It's Better Than Candy Crush Invites

I seriously cannot understand these recent games on Facebook where you punish people for responding to your posts. Seriously, have these people never studied applied psychology?!
OPERANT CONDITIONING, PEOPLE!

In case you have blissfully missed it, there are "games" going around on facebook where someone says something freaky, and then when people comment (and sometimes even LIKE it) the original poster messages them and tells them they were tricked and now have to trick other people. I have refused every one of them like the party pooper I am.

When I post weird, or funny, or outrageous things on social media, it is because I WANT PEOPLE TO INTERACT WITH ME. It makes no sense to train people to avoid interacting with you, because every time they do, you try to force them to make a post about how they managed to get out of a ticket by buying used sex toys and having a sex change operation, while screaming 10 inches and solving a riddle as a giraffe.


But I promise, if I say something freaky, it is because I am freaky... I am totally not trying to trick you.


And you'll see I used my facebook friends to make this image (click to biggify if you can't see it). Several of them answered me having missed my post telling them it was coming. I love my funny friends.

  1. Ha! Awesome. I have not seen these "games" but they sound bad. Real bad.

  2. I've been caught in a couple of those, but I was a party pooper too. Mainly because I'm friends with my grandma on FB!

  3. I'm a party pooper too! I also won't do any of the things that are supposed to raise awareness for whatever by announcing what color my bra is or where I put my purse and then not telling anyone what I'm talking about. Because that's not really how awareness works, and apparently I'm a jerk or something.
