12 Curious Facebook Fan Pages

Image credit: 

Some of you might recall my post, The 13 Types of Friends on Facebook, and, more specifically, category C, The Groupie, which I described as the friend who has joined more groups than Marcia Brady did that one year in high school when she was overcommitted and frazzled.

One thing that encourages those Groupies is the outright overwhelming number of pages one can Fan on Facebook. Here are 12 of the more curious ones I've stumbled upon recently. By all means, if you have a favorite I've left off the list, drop it in the comments below.

1. Arm Hair is Cool

"The point of the AHIC is to show girls that you don't HAVE TO shave your arms. It's way too unnatural! Besides, it's better to have hair instead of stubble on your arms!"

2. God Fan Page

"God has no recent posts."

3. Mr. Ed

[Er, ed. note: Not surprising entirely that there's a Fan page for the world's most famous talking horse. But with close to 400 members, you'd think there'd be SOMETHING on the page. Other than a couple photos, it's stark naked.]

4. Ingrown Toenails

[ed. note: It's unclear whether the 212 Fans of this page like getting ingrown toenails, or take comfort in the fact that 211 others are suffering from them too.]

5. I Take Pictures of Myself Wearing Giant Shades Because they Rule!

[Warning: some foul language on this page, but really just a collection of photos. ]

6. OJ Simpson

"OJ is the greatest American hero" [ed. note: um, okay that could definitely be debated]

7. Adults who can't seem to grow up

"For those of you with no eye defect this will seem strange. Compared to glasses these little round things are amazing :-)" [ed. note: apparently contacts have just made their way to the Czech Republic]

9. Men in Kilts
