Q: Kids are looking forward to your new movie.

A: I have a new movie? Really? Michael Moore didn't make it, did he?

mock? that's mocking? really?
2004-09-07 02:02:52 PM  
TsarDony: Combine that with the hot-dog vendor crack, and you're approaching "mocking" territory. Maybe.

I worked as a waiter, a hot dog vendor and a traveling sales monster, but I think my very favorite was being a stenographer.

Watch as the Bushies use this as 'proof' that jobs are available.

Grove farkin' beat Moore to a pulp! He owns his ass!

2004-09-07 02:20:17 PM  
The Bushies talk about Moore far often than any other group of people on the planet.
2004-09-07 02:23:07 PM  
Grover Norquist?
2004-09-07 02:31:22 PM  
Interesting case study here. Let's see if Farkers can turn a softball article about a muppet into a flame war. My money is on the flames a burnin this thread to the ground.
2004-09-07 02:38:50 PM  
I saw Grover pouring French wine into the gutter.
2004-09-07 03:16:00 PM  
I refuse, REFUSE, to argue about the relevancy of a transcript from a muppet's online interview.
2004-09-07 04:13:51 PM  
Aww, go on earthrhino you know you want to ;)

/Fare thee well thread

Someone hit the bottle pretty hard before approving/giving this interview.
2004-09-07 04:36:51 PM  
pmegan, my bad. *hic*
2004-09-07 06:04:14 PM  
Grover thinks Michael Moore might eat him.
2004-09-07 06:04:56 PM  
Elmo is a her? Huh.
2004-09-07 06:05:11 PM  
Ohh oh. This isn't going to be good for anyone.
2004-09-07 06:06:10 PM  
The Muppets were something I dug a LONG TIME AGO...when JIM HENSON was STILL ALIVE...

I don't know what this shiat is...
2004-09-07 06:08:32 PM  

Wake me when Cookie Monster rocks the mic...
2004-09-07 06:08:37 PM  
Well this isnt the muppets, this is Sesame Street. It might not be mocking but it is a jab at him, from a place you wouldnt expect it.
2004-09-07 06:09:04 PM  
Yeah, but what does Yoda think?

/wonders if Yoda was a hot dog vendor too...

2004-09-07 06:10:49 PM  
Maybe if Michael Moore didn't plant his nose squarely up John Kerry's ass, we wouldn't be talking about him so much

/Oscar the Grouch smells better than Moore
2004-09-07 06:10:52 PM  
Well, he sure looks like Mr. Moore.
2004-09-07 06:11:25 PM  
So CTW is really sweeping Bert and Grover under the carpet? And as a send off to Grover they're making this DVD and that's it?

Anyhow has the link to the tear jerking 6 page article about the life and times of Grover? And how he was passed over twice in his job as Sesame?

Meanwhile, the US suffered its 1,000 combat-related death in Iraq today. But, by all means, let's have yet another farking Michael Moore flamewar.
2004-09-07 06:13:49 PM  
Kerrykabob, then we should be talking an awful lot more about Fox News, because they CERTAINLY have their nose squarely up George 'Wrong' Bush's ass.
2004-09-07 06:14:09 PM  

Grover Norquist?

Nice one.
2004-09-07 06:14:13 PM  
Not only do Republicans talk about "9/11" more than anyone else, so much to the point that you'd think Moore was running for President, but none of them have actually seen the film.
2004-09-07 06:15:51 PM  
I've been articles about soldier deaths on boths sides for months but they never make the mainpage. On a lighter note, this interview is so fake. I hope Grover takes legal action against USA Today.
2004-09-07 06:16:05 PM  
Well, the headline mentions Michael Moore, so this will probably hit infinity by the end of the day...
2004-09-07 06:16:20 PM  
Well, the Moore haters won't be able to complain about "9/11" being nominated for best documentary. Now they'll have plenty of time to try and put a positive spin on the record $422 billion deficit.
2004-09-07 06:16:28 PM  
This is more than enough proof that there are jobs out there for the taking.

Happy now?
2004-09-07 06:16:37 PM  
meant to say I've been submitting
/didn't use preview
2004-09-07 06:17:51 PM  

If by "flamewar" you mean, "yet another opportunity to ream the GOP for supporting their asshat President who has lead us into an abyss," then I'd say the answer is "yes."
2004-09-07 06:18:00 PM  
I'm not sure Michael Moore has ever actually come out in support of Mr Kerry, has he?
2004-09-07 06:18:03 PM  
Elmo is a dittohead, just so ya know.

2004-09-07 06:18:50 PM  

worst story ever.

Do you get the feeeling that people are chomping at the bit for a flamewar over the 1k death?

How about the record $422 billion deficit, which the White House is calling a triumph for Bush's economic policy because an estimate in March put it at $55 billion more.
2004-09-07 06:19:29 PM  
now brought to you by the number 1002
2004-09-07 06:20:11 PM  
Even Drudge has the sad news up. Come on, Fark, put up a main page article about this depressing milestone.
2004-09-07 06:20:56 PM  
When just about everyone is voting for what they percieve as the less of two evils because nobody else has a chance to enter the race, you know your system is farked up.
2004-09-07 06:22:25 PM  
Now watch this dream sequence

A: Yes, once I learned that, it got really fun. At first I just drew pictures, but that didn't really cut it.

Same reason I learned ColdFusion after playing with Dreamweaver for a few years...

recipe for getting a fark submission accepted:

find funny story, submit with title that makes a joke at the left (no matter what the article is actually about)
2004-09-07 06:27:31 PM  
Moore is tring to get F9/11 on TV before the election. Doing this makes the movie ineledgeable for an Oscar.
2004-09-07 06:28:23 PM  
right link now​9-06
2004-09-07 06:33:57 PM  
"Um, wow, couldn't care less what a pupet says. But shiat, 1000 soldiers die and no NEWS FLASH, that's just farking stupid."

Yeah really. Just think of all the imaginative and highly original, never before seen comments we're missing.
2004-09-07 06:34:03 PM  
I think Moore, kevthecatslayer, would rather see Bush out of office over an Oscar award. If getting his movie on TV accomplishes that, so be it. He'll give up the Oscar.

Grover... Coincidence?
