Some Idiot gets big Facebook tattoo

John Moe Jun 8, 2011

I think I’m starting a new category on the blog and on the memo. It’s called “Some Idiot”. It’s where we’ll report something that Some Idiot did that relates to technology. Last week we told you about Some Idiot in China who sold a kidney in order to buy an iPad 2. This week, Some Idiot in the Netherlands got a massive tattoo of the profile pictures of all her Facebook friends on her arm. How many? 152.

UPDATE: Whoops. Looks like it was all a hoax. A scam. Shenanigans! A hornswoggle. Thanks to Seth at the Berkman Center for the tipoff!
