Tired of watching the tech and financial press fawn over Facebook’s initial public offering? You’re not alone.
Facebook’s IPO has drawn a hefty dose of cynicism, witticisms, and other assorted ribbing from around the Web. Below are some of the most amusing reactions to Facebook’s first day as a publicly-traded company:
