Did I just read that?

Normally, I have a rule against putting Facebook posts on Did I just read That? even though a lot of them are funny. I don't want it to come back to bite me that I'm mocking my friends who are speaking "casually" (albeit in writing). I have no such rule for "published" material (even Craigslist is published!).  BUT there's one exception to the Facebook rule: when someone shares a link that has a funny in it.  Like this one:

On Facebook today: "Bullies Target Obese Kids on Yahoo! Health"

Good reason to stay off Yahoo! Health if you are overweight then!

(If you click the link, you'll see the headline was "Bullies Target Obese Kids," but Yahoo kindly reminded us where the article came from, making an unintentional gaffe.)
