Sources to the Gazette report that Joe Brown ’06 broke up with his girlfriend of two months on Thursday. “She was just starting to get on my nerves,” Joe said when asked about the relationship, which he ended by going to his thefacebook.com profile and changing his status from “In a Relationship” to “Single” and “Whatever I can get.”
“Now I can actually hit on all the girls with hot looking pics. There are even girls at other schools all around the country who I can hit on using this website!” Joe exclaimed happily.
Though she was not available for comment due to a massive crying jag, friends say that Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Tina Smith ’07, did not find out about the move until two days later when she checked his profile. In the period during which she had been unwittingly dumped, Smith had continued to behave as if they were dating.
