Help me with Facebook

I'm at a brick wall here and need some ideas. I am SICK TO DEATH of reading the status updates on face book like.

"99% of you won't repost this, but if you like jelly on your toast, repost this!"

What's something I can post on my status to make fun of these idiots? I can't think of anything mean\funny enough.

Re: Help me with Facebook

I saw one that a bunch of my friends put up a few weeks ago making fun of all those "awareness" updates.

Please put this on your status if you know or or are related to someone who is an idiot. Idiots affect the lives of many. There is still no known cure for stupidity, but we can raise awareness ... 93% won't Copy and Paste this, many because they're too stupid to know how to copy and paste. Will YOU make this your status for at least one hour??

Re: Help me with Facebook

Last night one of my friends was using his status updates as a commentary on the Golden Globes. My newsfeed read like a live comment thread here. I just hid his feed. Really, that's all you need to do to take care of those people....Block them for a bit, then check on them a week or so later.

I would argue that if you can't come up with a way to insult them on your own that you don't deserve to be doing so.

Oh, well, I did the idiots post myself...Hmmm...I still say hide them from you feed while @ the same time making fun of them. That way,they'll have to comment on your status.

Alternatively, you could create one of those pages like this:

Watching People's Lives Fall Apart...

Just dedicate yours to the "Copy this" people.

It came from a note that circulated about a year ago. (It comes back from the undead every few months.) It has something to do with your birthday, favorite color, etc. You plug it in like a formula. There's a key somewhere, but I'm too lazy to google it.
