Well, I don't use Facebook myself, but I think some people tend to use it for everything.
I've got to admit, I think that a good number of people reading the initial post would be very worried. I don't think the *friend's response* would be what would cause the embarrassment.
The status was up there for two days before she posted... not one single other person made a single comment on it.
People put lyrics up all the time as their status on Facebook. It's part of the culture of Facebook and almost no one cites the source--you either know the source because you know the person or you Google it to see what its source is.
It's kind of like playing a game.
It can be informational, and communicative. But, as I said, I never
put up cryptic messages about my state of mind and I quite often put lyrics.
I think I am thisclose to defriending her not only on FB but in real life. Too much drama!
A friend of my DH got arrested for lyrics to a song. He and my DH wrote a song about 6 years ago about that jerk in the midwest who put pipe bombs in people's mailboxes--the effect he was going for was that when you mapped out all the bombings it formed a "happy face." So, they wrote a song called "The Ballad of the Happy Face Pipe Bomber" and wrote the words really large on a blotter so he could see them while he sang and played drums.
Fast forward to last year--he and his wife are going through a nasty divorce. She comes across this blotter paper with these lyrics on it and calls the police telling him that he left it as a threatening letter to her. It even had the words "Repeat chorus" on it!
But, that didn't matter--the police actually arrested him for communicating a threat. He had to produce in the CD in court that had been put out years before to show that it was indeed lyrics to a song.
