The Best American Facebook Groups

I'm a fan of The Best American Non-Required Reading series, edited by Dave Eggers. I just picked up 2008's copy:













The books always start out with funny lists, like "Best 2007 American Opening Lines" from novels, or "Best American New York Times Headlines." This year they have a list of "Best American Facebook Groups."

Guess what group is in it? YES! "I judge you when you use poor grammar" made the list! Other funny group names:
  • If This Group Reaches 150,000 Members, I Will Name My Son Batman
  • Gay Marriage Killed the Dinosaurs
  • I'm Saving Myself for Wild, Passionate, Awkward Honeymoon Sex
  • It Wasn't Awkward Until You Said "Well, This is Awkward." Now It's Awkward.
  • My Mom Makes Me Clean Up for My Cleaning Lady
  • Carol Never Wore Her Safety Goggles. Now She Doesn't Need Them.

Some people have too much time on their hands.
I'm sure I'm a member of many groups that are utterly weird and pointless and yet I felt compelled to join them.

This is a great article... and I couldn't agree more with the author.

I think this Facebook group has managed to transform poor grammar from an annoyance to an amusement for 300,000+ people. I view that as reverse progress.
