Don't Neglect, Reach Out And Connect!

So the other day the cat was going to that other bay and we saw a sign, that was pretty sad to the feline. You know, one of those ones outside a grocery or any other store with words aglow. It said "follow us on Facebook" which just made me shake my head. Someone actually took the time to move the letters around to say that? I guess they are desperate for Facebook followers at their mat. But we can have some fun as we reach out and connect a ton.

Look at our sign,
Aren't we divine?
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter,
Now now, don't get bitter.

Just because you used your phone,
And now a ticket adds to your debt loan.
Should have stopped first,
After reading our burst.

At least now you know,
When 15% off cupboards are at our show.
But why stop with us?
Just look at the side of each bus.

Follow your bank!
Give it a yank.
Now you will know,
When stocks are low.

You know the drill,
Follow and like at our hill.
Then when it's time to drill and fill,
You'll know to pop a pain pill.

By joining our feed,
You will get all you need.
Life, medical, dental and even disability.
All are cheap at our sea.

By following our stuff,
When things get rough,
Give us a tweet,
We'll sue off their feet.

Watch your eyes,
As they swirl like flies.
Now with your like,
You'll know when Candy pretends to use the mic.

Could follow us as well.
Just ring the like bell.
Then when it is time for a shot,
With your pants down you'll still be caught.

Can you tell we are desperate as can be?
Even posting a sign on a tree.
Why will no one like?
Don't many want to take a funeral home hike?

Some things should just not be followed at our sea as they are just strange and creepy. But I suppose all are parts of life. Could follow if you need to divorce your wife or have bad teeth. Maybe if you need 15% off a wreath. But on following or liking I'll take a pass, no one needs to shove a shot in my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  1. I understand what you're saying Pat, to me it seems like certain businesses are using Facebook as a lazy way of getting business although maybe it's just adapting with the times. Great post Pat, also, am I first?

  3. Ha, I follow a few businesses on FB. Very few, but sometimes it is nice to find out when they have special offers I wouldn't hear about otherwise. (As long as they don't overdo their posts, I'm fine with this.....)

    1. The special offers are nice
      Can save on the price
      But some are just blah to me
      I'd never follow at my sea

  6. Cat, LOL
    I guess the ads are real scary
    Not so much in Mayberry
    We are rather behind
    There's more gold yet to find
    Not in the Facebook but out in the hills
    Bring pan and a pick for all kind of thrills

    1. Gold you say
      Just point the way
      The cat will dig like he's in the litterbox
      And soon have gold teeth and locks

      Delete
    2. LOL That image is soooo funny

      Get all the cats and I'll get mine
      We'll start them on the goldmine find
      Then strike it rich, take all the ore
      Gold teeth for all, forevermore.

      Delete
    3. I think we would have better luck
      Finding a buck
      Or at least getting the work done
      If we got dogs to dig under the sun
      Cats won't listen on bit
      There they will roll in the grass and sit

  9. Hey the cat with the knack
    no facebook at my show
    who will come who will go
    I don't really even know
    watch your back, for attacks
    signs of the time, make a dime
    better keep them off your show
    you already have a brilliant glow
    use it to light your fuse
    maybe, win a cruise..
    just be sure you don't get used
    because your a fine cat...
    with his own mat...and that's a fact..

  10. No FB to follow and show

  14. I follow our local indie book store that carries my book
    Otherwise, any other business that wants my follow can have it after buying my book. Yeah, that'll happen. The 'liking' thing is out of control too. I've liked 100 things, so I think I'm going to stop liking stuff.

    PS None of this was in rhyme. Maybe next time.

  15. I almost didn't come by today,
    Thought maybe like all the other A to Zers you would have nothing to say.
    But no not you, your full of the snark,
    Giving old Zuck and his pages a big dark mark.

    I closed several Facebook pages down,
    They all had my name but were not from my town.
    If they come back to haunt me again I'll just scream
    Facebook and liking is quite a bad dream.

    1. Pffft never nothing to say

      A big dark mark into a dark pit that makes your eyes bleed
      Plenty of dark there

  23. We always hoped FB was a fad that would just go away, then twitter came along. They are just too much time spent on the computer. We feel sorry for the kids bullied or left out of their "friends" activities and find out about it on FB. No thank you.

  26. Sadly failure to do this type of stuff suggests that you may be technologically impaired and some customers will shop elsewhere.

    At least I'm seeing that trend with larger companies.
