If you ever think I'm in any way complaining about the internet, you should know that I think nothing is better. Not just with respect to finding absurdities but because without it, I am just a person with a tragically bad memory, desperately stringing lists of words together like an orangutan with a set of fridge word magnets.
The first result, blissfully, was what I was looking for. The search below is just as I entered it. This is the only way I could formulate what I wanted to say.
It's like I'm playing the dementia version of Jeopardy.
You can imagine that there would be a few good reasons for Facebook to disapprove of ads I create for my podcast's Facebook page.
But, when I was running the ads, at least once a week, Facebook came up with completely absurd ones.
Here's a perfect example.
This ad - about a guy who was brutally murdered, ostensibly for drinking another guy's beers - was determined to be promoting drinking to minors.
Hey, if anything, it discourages drinking!
Now this was likely not the exactly title they were going for - but it would make a way more interesting series.
I should send a picture of me plucking and eating a raw bird on the metro.

What do you do when you live next to people whose lifestyle you disapprove of - or when you want to buy a house but it just doesn't work out? Just go on with your life? You're adorable! The answer, as always, is: Commit a terrible crime!
