Odd couples, non-couples and single life in this week's Twitter round-up. Plus something about Graeme Swann's pants.

It's unclear whether MC Hammer and Cash in the Attic are also being presented as an either/or situation.

The gratitude
Never let it be said that Graeme Swann doesn't have standards.

The conflict resolution

The big stage

Not sure "knowing the words" is the only qualification for the role.

The odd couple
When one guy's being self-deprecating and another… just doesn't get it.

He meant John Terry, but James Taylor took the opportunity to deliberately misunderstand.

KP also didn't understand. But it wasn't deliberate.

So Taylor generously gave him a second chance to get in on the joke.

And KP again spurned it.

While I'm overjoyed that Kemar Roach is continuing to share his deep and meaningful tweets with us, even after his return to the test team, what has happened to those other two great regulars - Nando's Watch and Jet Lag? Could it be that somehow, nowhere in the world is there a cricketer complaining about jet lag? And that cricketers are blasphemously trying out other restaurant chains? I'm appalled, and I'm sure that all other right-thinking readers are too.
