When Jonathan Standefer and Matthew Genitempo started Lamebook, they had no idea that their “parody” would get them to the place they are today. On the plus side, Lamebook, which is a site that catalogs “the funniest and lamest” things that people post on Facebook, is very popular and has allowed them both to quit their jobs and focus solely on the site.

On the negative side, Facebook has filed legal action against them for infringing on its trademark rights. Although the legal issues are not resolved, Standefer and Genitempo told WebProNews that they are proud of the success of Lamebook. They said the ordeal has been a great learning experience for them.
