RT @emmaexpress Hmmph. Only when misanthropy is WOTD do you realise how much potential there was in vaccimulgence.
Still, although many Artwiculati despaired, as ever, many also rose to the challenge. @4TailsLampwork asked —
RT @4TailsLampwork Can one cheerfully practice misanthropy?
She was answered in the affirmative by several. For example:
RT @snatchbeast misanthropy is underrated
RT @harrarp Misanthropy has its moments. Like a fart in a crowded elevator.
On the other hand, most Artwiculate tended to agree with @SJHatzi:
RT @SJHatzi Misanthropy? Forget it. Philanthropy is where it’s at.
RT @K_Geddings Sticks & stones may break bones but misanthropy rots from the inside out.
RT @bwlightning His misanthropy brought him down until another’s hand helped him up. That’s how he finally let go of it. #artwiculate
The bleakest comment, I thought, though one of the most well expressed came from @Wifsie
RT @Wifsie No miracles here / Darkness covers everything / Misanthropy reigns. #artwiculate
But you can’t keep the atmosphere at Artwiculate depressed for very long. Here are my favorite puns of the day.
RT @tWordBird Miss Anthropy: Phil Anthropy’s evil twin. #artwiculate misanthropy
RT @DrJillZ @artwiculate Misanthropy believes mankind is an oxymoron
… and idiom play
RT @BurningHawk1969 Little misanthropy sat under a canopy, eating ashes and lye. #artwiculate
RT @marcosarroyos No one said Mando suffered from misanthropy. No, he enjoyed it too much to call it suffering.
I collected one anagram and one tonguetwister
RT @DrMobs He has misanthropy ?/Oh, his spry man hate! #anagrampoetry
RT @routermonkey Mark’s merciless misanthropy made for many mercenary Machiavellian maneuvers. #artwiculate
To close, the usual problem – how to classify these final RTs? Well, the first is a kind of definition.
RT @lexiconehead Misanthropy is when it happens on the floor and you don’t care who steps in it.
RT @Gardencomet I used to suffer from misanthropy but there’s a cream for it now 😉
RT @Squawkingalah Actually I only suffer true misanthropy at certain times of the month.
RT @dmriver You can take misanthropy with you when you go.
RT @JonPowles Misanthropy is the opposite of music
I was hesitating over which tweets to wind up with. It was almost a dead heat between @dmriver @JonPowles and – well @TiddK won:
RT @TiddK Misanthropy : the more we practice, the worse we become . #artwiculate #paradox
Once again, thanks to all the Artwiculati. It was fun reading your entries and surprisingly difficult to sift out today’s 20 odd RTs.
I wait with interest to see who wins the day, and look forward to more tweets tomorrow. Happy Easter, everyone.
