I Hate My Sister and Other Lessons I Learned From Facebook.


*****<3<3****()|()*******I just adore my mom so much! She is the bomb diggity. She is awesomer than Arby’s Sauce! If your mom rocks your socks off, repost this! If you don’t we all know that you’d rather eat Tacos than spend time with your mother *******<3*****SQUIRRELS!*****

:) :) :) :) It’s woodsman week! Our burley, hunting men are so great and help bring groundhog meat to our table (even if it is roadkill occasionally)! I would be lost without my woodsman! He reminds me of Daniel Boone. If you love your woodsmen as much as I love mine, repost this status while doing a duck call. What better way to thank your man? (if you don’t repost, you must be a veagan) :) :) :) :) :) :)

*^*^*^*^*I SUPPORT DISHWASHERS*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*Do you know someone who works hard each day washing dishes in the back of a resturant? I DO! I SUPPORT THAT DISHWASHER! Each day, they risk geting soap on theyre clothing. Please repost this in honor of your hardworking dishwashers. Did you know 97% are too ashamed to repost this? Be the 3% who isn’t. *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*

0000####00000####000---I <3 my sista. She is my life! Without my sista I would just be so sad. If my sista eva ran away I wud just through my self in a ditch and lie in the mud. If you repost this your sista will never run away. If you don’t, It means You hate your sista and you want to submerge your head in a buckett of wet cat food 00000###000###000

I had fun just now.
p.s. any misspellings up there are intentional, just making that clear.

Anyways, I think those statuses are so stupid.

I mean seriously. Reposting something someone else wrote about how much you love a certain person doesn’t actually mean anything.

Let’s say my mother posted the one I wrote about “dottas.” I wouldn’t look at that and be like, “oh man, my mom is the best, she loves me so much.” I really, honestly wouldn’t think anything of it.

Maybe that’s just me, but I think if you really want to tell someone how much you love them (and you just really feel the need to do it on facebook), private message the person. I think that would be a lot more meaningful than a reposted status with a million asterisks.

And the “I support ______” reposts…write something yourself. Or even better,get off your butt and do something about it, if you really are in that 3% (which seriously has to be a made up number, since they all say 97% won’t repost and 3% will).
Writing “I’m __ weeks and craving ___” does not help raise breast cancer awareness. If you want to play that little game, fine, but don’t do it believing you're making any difference.

Maybe this is just me being cynical, maybe I am the only one who has ever thought this, and maybe it does actually make a difference. I don’t know.

Just my thoughts.

AND! onto the whole statuses vs statii.



noun, often attributive \ˈstā-təs, ˈsta-\
plural sta·tus·es

It’s statuses, so if you’re one of those people who says statii, I encourage you to stop.

p.s. don’t be offended if you’re a groundhog hunting woodsman, I’ve never tasted groundhog, it might actually be good.

You nailed it, Bekah! I find those statuses annoying too...well, except for the occasional sarcastic ones. ;o)

Whenever people post the "craving" statuses I ALWAYS think they're pregnant! Every time!

You are funny but at the same time everything you said is certainly true.
