Foursquare's Biggest Fails Are Amazing And Epic

Four Square LOL is a new Tumblr devoted to Foursquare's worst (and best) check-ins.

Would you use Foursquare to check in to your proctologist's office? Most of us would say a resounding "No" to that suggestion—but somewhere, sometime, someone did. They also used Foursquare check-ins to take catty digs at family members, show obsessive love for McDonald's, indicate possible drug problems, and much, much more.

Four Square LOL is a new Tumblr from Brooklyn-based comedian Tim Meehan, who's best known for his previous blog Make Me A Sandwich Bitch. That blog consisted entirely of the sublime joys of Twitter users asking women to make them sandwiches.

We've collected some of the best of Meehan's Foursquare discoveries above.

    Another hilarious Foursquare fail "subset" is the "unintentional / comical pairing." For example, this tweet, which made it seem like I was traveling with an acquaintance of mine because it appended his name automatically (we were both checked into the airport).

    It was my anniversary trip with my wife. Weird.
