No, you can't read my poker face. (Via Nottinghamshire Police)

It is hard to believe that it is still around, but Facebook poking is still the easiest way to let someone know you're a creepy weirdo without saying a word. Whenever I receive a "poke notification," I lower my head to my hands and think, "Oh god, who do I need to unfriend?"

The unfriended are the lucky ones. When Scott Humphrey learned that his friend Richard Rovetto had poked his girlfriend on Facebook, he killed him.

According to the Mirror, the two were riding home in a cab after attending a bachelor party when Humphrey, 27, accused Rovetto, 29, of the now infamous poke. The cab driver recalled hearing him yell, "If you're such a good friend then why did you poke my missus?"
