Beware of pressing the “like” button on this story, as we may have created a monster. Lior and Vardit Adler, a couple in Israel, just had a baby girl and decided to name her … “Like.” Yes, as in the Facebook‘s universal sign of approval, or as in a Valley Girl’s most frequently uttered word. “I wanted something unique,” explains Lior. “At first I was looking at Chinese names, and considered the name ‘Qing Yu Lang.’ But in the end, my wife responded to ‘Like.’ I have very few friends on Facebook—only about 120. So far only 50 of them like ‘Like.’”

A 17-year-old high school student from a Chicago suburb was arrested Monday for allegedly creating and distributing a list of 50 classmates ranked in terms of their sexual desirability.
