Facebook game asks you to post stupid status updates

Post stupid status updates on your Facebook page? How could you be tricked into doing that? It happens all the time and people fall for it.

Another version of this misanthropic Facebook "game" is going around, designed to get you to post stupid statements on your page. Every couple of months, there seems to be yet another iteration of this.

You're supposed to pick one of the statements below and post it as your status update:

1. Damned diarrhea.

2. Just used my boobs to get out of a speeding ticket.

3. Any one got a tampon? I'm desperate.

4. How do I get rid of foot fungus?

5. Why is no one around when I'm horny?

6. No toilet paper, good bye socks.

Further instructions: "Post with no explanation.Please be a good sport."

It should say "Please be an ignorant chump."

There is no point to playing this "secret game" other than causing alarm among your friends and causing the general credibility of Facebook content to decline.

If you see one of these status updates, and you click Like or post a comment, you will be pulled into the game. 

Do NOT go along with this "game". Resist it. Refuse to participate.

Posting phony alarming and self-deprecating status updates is not "funny" or a "joke" -- it will make people hesitate to trust all your status update statements, since they'll have to decide if a specific update is serious and for real, or just another gag update.
