Since its launch back in September, the Facebook page has received more than 124,000 likes and nearly 100 submissions of penis graffiti drawn on Australia's highest-circulating daily newspaper.

A Disney Cruise employee named Nelson has become internet infamous after allegedly stealing a passenger's iPhone and using it to take several photos. Thanks to Apple's Photo Stream feature, the owner of the phone was able to grab Nelson's snaps of himself, his friends and his girlfriend and upload them to her Facebook account.

"This is Nelson," she wrote next to one photo. "Nelson stole my iPhone."

While it hasn't been proven that this man actually took the phone and then foolishly failed to delete the owner's account before using it as his own, things certainly don't look good.

"I have alerted the officials of the Disney Cruiseline and forwarded them the photos. Hopefully I'll get my phone back and maybe some free passes to Disneyland," wrote the alleged theft victim.

Disney has yet to comment on the incident.

Facebook's first day of public trading, by the numbers: 571 million shares traded, a 23 cent gain in share price (up to $38.23 from an initial price of $38), and one hilarious parody video from the Taiwanese animation wizards at Next Media.

And how did all of this affect Mark Zuckerberg's personal wealth? The Wall Street Journal is glad you asked. You can refer to their live tracker of the kid billionaire's fortunes for all your Zuckwatch 2012 needs.
