So. You know Ricky Anderson. He’s guest posted here before. We’re both in IT.


As such, you would think that we’re kindred souls, or some such.

You would think wrong. Ricky is a frenemy of the first order. Read on to see just exactly what I mean.

We’ve established that I’m a better Internet sleuth than Ricky Andretti, er, Anderson. (How’d you like that pizza, Ricky? The one with extra sardines (they were out of anchovies)?

I think he must be a little bitter about that–because he hacked my system, and filed my taxes for me!

Fortunately, I have friends at the IRS, and I told them what was going on. It’s all squared away now. In other words, Ricky, can you smell the audit coming your way?

Anyway, while junior was playing script kiddie, I was busy executing the largest social engineering scam in world history. And like that shampoo commercial of old, I told two friends, and they told two friends, and so on…

This thing went viral.

What did I do?

Well, as you may, or may not, know, Ricky is not currently on Facebook. I know, the horror, right? I mean how can he expect to grow his platform?

Since he wasn’t doing it, I decided I’d help him out. By creating a special URL (web address) that opens to a new email message imploring him to join Facebook. Yes, that’s right–at this very moment there are hundreds, if not thousands, of messages in his inbox asking “Why aren’t you on Facebook?”

(In fact, if you’d like to join the campaign, please click here. Ricky will be eternally grateful).

Ricky, come to the darkside. We’re waiting. 😉

What else should I do to Ricky? What would you do?

PS Ricky can’t wait to catch the re-release of the Phantom Menace in 3D. Because, as he said, “Jar-Jar in 3D! What’s not to love?” He preordered his tickets months ago, and that’s where he’s taking his wife for Valentine’s Day. To see Jar-Jar Binks in eye-popping 3D. (Or as I like to call it Stsr Wars: Episode 57, Lucas’s Search for Yet More Money

Round 2: over.
