Colleen Cudney was convicted of DUI in 2012, and placed on probation as a result. One condition of her probation was to remain alcohol free.

Imagine how spooked she must have been the day after St. Patrick’s Day, when the 22-year-old was summoned for a random breathalyzer test.

The Westland, Michigan resident passed, but the made the unbelievably baffling to celebrate the good news on Facebook. People are not smart.

Police told WDIV she posted, “Buzz killer for me, I had to breatalyze this morning and I drank yesterday but I passed thank god lol my dumbass."

A buzz killer for her, indeed.

Not everybody fakes it for Facebook, but we all know the type who does.

If everyone's marriage were like some people make it seem for the sake of appearances online, the divorce rate would be like zero percent in the U.S.

Some married couples opt for the ironic, but honest route of sharing 25 reasons your kid is crying and other such humorous, realistic portraits of family life.

A lot of people still try to pass it off like some sort of utopia, however.

If you trusted the Facebook feeds of some of your friends, marriage and child-rearing are just so blissful, euphoric and rewarding ... why would anyone not do it?

Check out 11 pics of what a Facebook Marriage looks like ...

Candace Cameron-Bure wants her Facebook haters to know that she sees their comments and is not impressed with the vitriol regarding her religious beliefs.

Having joined the Dancing with the Stars cast for Season 18, the former Full House star is back in the spotlight, and for her, this hasn't been totally positive.

"[L]ately, as my FB page has been growing rapidly with new 'likes,' it’s becoming a sensitive issue for me to post because of the dread in my heart," she wrote.

"Knowing I am going to get discouraging comments," she says, makes it less fun to even post on her page, which has more than half a million Likes.

"[A]ll I see is a bunch of religious people throwing around bible verses attacking each other," she writes, with non-religious people then going after them for it.

Cameron defended her religious beliefs, but said that is is never her intention to make her Facebook page all about them or to cause any sort of controversy:

You would think that here in the 2010s, a.k.a. The Digital Age, enough of these stories would've gone viral for people to keep their social media use in check.

You would be very, very wrong, but you'd think.

Anything you say or do online can and will become social media fodder. At least there's a possibility of it. This Murphy's Law of the Internet is undeniable.

Time and again, people just don't get it, though.

Whether they're tonguing the food at the restaurant where they work or having profane thoughts about others, these events inexplicably make their way online.

Then other people see them. The rest is history.

Here are 13 humans who found out the hard way that posting controversial or just plain stupid things online can cost them their jobs ... for better or for worse:

@CarlyCrunkBear
Carly "@CarlyCrunkBear" McKinney, whose handle says it all really, was a 10th grade math teacher who often posted images like this on Twitter. Her employers were not happy and placed her on administrative leave. Her students thought she was pretty awesome, and protested to get her back. To no avail. She was fired in the end.

Kelly Blazek, a Cleveland-based PR executive and authority on local communications jobs listings, was undone by the same thing that built her up:

Social media.

Kelly Blazek Letter

With her ego boosted by the position she cultivated via LinkedIn and other networks, she soon became an Internet villain at the hands of someone she shunned.

The irony.

Blazek, for a little more back story, produced and distributed a popular email that culled job openings from online job sites and from her own contacts.

She worked for 10 years building her contacts and selecting the list of people who receive the email, limiting recipients largely to those with experience.

Couples on Facebook can be cute. At least we assume that it's happened before. It's theoretically possible at least. That's about as positive as we can be.

Why? Because most of the time, couples on Facebook are beyond irritating, cramming their news feeds with their declarations of love around the clock.

All the while, making us wish we could unfriend them without drama.

They commemorate their one-month anniversary with cheesy pics. They whisper what should be private sweet nothings into the Facebook ether.

They're insufferable. And you know just who we're talking about.

Below, scroll through 11 of the most annoying couples on Facebook, and see if you recognize these kinds of online antics from any of your friends and family ...
