A 53-year-old Glasgow man has slipped into a coma after the 387 people on his Facebook friends list opted out of seeing his posts by using the ’30-day snooze’ function.
Tobias McDell, a mini-cab driver from Maryhill, was last night being cared for at home by his wife, Tracy, who told us: “The doctor told me that it’s down to the cumulative effect of being put on snooze by all his Facebook pals.
“To be honest, I don’t blame them. He’s a right boring bastard who just goes on constantly about his ailments and his allotment. I actually binned him from my list years ago.
“He also posts frequent pictures of his dinner and our new grandchild. Who, with the best will in the world, looks like f*****g Benny Hill.”
A Facebook spokesperson told us last night: “We’ve had a lot of this lately. Especially among people who post their gym workout routines or who openly support Donald Trump.”
