Wickedly funny and irreverent, this hilarious parody of Facebook takes readers on a wild ride through the ages to imagine the status updates, profile pages, and late-night exchanges of the most famous figures in history.
From Henry VIII’s many relationship status updates (and the Pope’s responses) to J. Edgar Hoover’s interests and hobbies (Fashion, Surveillance, Destroying Lives), Let There Be Facebook is history as it’s never been read before.
With the recent discovery of ancient Ethernets, noted historians Brylon K. Tilgh, Ph.D., and Dr. Tony Cougarmouth have plumbed the depths of Facebook dispatches that date back to the beginning of time itself to unearth highlights such as:
· God and Abraham’s exchange over Isaac’s life (God was a real practical joker!)
· Live updates from Gandhi’s hunger strike
· The original Woodstock event page
· And much more!
Not only a fun romp through history, Let There Be Facebook is also a clever parody of the often ridiculous ways we’ve come to communicate with each other via social media. It’s the perfect gift for the student of history, armchair traveler, or Facebook addict in your life!
