girls sitting near purseMillions of women are updating their Facebook status today to read "I like it on the floor," or "I like it on the chair," or "I like it on the kitchen counter." Sexy, right?

It's not, of course, where they want to have sex. (Thank god, because my mom wrote "I like it on the laundry room coat hook.") It's where they like to put their purses or handbags.

The Facebook "I like it on..." meme is intended to "increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month," much like last year's Facebook bra color status updates, according to the chain letter being passed around Facebook. The whole message is below.

Remember last year the post about what color bra you were wearing at the moment? The purpose was to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was a tremendous success and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made it to the news. This year's game has to do with your handbag/purse, where we put our handbag the we get home for example "I like it on the couch", "I like it on the kitchen counter", "I like it on the dresser" well you get the idea. Just put your answer as your status with nothing more than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their inbox. The bra game made it to the news. Let's see how powerful we women really are!!! REMEMBER - DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER AS A REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE- PUT IT IN YOUR STATUS!!! PASS THIS TO EVERY LADY YOU KNOW :-) send it to random girls so it can be passed on to everyone!

Last year's breast cancer awareness stunt, in which women on Facebook posted a color name without commentary, brought 140,000 new Facebook fans to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's Facebook page, but no breast cancer foundation would take credit for the meme. We don't yet know who started this year's edition.

Is this year's edition just as good? At least bra colors had something to do with breast cancer. Purses are just, like, "lady stuff." But is it valuable to have anyone raising awareness for fighting a disease, no matter how they attract attention?
Do the 'I like it on...' Facebook statuses do anything to fight breast cancer?
Yes, they raise awareness, and that's very important!6198 (28.3%)
Maybe. They might raise awareness, but not enough to matter.2873 (13.1%)
No, but it's just a bit of fun.6440 (29.4%)
No way, these Facebook statuses are annoying and do nothing.6385 (29.2%)

By the way, I have a man-purse, and I like it sitting on a table in the middle of a cafe.
