In my humble opinion Facebook can sometimes be flat out wacko. For instance, I don't get the whole FarmVille thing. I tried it once for fifteen minutes, vowing never to return. Then the next day I found that one of my friends fed my cows and another friend found a mystery egg on my property. I have cows? I have property? Huh? And doesn't it seem that every Facebook friend wants you to join some oddball group? At present, I have 133 requests. It's out of control. I will cop to joining gay marriage groups, and of course I was fully behind Betty White hosting Saturday Night Live (which worked!!), but usually I just delete.
Tonight, I read in an update that a few friends have joined the group Petition to remove Facebook group praying for President Obama's death. Quite a mouthful. But I was intrigued. I went to their Facebook page and I found this image...
In my eyes, it's a legitimate beef. Praying for anyone's death is just plain creepy. How do these folks reconcile ill will to their god? Surely, they must be breaking a couple of rules. Now what was the heinous page that was being petitioned? Take a look.
DEAR LORD, THIS YEAR YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTOR, PATRICK SWAYZIE. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE ACTRESS, FARRAH FAWCETT. YOU TOOK MY FAVORITE SINGER, MICHAEL JACKSON. I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW, MY FAVORITE PRESIDENT IS BARACK OBAMA. AMEN
Even more of a mouthful. And here's their image.
Now, the first thing I saw on this page, I kid you not, wasn't the image above, but an update that read Everyone post pictures of your poop! I want to show you mine but it is bloody and i get embarrassed.
I have a hard time taking this site too seriously, especially since they claim their favorite actor was Patrick Swayzie and their favorite actress was Farah Fawcett...AND they managed to misspell both names!!
I'd go on about this, but really, I'd much rather post pics of my poop.
