SG50ShadesOfGrey will make you ROFL B1.png

“Hey Larry Yeo, you’re not making me moist enough … it’s the dewy look I’m going for.” #SG50ShadesOfGrey

We may be small, but we aim to please.

Yup, Singaporeans are a bunch of secret smut addicts – that, and we write the best erotica, ever. Want proof of our prowess with the pen? #SG50ShadesOfGrey is the only hashtag you need.

“Quickie” explainer for those not in the know: Said hashtag is the lovechild of that infamous OL (office lady) porn novel-turned-movie and the “hard” sell SG50 nation-wide campaign that’s basically been uh, rammed down our throats the past few months.   

And really, #SG50ShadesOfGrey is the perfect combo meal of procreation and patriotism (incidentally also two of the issues our beloved government is perennially obsessed with.)

Indeed, as my colleague put it via a series of sustained screams from across our cubicle wall, it’s trending “like siao” right this very instant.

Not convinced, I excused myself to the bathroom, whipped out my smartphone … and was immediately inundated with scores of suggestive tweets “poking” fun at all sorts of obscure #SG stuff, from MRT and ERP gantries to local foodie faves like Paddlepop, Hokkien mee and belachan. (We do like to uh, stuff ourselves, it seems!)

But don’t take my word for it. See for yourself why #SG50ShadesOfGrey is such a stiff contender for #BestHashTagEver – and guys out there, keep it coming (and coming), please!
