G is for Good God Your Kid is Ugly j/k LOL

You gotta love Facebook. OK, well you don't have to love it. But, you do have to be on it. If you aren't you should know that we make fun of you regularly because you are not one of the cool kids like us that sit at home on Friday and Saturday nights glued to our screens to see what other people are doing so we can live vicariously through them. Unfortunately, they are on Facebook too, so we send comments back and forth about what other people are doing and what we wish we were doing, you know if we weren't on Facebook.

While many people refer to Facebook as the Devil's Playground, and I have to be honest, I'm not sure that they are wrong, it also has a lot of good aspects. It gives you the ability to reunite with friends that you have lost touch with, reconnect with lost loves (Ha! Look at the butherface he ended up with) and keep in touch with family that you don't see. Although the family thing is a double edged sword.

"Hi Aunt Gertrude. I am really sorry that I wasn't able to come over Saturday and watch the DVD of Uncle Leonard's colonoscopy. I heard you made your famous liver and marshmallow green bean casserole. You know how sorry I am that I missed that! I just can't seem to shake this cold. Huh? What's that? Oh, you you saw the pictures on Facebook of me doing Jager shots and jello wrestling at Mardi Gras this weekend. Yes I do have a lot of beads. No, no, that wasn't my boyfriend. Just some guy I met. No I really was sick.That's what happens when you take Ambien and cold medicine... yeah, I'll come over right now. Yes I'll stop and pick up some marshmallows."

See double edged sword. Oh, and if you are wondering what a butherface is let me give you an example:


Wow, that girl has a rockin' body, but her face looks like a Pitbull's chew toy!




But-her-face
Facebook also gives you the opportunity to see photos of your friends and family and comment on them. Have you ever seen somebody's baby and thought wow, that is one ugly kid? Of course you can't (or shouldn't) say that so you write something like, "Wow, he looks just like his daddy."

Well, some people have found away to say exactly what they are thinking without incurring the wrath of the proud parents. They simply add what I refer to as a dis-qualifier. For example:


Looks just like his daddy!

Hope she's smart 'cause Good God is that kid ugly!  j/k

Well, at least now we know what it would have looked like if Mr.and Mrs. Frankenstein had a baby.LOL

That's your kid?!? It looks like something my cat coughed up! LOL j/k 

By simply adding "j/k" (just kidding) or LOL (Laugh out Loud) people are saying exactly what they are genuinely thinking, but are able to play it off as a joke. And it doesn't have to just be about ugly kids. Say your friend tells you to go online to look at her new, awful haircut that she loves. You have the ability to say the following:

Wow, not everyone can wear green hair. And what'd they cut it with? A weed-whacker? LOL j/k 


Cool Kid on FB
For the first time, you can be completely honest because if someone gets all pissy about it, all you have to say is I wrote j/k. What are you getting so mad about? It makes them feel like the jerk. You can't do that if you are face to face because then this person will know you weren't j/k and as a result may punch you so hard that they give you a but-her-face. Then I will be forced to make comments filled with j/k and LOLs under your picture about what a loser you are which I will have time to do because after all it is Friday night so we know I will be at home on Facebook so I don't miss out on everything that is going on with the other cool people. I just have to stop by Aunt Gertrude's for some marshmallow casserole first.

  1. Butherface! Ha! Yeah - it's amazing how adding three characters l-o-l, or j-/-k is somehow supposed to take the sting out of something evil posted about someone. It doesn't take the sting out at all - it makes it worse! Great post!

  2. Thank you, sir! See you are just being oversensitive. LOL and J/K DOES take the sting out of everything because afterwards you go to their wall and write something like, "Loved your comment. Very LOL, BTW I didn't know you and Joe broke up. I saw him kissing some red head today and was like well, I guess he finally traded up!" LOL j/k

  3. No wonder I get scowled at all the time. I forget to put the disclaimer at the end. Looks like that kid is hooked on meth! Seriously! No, not j/k. LOL

  4. I must be weird 'cause I kinda like the term "The Devil's Playground". It fits in well with my diabolical plan to take over the world from the comfort of my own living room. Mwahaha! LOL! j/k .... really!

    Thanks for starting my day with a good laugh! :)

    1. It is a great name for a book or a band. The Christian Youth Organization would like to welcome: The Devil's Playground.

      (BTW, you and I have the same evil laugh. Are you petting a white cat and sitting in a swivel chair too?)Maybe we should team up - we'll talk Friday night on FB)LOL j/k - maybe.

    2. OMG! Can you see me?? I am sitting in a swivel chair and petting a ... well ... not quite white cat, but she must look white from your side of the screen. ;P

  5. The thing I hate most about FB is how easy it is to forget you're not just talking to yourself. I have posted some ridiculous things about eating people, or watching midget porn. Next thing you know, mom responds. I need to deactivate my account, really.

    1. Hey Nellie! Don't deactivate. Just block your mom. Everyone should be able to freely express their love for midget porn and cannibalism.

  6. This post is absolutely hilarious j/k LOL.

    No, but really, awesome post. I completely agree with everything you wrote. Facebook is definitely the hub for passive aggressive statements. I also creeped on a girl who I was seeing a while ago and saw she got arrested in a prostitution ring. Awesome!

  7. I really only use FB for, um.... nevermind about that, because I'm gonna quit! I swear, I'm through with Farmville! I am!
    Tomorrow...

    I really don't use it to throw comments back-and-forth.

    Why aren't you my FB friend? Huh? Huh?
    That's what I thought!

    1. Because you've never sent me any cows on Farmville. LOL Do they send cows? I've never played. All though I do have a friend that actually paid money and bought credits or something so he could have a pimped out farm!

      Delete
    2. Um... I dont't know about the cows. You can send horses. I think.
      I don't spend money on the game. Maybe if, you know, they actually sent me something tangible.

  11. I sat on Facebook video chat with someone I hadn't talked to I twenty years last Friday might. I so counted that as a social outing. She was even drinking a beer...it counts right. Plus, we got to talk about what we'd seen other people post!

  12. I'm not one of the cool kids. I'm not on FB any more. People I don't like kept trying to be friends with me and I didn't want to hurt their feelings by saying no, so I left. Yeah, I know, I'm a wuss.

    1. People pleaser! LOL I know what you mean. I felt the same way for awhile. Then I decided if I don't like them, why should I care if they get upset. I even deleted people that were know drama starters because it was upsetting me when I went on. Now when I go on FB, which I kind of have to...all my friends live out of state and the people around hear, well, they aren't very nice if you didn't grow up with them.

      Anyway, now when I go on it is fun:) Don't worry, I'll still consider you a cool kid. You read me blog. That alone, makes you a cool kid;)

  13. The first time I ever heard the "butherface" term was on Showtime's series called "Shameless." It's hilarious, as is your whole post. I'm still laughing...

    1. Haha The first time I heard it was about 15 years ago. My brother-in-law and I were talking about a girl my friend was dating. He asked me how she was and while I was trying to come up with a tactful way to say "evil bitch". He said, "What does she have a butherface?" I asked what that was, then cracked up when he told me.

      I heard Shameless was really good, but I am lame and don't have any extra channels like that. So I blog.

      I'm glad you enjoyed my post. I hope you'll come back. I promise to keep you laughing;)
