Power to the people/Facebook group… erm, we think not

Well if you've set up a Facebook group, you MUST be serious...What is it with Facebook groups? Or more to the point what is it with people who set up, join and smugly self-promote Facebook groups? Give yourself a pat on the back, you joined the ‘Let’s find Maddie’, ‘RIP Baby P’, ‘I hope Josef Fritzel rots in jail’ and ‘If 100,000,000 members join this group I will call my newborn child Cunty Fuck Face’ group. Well done. That says so much about what a passionate, upstanding citizen you are. Well, at least the last one does.

‘Why the rantery?’ you ask. Well, we hear a group has been set up in retaliation to idiot Pope’s comments last week re. condoms and Aids, andcetera. OK, we get it. He is a cunt who said cunty things, but how is setting up a Facebook group going to change that? Is it that he’ll be browsing his Facebook profile, poking people and laughing at how lardy old school mates have got, and suddenly come across the group in question and be hit with a eureka moment, ‘Oh! People are so angry about that condom debacle they’ve set up a Facebook group in protest. Shucks (because the Pope says ‘shucks’) they MUST be serious. I will revoke my comments and *pops champagne* here’s to safe sex, abortion, gayness and bumming!’

The group has nearly 40,000 members – and by members we do mean penises – who should all be posting a condom to the Pope on Friday. Ooh, Italy’s postmen are going to have a fun, not to mention safe, weekend.

Maybe we’re just missing the point or maybe it’s our carb-comedown, but there’s just something so utterly passive about this ‘activism’, it seems a little bit grand-ma’s diluted squash. Thoughts plural?

  2. Oh my oh my, me-me-me. But I couldn’t agree more. Well I could, but I’m coming down from a particularly heavy curry binge last night…

  3. My personal favourite is the ‘I hate Facebook’ group. Well fuck off then.

  5. Wery true. All you do is tell your friends how right on you are, but it doesn’t go any further than that. Now if Durex were to get in on it as a marketing tool (tee-hee) that would be another story. But they won’t. Cos they’re chicken.

  6. I agree, but you’ve got to admit there is definitely a palce in the world for the ‘Get off your fat ass, Emma Chawner and your fat family, and get a job’. Shame Facebook deleted it.
