The #huntersongs hashtag is the laugh you need this long weekend

The premise is simple enough; take a song title and swap out one of the words for a local suburb.

Back in April, the local Twitterverse came alive mashing up song titles with placenames under the hashtag #huntersongs. And the results are both skilful and chuckle-inducing.

Below you’ll find some of our favourites, and we encourage you to dust off your Twitter account and give it a go to keep it alive.
