Are you a member of a lame Facebook group?
OK, I admit that I probably look at Facebook way too much (I really need to find gainful employment). I enjoy seeing what my family and friends are doing up to a certain point.
Some people (and you know who you are) feel the need to update us with your status every ten minutes by posting such compelling tidbits as "Just got home, going to take a shower" or "My cat just hacked up a huge hairball. Gross!!!!"
Yes, it is gross, and thanks for sharing that bit of information with me.
What really gets me is the variety of groups you can join on Facebook. Old Sigmund Freud would have a field day trying to figure out what would compel someone to join “Laughing with your best friend till you can’t breathe” group, which has more than 500,000 members, or “I can’t believe I have braces in college" group, which has a mere three members. (Guess it’s not cool to have braces when you’re in college.)
So without further ado, allow me to present my Top 5 lamest Facebook groups.
5. “I bet I can find a million people that hate Tokio Hotel”
There are a ton of groups willing to offer wagers on getting people to join. What I don’t understand is what happens when they lose. My suggestion is they are removed from Facebook for a minimum of one year and are given a lifetime ban from starting new groups.
4. “Join if you ever said I’m not drinking again”
The great thing about Facebook is seeing groups from other countries. This one comes courtesy of our friends across the pond in the United Kingdom. (Are we really surprised at that?) The biggest disappointment to me about this group is that not a single one of my friends are members.
3. “That Waldo is a tricky son of a bitch”
You might think this was started by some middle school student, but it was actually founded by someone attending Wichita State University. While it might be hard for someone under the age of eight to find Waldo (after all he is a “tricky son of a bitch”), I suggest we just let Waldo keep hiding and maybe he and this group will both go away.
2. “I have a tendency to laugh at inappropriate times”
Do you laugh when someone gets severely injured? How about when someone is talking about a death in their family? If you laugh at inappropriate times, this group is for you. The group page offers photos posted by its members including a picture of a little boy crying in front of a tombstone with Santa Claus’s name on it.
Hilarious! I laughed out loud so I guess I need to join.
1. “I used to make potions out of shampoo as a kid”
The group site claims “As a child, many of us used to concoct fun mixtures out of our moms' shampoo, face wash, soap, etc. You know you loved it.” I guess these are the same people that went on to graduate with an advanced degree in Chemistry at Visible Changes University.
Do you have a Facebook group you love to hate? Let me know. I’d love to join so that all my friends will know what I’m up to!
