My uncle joined facebook. He was talking about the strange quirks of facebook while at Rafferty's for brunch on Sunday.

He started with the silliness of the status. He questioned its worth and then started making fun of it.

"I'm going to write, 'John had a bloody Mary and a sandwich today' or 'John recommends the pickled garlic you can buy at Cracker Barrel.'"

But the biggest confusion, he said, was when a woman he had known in high school friended him.

"So this girl I knew in high school wants to be my friend. I haven't talked to the woman in 40 years! I was like, I wanted to be your friend when we were in study hall together, and you wouldn't look at me then!"

Sounds like he's pretty much got the ol' f-book figured out!

I don't know how old your uncle is, but I am in my 40's and Facebook has become the latest trend in my age group.
I am "friends" with people I dont even remember knowing.
Oh well. We're just one big happy land of misfit toys.
