FB Hoaxes - I can't Help Myself

The latest round of people falling for a FB hoax has some great rebuttals...

Click the image to open in full size.

IT's OFFICIAL!! Facebook will begin stealing your undergarments at midnight tonight if you don't copy & paste this message in the next 37 seconds, forward it to everyone in your mailing list, print a hard copy for your grandmother & call your third grade teacher. This is real. I got the message first hand from Elvis who was having lunch with Bigfoot, while riding the Loch Ness monster. It was even on the inside back cover of every tabloid in the grocery store checkout line. Not only will Facebook start charging you tomorrow, they are also going to bill your credit card for the past 3 years of services. Luckily, each person who copies & pastes this status will receive a FREE unicorn in the mail tomorrow. However, if you don't repost this status, Facebook code has been set up to automatically set your computer on fire & harm an innocent bunny in the forest! It's all true, it was on the news! It's official! I WANT MY UNICORN!

You still think those are going to happen? Pah!

I'm in the queue for a much more useful personal jet pack which will be available "shortly", they say.....

I've heard of face-plant, but facebuck? Not familiar with this FB of which you speak.
