I was just on Facebook conducting official work business (PROCRASTINATING) for a few minutes and happened to glance over to the right hand side of my feed.
In the “Recommended Pages” section I saw this…and laughed:
Yes, apparently 1,394,116 more people like Michael Jordan than God.
(Considering many of us used to joke back in the day that Michael Jordan was God, when we judged him only his basketball supremacy and didn’t realize he was a raging jackwagon in real life, I suppose this makes some sense.)
Also, just as many of my friends like Taco Bell as like God. Hmm…I may be doing life wrong.
Now before you get all up in arms, I know that this means nothing. There just happens to be some random Facebook fan page for “God” that one of my friends happens to like, and it somehow found its way through Facebook’s algorithm into this recommended page widget. I’m sure if we tallied up all of the likes for “God” pages that they would dwarf Taco Bell and probably Michael Jordan too.
But just taking a quick glance at it, and remembering Jon Washburn’s excellent post from earlier this week about how we overly-romanticize the “glory days” of hoops, I couldn’t help but chuckle.
Update: Thanks to @PeteGains for pointing this out. Look closer at the image. 1,394,117 people like Michael Jordan’s misspelled name.
