The iPhone 5 release has been one of the most anticipated event of the 2012 mobile industry year. Though many argue whether or not the iPhone 5 lives up to the expectations, still one thing is certain; There is a population out there just dying to get their hands of the latest Apple iteration, if for nothing more than the status mark. Twitter has taken notice of this phenomena, and in its classic "voice of the people" fashion, has produced a hilarious trending hashtag #ButUGotThatiPhone5Tho that explores just how desperate some folks are or what some folks are willing to do to get and keep that iPhone 5.

Check out some of the funny photos and tweets that have surfaced. Trending for nearly two days now this hashtag makes for some great Monday morning water cooler chat!
