When a Minneapolis man got a splinter recently, he immediately posted it on Facebook seeking sympathy. “The response was disappointing,” said the man, “This was the most interesting thing that had happened to me since that time I found two Frosted Flakes fused together.”
Friends were less than sympathetic. “You SUCK” posted an individual identified by Facebook as the man’s mother. Undaunted, the anonymous individual intends to continue posting status updates. “I bit my lip at lunch,” he said, “but I TWEETED that one!” As of press time neither of the man’s Twitter followers had responded.
