Mentos has partnered with The Martin Agency to create a Negative Tweet Eliminator app for Facebook. It isn't a bad idea, though it's executed in a way that ranges from "not fun" to "positively annoying." The app features "Dragee," a hippie moonbat stereotype (hey, it's a culture, not a costume) who floats around the sky eliminating recent tweets with negative words or hashtags. "Fail" and "#fml" are two examples of what he's clearing away. Too bad he couldn't use his magic touch to make that annoying music loop disappear.
