Grey Poupon mustard, the original condiment of high society, is treating their Facebook page like an elite, invitation only, glad-handing cotillion. Suffice it to say that riff raff need not apply. If you fall anywhere from “Suck at life” to “You know, things are going pretty well for me” on the spectrum of life, meander your low-rent ass on over to the French’s page. It’s a free-for-all over there. You’re just not Grey Poupon material, and your “like” attempt will lead to a Grey Poupon page exiling. Save yourself the embarrassment of the impending denial.
Those users who want to become a fan of Grey Poupon’s Facebook page will have to apply for membership through an application on the page called The Society Of Good Taste. The app scans your Facebook page to learn more about your interests, friends and writing style and from this, it automatically assigns you a score which determines whether your tastes are refined enough to be a Grey Poupon fan. If you just try to like the page without going through this process, Grey Poupon will delete you as one of its fans.
If this sounds ridiculously elitist, that’s the point.
That’s right; their application page is called “The Society of Good Taste.” So far around 22,000 fans have scored high enough to enter the Good Taste Society. Look, you don’t join your city’s most elite country club without passing a thorough screening, and you cannot enjoy this fancy fucking mustard if your Facebook page reveals your uncouth lifestyle.
I hope you like yellow mustard, you societal leaches.
