Egyptian Father Names Daughter 'Facebook'




According to Al-Ahram (one of the most popular newspapers in Egypt) a twenty-something Egyptian man has named his first born daughter "Facebook" in tribute to the role the social media service played in organizing the protests in Tahrir Square and beyond.

Really... really? 

This poor girls' name is 'Facebook' Jamal Ibrahim.

May god have mercy on her soul.

"Hey Facebook, I wanna login and load my shots into you."
"I like you but where's the damn "like"-button?"
"I wanna plugin my apps in you, Facebook"
And im out of ideas
