TMI THURSDAY: THE ONE IN WHICH I ANSWER MY OWN QUESTION AND OUTDO MYSELF . . .
***Alright, folks, you know the rules. Join us all in humiliating the crap out of yourself every Thursday by sharing some completely tasteless, wholly unclassy, “how many readers can I estrange THIS week??” TMI story about your life. Or hell, about someone else’s!
The dodgy Facebook update.
We've all done it.
That's why we have websites like Facebook Fails or Failbooking. Precisely BECAUSE people have a habit of saying things they will regret online.
Man, I've done it MORE than once myself. Therefore can hardly judge.
So . . .this post is about a specific incident in my Facebook history. To be honest, I think it's more funny than anything else - that's why I'm sharing. But other people were maybe a bit grossed out. And for that, I apologise.
Last summer I was bored one day and as my status update I decided to ponder over what was the weirdest or strangest status update that anyone had seen on Facebook. (At this point, I didn't realise there was sites DEDICATED to such a thing). One of my Facebook friends gave me the following fuel . . .
Her friend had put a status update saying that someone in her shop had asked for a "ham and cheese penis".
Her friend worked in a sandwich shop. I established this. The person had actually been looking for a panini.
NOT a penis.
If that wasn't obvious.
Hmmm. A freudian slip if ever I heard one, eh?
I asked this girl if it had been a man or a woman who had asked for the ham and cheese penis.
(I have NO IDEA why I thought this was relevant.)
She replied she didn't know, but her friend had said that, whoever they were, they had walked out of the shop pretty fast after that.
And THAT'S when it happened...
"No wonder," I replied.
"Nobody likes a cheesy penis..."
"PAULA!" came the reply.
Okay, maybe I went too far. Maybe I ended up being the most outrageous comment on my own status update (oh, the irony). But it WAS a bit funny . . .
For more TMI Thursdays, go check out the lovely LiLu later on today . . . :)
PS If you're NOT my friend on Facebook and are worried you might be missing out, feel free to drop me an email and let me know your details. I'm nice like that. :)
