When Harry Nilsson wanted very much to tell us about his best friend, he did so through song, and he expressed his feelings thusly:
People, let me tell you ’bout my best friend
He’s a warm-hearted person who’ll love me to the end
People let me tell you ’bout my best friend
He’s a one-boy, cuddly toy
My up, my down, my pride and joy
I think we should probably bring back the use of “one-boy cuddle toy” as a general signal of affection, but I don’t know if we’ve all got time to write entire bouncy songs about our friends these days, so instead, we use stuff like these tweets.
Let’s take a look!

A good friend tweet is worth a thousand songs.
How would you describe your best friend?
Give it a whirl in the comments.
