Proper Facebook Etiquette

#1999 Baboon bottom

Monday 27th July, 2009

Dear Mariann,
I do enjoy your blog, but questions that have been weighing heavily on my mind and caused all manner or rows in the pub recently; do you really exist and where do you get your expertise from?

Of course I exist. In the same way that you and your friends down the pub exist; composed of various atoms and particles vibrating at a rate that allows one both to be able to pick up a G&T and sit in close proximity to answer your mobile phone.

Do You think that I am revealed to be some randomised baboon commissioned to type, type, type whilst spoon-fed mashed banana and shaking my bottom at the monitor?

As for expertise, one has an (unhealthy) obsession with a social media consumed society – is this not enough? Other lessons that may be employed as properfacebooketiquette are those that my mother (if I had had one) should have taught me (‘Be wary of sociopaths and men who do not wear socks’), an astute mind sharpened by the rigours of spending (too long) time on Facebook, and an enthusiasm that derives from mental mastery-whilst avoiding the push of other raging consciousness-raising movements – such as those composed from ‘holisitc’, ‘self-love’ , ‘affirmation’ and ‘freethinking’.

You may also have seen my face around the web. Google it. And I am often to be found out and about with a mojito in hand and a Patrick Stewart styled gentleman close by.

In summary I fail to see the usefulness of your dilemma for properfacebooketiquette, however, and choose instead to pick fleas off myself for the rest of the day.
