It all started innocently enough.
I was grooving to some Beatles when “Baby, You Can Drive My Car” (from Rubber Soul) came on, and I noticed, for perhaps the first time, the presence of cowbell. It was an epiphany of sorts.
It was all downhill from there. Next thing I know, I’m posting this:
Apres moi, le deluge.
Le deluge of #cowbell tweets, baby!
I asked the Twitterverse, and the twitterverse responded, turning my humble quest into a minor tweme. We didn’t quite achieve our goal of becoming a “trending topic” on Twitter search, but I’m very proud of all that we accomplished in the span of a few short, unproductive hours.
Twitterverse, once again you have shown the kind of can-do attitude that makes things happen. And for that, I thank you.
My gift to you, in return, is this:
And, from my friends across the Twitterverse:
Don’t let the #cowbell tweme die! As @bradjward so eloquently put it (in fewer than 140 characters), “If you want to make a grown man’s dream come true, won’t you say #cowbell back to me?”
Log on today to Twitter and post something — anything — using the #cowbell hashtag. Please, do it for the grown man you see here before you.
