Yesterday, I wrote about the president's push to start a hashtag trend on Instagram to promote Obamacare. Excluding accounts for nonprofits created to promote Obamacare, a grand total of five people complied with the request to post a throwback picture of an injury with the hashtag #GetCoveredNow. An Instagram search shows that only 59 total photos have been posted with the #GetCoveredNow tag, which is a pretty small number compared to these 12 seemingly obscure tags:

1. #corgibutt

#Corgibutt has been tagged on 7,871 posts, while similar tag #corgibuttsmakeusnuts has been used on 1,023 pictures.

A quiet corgi hiding in a corner is one that's getting up to mischief. Here, a corgi tries to hide while shredding a floor mat. #hisbuttgavehimaway #foreversplooting

2. #cheerlebrity

A "cheerlebrity" is somebody (usually a teenager) who has gained some sort of status or notoriety in the all-star cheerleading community. Over 9,000 posts on Instagram carry this tag.

3. #gofriars

The hashtag for my alma mater's sports program has 3,977 images tagged on Instagram, roughly equal to the number of undergraduates at the school.

Congratulations, Coach Cooley and the #pcbb team! We're rooting for you in the Big Dance! #gofriars #heartandsoul #BigEast #MarchMadness

4. #brony

A "brony" is an adult male fan of the television show My Little Pony. The hashtag "#brony," has been used on 259,007 posts, while "bronys" has been used on 5,393.

5. #foodismyboyfriend

The hashtag "food is my boyfriend" appears on 3,895 pictures.

This hashtag, favored by Michigan and Dayton fans as of late, has been used on 315 pictures.

7. #macchiatolove

Fans of the Starbucks beverage have used the hashtag on 132 pictures, nearly triple the total of #GetCoveredNow.

8. #platypusfeet

Believe it or not, the hashtag "platypus feet" appears on 69 photographs. Most of them are pictures of human feet.

9. #yourperfect

Grammar snobs may want to skip this one, but the grammatically incorrect hashtag "your perfect" has been used over 51,000 times, or nearly a thousand times more than #GetCoveredNow.

10. #justinbieberlookalike

Canadian singer Justin Bieber had better watch his back, as more than 9,000 pictures carry the "Justin Bieber lookalike" tag.

11. #ducksflytogether

In the eyes of this author, The Mighty Ducks is one of the top ten, if not top five Disney films of all time. Instagram apparently agrees, as the hashtag "Ducks Fly Together" has been used 7,151 times.

There IS only one Duck Dynasty. 90s kids know Coach Bombay taught us how to play like a duck. #ducksflytogether #quackquackquack #flyingV

12. #obamacaresucks

Nearly 2,000 pictures are tagged as "Obamacare sucks," without any urging by President Obama.
