If I get 1 Million Likes, my cat Tuna says, that he won’t scratch my new couch.
First of all, that’s a giant lie. Cat’s can’t talk. And secondly, no cat would promise that. They just wouldn’t. It would be beneath them.
Lately, there has been copious amounts of people pleading for facebook Likes in order to attain something in the real world. Not just the www (world wide web), but actual real life. Many of these have to be jokes. I mean, who would ask for Likes to convince their wife to have a baby? What’s that all about? Leaving a life decision about having another child to the general social media public is just bananas. Bananas.
One dude posted a pic saying that if he gets Likes, his girlfriend would have sex with him. Sex? That’s a little bit too personal to be asking for Likes on good ole facebook if you ask me.
And this guy just wants a bunny.
Recently, a digital media professor joked to his kids that if they got 1 Million Likes he’d buy them a puppy. Well, because pics of kids are cute, and people like picturing children playing with puppies (not in a creepy way, but in an ‘awe…that’s cute’, kind of way), they succeeded, and now the parents have to in fact, buy their kids a puppy. The story is getting all kinds of press. The lesson learned here is: be careful what you agree to when it comes to facebook Likes, as you may have to follow through. I hope that girl who promised sex isn’t freaking out right now. That said, even if that dude does get all his likes, she still doesn’t have to follow through. Thank god for the NO word. And although, I’m impressed, I hope this 1 Million Likes fad doesn’t go on for too long. Well, actually, I hope it lasts just long enough for me to get 1 Million Likes so Tuna will leave my new couch alone!
