The Hash Tag is dead. Long live the Hash Tag.

Sure they can make Tweets seem like some unreadable programming language, but for every hash tag claiming Monday for cats, declaring your love for GI Joe the Movie or starting a movement to bring everysinglepopstar to Brazil, there's a truly funny hash tag meme. Turns out, the hive-mind can be clever. Searching the history of Twitter, we've come up with what he think are the 10 Funniest Hash Tags. Sadly, Twitter.com itself is a lousy place to go looking for older memes, but Google works just fine.
