Today, quite by accident, I performed a little social experiment.
In the last week or so, I have posted and shared a few what I consider interesting links on my Facebook page.
These are some of them;
All very interesting and informative reads that, in my opinion, everyone should read. I had three “likes” and two comments for all of those articles.
Today I was having a rare read of my Facebook feed when I came across this doozy from an old friend I shall call Spud – because that’s what we called him at Tocal.
No toilet paper. goodbye socks !!
Write a comment…Of course I “like”ed it! It sounded very Spud-like!It was a trick. Within seconds I received this via chat….You’re in trouble! Lol! A friend did this to me, its a game. You shouldnt have liked or commented on my status. Choose one of the following:
1. Damn diarrohea!
2. Just used my boobs to get out of a speeding ticket.
3. Anyone got tampons? Im desperate.
4. How do you get rid of foot fungus?
5. Why is it no one is around5. Why is it no one is around when Im horny?
6. No toilet paper. Goodbye socks!!
7. Is it too early for a whiskey?
8. What a day, can’t wait till my husband gets home!
9. I just feel like running naked in the garden.
10. Does liver and peanut butter make a good sandwich filling?
Dont explain on the status, just send this message. Your turn!I looked at the list for a while and decided on 2.Just used my boobs to get out of a speeding ticket….It was the most plausible post there. 9 was tempting and had it been raining I would probably have put that one on.As I write this, 17 people have clicked “like” and nine have commented.I haven’t shared the fact I blog with my Facebook world – too many of them know hubby and I’m not ready for him to know. But I am tempted!Maybe this is what we need to do to promote farming – make it low and degrading. I doubt it.We Australian farmers have a lot to be proud of. We are the cleanest food producers in the world. We are at the forefront of animal welfare standards. We feed and clothe everyone in Australia and millions of people world wide.Why is it then I am taken more seriously when I post something about my boobs and nobody listens when I share the stories of our lives?This is another reason I haven’t bothered sharing my inner most secrets with Facebook.But it does beg the question – if my boobs and those of others are so damn interesting, why are more people not interested in what’s happening in the dairy industry?
