Description not posting with story on Facebook

My story is posting on FB just fine, but the description isn't part of what gets posted. What I'm getting instead is the URL to the page with the meta tags. There's some redundancy in the examples below, but I don't think that matters.

Is there some reason that the description wouldn't post?

        var accessToken = (string)Session["accessToken"];
        var args = new Dictionary<string, object>();
        args["appnamespace"] = "myapp";
        args["object_name"] = "myobname";
        args["myobname"] = "/social/post/facebook.aspx?id=qwerdefre";
        args["action"] = "Earned";
        args["access_token"] = accessToken;
        args["description"] = "Praesent neque velit, ultrices vitae purus eget";
        args["image"] = "/img/thisimage.png";
        args["link"] = "/pages/welcome";
        args["title"] = "The Title";
        FacebookClient client = new FacebookClient(accessToken);
        client.AppId = Configuration.Social.FacebookConsumerKey;
        dynamic result = client.Post("/me/myapp:myobname", args);
        Response.Write(result);
        Response.Write("<p/>");

Below are the meta tags from the Open Graph page:

    <meta property="fb:app_id" content="11123213" />
    <meta property="og:title" content="The Title" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="/img/thisimage.png" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="/social/post/facebook.aspx">
    <meta property="og:type" content="myapp:myobname" />
    <meta property="og:description" content="Praesent neque velit, ultrices" />

So, if anybody has any idea what I'm doing wrong, please let me know.
