Facebook, you're STILL killing me...

There's been a trend of these pictures being sent around Facebook--you upload this photo and then tag a bunch of your friends, matching up your friends with the characteristics listed in the photo. For example, in the picture below, one of my friends tagged me as "The One Thats Up to No Good." (Totally true, in case you haven't figured that out yet.)


Ironically, I got tagged with a characteristic that contained an apostrophe catastrophe. But that's not the only apostrophe catastrophe on here. Every place they could and SHOULD have put an apostrophe...they didn't. Sigh. Maybe they're morally opposed to punctuation and/or apostrophes? I dunno.

But the snafus don't stop there...

In this next picture, there are no apostrophe catastrophes (yay!)... instead, there are random pluralizations and a silly misspelling. Plus, when did airhead become two words? And what exactly do you have to do to be that friend who's described as a "rarely"?


I think I'd tag whoever created this picture as either "simple" or "high," and definitely not "studious"...

High, simple or even possibly, dare I say it, drunk? A real shame they didn't put a tipsy one in there, I know for sure who I'd tag with THAT one. ;D

If you think this is bad, add the Flair application and look through some of the buttons. Facebook at its finest, I'm telling you...

Also, shouldn't you be "The one who's up to no good"? I've never met you, but I'm pretty sure you're a person and not a thing. I know all my Facebook friends are people.

@ LadyStyx: I have no idea at all who your tipsy friend might be! ;) No idea whatsoever!

@ Bridgete: Yes, some of that flair is truly terrible! Same deal with the Bumper Sticker application. Plus, I have some wise-ass friends who think it's really funny to send me stickers/flair with misspellings/bad grammar because they KNOW I'll freak out!

@ k-bro: You're exactly right! Indeed, I *am* a person. :) It should absolutely say "who's"!
