Dear Facebook, Please Stop Freaking Me Out

I joined Facebook a couple of months ago, and promptly became an addict. That hard-core addiction seems to be lessening somewhat, but I still spend about half an hour a day there checking up on things, feeding my pet, etc. I would like to take this opportunity to ask the Facebook people to please, please ban the ad that uses this photo:
All of the ads on Facebook are annoying, but THIS BABY FREAKS ME OUT. People, my state of mind is tenuous at best. I really don't need things like this looking out of the computer at me (and possibly trying to steal my soul). Thank you.

Cripes! I don't think I've seen that ad. What the hell is it trying to sell us? Creepy babies? I don't want any, thank you! The ones about how Jennifer Aniston stays thin are bad enough.

OMG. I haven't seen that either. The longer I look at it, the sicker I get. Literally. It makes me dizzy.

JD: It's an ad for one of those IQ tests. The text (which I couldn't copy, for some reason) says, "How many eyes do you see? 97% of American women get it wrong!" They use other photos of adults with extra eyes, too, but they aren't quite as creepy. I hate the ones about how the stars stay so young-looking, too.

Kathy: It is kind of nauseous-making to look at. Even more reason for Facebook to make it go away!

You better tell me there are four eyes on that freak baby.

Kathy: I think I'm part of the 97% of women who get it wrong. The longer I look, the more eyes I see!
