No more toilet paper, bye socks: Facebook's cancer awareness game makes no sense

Have you noticed your friends putting some rather strange or unusual status updates lately? Well, they haven't lost their mind, but are simply taking part in another game Facebook game that makes absolutely no sense. My Fitness Pal reported on March 25, 2014, that it is another way for people to raise awareness for breast cancer research, but another way that makes no sense.

Maybe you've seen someone post a Facebook status that says "No more toilet paper, goodbye socks." Others may have posted "Just won $7000 on a scratchy."

These people never post an explanation or elaborate when people like or comment on it, but there is still more to it all. If you happen to "like" it or comment on these strange status updates, you'll get an email letting you know it is a chain mail for breast cancer awareness and you need to do something like this:

"Oh dear,dear,dear. You should not have liked or commented! Now you have to pick one of the 14 below & post a status. This is the 2014 breast cancer awareness game. Don't be a spoil sport, choose your poison & change your status.1) Damn diarrhea 2)Just used my boobs to get out of a speeding ticket. 3)Anyone have a tampon. I'm out. 4) How do you get rid of foot fungus. 5)Why is nobody around when l am horny? 6) No toilet paper, goodbye socks. 7)Someone offered me a job as a prostitute but l' m hesitant. 8)l think l'm in love with someone what should l do? 9)l've decided to stop wearing underwear. 10)l still love my ex. 11) l really don't know how to tell anyone and l'm sick of hiding it l'm gay. 12) Guess it was 2 good 2 be true l'm pregnant. 13)Just won $7000 on a scratchy. 14)l've just found out l've been cheated on for the past 5 months. Haha..."

Somehow, some way, this is supposed to raise everyone's awareness for breast cancer research. How that is supposed to happen is beyond the explanation of anyone that doesn't want to play the game or those that partake in it as well.

There have been a great number of Facebook games that have caused controversy, and the most well known was the "Giraffe Riddle" back in the fall of 2013.

A lot of these little games usually have something to do with breast cancer awareness, but none actually ever raise awareness.

There was one game that was popular last year on Facebook and it would have females writing a status update that said something like they were "Going to England for 26 days," or something similar. This little game was supposed to be kept secret and have it so only females knew what the updates meant.

How is it supposed to raise awareness for breast cancer research when you're purposely keeping information from half the population? That's right up there with pictures of babies saying, "If this pictures gets one million likes, this baby can have surgery."

How?

Either way, this new "game" of sorts, will have your friends posting strange status updates. You'd better not comment or like it because you'll have to post a weird status afterward. Actually, no you won't, and you won't be considered any less of a supporter of breast cancer research either.
