The Leak (Limerick)

Updated on July 30, 2012
Source

Wait! You are not dating that guy Fred

Uh Oh I for sure have been mislead

Please do no be too mad

For I leaked it, so sad

Put it on Facebook and all have read

Think Before You Post!

This is a funny look at what happens every day on Facebook. If you were to be honest with yourself and the world(yes, the whole world is watching you), you would admit that sometime or another you have posted something on Facebook that was misleading. Maybe you have had the wrong information. Perhaps you misunderstood someone and figured you would irrationally head over to Facebook and post what you have heard.

You must be careful! Don't post a status that you are unsure about! Would you want these following words said to you as you are being handcuffed and led to Facebook Jail?

  • You had the right to not open up Facebook!.
  • Anything you have posted can and will be held against you in the Facebook court of law.
  • You have the right to a Facebook friend, but just one.
  • If you cannot afford a friend, one will be provided for you.
  • Do you understand these Facebook rights I have just read to you?

Let's be cautious of what we are posting on Facebook! We should be sure we have the correct information before logging into our Facebook Accounts. The Facebook Police are everywhere, and Facebook Jail is not like other jails. It is a very creepy place and home to some of the biggest and baddest Facebook misusers out there!

If you don't want to be associated with these creepy Facebook Misusers, then start thinking before you post!

      Josh,

      The look on the lady's face is priceless... what a perfect picture!

      Oh wow, here comes the Mom in me... I love everyone having fun on FB, even HP... but I can tell when someone "ain't quite right" in their comment/ sharing... sooooooo, perhaps another rule:

      "Don't drink and post!?" To me, can be as internally damaging as the physical dangers of drinking and driving...

      Your limerick is tops and so are you! UP & all those buttons!

      The majority of people that post things on Facebook are misled. It's quite annoying because if they put in even 15 minutes of some research then it would make all the difference. Thanks for voicing this issue!

      I like to go for the shock value...does that make me a facebook shock jock wannabe? :) But you are right, I'm probably very guilty of putting something in my status that I shouldn't have. :) Now I'll have to start thinking about my status before I hit that evil "POST" button. :)

      I once held someone with very high esteem until he posted some comments and feeds on Facebook that clearly sounded the opposite. It is true, we get judged by the world on what we post on social media. Voted up.

    • GoForTheJuggler profile image

      Joshua Patrick 5 years ago from Texas

      This made me think of the Ashton Kutcher Twitter incident - even celebrities (or should I say, especially celebrities) are just as guilty as the rest of us when it comes to sharing and saying things we should probably keep to ourselves. =P

      Mike Pugh 5 years ago from New York City

      LOL, yup facebook is a wild and zany place to set sail off into and start posting away. I love it though, I just don't like reading into things to much there, that's all for me when it comes to FB.

      I try to share less of my own personal info as well, and as you said, we all must be careful of what we post there, because the whole world is watching. I like this cool hub here, nice Limerick Josh.

      Voted up! and shared

      I've read so many status updates that made me say out loud "You really didn't just share that!" Yet, they did. Uh oh to them!

      I'm still sticking to my personal role of 'if I have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.' I've been quiet lately. Haha!

      Great limerick! As always!

      Ok, I am ready to be arrested in the Facebook court of law, Joshua Sir! Yes, we've all been guilty of posting something we shouldn't on Facebook, and it gives the wrong idea. Will share this.
