I'd like to use my Boobies to say i laughed hystericaly at the headline.

I applied for a job at B&N once, sadly, and the interviewer has to ask ever potential employee if they have a moral objection to one particular part of the job. Apparently, a salesperson at B&N has to ask every customer they deal with if that customer would like to buy a $25 loyalty card, that gives them a couple special priviledges, but also means they won't shop at Borders.

Borders is right across the street from this particular B&N. What I'd really like to see is this two multi-gabillion dollar corporations duke it out over $12.95. Stupid stupid stupid.

So I left and headed straight to a mom and pop store where the people there actually read books.

I guess this is all kind of off topic, but at least it's on headline. Thanks for letting me share.

I didn't bother reading the article, but the headline kicked much ass.

Best. Headline. Ever.

A headline as good as any The Onion has put out. On this day, we salute you.

Countdown till Harmonia mentions Bush will be killing civilians with oil to protect our borders....

Excellent headline. That's why I come to fark.
2002-01-25 03:32:38 PM  
its about time they spend more money on patrolling borders. Have you heard they (democrats) are trying to give federal money to Illegals killed in the 911 attack? If they weren't there in the first place then they never would have been killed. why are my tax dollars going to help illegal aliens who broke the law in the first place???
2002-01-25 03:35:31 PM  
sorry for the rant...
2002-01-25 03:55:05 PM  
"If they weren't there in the first place then they never would have been killed."

Well, dammit, then why should we pay benefits to anyone who's stupid enough to be killed by anything? I mean, everyone who's dead should've known better! And now, they're just sitting on their lazy asses in padded coffins while I slave away. THE INJUSTICE! THE INJUSTICE!!!!

That headline sucked. Clinton did this to us. God is a fairy tail. Ban all guns. I am a bored little troll.

Didn't read the article, but thought the headline was pretty farking funny.

2002-01-25 06:37:05 PM  
Hah. Nice filter.
2002-01-25 06:47:26 PM  
Well of course you Americans have to increase your spending on border patrols... Us Canadians are planning a surprise attack any moment now!

We are pulling out the big gun (err guns?)... Our war chariots will destroy all of America! Muhahhahaha!!!


I am sorry that "Cakewalk12" had enough time to escape his straitjacket and type this message. We will make the bindings tigher next time.

True story: J. Edgar Hoover, in addition to being a flaming transvestite, was anal about the format of reports submitted by his underlings, and insisted on total loyalty. One deputy director submitted a report on foreign incursions, but set the margins on his pages to 1/2" instead of 1". Hoover wrote "watch the borders" on it and sent it back. The properly dominated deputy called in 3,000 agents and posted them to stake out the entire length of the US-Canada and US-Mexico frontiers. Then Hoover treated him to a hummer, or something.
