Unfriending Jimmy

Jimmy Kimmel recommends “cut out some of the friend fat in your life”, by unfriending any friends on Facebook that you’re not active friends with. This social prank is prompted by Dunbar’s Number (named after an Oxford Professor who mathematically demonstrated that one person cannot be connected with more than 150 people — “Hogwash,” I say, with my own theory being that Dunbar has few friends and is secretly jealous of those who have more).

I’ve decided to strike back, championing the cause that you can never have too many friends. How? By unfriending Jimmy Kimmel from my TV watching.

Join the movement, friends! Let’s see how soon Jimmy changes his tune.
