Quirky News of the Web — March 2010

Previous quirky news posts: JanuaryFebruaryMarch

There are always smaller headlines that tend to go unnoticed. They are the headlines that let us know how individualistic and unique some of the interactions on the web can be, and how much social media is shaping our world in ways that we could not have fathomed 20 years ago.

Therefore, the Quirky News of the Web section will be dedicated to those pieces of news that might go unnoticed but still pack quite the punch.

A Pickle Has More Fans Than Nickelback

Once upon a time a pickle had a dream, and it set out on its seemingly unachievable goal of being more popular that Nickleback on Facebook. So, it created a fan page for itself and asked the question “Can a pickle get more fans than Nickleback?“. It was the 3rd of February and only 16 days later the pickle’s dream was achieved and Chad Kroeger was pissed as hell! The frontman of the Canadian Rock Band, Nickelback. was infuriated and sent this to the page creator:

Is that really Chad?

Is that really Chad?

Safe to say, the page still exists and has almost 1.58 million fans (Nickelback Fanpage has 1.48) and has spawned others like the “Can this pickle get more fans than Twilight“, and I’m honestly cheering for that one!
