I Call Douche

There are times when I do things just to get to you guys, you know that right? The toot above is a great example of that.

I guess the new Facebook app for the ATP was released this week. All over my Facebook page was post after nerdgasm post proclaiming how awesome it was. Twitter too. It was everywhere. One of the posts said it had to be installed twice, so I thought I would pick on that and run with it.

Holy crap.

You ATP fanboys sure love your phone. More than a few of you got 17 different kinds of defensive about that particular toot. I found it comical to say the least. At least it provided my fingers something to make _the sound_ about today.

First off, it’s an application. For a telephone. That serves no other purpose than to help you access the time-suck that is known at Facebook. I have no doubt it is the raddest thing ever, but when I have to read that it is the raddest thing ever 50 times over, I just can’t sit by and watch.

So, I posted the above tweet.

One thing I already don’t like about it. You remember when you got your ATP, right? Every email was stamped ‘sent from my iphone’ until so many people called douche that you turned it off. Now the new FB app has that ‘feature’. Please let me be the first.

Douche! Turn it off please.

As always, thank you for your time.

  1. Sweet, I didn’t have to actually log in for this.

    I literally had no idea there’s a new Facebook app for the ATP until this post. I barely use the old Facebook app. I’ll check it out and tweet all my thoughts.

    Posted from my iPhone.

    Interesting. I can’t find where to change that.
