Overlord Broadcast #3

June 9, 2009

Dear Facebook Users,

Everyone knows what day of the week it is. Stop updating “What’s on your mind?” with “Uff.. Monday again :(“, “Friday! Yay.com!” and other such inanities.

It is bad enough that Monday has to happen every week. Nobody needs reminders for this. Especially if you start moaning about it on Sunday itself and ruin the day for those who are trying to ignore Monday for as long as they can. Ditto about Fridays. Yes, most of us are looking forward to the end of the week. But you don’t have to add to the agony of the wait with some variation of “Can’t wait for weekend to start”.

Seriously, just stop it already.

Yours truly,

    Addendum to Sire’s decree –

    Also, dont link to every quiz you take. No one really wants to know what FRIEND character/Actor/Cartoon character you are.

    Thank you.

    @dictator1: The decree has to be to ask people to stop taking quizzes altogether.

    If you take a quiz, FB will update your status feed. I tried a workaround once.. by changing application settings (after adding the application, but before taking the quiz) to not publish anything.. but when I took the quiz, it refused to display the results and sent me back to be quiz.

    So, yeah.. people, stop taking the damn quizzes.

    The fact that you know the names of obscure characters on FRIENDS, just proves that you are big ole softie and not fit to be a dictator. No matter how loudly you claim to be a Hindutva fascist, you are not one and you are just trying to misdirect everyone’s attention from the fact that you watch FRIENDS re-run everyday (all the while claiming to watch 24 which is just as irritating with predictable plots and repetitive story lines).

    Sire, you are right. People who have nothing to do generally take these quiz to feel good about themselves.

    @Gaurav: Dude.. you are the one who not only remembers a sidey character from a sitcom that ended a million years ago, but also the character’s annoying dialogue.. and you think *I* have nothing to do?

    PS: And if I really didn’t have work, I would be expected to spend more time on things like Facebook, not less (and so, would be bothered even more, not less). Frankly, I find the lack of basic logic skills in an aspiring dictator (such as yourself) disturbing. Being the Overlord, I have to worry about stuff like this.

    PPS: BTW, which flower were you? Daisy?

    Respected Ma’am,

    “you watch FRIENDS re-run everyday”

    That’s not true only every other day.


    Well as it happens I have watched the sitcom only last year, and I think there is nothing surprising about the fact that I remember the most annoying thing about it.

    And if you have time to waste I would think quizzes are the best way to do it, innit ?

    PPS. I am cauliflower

    @Gaurav: Didn’t know you’d watched it just last year. I envy your youth.
