Annoying Memes #3... click 'like' if you're for it

This type of meme is the one that cracks me up quite a bit because you're thinking to yourself, "Who's FOR it? An idiot? I don't know anyone who is out there going 'YAY HEROIN!!'"

Seriously, I've seen this same meme with different subjects, "Click Share if you're against: Child Abuse, Pet Abuse, Drug Abuse, Spousal Abuse...etc." Dude, no one is FOR these things!

Oh and just an aside, if you STILL have that rainbow filter over your picture, TAKE IT DOWN...your 10 minutes of ADD advocacy of the cause du jour was over a month ago. Now you just seem like a lame asshat that forgot to jump off the bandwagon when it left your town.

No worries though, I'm sure that there will be some cause du jour that will allow you to happily pimp out how awesomely tolerant you are soon. (Cause du jour means 'cause of the day' which means whatever the media is pimping out to be the thing you need to focus on today. I'm sure there's a Kardashian involved somehow with it.)

I also don't like people who constantly post their kids' photo as their profile picture. Yeah, I get it..your kids are your life. However, if I wanted to friend your kid, I'd do it (it's illegal for anyone under 13 to have a FB account though) I friended YOU, not your kids.

Simple popularity pandering is also annoying. How many times have you seen a meme, "My mom will quit smoking if I get a million likes!"
So it takes a popularity contest for you ma to do something good for her and for her family? WOW, how lame can Ma be?  How 'bout she just QUIT and not tell anyone! Can she really do that???

oh, and your like won't give a sick kid a new kidney, heart, brain, lungs or toes. What does that? a TRANSPLANT TEAM! and about $250,000.
There is NO ONE who is paying per click for a kid to get a transplant.

I really don't have the appropriate photo of the last meme, I just copied this from the new Bloom County feed. I was so excited to see Berke Breathed start Bloom County again. He's irreverent, goofy and does not hold punches on the Libs as other cartoonist would. It's all fair game to him and I appreciate the candor and the wit that can do that well.

The last annoying meme for this week is the one that says, "Do THIS and hit Share..See what happens!"

You know what happens? NOTHING except you just shared it with another 300 people. 2% will do the same thing expecting some sort of animation or something with no effect.

The only time that actually worked was one time with my cell phone # and a certain command prompt that would tell me what name is attached to my phone. It's some thing where each phone gets a 'name' mine's like Armand Dupop or something odd.

School starts next week. Another semester of trying to explain WHY I don't add fellow students to my FB friends list. Dude, I don't even have my family on mine.
