Tweeting across the GFW

It has come to my attention that users in some countries cannot view my microblog on Twitter (@PinoBatch) due to national firewalls. Here's a selection of photos and illustrations depicted in the microblog:

But on Easter, I put on my Sunday best. πŸ”—

Does dressing up as Pinocchio make me a "firry"? πŸ”—

For several years, I've dressed as a Weeble for Halloween.

"You gonna wear that dress?"
"It's not a dress; it's a thobe." πŸ”—

But "Adrees" on the label isn't helping my case. πŸ”—

Disirregardless, the leaves still need to be raked. πŸ”—

To heck with orange; I'm wearing black for Black Friday. πŸ”—

"Like mother, like son."
The fairy who adopts the puppet in chapter 16 of Carlo Collodi's The Adventures of Pinocchio has blue hair. She'd look more like Joy from Inside Out. πŸ”—

A waifu (ワむフ) or husbando (ハズバンド) is your fictional partner. Yet son (ソン) has no accent to distinguish it.

Meet Coorow, mai son. πŸ”—


Playskool sells a stuffed toy called a Lullaby Gloworm. But it looks less like a "worm" than a little boy in a sleeping bag. πŸ”—
