(Some Guy)   Logan, Utah mayor incorrectly quoted as using the off-color statement "damndest". Newspaper apologizes. Also recants reporting mayor's use of the word "poopy".   ( divider line

Well, I'll be jiggered.

Then turned over and farked up the ass until I cry like a schoolgirl.
2002-02-05 02:58:03 PM  
Poopy. Heh.
2002-02-05 02:58:12 PM  
Good job on the spelling fix. Didn't think I'd notice it, eh?
2002-02-05 03:00:36 PM  
Damndest? What farking bullshiat feces mouthed farking asshole would use language like that for shiat sakes? I'm farking offended dammit.
2002-02-05 03:03:32 PM  
Lord Jesus, that's all kinds of wrong!

Look, since the Molympics are starting this Friday, you all have to learn the appropriate Utah Interjection to use...the all-purpose cry of dismay Behind the Zion Curtain is:

"Oh My Heck!"

France goes on the offensive!
2002-02-05 03:09:49 PM  
Mayor brings out 2x4 with nail sticking out....

France again surrenders.

All is normal.

What's wrong with the word "Poopy"?
2002-02-05 03:15:31 PM  
Oh shucks! Terrorists have bombed the Olympic games!

Who knows the lyrics to Wierd Al's 'Amish Paradise'?

Good thing I don't live there.
I'd be on Utah's deathrow for vulgarity.

Isn't Utah the same place which 70% of the people are Mormons? What more do you expect?
2002-02-05 03:34:19 PM  
Sometimes I'm so embarassed to live here.
2002-02-05 03:40:41 PM  
I was trying to look up the word 'darndest' for an offensive meaning but I couldn't find anything. I was hoping the thread would explain what off-colored statement they were talking about. Thanks for pointing out what should have been obvious. Wow, glad I haven't been to Utah in a while.

so remember,

in Utah it is bad to bust a cap in somebody's butt.

it is worse to bust a cap in somebody's darn butt.
2002-02-05 03:43:18 PM  
whoops, make that damn butt.

is it still just bad to bust a cap in a darn butt.
2002-02-05 03:48:31 PM  
Heh, I'm just happy one of the links I submitted made it. :)
2002-02-05 03:58:30 PM  
grizzlyjohnson, I have to agree.
Sometimes I am also so very embarrased to live in Utah.

Look on the bright side. We are not in Idaho, a state whos only purpose is to make people from Utah feel better.

My daughter was reprimanded in kindergarten for saying poop.

She wasn't using it as an explitive, she was just explaining to the teacher why she was late coming in from recess.

Kids say the damndest things!

They're only words, for crying out loud.
2002-02-05 04:20:29 PM  
Jeepers, that filthy man. Golly whiz-bang shucks.

Also, what did the proofreader of the paper think it actually said?
2002-02-05 04:22:24 PM  
Oh my freakin heck! <-----super mormon swearing

It rules living in utah, you never run out of things to make fun of.
2002-02-05 04:35:45 PM  
Hehehehe, Goatslayer, I guess that's a better way to look at it.
2002-02-05 05:19:29 PM  
It can be just as ridiculous up here in New England where offensive sayings like "cripes" and "jeezum crow" can be heard at any local Grange meeting.
2002-02-05 05:45:38 PM  
Mad Ogre-
Your lucky Utah sucks so bad or you would fall off Idaho and end up in the Gulf.
2002-02-05 05:52:38 PM  
That might not be that bad after Friday. (when the 2002 games start)
2002-02-05 08:02:47 PM  
Silly mayor. He's so incorrigible.
2002-02-05 08:38:24 PM  
We need new cuss words. The old ones have lost their punch.

Half, I see your from Pokey. Not a bad town if you have to stop for gas between Island Park and Salt Lake. I lived there for about 6 weeks for a project... Well, actually I lived in Blackfoot and worked in Pokey.

I especially loved the free taters they give away in Blackfoot. I thought it was really cool carrying my free giant spud home... then it was even more cool when the farking farm truck overloaded with fresh picked spuds decided to spill about a 1000 pounds worth right in front of me... sending me and my Yamaha into a farking ditch.

For some reason, I have always hated Idaho and baked potatos ever since then.

This was a very true story... It totally farked up my CHERRY RD400 Daytona Special and took about 6 weeks to heal my leg. To add insult to injury, a Sheriff pulled up and insisted on giving me a breathalizer lets and when it turned out Negative - he left! I had to call a damned ambulance on my cell phone because my ankle was shattered.
I had someone take the bike home for me... a cousin of an inlaw. The tow truck that arrived said the only way he would move my bike would be to hook a chain to it and drag it.

Or, what about the time when the gas station in blackfoot closed the pumps (at 6:30PM) and locked the door when I pulled up to get some gas? Evidently they didn't like the look of a stranger because when I got back on my bike and started leaving, they reopened for the old farking farmer that pulled up. Nice. (This was 2 days before my crash.)

You meet the nicest people in Idaho.

Fark Idaho.

Goatslayer & Grizzlyjohnson:

What part of Utah do you guys live in? I'm up here in Logan going to school and freezing my nuts off. =)

It was kinda surprising to see this place get mentioned on Fark, and I haven't even heard about this stuff from the local news here.
2002-02-06 01:17:39 AM  
heh... imagine that... little Logan gets mentioned in Fark. I think the devil just got hit in the face w/ a snowball. even though i'm living here going to school, i don't think i'll ever get used to that phrase "oh my heck"... i may be mormon, but some things are just wrong on any level you look at it.
2002-02-06 08:18:50 AM  
Sorry, I'm an old USU grad m'self, just slipped back to see what was going on locally... :)
