Muslims on Facebook

You know, I didn’t want to join Facebook when it first made its rounds.  It wasn’t until virtually everybody else I knew was on it that I realized how handy it was.  Keep track of your friends, classmates and family – find people or information about people when you need to, long lost friends, etc. etc.

But at some point, maybe when it started reaching out to non-college students, it started having some shady MySpace qualities.  Ignoring the obnoxious 999 million different applications that clog up people’s profiles now, I’m regularly “friended” by weirdos for no particular reason at all.

I guess I shouldn’t be shocked that some of these weirdos are muslims.   Still, somehow they’re more amusing than the others.   So I thought I’d share a couple.

Most recently, a guy wants to be my friend whose profile consists only of quotes from the Qur’aan.  No pictures or groups, only a profile and 2 people commenting on his wall: himself and “Muslims Canadians (no network).”  Here’s an excerpt from his profile:



ooo, and he’s single, born January 1, 1960.  I gotta say no to the guy, but what a catch for the rest of you ladies 😉

And now onto the finalists for random messages (in addition to friend requests).   And you know I’m a sucker for terrible english:


 Me:   you know it’s common curtosey to at least send someone a message before you try to friend them – that way I know you’re not another slimy guy trying to get in my “facebook pants”
