The Big Bang Theory & Relationship Updates

It's time to end the week on a light note. I'm always amused by people who feel like they have to give constant relationship updates on Facebook. It strikes me as a shade needy, as the guys on The Big Bang Theory discussed during the show's second season. As it turns out, there's an interesting twist to the debate.

Enjoy the clip!

The White Asparagus Triangulation


  1. I have got to start watching this show! I hear so many great things about it and that clip made me chuckle! For an april fools prank, I put that I was in a relationship. Turns out that I made a lot of people angry when they found out that I was still single...

  2. I recently broke up with Facebook, not exclusively because of people's relationship status and Farmville updates, but both of those things had something to do with it.

  3. Jennee - I think it's fair to spoof the relationship status on April Fools. I had some married friends who put that they were getting a divorce - each changing their status from married to single as the day went by and both denying that it was an April Fools prank. They were very convincing, so I always wondered if anyone got upset with them over that.

    Katy - I admire you for breaking up with Facebook. That's a tie that I haven't been able to cut. I'd say more, but I need to get back to my farm now. ;-)

  4. Funny twist - life in the fast lane of Farmville! ;-D

  5. Hmmmm.... I wonder if that the true sign of committment now. When the significatn other changes their facebook status and actually links to you. --I'm always scared to even add a guy that i'm dating to myh friends list, much less admit that we;re in a relationship. I've had too many bad relationships to do all of that.

  6. Constance - I agree. I think it's OK to wait until the status can be changed to married to even bring it up at all. ;-)
