No I don’t know you, but you invited me on Facebook

I am approaching 1400 friends on facebook, which means I get invited to multiple events every day- some of them pretty personal ones like weddings, engagement parties and graduation events. I have always wondered what would happen if I were to show up at one of these events- since I feel that people are too lazy to invite individual people and just invite all their “friends” half of which they haven’t seen in 15 years.

Frum Satire attends a random engagement party:

Host: Hi I’m not sure we’ve met…

Me: Mazel Tov, Mazel Tov (turn around to the food table)

Host: (taps me on back) excuse me do I know you?

Me: No but the dude getting engaged invited me

Host: Um thats me…who are you…why are you eating my food?

Me: You invited me on facebook (as I try to stuff my pockets with food before being asked to leave)

Frum Satire goes to a wedding shower he was invited to on facebook:

Random girl: This shower is for girls only, you know that?

Another Random Girl: What’s he doing here?

Girl getting married: (whispers to friend) I don’t know him either, get him out of here!

Me: So when do you all take your clothing off? (joking)

Me: Who wants to open my present first?

First girl with authority: Uh I have no idea who you are, but this party was only for girls. Did any of you ladies invite this guy here?

Me: Actually I received at least 3 different invitations on Facebook

So who wants to start going to random events that I get invited to on Facebook?

Oh and for marketing can you people become Facebook Fans

    I never actually did this… and that day has definitely not come although the other night I was driving in crown heights and someone recognized while I was pulling into a spot on Crown Street

    I dare you to dress up as a woman and attend a female-only party you’re invited to. And have someone film, of course. I loved the kayak video, btw. Nice way to end a day.

    I don’t “do” facebook. Blogging’s enough for me.

    I’ve actually hit a few houses that were said to be open in the event. I actually had a good time. It wasn’t a baby shower or an engagement, I’m not interested in attending those even if I know the people and they invited me. If it says open event, it better be open or you’re getting your nuts kicked in.

    Its just so weird to go to an event you don’t know anyone at and were invited by fake friends.
