Here’s the original:

Lloyd Dobler: I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.

Now the update:

Lloyd Dobler: I don’t want to share anything, copy and paste anything, or like anything on social media. I don’t want to like anything shared or copied and pasted, or copy and paste anything liked or shared, or share anything liked, shared, or copied and pasted, or retweet or reblog anything liked, shared, or copied and pasted. You know, on social media, I don’t want to do that.

What do you think?
