15 Funniest Hashtags of All Time

#Hilarious

Ever since "#Hashtag" with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake (on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"), it's been clear that people have all gotten a little hashtag obsessed. Instead of being a simple way to add search terms to your posts, they've become a means of adding humor and of participating in fun hashtag parties with lots of other web users. Here are 15 hashtag campaigns that made us laugh really hard, whether they were supposed to be funny or not.

#CareerEndingTwitterTypos

#CareerEndingTwitterTypos

@pattonoswalt

Comedian Patton Oswalt started a hilariously vulgar new hashtag trend called #CareerEndingTwitterTypos. Each rude typo changed the tweet's meaning so drastically and so heinously that it could cost someone a job if the boss saw it.

#MyGirlfriendNotAllowedTo & #MyBoyfriendNotAllowedTo

#MyGirlfriendNotAllowedTo

@ItsNateCollins

 When the excellent #MyGirlfriendNotAllowedTo and #MyBoyfriendNotAllowedTo hashtags went viral, the tweets quickly turned sarcastic and satirical. At least, we hope these were meant to be satirical.

Example:

  • "#MyGirlfriendNotAllowedTo breathe, when you breathe, your chest expands. Who you pushing your chest out for? Answer me."
  • "#MyBoyfriendNotAllowedTo have candles on his birthday cake. What are you wishing for? All your dreams came true when you met me."

#IHateMyParents

#IHateMyParents

 Twitter

When lots of bratty teenagers took to social media to complain about the gifts they received for Christmas, the internet decided to turn things around and punk their ungrateful butts. Using their hashtag, the good people of the internet showed up with ludicrously entitled posts complaining about getting the wrong color BMW, etc. Awesome burn!

Parents are not always so good at using social media. Some parents aren't that great at ​texting either.

You know how you've been singing along to a song, and suddenly you realize you've got the words all wrong? Now you can tweet your funny misheard lyrics, and Jimmy Fallon himself might even read it on his show.
