…but I hope it was good

June 18th, 2009 · 164 Comments

…because there’s no measure of self-worth more important than the public acknowledgment that you were, in fact, born.

[Mark:] Thank you to everyone that wished me a happy birthday. I had a great time an I wish everyone could have been there. Thanks again. [Jennifer:] I didnt wish you a happy birthday because our friendship has dwindled into nothingness and I am angry with you about it... but I hope it was good

Perfect for each other

May 14th, 2009 · 204 Comments

I’m having a hard time deciding who in this group of geniuses most deserves a smack in the head first. To make it easier, I’m going to tell myself that Krystal is using some new kind of ironic dialect of homophone-swapping slang. And Jennalyn…well, her name is Jennalyn, and therefore I think it’s safe to assume she’s gotten the short end of the stick so far in life, so she gets a pass. But the other three?

you guys are great together

P.S. Notice the date! (tear)

Some advice on roommate living

April 28th, 2009 · 142 Comments

Our anonymous submitter was mildly amused when he noticed this little hypothetical how-to pop up in his Facebook feed. But the real kicker, he realized, is that the one person tagged in the note happens to be (ouch) the notewriter’s current roommate.

Adds our submitter: “To my surprise, the girl never commented on it, but I’m sure she got the message — she was called out!”

Why you should not be Facebook friends with your parents…or grandparents

April 8th, 2009 · 142 Comments

Writes Halley in Idaho: “Yeahhh, that’s my mom and my grandpa right there. (This is what happens when old people join Facebook.)”

Happy Birthday Dad! I'll call you on my way home from school.

Thank you, but you know I don't accept calls from people who are driving because I am afraid it will end in a CRASH.

Snaps for schadenfreude!

March 16th, 2009 · 98 Comments

Facebook‘s new “I like this” feature doesn’t allow you to give “thumbs down” to your friends’ status updates or posted links — a boon to both the supportive, snap-cup-loving, kindergarten-teacher-types on your friends list and the die-hard passive-aggressives on your frenemies list!

Daniel fractured his arm in 3 places.

The even bigger “ouch”?

ouch.

Busted by Facebook

See, kids: this is what happens when you live in the awkward part of the Venn diagram where “Facebook friends” and “real friends” don’t overlap.

hmm must have missed that invite...weird...

Glad you can change your facebook status but not call me back

You know, I’m getting input here that I’m reading as relatively hostile

February 1st, 2009 · 197 Comments

Writes our anonymous submitter: “This girl invited every single one of her friends on Facebook into a ‘forum’ to plan for her birthday celebrations…six months in advance.”

This is not a party, only a reminder to not forget...again. ATTENTION: Aside from a few of my friends, most people seem to have forgotten my birthday last year. That kind of pissed me off, it was like 16 candles without the sitting on the table with a hot guy at the end. So since my birthday is less than 6 months away I wanted to give you a forum in which to plan for my birthday. Thank you.

The kicker? within a few hours, our submitter says, almost everyone had already RSVP’d.
