Susan Boyle’s Hashtag Malfunction Invites You to Her Anal Bum Party

Over the past few days, a slow burn of amused tweets about it have spread across the Twitterscape. Some users are split on the issue - all puns are perpetually intended – while others think it’s a massive PR fail and still others believe it to be a stroke of pure trending genius.

How did it rear up (we kill ourselves) again? We may have found what appears to be the genesis of the resurrection.
And now, the rest is history.
