"Tom Is Not My Friend"

Posted by: Rob Hof on March 30, 2006

Poor Tom Anderson, the cofounder of MySpace. (Well, not really poor, having sold to News Corp. last year for $580 million, but anyway.) It seems the most popular T-shirt in the world these days reads “Tom is not my friend.” Apparently, people are tired of his automatically getting added to their friends list when they join MySpace. In fact, some people have gotten pretty worked up about it. Some friends, huh?

The practice of fawning all over the boss gives birth to all kinds of ridiculous practices.
They are corporate automatons of misery.

It's funny.
"Tom is not my friend" T-shirts are Hilarious! Few will know the meaning, but "lovers" of "myspace" and "Tom" will obviously take a little offense! Which is always great.

I'm looking for altered or fake, funny pictures of Tom. Know of any sites?

I'd like to see one of you people try and be tom for a day and see how you handle it!

I agree with Blaze. The team did a good job putting the site together and being the most common face in America today, it opens a lot of doors for the next Mark Chapman wanna be.
Got to respect him there. Seems like a decent enough guy. Wouldn't go clubbing with him, but won't ignore him if he was asking directions on the street.
