Friends don't let friends make misspellings on pieces of Facebook flair.


Why, yes...good friends don't let you do stupid things alone, which is why they send out these silly little misspelled buttons--so that they don't have to hang out by themselves in their little spelling-challenged worlds...

I use that "Pieces of Flair" application on Facebook. When I search for new pieces of flair, it saddens me to see how many pieces of flair have horrific misspellings on them. Then I wonder--are these people being ironic or just stupid? I almost always decide they're being completely retarded.

Sometimes my friends send me grammatically-challenged pieces of flair just because they know that when I see these things, I'll get all pissed off. Not funny, you guys. Not funny at all!

I agree, and have also cringed at these sights when looking through flair. Oh, idea! I'm thinking of making a new flair piece:
"Think before you flair"
Hmm, perhaps it should stay in my head. Oops, too late. ;P

My friends send me flair with typos, too! And sometimes I can't tell if that's why someone sent it or if they didn't notice the typo... :)

There are sooooo many examples of bad spelling and grammar on facebook. Any old Joe Schmo can create an application.

PearLady, I love the "Think before you flair" slogan! :)

Maggie, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who gets these typo-ridden pieces of flair and isn't always certain that the people sending them to me notice the typos... (Most of my friends notice and just do it to be wise-asses, though...haha!)

Becky, I almost think they should administer an IQ test--or at least a basic spelling test!--before allowing someone to make a piece of flair! :)
