"I blame Twitter/Facebook/Myspace/Everyone bc I'm dumb!!"..........The Honorable Moron Award

A friend of mine posted this article and I couldn't stop laughing about this tomfoolery. Nor can I stop commenting on it:
Twitter gets you fired in 140 characters or less
Sidenote: I already expressed previously in My $0.02 how hesitant I am about Twitter. It was only a matter of time before the bungling buffoons would come tumbling in.
Question,................. if you were on an Internet networking site.........and you knew everyone online can read whatever you write.......and you're page is not set to private, so that includes ppl who aren't even your friend.........does this sound like an intelligent thing to post on you page......for the entire World Wide Web to read?
Sidenote: for our less tech savvy readers, "world wide web" is what "www" in your website url stand for! Stick around and someday we'll reveal what url means, http and the difference btwn http and https!!! :).....anyways....onto the quote....
"Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.”
Now that's still not the funny part. It gets better. He gets a message from someone who works at Cisco and apparently it was an "open response." Hope that means something to you twitter ppl or rather....twitter-ers. My naive guess is that it's open for everyone to see:

"Who is the hiring manager. I’m sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web."

How syntactically lethal? I just love the simplistic, yet sinister latency of that phrase! Just laced with an innocent candy coating of cynicism, with a creamy gooey evil nougat filling. The guy who responded should teach a class. I'd sign up for it.
Sidenote: Can't you just hear a mini Homer Simpson going off in his head saying "D'OH!!!"
It's not Twitter's fault ppl are idiots. Especially in this economy when thousands of fully qualified ppl are getting laid off for no wrong doing of their own and can't find work to save their life, you're dumbass is complaining about a commute when you know you'll be getting a "fatty check?" You tit! I have a friend that commutes from Brooklyn to Long Island 90 minutes both ways (sometimes 2 hours) and has been doing so for 6 yrs! Do what you gotta do damnit!!

Why ppl publicly post where they place work online is beyond me personally (as I've stated before), why ppl friend co-workers and bosses is a complete alien concept to me, but I can't even begin to comprehend why the hell someone would curse out or insult their place of work....ON A PUBLIC NETWORKING WEBSITE WHERE ANYONE CAN SEE?

Even before twitter, most companies had a Google search service that tracks every news article or blog that mentions the company name, let alone a technology company. They mostly do this to post in the company intranet and keep track of its media/press coverage. Reminds me of the guy who worked for the Eagles who got fired when he cursed them out on a facebook status.

So I guess in the new employee manuals, by Friday COB (close of business), there should be an addenda that specifies "don't curse out the hand that feeds you on public domains," bc common sense is not only not common, it's flat out a myth. And if it existed, its chillin with a stegosaurus, woolly mammoth, and dodo bird right about now...........[sigh]
Sidenote: Are Bald Head Eagles extinct? Did anyone see that Inauguration Concert for Obama (YAAAAY I WAS THERE) when they brought out the eagle? Gotta love the irony of what our nations symbol is......... the strongest, free-est bird with the widest wingspan..................who's bound by the leg and can't fly anywhere bc it's shackled to its master.....WOW...............MESSAGE!!!!!!!

Sidernote: If you haven't seen "Don't be a Menace to South Central While Drinking your Juice in the hood," its one of the Wayans Brothers finer works.
Here's a compilation to better understand the context. It spoofs all the hood movies of the early 90's namely the sentimental moments and allegorical themes. Hence, the mail man blatantly pointing out every time there's a MESSAGE!!

Yea. This is just numbskullery. I've read FB status updates from grown-behind,"educated" people that had me with the "derrr" face.

Why on earth are you letting the entire internet community know that you got so sh*tfaced last weekend that you peed behind a parked car? Or that you HATE men and will be dabbling in lesbianism in the near future, or or.....the list of cruddery goes on...

I don't post anything on my fb page that i wouldn't feel comfy with my boss or colleagues reading/viewing.

By the way, I loathe the fact that folks can "tag" you in pictures on fb w/out your permission. When FB got savvy and included a feature to block folks from viewing tagged pics of you, i felt slightly better...only slightly.
