En este artículo, querido lector, discutiremos los límites del humor, o mejor dicho, del falso humor que busca camuflar el palpable odio que se esconde como colonia de cucarachas en un cuarto oscuro. En este caso Facebook es el cuarto oscuro y las cucarachas son cibernéticas. Pero antes de encender la bombilla y hablar de esta plaga, tenemos que dar un breve recorrido al pasado.
