Hide your grapefruit spoons

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

Tomorrow Facebook will change its privacy settings to allow Mark Zuckerberg to come into your house while you sleep and eat your brains with a grapefruit spoon.

To stop this from happening, go to Account> Home Invasion Settings> Cannibalism> Brains> Grapefruit, and uncheck the "Tasty" box. Please copy and paste.

Or, if you'd prefer, put a single dollar bill in a plain #10 envelope, and address it to me, care of Active Rain, and I'll be happy to adjust your settings for you.

btw... You don't have to check with snopes.com ... I've already done that. Snopes says it's 100% true.

Since when do single dollars and grapefruit spoons meet in a factual & true message. Everyone knows that cash is sent in #6 envelopes not #10's. Scammer!

I hope he takes the spoon with him when he leaves. It would be terrible if someone used a brain-slimed spoon.

It would be hysterical to know whether anyone who reads this actually looks on their phone for Home Invasion Settings. Hahaha

One of the many reasons why I no longer keep grapefruit spoons.  And I can't remember the last time I bought grapefruit.  Although this does remind me of a similar request by Soupy Sales that got him a couple dollars and nationwide notariety!  Either way, you could be on your way!

I love grapefruit ... and have lots of grapefruit spoons.

There's a much easier way to eat a grapefruit and you don't need those spoons.

Is there any such thing as privacy in this digital world anymore?  I don't think so.

I would only be half surprised if this actually happened. So tired of hearing the news via FB, Twitter, and Instagram.  Remember when news reporters actually did the legwork?

Alan- I cannot believe I missed this earlier but my excuse was that I was packing. I haven't had a grapefruit in years but not because I don't like them but Larry read that he shouldn't eat them because of one of his medications. But now that I'm thinking about it, perhaps I should check this out on Snopes as well.

I'm just now getting around to reading this post from January.  I'm intrigued by Margaret's #24 comment.  I want to know a simpler way to eat a grapefruit.
