The answer is ‘Polystyrene’

Twitter. The logo, our hashtag and the bird.

Social Media never ceases to amaze me, it can be a link to an interesting site or to something completely random. The flow of information, news and conversation is constant and endless.

I asked a question on twitter late yesterday evening (Thursday) and was quite surprised at the number of responses I received, considering it was quiet late.
“Anybody interested in getting their #nameinfoam? We were thinking of a little competition tomorrow seeing as it’s a Bank holiday weekend.”
I didn’t expect so many replies, I tweeted the question without a plan… I now had to find a question for this impromptu competition.

Before I could think of a question I thought it would be appropriate to cut the hashtag sign out in foam and use the twitter logo and our little twitter bird for a photo.
A question still eluded me, I couldn’t even answer a question suggested by @1130cc “How much would the word “madeinhollywood” weigh if it was 24″x4″x1″, and made of foam?”
How bad is that?

However, I have come up with a solution to this dilemma, I won’t ask a question I will provide the answer and you have to give me the question. Anybody who watches “Mock the Week” TV programme will be familiar with the format.

The answer is Polystyrene.

An example would be: What material does Made in Hollywood use to create cool looking props?

You can leave your questions below in a comment or on twitter with the hashtag #nameinfoam. (So that I’ll be able to find them)
The best ‘question’ will get their name in foam and if it is particularly good, funny, smart and reusable we might give-away a twitter cushion, created by Heli Designs.
The winner will be selected on the 2nd of August to give you a chance to think of a question.

So have a bit of fun this weekend and ask a question.
