Beef. Or maybe Pork. I dunno. It's certainly not Jerky.

HARLINGEN, TX - A local man has established a new Facebook friendship based entirely on the mutual like of Oberto brand Natural Style Peppered Beef Jerky sources discovered on Wednesday.

A Facebook user for nearly 18 months, 39 year old area resident Jacob Miller considers himself a casual user of the service at best, however family and friends are growing more concerned with recent and unusual trends in his Facebooking habits and are beginning to suspect that the allure of the website with all its amazingly worthless, timewasting elements is becoming an unhealthy distraction. "I'm not sure what to make of him 'friending' someone just because they also 'liked' this beef jerky product", Miller's wife Amy said during a telephone interview. "He must really have too much time on his hands. I had to listen to him go on and on the other day about how he had found someone [on Facebook] that also revered the 'delicious taste and exceptional value' of [Oberto brand beef jerky] and that he thought he had finally found his 'soul mate'. What the hell is that all about?"

Miller's behavior has led his wife to suspect that there is definately much more going on than meets the eye. "The other day I startled him when I walked into our bedroom while he was on the computer. He had a chat window open and although he tried to close it quickly, I could make out the word, 'jerky' several times before he was able to block my view. He tried to cover it up by saying he was looking for a good deal on a condo on South Padre [Island] or some nonsense like that. Who does he think he's kidding? He never takes me anywhere."

Later that night, Miller was overheard having a spirited conversation in his sleep about how the 1/4 lb. bag [of beef jerky] is the perfect snack option for those on the go or just relaxing at home.
