What's in a name!

For those of you like me who have been using Facebook since its early days, I've probably noticed just how far it's come in 5+ years. One such feature that's really come a long way is Groups/Pages. Back in the day, people could only join your group is you went to the same college as them (because originally, Facebook was a college networking site and a way to find old friends from high school), which sucked because sometimes your friends that went to other colleges had cooler group names. Eventually  Facebook made everything "global" so anyone from any network could join a group. And then they added in Pages, where you could "become a fan" of everything from a band or author to a tv show or movie to well, pretty much anything!

Today when I logged in I saw a rather amusing Page that some of my friends had become fans of:
"Can I have a coke?" "Is Pepsi alright?" "Is Monopoly money alright?"

Over the past few months I've seen some of my friends joined some rather fun or interesting groups and pages and thought I'd share some of these clever or random titles.

Really Neat
For every person that joins this I will donate $0.01 to Haiti Relief
This person already made a $1,143.09 donation, however the group is still growing and is now at 172,386 members

If 1M people join, girlfriend will let me turn our house into a pirate ship
The dude did get over a million people after a few years of this group being around. He hasn't built it yet though because he's trying to find a way to fund it!

 When I Was Your Age...
When I was your age, Pluto was a planet
When I was your age I lost a tooth, not my virginity
When I was your age we had to blow on the video games to make them work
When I was your age The Rock was a wrestler, not a tooth fairy
When I was your age we used to rent movies from the video store
When I was your age we had Kenan and Kel, not Drake and Josh

Can this [insert noun] get more fans than [insert person]
Can this purple monster I made on paint get more fans than the president?
Can this pickle get more fans than Nickelback?
