Keith Fenimore takes a lightning look at what’s been trending this week in social media. [Nov 24 – Nov 30]
The Onion, king of fake news and satire, turned heads internationally by naming the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un the “2012 Sexiest Man Alive.” Not realizing it was a complete farce, the North Korean press picked up the story and circulated it across the country.
I can’t wait to see North Korea’s face when Kim Jong-un wins Maxim’s 2013 Hometown Hottie contest! I didn’t take him for a Brazilian wax type of dictator. Although we do know that he likes unicorns, so who knows?
To promote the release of The Amazing Spider-Man on Blu-ray and DVD, Sony Pictures commissioned an amazing athlete shrouded in a Spidey colored hoodie and sweats to travel around the city of London and perform jaw dropping and death-defying parkour stunts.
Not to be outdone, in support of the release of The Hobbit, Warner Bros. plans to hire a really short hairy guy to walk around very slowly with a wooden stick, looking for things.
The Charlie Sheen-less set of Two and a Half Men continues to be the subject of controversy, after the teenage star of the CBS sitcom, Angus T. Jones, made a plea in the press for people to stop watching the show. He referred to it as “bad news” and “filth.”
I can script where this is going. This kid will get canned from the show, disappear for years and resurface as the co-owner of a bed and breakfast somewhere outside of Sacramento California with his partners, Screech from Saved By The Bell and Jonathan Taylor Thomas from Home Improvement.
Facebook is not into people posting nudity and will remove a post if nudity is detected. Such is the case with a woman who posted a picture of herself in the tub. At first glance it appears that her breasts were exposed, but a closer look behind the bubbles and you can clearly see there is no nudity or indecent exposure, just a soapy, wet elbow.
I can't tell you how many times I mistook elbows for breasts! On second thought, there’s no reason why I can’t tell you. It’s eleven.
A social media-obsessed couple who just welcomed their newborn into the world wasn’t interested in taking the traditional route when naming their baby. Last Saturday at 10:00 p.m., they happily announced the arrival of their baby girl… Hashtag.
I personally can't believe those parents would be so insensitive and reckless as to name their child Hashtag. Imagine how mean the kids are going to be to her at school. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go see why my son, Atari2600, has locked himself in his room again.
@imkeithfenimore and that's, as I see it, what's trending in social media this week!
