I post tons of pointless and ridiculous things. I have a lot of free time, think too much, and enough of an ego to believe that everyone is interested in what I have to say.
I mean why wouldn’t they? I am damn fascinating.
I haven’t really paid too much attention in the past but lately Facebook has been cracking me up. Off to the right there is a sidebar where it recommends pages that you may “Like”. These suggestions appear to be based upon whatever post you are writing at any given moment , which leads to all sorts of ridiculousness.
There are pages you can LIKE for sleeping, eating, pooping, jelly, and socks.
Seriously? I mean who DOESN’T like to sleep or eat. Seriously? We need a page for that? What about breathing and other autonomic functions.
Maybe a meth addicted anorexic wouldn’t, but I am sure there is a page they would like. Such as Emesis or Insomnia.
Every time I post anything random words are chosen for my liking. Pages to like about muffins, ketchup, blankets.
I just wonder, does anyone, without the assistance of Facebook, ever say:
“I REALLY REALLY LIKE JAM! I WONDER IF THERE IS A PAGE ON JAM THAT I CAN LIKE?”
And if there is such a person, if they have ever, ever in their life been laid.
AND – more to the point – what about the person who MADE the jam page? Huh, HUH! What about that poor sap!?
