Woman: "Wait, I thought Matt was the Best Man."
Guy: "Oh he is, but I'm effectively the Best Man. The "acting" Best Man, you might say."
Woman: "Really? Wow. Ok. Will the wedding pamphlet be edited to reflect this?"
Guy: "Nah. I'm like the Karl Rove of this wedding. I have an official title that doesn't really reflect the behind-the-scenes stuff I'm doing."

Professor: "I had a dream about you last night."
Student: "Oh really?"
Professor: "Yes. That I was selling marijuana and you were my middleman."
Professor: "Exactly. I thought it was absurd too, given that you'd probably consume all of my product before even thinking of selling any of it."

Greetings and Salutations,
I come to you with news of a new outpost for Overheard In Philly on the web. I've created a Facebook Fan Page. There I will be posting the same overheards you see here but with less frequency and more lag. Yeah!
I've come to the Facebook thing late but I have found that some people don't go outside their walled gardens. There are people who only come to OHiP via RSS feeds, Twitter, or Live Journal reposts. Facebook is just another way of spreading the gospel of OHiP.
In summary, if you want your OHiP hot off the presses then grab the RSS feed. If you want your OHiP a little delayed, add me as a friend at Twitter. If you don't mind waiting hours/days and need to stay within the walled garden comfort of Facebook, that's available now as well.
The important thing is to keep reading what the other morons in our fair City and Suburbs have to say...and of course to keep sending in your Overheards to me!
