Guy 1: Dude, I haven't seen you on Facebook or AIM in a week! I thought you were dead.
Guy 2: Naw, man, I was just cyberfasting. I get too addicted to cyberspace sometimes! I never get anything done.
Guy 1: Oh, snap--I should do that. Some girl thinks I'm stalking her just because I LOL at all the funny crap she posts all day.
Guy 2: SHE should cyberfast, too.
