facebook groups are rad

Jen at Mahalo Fashion had the fantastic idea of organizing a blogging awards sort of thing! It's loads of fun, and I'm not telling you who I voted for (I e-mailed my vote in yesterday) but some people on my sidebar definitely got props from me! More information at: http://mahalofashion.com/Awards.html

One of my favorite things about Facebook.com is the groups. As of now, I have joined 177 groups, and I'm very specific about how good the names are (I even joined a group called "No, I will not join your Facebook group unless it has a catchy name") So lo and behold, in no real order, my ten favorite Facebook groups:
I want to be Peter Pan when I grow up...wait, shit!
I'm a hardcore Peter Pan fan, and so I went on the prowl for a group that could express my love. This one's title made me laugh out loud, and I couldn't resist joining!

Fuck high school, I wanna be a three-toed sloth
I feel a certain kinship with the three-toed sloth, and I feel convinced that if I was at Hogwarts (shut up, you know you think about it too), my Patronus would be one.
I Fucking Hate When Girls Do That Stupid Lip Thing and Peace Sign in Pics
Okay, we've all been guilty of this one, but I've made a solemn oath never to do it again, except in a very humorous incident of satire.

Your life will NEVER be as hard as Tyra Banks'!
I have to give props to Danielle from Dilemma Knows Fashion (and my own Facebook buddy) for this one. When I saw she joined, I was curious, and as soon as I read the description, knew this was the kind of ANTM Facebook group for me! I love the person that commented: Every time I'm feeling down and out I always stop and say to myself, "Hey things could be worse, you could be in Tyra Bank's shoes right now." That usually pulls me out of what ever slump I'm in.
Michael Jackson: so what he's crazy? u kno he STILL da bomb yo!
I'm a recovering Michael Jackson addict, and so I knew I had to join an MJ group. The problem was, I needed on that could properly express my feelings for him. Most were either terribly hateful or overly praising....until I found this one. It really sums it all up for me...and the "hookd on foniks" title was the icing on the cake.
Citizens against the Simpson War Machine's Assault on Music
Who isn't, really?

Alex turner,brain of a surgeon lyrics of a god
Like the Michael Jackson one, this one's appeal lies in its semi-nonsensical title. I keep hoping that its actually "lyrics of a surgeon, brain of a god"....wouldn't that be more fun?

I'd fuck Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at the same time
Again, who wouldn't, really?

Disney Gave Me Unrealistic Expectations About Love
Um, yeah, I'd throw "Archie comics" in there too. Though maybe you have to be a stunningly beautiful princess for the "Disney effect" to work.
I'm not sure if the double-t on "hotts" is intentional, designed to add a certain flair, but who can argue that David Bowie is an extremely sexy alien?

Allure said...

My favourite: Disney gave me unrealistic expectations about love. Hilarious, and very true LOL

Francisca said...

Brilliant! Well, obviously you know the one that I join in...xD Can I add you to my facebook ?

Belle said...

I love facebook groups. My favorite is: Arn't We Hooked On Phonics!!!!! There is just something about it, I mean its about Jess from gilmore girls and Aren't is spelt wrong its amazing and ironic. My second would be: "I just got back from my ballet recital!" "Oh, I thought you were a whore."

Charming Heart said...

My favorite facebook groups are the ones that are made for inside jokes from friends, that you find really hilarious, but no one else gets it.

labelllefille said...

Haha this post amused me. I especially liked the Peter Pan and ANTM ones.

Nicola's Vintage Boutique said...

I think the group that speaks to me most is "Disney's Robin Hood...Yea he's a fox but he's hot!"
...kind of similar to your Peter Pan one

Ive never joined it because I don't join groups like that for some reason, but I admire it from afar. The other members also know its the voice!

Jill said...

That ANTM group just about made my day.

Stephanie said...

"i find it ironic that facebook has Amish as a choice for religion"


"for the love of marc jacobs"
"dr. mcdreamy can operate one me any day..."

"i am going to marry a very rich, very sexy, british man"

Heather said...
