This might be a first. Someone called us out in our comments section last week and we...can't hide our shame. They're 100% right.
Sorry Alisha. A grave oversight on our part. You're absolutely right: Whambulance Wednesday just isn't the same without some sobbing Van Der Beek. Please notice that we've steered our ship back on course with the picture's return this week and accept our humblest apologies. Thus concludes Whambulance Wednesday.
Just kidding. There was also this much less civilized gripe that we wanted to address:
Good news! Facebook does indeed have a built-in mechanic for screening what content makes it to your Wall, dear fan of the show who, at one point or another, made a conscious decision to 'Like' The Soup.
We'll give you a hint. It involves the thing we just mentioned about you. You're seeing this and all our other vile filth and flarn because you, or someone who has your FB password and good taste in free Internet content, hit the 'Like' button and opened the portal to unlimited possibilities.
If the vast panoply of comedy gold that we have on offer isn't to your liking, you can always hit 'Unlike'. We wouldn't recommend it though. The NSA tends to red-flag subscription wafflers as being easily swayed by immediate circumstance and thus prone to erratic and Un-American behavior. Yeah, we made that up but that doesn't mean it isn't true. Plus, if you unlike us, that'll be one less faceless entity for you to hurl your pent-up frustrations at and everyone needs a good effigy to burn, from time to time.
In any case, we wanted to let you know what your options are. Should you choose to stick with us, we will attempt to suck less. No promises, though. We kind of suck at fulfilling vague, abusive commands.
