This is one of the funniest and most absurd stories I've ever read! For quite some while the Daily Mail has had a very obvious anti-Facebook crusade, but this story is a classic. I don't blame the anonymous 'Daily Mail Reporter' for not putting their name to this.

Facebook not only gives you cancer (according to the Mail), but now it gives you syphillis as well? OMG!!!! (as they say online)
I'm on Facebook - I'm dreading my slow lingering death, scratching myself like a cat at the front door wanting fed.. I have ordered my coffin already and I'm only 37!!!
Seriously - what is the Mail's problem with Facebook? Why are no other social networks like Bebo and MySpace given such frankly ludicrous attention?
MySpace has plenty of randy ne'er do wells on it too - why do you never spread dumb stories about it? Ah, that'll be because it's owned by Rupert Murdoch, and you don't want to start a war with the Sun from where you lift much of your copy about Cheryl Cole. The "Omerta" between poor tabloid journalists eh?
I hope Facebook sue you and take you to the cleaners. You're obsessed!
Tabloid Watch and Angry Mob blogs for the WIN!!!
