Poking, Superpoking, all that kind of stuff

What is the point in 'throwing a sheep at someone'? What does it do? Let's people know you are interested? Sounds a bit strange.

I agree, it's just for fun. I've thrown a sheep, a chicken, a cow, a fish, a spider, a pumpkin... the list goes on. I've given cookies, bought drinks, given flowers, and a lot of other stuff (never got to participate in a food fight yet though!) on SuperPoke. It's nice to go up a level and get new actions! Lol. But I only do this with my friends who like using SuperPoke as well, like those who are active on Facebook. Otherwise I really wouldn't bother anyone unless I know they're fine with it and they would do something back.

I forgot to add, I don't think it has a purpose either, really just for fun. If you're bored and want something to do that doesn't involve thinking, then fooling around in Facebook is a nice way to pass the time.

Sorry mate, I've never heard of throwing a sheep. Not sure what your heading means either. Where'd you hear this stuff...are they expressions you've heard or seen? Something on TV maybe? Can you be a bit clearer and I might be able to understand...lol It's a no brainer day for me I guess.

I don't understand the whole poking thing either. I mean what the heck are you doing it for. It's really kind of stupid. And are you suppose to poke back? I'm not sure why people do it and I usually just ignore it when it happens. It may just be a way of getting your attention, but writing on my wall would work a whole lot better.
