excellent!!
 
2005-01-09 10:19:53 AM  
we have a politics tag?

this guy really is earning his florida tag.
 
2005-01-09 10:20:37 AM  
The "guy" is a "gal".

Just sayin'.

palm beach writer finally figures out mentioning fark will boost traffic to an otherwise lame article.

Cool. We're famous.

I saw that Ed Heeney story on the Daily Show. I always wondered what happened to him after that. Keep up the good work, Florida.
 
2005-01-09 10:27:42 AM  
Irony?
 
2005-01-09 10:28:41 AM  
A "gal" who likes the Indigo Girls might as well be a "guy".


/I keed.

I personally liked the article. He poked fun at his home state, while giving the credit for noticing to someone else. I cant give that much credit for anyone here in Boston's Herald/Globe.

Her English is pretty good.

rightmindx

indeed you are correct.

does anybody want to hook me up with a NEBRASKA tag for myself?

Here is a picture of the author, because I know somebody would end up asking for it.

I still think there should be tags for other states. Texas and Utah, for example.

Heeney ran an anti-gay campaign, saying he's not homophobic, but homo-nausic. "The gays have made it difficult for me to shoot pool in Fort Lauderdale," he said.

Yes, many is the time a decent game of pool has been ruined for me by wild, marauding hordes of gays intent on destroying my leisure time.
Damn them and their anti-pool tendencies!
 
2005-01-09 11:23:59 AM  
I was wondering whether that Ed Heeney guy was for real when I saw him on The Daily Show. Now I know!

I saw the same thing. They evidently do their away stories a long time in advance; they didn't have an update. I hope they'll put one in soon.

This isn't a joke ! You know how they are ! They see a couple guys playing with their sticks and balls in public, and they insist on butting in.

Yeah. You never know.... They might gang up on you and hold you down and fix your hair or help you with some personal hygiene or something. Aaaaagh!

The Florida tag was originally introduced during the 2000 "election" fiasco, right?
 
2005-01-09 01:28:23 PM  
Im origonally from Palm Beach Gardens so every time I see that Florida tag it has a special feeling in my heart. I'm just bummed that my summission of Tarzan's house burning down a week after his cat was shot was never greenlighted.
Man, that is a farked up state I come from! :-)
 
2005-01-09 04:40:08 PM  
What does the POLITICS tag look like? Can we have a design contest in honor of this guy's column?
 
2005-01-09 04:42:05 PM  
We need a "South Carolina" tag.
 
2005-01-09 04:44:32 PM  
We need a Rhode Island tag.

I'd hit that.

How about a connecticut sucks! tag? Oh yeah, NOTHING ever happens there. :-)
 
2005-01-09 04:50:00 PM  
Apparently we need a "we need a tag" tag.
 
2005-01-09 04:50:23 PM  
Connecticut does suck...and blow...


Florida will be devestated by locusts by the end of the century.
 
2005-01-09 04:51:05 PM  
Some stories are labeled asinine. Some stories are labeled politics. And some stories are simply labeled Florida.



Drew, is there a Politics tag you're not telling us about? I agree with Vexed Thespian.

Yep, which is why I'm surprised we didn't have an Ohio tag last fall.

You silly boys. Haven't you ever watched a bunch of girls leaning way over a pool table, sticking their butt in your direction, while running their hands up and down a long stick?

That's why I don't play pool. Plus I suck at it.

palm beach writer finally figures out mentioning fark will boost traffic to an otherwise lame article.

Average age of Palm Beach resident is about 198, so its unlikely Fark traffic will increase dramatically.
 
2005-01-09 04:57:54 PM  
wisconsin tag. you know. for random beer/cheese/xxx shop stories (because that's what this state has)

minnesota tag too.

hell, why not just make a pick-a-state tag...

I prefer the term sexy old man, thank you very much.

There's nuthin scarier than GAYS in a pool hall!

All that bending over and hitting of balls with sticks.....breaks my concentration! (Friggin redneck Floridian.)

/Loves gay boys with big sticks....just wish they wanted to love me.....*sigh* Such is life for a fruit fly like me.

Alexandra: Drew, is there a Politics tag you're not telling us about?


We already got one right here --->
 
2005-01-09 05:06:40 PM  
If this item was not given the "Florida" tag, that would be ironic. But if it would have got the "Irony" tag, it would have just been wrong.

What was I saying?
 
2005-01-09 05:08:49 PM  
Best... FLORIDA.... TAG....... EVER.

I live in Florida and play pool but but can't recall a night of billiards being ruined by gay folks. I have had evenings of billiards made more interesting and fight-provoking by stupid 'necks accusing people of being gay for grabbing their girlfriends arses. Makes sense. Ahh, good times.

kittz_cat:
Why do you love gay boys with big sticks? Are you teh ghey or a fag-hag? Is that was TR was talking about, "Speak softly and carry a big stick"?
 
2005-01-09 05:14:05 PM  
Ed Heeney! Almost forgot about him! "Double Intenuandres." Classic! And hooray Florida, long as I'm writin'. Except, of course, for that voting stuff.

3. A Florida newspaper reported more than 100 racing greyhound dogs tested positive for cocaine, but the president of the National Greyhound Association offered an easy explanation: A dog trainer could have had "cocaine on his hands and (when) he brushed the dog with his hand, the drug (went) into the dog." Hello? Not even my mother would believe that.

Makes you wonder why the owner had cocaine and why he and the dogs were not thrown in the slammer. Dont buy that the dogs were innocent. All crackheads say that when they are busted and thrown in the box.
 
2005-01-09 05:20:03 PM  
Wait, slow down! Oh damnit, we passed right by the Delaware tag!

I'm bisexual....so I guess I could be considered teh gay...kinda. I'm a big ole fag-hag though. Ssssilly sssinners...all of them.

wow, what an easy way to write a farking article, copy and paste it from fark.com

i didnt even get away with this shiat in high school, lazy asshole.
 
2005-01-09 05:23:16 PM  
That "gal" needs to go back to journalism school. Damn, that article sucked. Her writing style = lame. Florida, indeed. Also, if another state were to have a tag I think it would have to be Mississippi. Come on, it's Mississippi.

//lives in Mississippi (at least it's not Florida)

5. Dozens of dead or imprisoned Floridians received unemployment benefits after a "glitch when undetected"...

Looks like a glitch "when" undetected by the editor as well.

"Average age of Palm Beach resident is about 198, so its unlikely Fark traffic will increase dramatically."

The youthful Rod Steward has an estate in Palm Beach. Saw him driving his Viper last February (yes, the one an angry ex-employee stole and cracked up.)

/I was heading to the airport from Del Ray and he was going the opposite direction. Unmistakeably him, though.

"Usually, those stories are the best."



Ummm....., nope.
 
2005-01-09 05:28:45 PM  
I'm yours, kittz_cat.

/not really gay
//I have a strange attraction to women that can drink me under the table.
