Still, Jimmy Kimmel felt obliged to try and squeeze the last vestiges of humor from our greatest social utility.
Reminding his audience that Tuesday was Facebook's birthday, he began: "What do you get for the Web site that makes you hate everything?"

One Kimmel effort: "Just … Read more
When your big brother tells you that your love handles have love handles, you accept it as a gesture of caring.
But if Big Brother texts you to say, "Keep a check on snacks and drinks," then you might think: "Oh, stuff that."
