Facebook Friday #1



This is a new thing that I’m going to try in an effort to give Friday some pizzazz and readers a chance to interact more with the blog. While I’ve relied on crutches such as the Working Man’s Diary email account (workingmansdiary@gmail.com) and my Twitter (@WMsDiary), I’ve decided to attack from a different angle. Just blast out a desperate, “Got a blog for me” question on the creepbook and wait for the masses to hit me back with stuff for me to talk about. I got so many good, random, and ridiculous responses that I decided to use them all as a show of goodwill. In this case, the “masses” consisted of 7 people. We’ll hopefully see that number increase as time goes on. Here we go.

1) Cuteoverload.com: It is what it is. Made me happy and itchy at the same time. Plus this chick definitely has a rat chillin’ on her shoulder.

Someone should help her out. Thanks Spellgirl.

2) The idea of living in the past: If I wanted this blog to become a cry for help and have zero readers, I’d talk about my high school sports glory days the entire time. Some would say my number 1, 2, and 3 favorite subjects to talk about are myself, my achievements, and how cool I am. Fortunately for you guys, I want this blog to be successful and will refrain from digging too deep into that stuff. Long story short: I’m black, really fast, can jump pretty high, can’t swim, can’t shoot that well from beyond the 3 point arc, moderately decent tackler in football, and a surprising archer. That’s my athletic prowess in a nutshell. Thanks JD & JR

3) The Chinese Government Puts Homeless People in Cages: By far the most ridiculous submission I received. Can’t even confirm if it's true or not. No link was provided, but it’s too hilarious/sad not to dig into. Plus I think it’d be way funnier if it was a completely made up idea submitted just to see what I’d say about it. Because I have a LOT to say about it, but unfortunately that’s another blog altogether. If you’ve consistently read WMD, you’re aware of my irrational, but completely rational disdain of the homeless. They’re the closest thing to zombies we got and if “The Walking Dead” is any indication, zombies are kind of wack. If a zombie cock-blocked me from hooking up with girl in post-apocalyptic CVS, I’d be so pissed. Thanks BB

UPDATE: Here's the link.  This shit actually went down.

4) Mark Sanchez Playing In a Bathtub: Fuck you Pears.


5) Pedobear investigation: Saw this on some other blogs, but this is really weird from just about every level. I may be getting old, but I have no idea what Pedobear is. A pedophiliac bear? Frankly, I wouldn’t be that upset if I heard about a pedophile bear rolling around as opposed to a regular bear that kills people. Sure I’ll be traumatized and a tad sore, but I’ll be alive. Dude creates a hilariously creepy animated creature and the FBI’s after him? The times we live in. Thanks MD

6) Man arrested in lab claims to be from future: Props to BL for finding me the funniest thing I’ve read in awhile. I can’t do it justice because this is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever read, but I’ll try to summarize it as such: A dude ( in what I presume was a FILA jumpsuit) was found inside a large particle accelerator. He claimed that he went back in time to stop the distribution process of Mountain Dew to vending machines because the lab used the cans in their experiments. He also sabotaged the acceleration process by dropping a baguette into the machine months earlier. Then this quote came: “Mr Cole was taken to a secure mental health facility in Geneva but later disappeared from his cell. Police are baffled, but not that bothered.” What?!

Thanks everyone. Same time next week?

    I wasn't sure how to handle my life until I came across this blog. I have read it for over a year now, your words are inspiring. I cannot thank you enough for saving my life. I would like to make a donation of 3 dollars to you if you would accept. I know it may cost more in fees to send you that money, but you deserve it.


    Yours truly,

    Hopeless
