Facebook is giving us new meanings to all simple english words. You know how a facebook friend is not necessarily a "Friend", a facebook poke is doesn't involve anything sharp or pointy or poky, etc.
One thing I have yet to understand is this "likes" business. Somebody has some thought, pithy saying, self-absorbed fact, slogan or joke, and a bunch of others go about "liking" it. I do not understand what it is they are liking here.
"Sunita made awesome batata wadas"
Eeena, Meena, Deeka and 3 others like this (thumbs up sign).
OK, so do they like batawadas, sunita, or the fact that sunita made the batata wadas?
"Jeff supports Obama's Health Care reforms"
Tom Dick and Harry like this. Again, what is it they like?
It gets more complicated when
Mala is missing Mumbai during Diwali
and Sonu and Pinky like this.
You like that which Mala is missing, or the fact that Mala is missing something?
I've even seen (I kid you not)
Natalie: "R.I.P. dear friend Victor. you will be missed"
And Joe and Moe like that!
