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.

“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).”
