Yeah, what he said...

Dear FB Friends: You can't find out who saw your profile. You won't see what you'll look like in the future. You won't know what that man saw when he walked in on his daughter. There are no free iPads. And you can't see the video of Osama's death... Not on Facebook. Please stop clicking the spam links and exposing yourself and friends to virus risks. Repost, please. -- Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Above is a funny response that went around a little (and even made it to Failbook!) after the embarrassment of people virally reposting the following eloquent and mangled status update:
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that" -- Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

More misattributed or mangled quotes.
"Don't believe everything you read on the internet." -- Abraham Lincoln

Good one! I'm getting tired of reading that MLK misquote.

It's a good quote-the second one-but yes, not Rev.Martin.
