TREND ALERT: "Wrinkly-Facebook"
Monday, August 4, 2008

Facebook is filling up fast with the over-40 crowd. I'm seeing more and more middle-agers asking me to be their facebook friends.

Which means one thing: Soon the young folks will flee in defiance. And to where? And then we'll be left in the old neighborhood, wondering where we need to go to be cool and in touch.

I have both a Facebook and Myspace page. I prefer Facebook. It seems to attract smarter, more educated people. Honestly, the invites I get on myspace tend to be mainly from single moms trolling the internet ... and the guys seem to really like that picture of me in my toolbelt. When I log onto facebook I feel like I'm at a singles' bar. 'Can't even print the things that have been said to me.

Oh, what the hell ... I've never censored myself before. Why start now?
One woman said this: "You look like you would make good father and lover so maybe we can get together and I will show you how I make men happy. You will like my ****."
And one guy: "I'm interested in what's beneath the tool belt, sir. I'm a bi-curious male looking to get my *** plowed. Can you help me with that?"

I mean, even if I was interested in either, would I dare respond to someone through an anonymous email correspondence? Would you? Isn't that how people end up being shot or poisoned and cut up and stored in Mason jars under someone's house?

... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

AD-Vice: Check out the fun, fast poetry at newsandverse.com. Kevin Pierce writes a very witty four-line poem every day based on a newspaper headline/event. Here's a taste;

NEWSWIRE--Starbucks reported its first-ever quarterly loss after announcing it would eliminate 1,000 support jobs and close more than 600 stores.

From coffee rapture, Starbucks has released us
(By shutting stores and laying off baristas).
The count of closing shops, obscene and plenty,
Will leave us now with only spleens to venti.

Yep, nothing like parental units (or similar) on a web site to make the kids run for their lives.

newsandverse.......a-HA ! :-D
Kevin had mentioned this to me recently, but I'm finally reading a sample here first. Very cool!

Such witty fellows, you two.

My 18-year old daughter told me, "Get a Facebook, MySpace is for predators." Apparently she was right.
