On the other hand, Ed Morrisey said if I'm ever passing through Minnesota, look him up and he'll buy me my own brewery.
To be fair to Ed, I should explain that I learned, from studying the online operations of some of my young friends, the Zen of posing the "Classic Facebook Photo":
- Arrange a random group of your buddies, preferably holding beverages;
- Have them lean in on each other like a football huddle, to suggest an artificial sense of intimacy; and
- Everybody act as if they're up to mischief and shenanigans.
Bonus points if you can convince either a famous celebrity or the prettiest girl at the party to pose with you and your snowball's-chance loser buddies. The general idea is for the undergraduate geek with substandard social skills to assemble a series of Facebook photo albums that convey to others the impression that, in fact, he is the all-time mack daddy who hangs with his posse at the coolest venues and gets jiggy with the hotties like an NBA superstar during All-Star break.
