Hopefully you won’t be joining the global “panic carrot buying” craze. Nah? I didn't think so.
91 000 Facebook users have signed up to a Facebook group called "On May 15, 2008, everybody needs to go out and panic buy carrots". Ok if they were to go by me nothing wouldn’t happen at all. I sign up for groups with funny names well because of the funny names. Like on a German social networking site. I have been known to have joined fun groups merely because the names tickled my fancy. Wouldn't you want to belong to a group called “Fat kids are more difficult to kidnap” , “Magic ponies stink from the ass too”, “We’re resocializing Nerds” and “Yes, I really do need all my purses”. Okay so I actually do need all my purses and I like to resocialize Nerds because I consider myself to be one. It does not mean however that I am going to kidnap a fat kid or a skinny one for that matter nor would I smell a magic pony’s ass. If there actually were magic ponies.
So let’s hope that the majority of people who have joined the group will not buy into the madness and run out at 2pm to buy as many carrots as they can. It would be a waste. And what would you do with all those carrots anyway?
Anyway, the funny thing is that the opposing group “Don't add to world hunger, don't panic-buy carrots" has attracted just 29 members *LOL*. I really don’t give a darn thing if there is a carrot shortage for a day or two. Unless there is carrots in red wine or my pasta. Then things are going to get ugly.
