellish Euro-trash disco…)

Doin’ the Iroquois snowdance

I fear I might be to blame for the sudden Arctic conditions around Europe as I love snow and every once in a while I do a little Iroquois snowdance to make the white stuff come down. Well, I obviously don’t know my own strength … Back to Fabian:

My favourite part of this tweet, his Christmas swearing. Not “holy f…” but “holly f….” In Fabianese, even cursing takes on a certain charm of its own.

Literature and Lilliputians

In the meantime, it’s a long season so Cancellara’s RSNT teammate Ben King has taken to serious literature …

while some of the Lotto-Belisol boys are practicing for their part as Lilliputians in Gulliver’s Travels.

It’s a touch late, but it has a literary theme. Burns Night was celebrated on the 25th of January and David Millar, being Scottish and all, found a touch of home in Spain. Haggis in a can – dear God, Haggis in a can!!!!

More fish tales

One day, I may get bored of Jens Voigt‘s fish updates, but until I do, they’re going in Tweets of the Week. Jens is obviously outnumbered – by his six children and the 45,000 fish that now live in his aquariums.

He may have no control over his own family, but Jens seems to be a parenting inspiration for others.

And on that note, I’ll leave the last word of the post to Dave Zabriskie.
