Arguing on Facebook…Again

November 14th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

As a comedian, I’m supposed to be using Facebook to promote my comedy, the podcast, and gain new fans. Yet all I seem to do is get into arguments with strangers. Today was no exception…

This was a news story you might have heard about where some Muslims asked if their holidays could be included in the school’s calendar since Christian and Jewish holidays were included. To be clear, they were not asking for the day off. They were not asking for the school to celebrate the holiday in any way. They were not asking to have the other holidays removed form the calendar. They just wanted to not be excluded. Or as some of the people on the comments for the article put it…

“Send them back where they came from”

“Merry Christmas to the Muslims, like it or leave!!!”

“Shame on you MARYLAND for allowing this attack on our children…”

After reading those comments, I wished my soul could take a shower. Hence I posted the above. But then an old girlfriend from high school responded…

Yes…that’s Cindy Crawford’s picture. What? You don’t think I could have dated Cindy Crawford in high school? Shut up!

But then a friend of a friend commented on my comment and that’s when I lost my cool…

Another lifelong Tim Babb fan recruited. I’m doin’ it!

    Have you considered making a separate page for your comedy promotion, etc? Not that this would keep qumphs out of your life, but it would at least allow you to separate “friends” and “fans” a bit … and participate in things personally but not publicly?

    Curious, I searched for Tim Babb on Facebook and found the rather curious Tim Babb: Buddy Holly or Eraserhead? group. Can’t have other people out there taking your name!
