I Facebooked Your Mom

Filed under: internet — The Deranged One @ 12:47 am

A few months ago, the missus talked me into setting up a Facebook account. Social networking at it’s finest. What is social networking? Beats me. I do know that our 2nd eldest child had a bunch of drama when she was about 14 on myspace. I haven’t spent much time on myspace. Well, just enough time to see that there are a bunch of teenage girls who have dimly lit photos of themselves blowing kisses into the mirror so they can get a cell phone picture. That and a bunch of shit on their profiles that’ll induce seizures.
Anyway, Facebook. No big deal, or so I thought. The sister in law added me as a friend. And then the deluge started. I had people coming out of the woodwork sending friend request. There were a couple that I didn’t have a clue who they were. I had people I haven’t spoken to in 20 years suddenly wanting to be my friend. Apparently, a few of those people were too dense to figure out that there was a reason 20 years had passed.

And then the request began. Here’s a drink request. Kidnap request. Old toy request. Smelly underwear request. And on and on. Last time I checked, there were about 200 pending requests of one kind or another. I requests to join pet causes. I was quite excited when a friend of mine from work invited me to “feel my boobies” or something like that. Since she has a pretty abundant rack, I was all for it. I was dismayed when I discovered that it was some breast cancer awareness thing.

I guess Facebook is okay, but I don’t spend much time on it. Not like some people. My cousin wanted me to join some cause where everybody is planning to avoid (I think they mean boycott) Facebook for a day because they’re pissed about something or other. Fine with me. It’s just a website, not a way of life.

  1. Yea, Facebook does kinda bring the suck with all the stupid requests people send. I’m on there ’cause it lets me keep in touch with friends I have in different places around the world….without having to deal with long email chains, high phone bills, etc. Plus, it’s free and it’s not quite as lame as Myspace…so I just ignore the rest of the BS.

    Maybe I’ll send you a friend request… :P
