    That is SO creepy! I enjoyed your limerick. :P And…I’m thankful for your REAL Facebook friendship, and skill as a Lexulous opponent.

    Good heavens, but it is sad to think that there are people who feel they have to BUY friends!

    They don’t know what the Lone Ranger told my generation (big smile): The best way to have a friend is to be one.

    How simple.

    How sad.

    Creepy indeed!

    Do you think people really think these are actual friends??

    Funny limerick!

    Have a good day.

    Hmmmmm, I wonder . . . IS this for lonely individuals or for marketers who want their sales pitch to reach more potential customers. The Australian company is covering the truth by sounding more social than biz.

    Sorry, Mad! I neglected to mention how much I enjoy your unique gift! You make it seem so easy. Sigh…

    A piece of work – people are stranger and stranger. Friend envy cracks me up. I don’t have any, of course, and surely I can’t afford them until I pay off my medical bills. :) Your limericks are always fun and provocative…
