(freshrant.com) The normally very private founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerburg, has confirmed earlier press reports that Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdul-Aziz is attempting to become the sole owner of Facebook.

Zuckerburg released a rare public statement that the king began poking him this past week and was unrelenting until Zuckerburg finally blocked his account.

"I mean it was getting ridiculous.  He listed the two of us as being 'in a relationship' and inboxed me with threats that if I didn't let him buy the company he would "chop off the fingers that created "the evil two-faced vice of the infidels.'"

Abdullah's latest posts on Zuckerburg's wall:

"Dude, U know how crazy I get when I don't get my way.  That whole thingy about me getting out the sword...don't be so serious, bruh!  Aight?!   Now Chop Chop. (jking!)"

"Why won't u return my calls?!?!? "

"I just tagged you on an hysterical video link of a Saudi woman trying to drive.  LMAO!"

"Markster!  I so want 2 make U my bEyAtcH!  again jkg! lol"

"Hit me don't quite me! 4EAE!!!!!"

"holla!!!"

"A frenemy is not your enemy!!!"

"eating falafel alone in palace...  tear..."

When a member of Abdullah's inner circle was asked how much the king was offering Zuckerburg for Facebook, the king reportedly raised his right pinky finger to the corner of his lips and announced, "One million dollars."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
