Just in case you're having a less-than-ordinary Sunday, trust Twitter to make you test your (in)sanity. One of the great things about Twitter is that for some strange reason or the other, Twitterati are always obsessing over some (odd) thing.

So, when #BabyBubba began trending on the micro-blogging website on Sunday, everyone asked who or what is a Baby Bubba anyway? And things got weird. Very weird.

Now the interesting-sounding #BabyBubba and #BubbaMissing hashtags did generate a lot of fawning on the king of social media platforms. But we just couldn't find why the hashtags had taken over the Twitter feeds of everyone with a pulse.

We've now got proof. These were probably some of our favourite, most random, most confused tweets using the hashtags. Most of these tweeps had no idea what they were talking about, clearly. #TheDress all over again, you ask?

And just when we were giving up on ever finding out what the deal with #BabyBubba was, we found this: A YouTube video posted by marketing agency Pulp Strategy of a 'cute little sheep' going missing from Frolic Island (wait, what?).

The video, Bubba Wools goes missing, search and rescue ops begin, had one Ted Dawson ( a teddy bear, obviously) giving out details about two-year-old Wools, who was last seen on Friday at Happy Faces Park. And then there was that 'emotional appeal' by his parents that went something like, “Bubba... Bubba...”


So in case you wish to 'help' his parents and end their (and our) misery, take notes folks: Here are Bubba Wools' details, three feet tall, fair complexion, medium built, white hair, black eyes.

Just visit: rescuegame.com and get it over with, we say. Also, he was last seen wearing a white woolen sweater. Beat that!

Lesson of the day: Sometimes, Twitter can be really random.
