Facebook went down for a little while earlier today. People panicked at their newfound time and increased productivity.
Attention world: #facebookdown. Please remain calm and do not attempt to interact with human beings.

But of course, it escalated when people started calling their local law enforcement officers about this criminal event.
#Facebook is not a Law Enforcement issue, please don't call us about it being down, we don't know when FB will be back up!

Congress should pass a law that makes it illegal for Facebook to go down on a Friday afternoon.
