Epic FB Posts, Part 2 – Rody and the Chicken

March 10, 2012

As I mentioned in my last entry, Epic FB Posts, Part 1 – The Astroglide Post, two of my gauges of Facebook post quality are (a) the construction of the initial post (which must be based in truth) and (b) the resultant Comment thread – which can be measured in quality, quantity, and most importantly, the beverage-through-the-nose factor. It is a noteworthy event when a post exceeds expectations by all of the aforementioned measures. But to have two in one 24-hour period is a feat that will not soon be surpassed. And so I bring you Part 2, Rody and the Chicken – with 49 Comments (a record that holds to this day). For those of you who don’t know Rody, I need to give you some perspective – that’s her on the right.

Epic FB Posts, Part 1 – The AstroGlide Post

March 10, 2012

In my mind, the quality of a Facebook post rests in (a) the construction of the initial post (which must be based in truth) and (b) the resultant Comment thread – which can be measured in quality, quantity, and most importantly, the beverage-through-the-nose factor. It is a noteworthy event when a post exceeds expectations by all of the aforementioned measures. But to have two in one 24-hour period is a feat that will not soon be surpassed. And so I bring you Part 1, The Astroglide Post – with 36 Comments:

Hot Flashes – 7/20/09

July 24, 2009

This one took on a life of its own. I think it set a record for most comments (23) of any Status I’ve ever posted.


The Beer Bottle / Sneeze-Guard – 7/20/09

I don’t know what’s funnier about this one – the exchange between me and Cheri, or Peter’s comment, which I have to assume he posted in direct response to my original post without reading what came after.


FB threads that make me chuckle

July 24, 2009

Occasionally, there comes along a Facebook Status / Comment thread that is just worthy of keeping. If for no other reason than they make me chuckle every time I read them, and I don’t have any idea how long FB keeps them. So I’ve decided to add to my blog a category called “Facebook threads that make me chuckle”. As with most things in my life, I’ll probably get bored and stop posting, but who knows?

The simplest way to capture these is to screenshot the thread and post the graphic. It does raise some questions of privacy, since some of the commenters might not expect to see their words on a public blog, but I’ve rationalized that as follows:
1) All of my 300+ FB friends can see the comments, so it’s not that private anyway.
2) Because I’m posting a graphic, it’s not searchable by any search engines.
3) If you are quoted and don’t like it, just let me know and I’ll either pull the posting, redact your name, or edit out your comment completely (unless it’s crucial to the humor of the thread).
