Why is your Facebook photo a car?

Why is your Facebook profile photo a car? I didn't realise that you were a Transformer?

Transformers car

You look good after all these years… Oh, that’s your dog in your profile photo. My bad.

I am pretty sure that you are not a Transformer so why is there a photo of a car as your profile picture? This question has been asked so many times that there is now a Facebook group of the same name.

I am also pretty sure that you are not a cat because your cat isn’t intelligent enough to know how to upload their photo. Even if it was, in a cats mind the only thing that a computer keyboard is good for is for sleeping on. Plus it doesn’t have any fingers to type. Anybody with a picture of a cat as their profile photo is likely to be incredibly boring and should be avoided. Unless you suffer from insomnia.

Your child resembles you more than your car or pet does. However, unless you are a grubby, dribbling midget, that photo is not of you either, so why is that your profile photo?

Have you noticed how people with kids as their profile photo, seem to upload 50 photos a day of the child playing, eating, sitting, vomiting, peeing, putting things in its mouth, and doing countless other things that nobody cares about. Well done… Your kid, just like every other kid in the world, knows how to put things in its mouth. You must be such a proud parent.

Your Facebook profile photo is for one thing. It is a place to upload a profile photo of you, the user. For that reason, I struggle to understand why some people use a photo of anything else?

Its your Facebook profile photo

I understand that some people with nothing better to do in their lives are going to have a go at me now by getting on their high horse and saying very smart, well thought things out such as  “It is my Facebook profile and I am entitled to do what I want, delete me if you don’t like it.

Get off of your high horse you moron and think of the people you are friends with. Unless your profile photo is of something disturbing like an act of bestiality, you pulling a duckface, or Julia Gillard, people probably won’t un-friend you because of it.

That said. Think of how strange it is for your friends to be discussing the finer points of politics with a BMW.

People are also going to feel a little bit weird having a conversation about how wasted they got on the weekend and how many girls they slept with whilst there is a photo of your child in the corner of the screen.

I'm an ex breakfast radio DJ who no longer hosts a breakfast radio show so I created this website to give myself somewhere new to make jokes and rant about life, pop culture, celebrities and stupid people.
