A big shout out to British vicar, Reverand Bob Mason, who used Facebook to get 200 strangers to attend a Royal Marine veteran’s funeral because he feared no one would turn up. James McConnell passed away at a nursing home last month but had no living relatives to attend his funeral so the reverand used Facebook to contact members of the Royal Marines and anyone else who wanted to attend. More than 200 people turned up, many of who were marines. One veteran told a BBC reporter “We’re family, we’re all family,”

Oh for the love of all things pink. A dog owner in Tennessee dumped his bulldog-mix hound at an animal shelter because … wait for it …. he thought the dog was gay. I don’t know, something about humping a male dog or barking with a lisp, but anywho, the poor pooch was hours away from being put down when an animal loving tribe of Facebookers came to its rescue. The animal shelter was bombarded with people willing to take the gay dog (who wasn’t so much gay, as just showing off his dominance). No need to have worried however, as the dapper pooch had already been snaffled up by a veterinary technician who named him Elton. Oh how precious.
WTF? One of the Monopoly pieces is going to be voted off the board. Yep, you heard me. The toymaker Hasbro is holding a Facebook “save your token ” campaign. The least popular is going to get the flick permanently because there is a pushy friggin cat, guitar, toy robot, helicopter and diamond ring all wanting a go. So who will be gone forever … the Scottie dog, top hat, race car, battleship, wheelbarrow, shoe, thimble or iron?
Whoopsie. Montana’s tourism promoter accidentally posted “fuck this job” on the official Montana Tourism Facebook page. Like.
If the US government wants to get serious about stopping these Jihadists blowing up consulates they might want to scour Facebook because they are there, posting away, giving away their plans. Evidently they warned of increased threats just prior to the Benghazi attacks and even posted Chris Stevens morning jogging route.
Psst Seriously, where are the trolls when you need them?
Harry’s little exploit in Las Vegas not only got him a bucket full of woe from his granny but his girlfriend dumped him. Now there is talk that Captain Harry Wales of the 3 Regiment Army Air Corps may be disciplined by the army too. Dear god, is no one amused? Hmm, yes, about 30,000 of you. Facebook has now got a page encouraging people to go full monty in support of the best friggin prince EVER. Go on support Harry with a naked salute right here.
Oh bless, why can’t more police be like Sweden’s? When an off duty Stockholm cop came across a Facebook post about a desperate mother’s plea to find her daughter’s missing Teddy bear he uploaded it onto the official police Facebook page. He asked that if anyone came across the Teddy to leave it at the nearest police station “so Tyra can see her friend again!” Despite the policeman’s good intentions some people have complained that it’s a waste of police resources. Hmm, they wouldn’t be bitching if it was a pedobear!!!!!
Note to self, never post a big wad of cash on Facebook. A 17 year old girl in Sydney, who was helping her granny count a big pile of cash she had stashed, decided to post a photo of it on Facebook. Enter big bad wolves. Two men, armed with a knife and a wooden club, stormed the teen’s parent’s home that very night demanding the cash. Problem? The teenager didn’t live there and neither did granny. Unfortunately, for the parents they did and had to deal with the thugs. Fail.
Psst Sheez, I hope she friggin defriend the bastards!!!
Attention all bigamists, do not and I repeat do not befriend both your wives on Facebook even if you have changed your name , because that is a sure way to get slapped with a bigamy charge. Oh and for god sake don’t post friggin wedding snaps of marriage number two. Hmm, isn’t that right Alan O’Neill or is it Alan Fulk? Damn that “People You May Know” feature.
