Fibbing Friday — Fireworks

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses.

5. Which country uses fireworks on August 20th to mark it National Celebration Day?

      The company is called Meta. The app is still Facebook, I think.

        Your answer to number 1 is brilliant! As for number 7, I’m thinking Amazon (kindle… hm, and they even have — or ? had — a tablet called Fire). I suppose that’s more in the realm of book burning, though. And I do get your reference; I suppose it’s a competition between Facebook and twitter. [I am now reminded I want to read a certain book, today, to determine what caveat I will write inside the cover. Tata for now.]
