The Day I Trolled Facebook

Why do I feel like I'll actually look like this in another thirty years?
This isn't the first time that political commentator Joe Scarborough was trending on Facebook - in fact, it's only been within the last couple of years or so that he was trending again, and a friend of mine got excited at first because he thought I was trending . . . not so. And I think a couple of other friends have brought this up other times he was trending.

What's interesting, too, is that someone once brought the point up to me in the past that the fact that there's such similarities in our names would probably produce quite a bit of confusion, and I do, actually, see the point - I can remember over ten years ago being confused about the whole controversy over who was Anna Nicole Smith's baby daddy, because one of them was supposedly Howard Stern. No, not that Howard Stern. Howard K. Stern. Or, whoever it was.

Still, Joe Scarborough does trend on Facebook from time to time, seems like just since I've been on Facebook, this is probably the fourth or so time that he has; this time, it's because Donald Trump is accusing him of having an affair with the co-host of his show, or some crap like that, I don't know, Trump rants and raves about so many insignificant things, who can keep track with all of it? But the fact is, Joe Scarborough was trending again, so this time, I decided to have a little fun with the situation, by posting this comment on any post that was trending the subject:

Imagine my surprise, though, that such a comment garnered so much attention from other people I don't even know . . . it was crazy! As you can see, that one comment above had gotten nearly 400 likes at the time I print-screened it, but now it's almost to 500 since last night! Not only that, but some of the replies I've gotten from people have been absolutely hilarious; here's some of the responses that I've particularly gotten a kick out of reading:
Am I on the lam? I don't know. You tell me.

Some of the replies I loved so much that I had to reply to some of them myself:
Yes, it is very comforting to know that I don't suck.

I really have to say this whole experience actually has been so much fun; the response from people had me laughing throughout the whole day. Hard to believe that just one comment ended up generating such a reaction from part of the public like this. Now, if I could only ever get this much response whenever I actually do something worthwhile on YouTube.

I'd like to thank Joe Scarborough for letting me be a temporary new-found celebrity for a day; I look forward to the next time he trends.
