“My Facebook-using grandfather died. We won’t be seeing the likes of him again”

Facebook is an online social media website that allows users to “like” posts. A joke is:

“After spending up to twelve hours a day on Facebook for years, my grandfather died yesterday. We won’t see the likes of him again.”

The joke was posted on Twitter on April 24, 2011 and probably originated on Sickipedia.
