Lightening Up: Groups to Peruse While Waiting in Line for Cheap(er) Stuff

Posted By Krista Lane On Nov 23, 2007 @ 12:06 pm In The Specials | Comments Disabled

If Black Friday is anything like the “Halo 3″ release [1] in September, we imagine the caffeinated cheapskates among you will have been clamoring for coupons and free pumpkin pie [2] since last night or at least pre-dawn hours this morning.Still, for those of you about to buy an Internet gadget [3] or if you already own one that you’re fiddling with as you tap your feet to the cashier who price-checks every item that the old lady seven people ahead keeps second-guessing, we are here to entertain. Or, rather, Facebook is.To get you back in the mood for the fall semester’s home stretch, here are some groups we found (between pumpkin pie servings and non-alcoholic hot cocoa [4]) with which you may or may not identify:* The CAL A+ Club [5], an elusive and exclusive group with unsurprisingly few members.* I Have Failed a Class at the University of California [6]. Surprisingly few members here, but perhaps that has more to do with what people are willing to admit.* I acknowledge the 100 fold difference between .002 dollars and .002 cents [7]. So do we, even if Verizon doesn’t [8].That said, we’ve got some leftovers to eat and papers to write. And, you know, overprivileged Californians [9] to buy a diet soda for.“Lightening Up” is a Clog special devoted to link-stacking finding Facebook groups of interest. And by interest, we mean anything that seems amusing to us at the time. Since there are millions upon millions of Facebook groups which surely must amuse someone, this special will NEVER DIE.If the thought of school-related [10] Facebook groups is too much to bear, feel free to go back to shopping or supporting Stephen Colbert [11] or celebrity-bashing [12]. It’s not like you’d be caught dead seeking obscurity [13].
