My newest Facebook pet peeve: people (and in this case, I mean women) who use it like Pinterest. I don't want my entire feed to be 50 different links in a row to cupcake recipes or inspirational sayings, thanks. I don't think you can block without de-friending on the mobile app.

Look on eBay and see if someone is selling anything LIKE it. Then tell him how much they are asking. Maybe greed will motivate him.

And, ugh, yet another one of my SAHM friends decided she thinks she's a professional photographer. For the love of Pete, take a class if you're going to have a big fancy SLR camera.

At least this one has a cute kid. One of my other friends has "meh" looking kids and she captures them at their most awkward. And posts every...single...frame.

I have a friend - online only - I've known for 10 years or longer now. She's pregnant for the first time. And posts numerous posts each day about pregnancy and the baby. Including, "Going to Walmart to get more diapers!"

No one cares, Brenda. No one.

I would not do that unless they became a fire or health hazard.That one is not on the menu.

Finding what some place is buying them for might entice him

Sort of related... a friend said to me over the weekend: "My Facebook page isn't Walmart. Not everyone is welcome."

They are standard 4 drawer file cabinets, roughly 5 feet tall. They cannot be mailed or shipped easily. I do not want everyone and his scuzzy uncle traipsing up my driveway checking out teh security system.

He got them in there. He'll get them out... with a little/lotta help from his (ahem) friends

My two favorite quotes from the article:

I love that he used the word "huck."

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

Ha!

You should be like "Wow, weird. I was *just* wondering how you and your fetus were doing on your diaper supply! Thanks for the update! I'll sleep better tonight."

Not really. I'm not really an ass on Facebook, ever. But I think it. Oh, man, do I think it.

Speaking of diapers, once in awhile I watch Ridiculousness -- which is basically funny YouTube videos. Basically stupid people doing stupid things.

One prank that was a good one (but you need an infant and a friend/relative with a weak stomach to baby poop). Fill a diaper with chocolate pudding and pretend you are changing a real smelly, poopie diaper. The guy smeared it on his friend who can't take any kind of poop. Hilarious. And I usually don't like poop jokes.

The videos of new parents with hair trigger gag reflexes, changing their baby's first diaper are always funny, too.

Saw one of a guy who put peanut butter down the back of his shorts, went to a crowded area, put his hand down the back of his pants to scratch his butt, came out with PB on his hands and ate it. People reacted negatively.

Really? I wonder why.

That's funny. Gross but funny. The peanut butter was still on his butt.
