I don't even know where to begin with this one......I'd like to think the tagline is satire but....
2004-09-24 02:44:47 PM  
Uh, shouldn't it be spelled: sequiturs

More WWF news (sad): Big Boss Man, Ray Traylor, died. A fellow farker submitted the story, but it wasn't greenlighted.
2004-09-24 07:47:03 PM  
its the World Wildlife Foundation or something.

Thats why the World Wrestling Federation had to change their name to World Wrestling Entertainment. Cuz the Wild Life people sued them.

just makin sure ..... WWF they dont mean WWE......

...... okay im done.

And today they discovered a 17ft. 2,000 lb great white shark in the Cape Cod area.

In order to win you have to be pinned under 50 people and set on fire, rather than just pinned by one for 3 seconds.

beat ya to the punch Gibb.

..yes i know that makes me more pathetic
2004-09-24 07:49:34 PM  
First class or Economy?
2004-09-24 07:49:58 PM  
It's not satire... the World Wrestling Federation lost in court and ceased using the name... they're now the WWE. The WWF is the World Wildlife Foundation (or something similar).

That sucks about Big Boss Man though.
2004-09-24 07:50:16 PM  

Yea, that is too bad. He was definitely one of the better people in the WWF/WWE.
2004-09-24 07:50:23 PM  
*note to Gibb try reading the farking article first
/disregard previous notes...
2004-09-24 07:50:42 PM  
What those sharks need are frickin lasers... watch how many boats go trawling in their water when the sharks cut 'em in two and then suck out the tasty citizens in its belly.

2004-09-24 07:53:10 PM  
some societies actually eat shark parts, so this ins't all to surprising
2004-09-24 07:53:46 PM  
I always thought that species became endangered because of the policies of the evil western world, especially the US.
2004-09-24 07:53:50 PM  
lol Gibb, see the third post in this thread. I knew that was going to happen, so I tried to prevent embarassment.
2004-09-24 07:56:16 PM  
RIP, Big Boss Man
2004-09-24 07:56:40 PM  
Speaking of random fights, anyone read the "Pit Bull vs. Raccoon" post from Best of Craig's List? Pretty good shiat. Sorry for my mad poor HTML skillz:
2004-09-24 07:57:16 PM  
Dammit, that was supposed to be a link.
2004-09-24 07:59:04 PM  
Yeah doccm9, I knew I was getting ahead of myself, but still a bit light-headed from that first beer after donating blood.

/Give blood, save a life, get a buzz off your beer like you were back in high school!

And still no protection for this fakring thing

If it wasn't horrendous enough, its throat is a big sphincter!
2004-09-24 08:00:44 PM  
It's WWE.

Get the F out.
2004-09-24 08:01:37 PM  
BearToy, is it wrong that that thing is giving me wood? You get the mouth and the rim all in one shot.

/going fishing
2004-09-24 08:01:45 PM  
what the hell is that??
2004-09-24 08:03:09 PM  
BearToy, that thing looks like it has a couple of balls in its mouth, besides the hideous sphincty.
2004-09-24 08:05:33 PM  
SpaceHerpe, I bet it swallows.

/Need to find my rod (uh-huh, he said rod) and reel
2004-09-24 08:08:21 PM  
Not witty.
2004-09-24 08:08:48 PM  

Yikes! I never noticed its mouth scrotum before.

[body shudder]
2004-09-24 08:15:17 PM  
Yay, my second approved link!
And the second time I mispelled something in a headline!

/The Drew giveth the greenish light and the Drew layeth the smack downeth upon me by not fixing my spelling error.

PS WWF is correct
PPPS My other thought for a headline was "The WWF's newest bad boy, Humphead(a southern wrasseler), calls out band Great White", but strained the limits of even my ability to stomach puntastic malaprops.
2004-09-24 08:15:48 PM  
Speaking of which Big Boss Man died today. Yet another 40 something ex wrassler who suddenly drops dead of an enlarged heart. That makes what? 27?
2004-09-24 08:17:07 PM  
"...but(it) strained..."

Big Boss man goes in the cage, cage goes in the water, Big Boss Man goes in the water. Shark's in the water, our shark.

Great White = Dick Cheney's SS code name.

Dear China,

The World is not your f'kn menu, nor does it exist to grind into soup to make you sport wood. Please stop making every animal on this planet your new delicacy. Eat cockroaches, there's lots of them.


The Rest Of The World.
2004-09-24 08:58:28 PM  
Yeah, that's real fine expensive gear you brought out here, Mr. McMahon. 'Course I don't know what that bastard shark's gonna do with it, might eat it I suppose. Seen one eat a rockin' chair one time.
2004-09-24 09:04:59 PM  
You can be stopped form using a name in a completely unrelated industry because the name has words whose first letters form an acronym which is the same as a company in a COMPLETELY UNRELATED FIELD? How is that possible? Even if a 3 letter acronym could be trademarked, I thought trademarks don't extend across industries excep tin special cases where the product also extends across industries. For example, I could sell horses under the name Trojan, so long as I didn't sell condoms as well.
2004-09-24 10:23:40 PM  
Great White needs to be protected. But so does Dokken and The Scorpions.
2004-09-24 10:26:44 PM  

In order to win you have to be pinned under 50 people and set on fire, rather than just pinned by one for 3 seconds.

This definitely wins the thread.

For Farkers complaining about the headline :


1. Lacking quickness of perception or intellect.
2. Characterized by a lack of intelligence or sensitivity: an obtuse remark.


Function: noun
Definition: a logical conclusion from the premises; a logical consequence.

Soooooo, the headline, although really off the mark, would be right by these definitions. I assume, like me, the headline writer is a fan of the "Zippy the Pinhead" comic. the headline is a "non-sequitur". This comes from the file of more than you need to know.

2004-09-25 12:08:09 AM

/idiot submitter gave me braincramps

As to the article itself, I have to put in a plug for responsible reef keeping.

I have a saltwater aquarium, and I learned a lot from a fellow keeper about how fish are captured. Some should never be sold. The powder blue tang is gorgeous and looks great in your tank, but for every one that makes it to a pet shop, 50 died along the way, and your pet one will be dead in a year.

Captive bred fis, corals that are propagated - keep the reefs alive people!
