I like the lady who answers her own questions:

"No, I don't like it. Do I think it should be available? Yes," M.T. Jaureguizar observed as she filled her tank. "Do I think a gas station is kind of an odd place to have it? Yeah."

"Do I like pumping my own gas? No. Do I want someone inside the gas station to do it? Yes. Will they? No. Does anyone even care what I have to say? No."

I don't really have a choice; I'm an employee," he replied.

When confronted with the contents, though, 'Sal' had to admit the images made him sick.

"What's in there is very disgusting. What you see is disgusting. It's not something to be proud about. I think it shows the U.S. isn't bad about the war. They free a country," he continued in broken English.


What the hell? I saw this guy on local TV and he spoke English just fine.
 
2004-11-09 12:22:56 PM  
I'd love to see that, Just.
 
2004-11-09 12:24:57 PM  
That just makes me sick:(

did they give him subtitles anyways?

Ah good 'ol central Florida. Ok, so that's one copy of Juggs, three tins of Skoal long cut, a Mountain Dew electric orange...

Thank You, Come Again

Who cares? What about freedom of speech? Doesn't the video tend to support the case for the war?
 
2004-11-09 12:57:00 PM  
I guess "Middle Eastern accent" is now referred to as "Broken English" in some journalistic circles.
 
2004-11-09 12:57:13 PM  
I'll bite for one second....

Who cares?

I'm gonna go ahead and guess their families.

/that's all i'm saying
 
2004-11-09 01:04:20 PM  
hey "sal", thanks for being a dick and helping to fark up american - arab relations even more. and its in florida no less, yeah all the other brown folk in the south tip their hat to you, you giant douche.
 
2004-11-09 01:14:44 PM  
This tape should not be sold. Anyone who buys this tape is a twisted asshole who needs to re-evaluate their empty lives and examine why they feel the need to purchase something that they know is just wrong. Further, the Gas station owner and the video supplier need their asses kicked good and hard. Yes, I know, freedom of speech blah-blah-blah. Just because you have the right to be an asshole doesn't mean you're obligated to act on it.
 
2004-11-09 01:53:09 PM  
I stop by that Shell station all the time. I'll give Sal all your regards.
 
2004-11-09 02:16:10 PM  
Actually, give Sal a big "You're not fooling anybody, y'know!" from me.

I'm not sure what I mean by it, but hey.
 
2004-11-09 02:54:36 PM  
It's a documentary about the horrors of war and Saddam's regime. Oh no, not that!

Geez people. Don't like it, don't buy it.

Obviously the local news media in Tampa has nothing better to be doing than censoring footage it doesn't like.
 
2004-11-09 03:06:28 PM  
Do I like to answer my own questions? Yes. Have I seen beaheading videos? Yes. Is answering your own questions possible the next Fark cliche? Maybe.
 
2004-11-09 03:31:57 PM  
...what mtrans said.

"No, I don't like it. Do I think it should be available? Yes," M.T. Jaureguizar observed as she filled her tank. "Do I think a gas station is kind of an odd place to have it? Yeah."


Thank you Mrs. Rumsfeld.

John's off the job for what, 3 minutes, and look what happens.
 
2004-11-09 06:32:43 PM  
Why would you buy something you can see for free on the internets?
 
2004-11-09 06:35:11 PM  
Sal looks....hmmmm......like a......nevermind.
 
2004-11-09 06:36:28 PM  
Does it really matter what farkers think of this? No. Does that stop us from reading each others pointless posts anyway? Certainly not.

2004-11-09 06:37:49 PM  
And the price of gas...so close to the display.

Coincidence?
 
2004-11-09 06:37:53 PM  
Except the first word's not fark.
 
2004-11-09 06:38:54 PM  
Videos like this probably won't be made illegal now that John Ashcroft resigned.

/Not that they should be. Just sayin'.
 
2004-11-09 06:40:04 PM  
I don't understand the point of the article. Is it illegal to sell video tapes in Florida gas stations?
 
2004-11-09 06:40:10 PM  
If someone can steal an election, get his entire country pwn3d on live TV, then trick the terrified population into choosing him for a second term...

...then I guess farking anything goes these days.

/one tank of hi-test, an Old E 40 and a DVD please...
 
2004-11-09 06:47:11 PM  
Fun to watch while filling up the ole SUV?
 
2004-11-09 06:47:16 PM  
What on earth is Ali G doing working at a gas station?
 
2004-11-09 06:48:05 PM  
Shell == Walmart
 
2004-11-09 06:50:07 PM  
a message to action news reporter tracey sieversten :

uh, calm down honey. the dusty, poorly edited dvd no one ever heard of till a week after the election is not the result of some global conspiracy that can be traced to golden corridors of power at Shell headquarters.

sorry if this reel isnt gonna make it on your application to 60 minutes
 
2004-11-09 06:51:08 PM  
Did I read the article? Yes. Do I think answering your own question is good? Yes, at least I get an answer. Do we need a new cliche? Sure, just in time for the holidays as well


/reminded of the video done for MTV about Bill Clinton answering questions about Monica
 
2004-11-09 06:52:51 PM  
They are simply following the inspired lead of our inspiring leader in bypassing traditional media outlets of liberal bias.

I think it makes total sense to put this at a place where gas-guzzlers get their nectar and I am suprised they don't give these out free w.25 gallon fill-ups! This is practically a Karl Rove "get out the vote" special.

Similarly, I was able to purchase anti-sodomy videos at WalMart; only there, the assistant manager's english was broken only by an Arkansan drawl. I did hear something about an "energized base" however.
 
2004-11-09 06:53:12 PM  
It's disgusting thta they sell videos of the behadings. I mean, why pay when they're available to download for free?

/Prepare Hell for my stay.
 
2004-11-09 06:54:08 PM  
Is you related then?

pussycat

What on earth is Ali G doing working at a gas station?

He is pumpin', aiii.
 
2004-11-09 06:57:03 PM  
Odd.

I remember 'Faces of Death' being a hugely popular rental, suddenly people have lost a taste for snuff video?
 
2004-11-09 06:59:35 PM  
Snuff is big on p2p. Why not in oil company's retail outlets.

/it's morally equivalence at it's finest.
/'
 
2004-11-09 06:59:38 PM  
This is the part of the article I don't understand:

"What might be most surprising about the video, however, is who was behind it. The movie was actually produced by two Republicans out of California as part of the campaign propaganda, meant to counter films like Fahrenheit 9/11."

Why is that surprising? It's the first thing that popped into my mind. *shrug*
 
2004-11-09 06:59:55 PM  
yeah, well dissent can be a little ugly sometimes.

/me lives in the neighborhood
 
2004-11-09 07:03:09 PM  
Snuff is big on p2p.

It is?! Where'd you hear that?
 
2004-11-09 07:05:12 PM  
Remember the sienfeld that did the "answering your own questions" thing?

//pointless
 
2004-11-09 07:07:39 PM  
Um, is it unusual that watching that clip made me want to throw up my hands and drop out of journalism school altogether?
 
2004-11-09 07:10:37 PM  
Man, and everyone thought Michael Moore had a tough time getting a distribution deal!
 
2004-11-09 07:10:53 PM  
Mr. Clarence Butterworth

Sorry, The Faces of Death series is fake
 
2004-11-09 07:14:22 PM  
My name is Saleem

But you can caaaaaaaaaaall meeeeeeeeeeeeee Saaaaaaaaal

You can call me Sal

Where were the other two Habibs when "Sal" was being interviewed?

/Al Bundy wants to know.
