Comment of the Day: If Twitter, Google+ and Social Media Were Around During the First Moon Walk

Categories: Whatever

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We offered five obscure facts about the Apollo 11 moonwalk in honor of its 42nd anniversary today. Besides wine and Buzz Aldrin's perverse refusal to take pictures of Neil Armstrong, the list included the fact that Aldrin holds the honor of being the first man to pee on the moon. (In his suit, actually.)

One reader went to town on what it would be like in today's social-media world.

Can you imagine if we had all these social media channels 42 years ago, Buzz and the gazillions who watched him, would have been pretty busy on all these channels: Twitter: I need to pee pee!

I pee peed!

I'm pee peeing here!

Why am I pee peeing?

Watch this pee pee!

I pee pee well

myspace: let's dance while pee peeing!

Let's all pee pee in a circle
: HOW AWESOME DO I PEE PEE on Twitter, FB, Foursquare, Quora, youtube,
LinkedIn, myspace and Google+

Houston! Thanks again for featuring my comment. The credit really goes to my 8 year old boy who was taking care of the business in the toilet and shouted "Look Dad! how awesome I pee pee" Well, having been in the social media space for the past 10 years myself, his comment gave me the idea to create  this image and post that comment on your site:

BTW, you do have my permission to use the pee pee image  if you'd like to. It brought ton of traffic to my personal blog, Hope it does the same thing to yours :-)
