BEFORE FACEBOOK WAS the data stealing entity that it was, it was a website used for making pages where you could make a joke in the title. Ah it was a simpler time wasn’t it?
The trends went from making many, many jokes about King of Leon’s ‘Sex On Fire’ to the odd turban trend that was never really fully explained and definitely racist in some way or another.
Because humans in general are lazy creatures, many of us haven’t unliked many of these pages so I decided to go back through my own Facebook likes to see what I could find.
Nothing like some sectarianism to get us going. I think we most Irish people are in trouble, we tend to blame the Protestants but maybe we should get better at hiding it.
Before there was ghosting and can’t even get a text back, there was the hell of the bread and nobody liking the heel of the bread.
You should never underestimate how much Mr Worldwide has given to Irish education. For a nation who struggles with a second language, learning to count to 4 is a big deal.
Remember that time when we were all just obsessed with goats? What that about?
No seriously. What was that about? Do goats float? Why did I care so much about their buoyancy?
A time before we had invented the word ‘hipster’. A more innocent and less annoying time I feel.
I’m putting these together as I find it strange that I was obsessed with the ride and the sesh when I was 14 and unable to do either of those things. Can’t believe I lived vicariously through the internet.
While the sentiment is indeed correct, it is again odd that I was obsessed with the sesh at such a tender age.
I’d like to think we were all fans of bad puns.
I feel like this is a campaign that we can all still get behind. Anyone for an Uplift petition?
This is probably still the most accurate one.
