It’s the weekend which means it’s time for my weekly wrap-up but before I do that I just want to point out this bit of awesomeness. It’s an article written by ReadWriteWeb about a Facebook/AOL partnership. Hundreds of people found this article when they googled “facebook login” and somehow assumed that this article must be a new version of facebook and then logged in to ReadWriteWeb to leave angry comments about how they could not figure out how the new facebook worked (because they weren’t actually on facebook at all and were still on ReadWriteWeb) and these angry comments kept coming in until ReadWriteWeb finally put up a giant bold statement which basically said “Dear Google visitors: THIS ISN’T FACEBOOK, Y’ALL. You can find facebook at facebook.com. Look, we’ll even give you a link to it. Just leave, okay?” but of course that didn’t help at all and so the “I HATE this new facebook. Where is my wall? Mom, where are you?!” comments kept flowing in and then it got worse because everyone else noticed that the stupid people were confused which was quite hysterical until the other stupid people realized what was going on and started leaving violently angry and poorly-spelled comments insulting the first group of stupid people for being so stupid. Then ReadWriteWeb wrote a whole new post entitled “We’re still not Facebook” but of course that didn’t help at all. It was quite awesome and reminded me a lot of the Dr Pepper debacle. Regardless, I thought I should point out that when you get an angry troll commenting on something you do it’s probably from one of these people. The stupid people who don’t understand facebook. Or possibly the stupid people violently yelling at the other stupid people for being so stupid. Either way it’s a pretty good lesson in why it’s important to not be bothered by the stupid angry people because those people are here to (unwittingly) entertain us. This is all in the Bible, I think. Also, my favorite comment of the whole ReadWriteWeb post: This thread reminds me of the time my grandfather typed his phone number into the microwave’s keypad, then wondered why his kitchen was on fire.

Fried gold. Now on to the wrap-up…
This week on my sex column (which is satirical and relatively safe for work if your boss isn’t a cocknuckle):
This week on the internets:
- I’m doing an open interview at SexIs. Best questions win inappropriate things.
- I wrote you a love letter. It’s very mushy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Comment of the day: It’s a shame about your sponsors, since I just this week sold my watch to buy them tortoise-shell hair combs. ~ MommyTime
