Just what the world needs – another social network!

Have you heard about the new social network – like Facebook, only with very short messages (for the people with REALLY short attention spans)?

It’s called Farter.

People send out very brief messages called “farts.”

The recipients “sniff” the “farts.” So each message racks up a certain number of “sniffs.”

Instead of just “liking” or ignoring a “fart,” the “sniffer” rates it as “sweet,” “odorless,” “”mild,”  “pungent,” “stinky,”  “grab a gas mask,” or “run for your lives.” Adjustable fart-filters allow users to filter out farts that exceed a designated level of odoriferousness.

Farter users pride themselves on the gaseous, insubstantial, ephemeral nature of their “farting” and “sniffing.” They consider any piece of written communication that actually has any length, breadth, or substance to be a “turd.”

Wait a minute – my wife is telling me that somebody already invented this – it’s called “Birdpoop” or something like that.

Oh well, I passed the 140 character limit a long time ago anyway.

Time to flush.

  1. Dr. Barrett,

    Why can't I log on to TJ?

    Did you get my ten bucks or what?

  2. Hi David, Sorry, my webmaster has been unable to get the automatic sign-up working for certain OS's. So just email me at kbarrett(AT)merr(dot)com and tell me when you signed up, and I'll set you up manually.
