Unintended downside to having a name that begins with 'Grand': People who don't know what they're doing on Facebook (old people) will keep accidentally tagging you in photos when they mean to type 'Grandma' or 'Grandpa.'

That's what's happening to hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash. Thursday night, he weighed in on the silly Facebook quirk. "It’s true I get a lot of posts from Grandmas. Hilarious now I know why — Respect Grandma and Grandpa. P.S. This is Hip Hop!” Grandmaster Flash wrote on his Facebook page."

The Washington Post points out that there's a Tumblr full of collecting the best accidental Grandmaster Flash Facebook tags. The typical post? "Hi, sweetie...just sending you a hug...love, Grandmaster Flash."
