Tweet your Ma

#Mahmmm! A review of Facebook data shows that of its 1 billion users, 1 in 3 moms are “friends” with their teenage kids on Facebook. But some teens are using Facebook as a cover and posting the stuff they don’t want Mom to see on Twitter.

At least they were until Mom asks, as a Mother’s Day favor, to start following the kids on Twitter.

Voted off the planet: A Netherlands-based group plans to use a reality TV show to help select a team of colonists it will send to Mars. Before you submit your application video, consider this: The ticket to Mars is one-way; you won’t be coming back.

But why go to all that trouble? Couldn’t we just all agree to send every contestant for all seasons of “Celebrity Apprentice,” including Donald Trump, to Mars?

One down, one to go: Kevin Hulten, aide to County Executive Aaron Reardon, has resigned following the discovery of homemade porn on a county-issued laptop computer. Readers will recall that Reardon also has said he would step down, though he has yet to submit a letter of resignation.

We understand the executive is busy, so The Buzz would like to offer a “Mad Libs” resignation letter he is free to use:

“I (name) hereby resign the office of (name of political office) because I have been a (adjective) example of a (political party) and a (expletive) (adjective) (noun) whose best career option now is to appear on (title of reality TV show).”
