What do YOU hate about the right hand column?

Attention Mark Zuckerberg, I hate the Facebook right hand column.

I don’t hate it because it’s all advertisements, on the contrary, advertisements are fascinating to me.  I don’t hate it because it’s expanding like a Gremlin in a microwave, crowding out such beloved Facebook chatskis as “Pieces of Flair” or “Mafia Wars”.  I hate it because it may be the least intelligent marketing currently at work in this solar system… and this is a planet that still employs telemarketers.

Sometimes the ads are spelled terribly or make no sense whatsoever. I’m pretty sure that these ads are being copy-written by someone who employs English as a fourth or fifth language. I submit to you the exquisitely crafted “Best Products All” that appeared on my page yesterday:

This is the “worstest” attempt at legibility that I have “even seen all” since Miss Teen South Carolina helped us locate “the Iraq.”

Because nothing says “Happy Mother’s Day” quite like something from Lady Gaga…
