😏Meme: It's international book week.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh boy, here we go again with another "Let's make up an international week for something and use it to start another meme!"
Even if there was an international book week, I'd think people would be too busy reading international books to start bandwidth-clogging virals, and since when does a week begin on a Thursday? that was the day I first saw this chain posted on a friend's FB status. It was Thursday Sept. 19, 2012. Just for the record in case somebody gets the bright idea to restart this chain on a different day and date in the future.
😏Meme: The rules:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Don't expect me to follow them beyond posting them here for the purpose of expose&smash.
😏Meme: Grab the closest book to you,
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Well since I'm nowhere near any right now, and wouldn't even if I was…
😏Meme: turn to page 52
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Why 52? Is this some numerology thing again? After all, 5+2=7, which is supposed to be one of the very good numbers in that hokum.
😏Meme: and post the 5th sentence as your status.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yep, a numerology scheme. Number 5 is apparently another very very very good number in that stuff.
Well what, other than clogging up FB with pointless statuses that look like absolute nonsense along with copies of these rules, do you hope to accomplish? You're better off reading your international books, this is a really annoying idea, just like all others of this ilk Really, who cares what's on page 52 of the nearest book everybody picks up? I'll give you a hint, not me.
😏Meme: Don't mention the title.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Of course not, because you want people posting all this random stuff while making as little sense as possible, upping the annoyance factor even more. I'm not going to ask everyone who participates in this thing what the title of their book is or write them comments trying to guess.
😏Meme: Copy the rules as part of your status.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No. I only had to include a copy of them here to smash this chain. People have to know specifically which meme is being mangled and why and how. It is not going on any status of mine.
