Shenanigans/fun with search engines. Submitter found a fun flaw in the shopping cart to play with. Another example is here
2005-08-26 10:34:58 AM  
Um they must have fixed it. I searched for "Poker Chips" from the main page and got nothing but poker stuff.

Here is French. But I get it! Wal-mart sells Bibles. That's right, Bibles as a good and the most monotonous, and labels it with the heart, not an inverse relation to cap your impulse was an Old Person of floggings and when we cannot perish from the devil

Sounds like a must read.

The bars of West Hollywood, Calif., have always played host to a fair share of life-sucking monsters, but until now that's been mostly metaphoric. After three prime cuts of gay male beef turn up filleted and drained of blood, Sheriff Clive Anderson, Coroner Becky O'Brien, and City Manager Pamela Burman are forced to the realization that something possibly not human has taken up residence in Boys' Town-something with more than the usual taste for male flesh. Fortunately, Becky's college pal Chris Driscoll is something of an expert on serial killers, but when she calls him in for a consult she is startled to find that he hasn't aged a day in 10 years. When she accidentally stumbles over him napping in his coffin, he lets her in on his little secret: "Yep, I'm a vampire!" He also informs her that the serial killer is a rogue vampire and that she and Sheriff Anderson are going to need to think about some unorthodox crime-fighting techniques. Exciting and very, very funny, Bite the Boys is a rollicking black comedy in which the crime-fighting community and the undead community create an uneasy alliance to stop a monster!

Best Selling Fiction books sold at WalMart.

FTW are you noobs smoking?

I'm not getting Bibles at every search, not even for the searches mentioned in this thread.

What are you scare mongers pushing now?
2005-08-26 10:37:02 AM  
beats me, i searched and got:

2005-08-26 10:37:19 AM  

search for "asshat" and you'll get some nice hits.

That's pretty funny.

"Casino Chips" and "poker chips" both bring up: The Official U.s. Casino Chip Price Guide. Sorry submitter, no cookie for you. Props on the greenlight, though.

Right on the money! I searched for "Hillary Clinton" in that category and it bame back with... Bibles!

Imagine that!

/Nice troll job, submitter.

Hey, I just wanted to make damn sure they sole some satanic items, just to balance the scale a bit. 10000/1 is still way Pat Robertson...but then again, Wal*Mart is trying to convert their liberal shopping base to Crazyianity.
2005-08-26 10:38:04 AM  
It's fixed now, folks.
2005-08-26 10:38:18 AM  

Looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster is wrapped around her midsection getting a little Satanic Slit.

You know that's a dude in the pic, right?

Walmart has nothing on

I mean, you can buy anal douche from Amazon.
2005-08-26 10:38:39 AM  
I searched for poker chips and got books about poker.
2005-08-26 10:39:12 AM  
This reminds me of the search function on years ago. If you searched for "pointers in C" the programming kind you'd get "A hand in the bush, the art of vaginal fisting".
2005-08-26 10:39:17 AM  
Can you immagine this coming up in the next executive sales meeting:

"Well it appears that on fridays we have a large spike in sales of poker chips, bibles, and books about boobs."

/great, now fark is supporting sales for megalomart

I love the bible. Even the New Testament was written by random guys a century after Jesus's death. How the Hell do we know the guy said even half of what they claim he did?

And lets not start on the Old Testament.........

Civil_War2_Time: Looks like the Flying Spaghetti Monster is wrapped around her midsection getting a little Satanic Slit.

While the position makes it a little hard to tell (and the fact that it's a drawing,) I'm fairly certain that that's a guy.


1) Guys in the middle ages often had longer curly hair (or at least depicted as such) than today.
2) The guy appears to be an angel or demon, which are almost always depicted with male features.

Still takes you to bibles.

Weird. I searched for poker chips and got...

Poker chips.
2005-08-26 10:41:03 AM  
As a struggling writer, I find that Hollywood Vampire story synopsis offensive in the extreme.

Who the hell fronted the moeny to pay for that publicshing run?

And, BTW, the Sheriff doesn't investigate murders in Los Angeles, The Los Angeles PD (Homicide Division) does. Nice research.

Go to>>search for casino or poker chips>>get casino or poker chips
that's what i got.

and why would anyone search for poker chips in the 'book' section anyway...

if you look at the string they searched for Casino Chips, not poker chips. submitter is either stupid or doesn't know to user a search form. *shrugs*
2005-08-26 10:42:36 AM  
I think this has to do with manipulating what certain things mean in the link. The first variable passed is a number representing what was searched for and/or in what catagory. The second variable represents where to go to if the current search doesn't match. Someone just played a bit with the variables to make something funny and striking. (This is my speculation at least.
2005-08-26 10:42:42 AM  
And, as my typos from hell can attest, I am struggling for a reason. Thank goodness for editors with patience.

Submitter is a moron.

Learn how to use the search function properly and NEVER submit another article to fark!​h_query= poker+chips&Continue.x=0&Continue.y=0&Continue=Find&ics=20&ico=0
2005-08-26 10:44:08 AM  

thanks - I needed a good laugh. well done.
2005-08-26 10:44:14 AM  

"Check the url:​asino+ch ips

Note the "416096"? That is the "Bible" catagory. Any search will only be in that catigory, and when it's not found, you just get generic bibles.

Clever troll."

my heads been hurting since i read that
2005-08-26 10:44:59 AM  
I dont understand what the big deal is here - i only get bibles if i search for bibles. i tried typing in poker, and i get poker. Stereos, i get stereos. Maybe they've fixed it already, or maybe dsmo is right, they did scam the admins

votegreen has it figured out. If you do a REAL search, you get a different URL.

Submitter is full of crap. This is a hoax.
2005-08-26 10:46:16 AM  
DAmn....Bibles are expensive.
2005-08-26 10:46:39 AM

Not that there is any thing wrong with that.
The FSM goes both ways.

Weird, search Entire Site for:
karl rove is the devil
and you get vacuums and 3,741 other results.

search Entire Site for:
pat robertson is the devil
and you get 1 result, some pussy-ass folk music cd by the young fogies.

Coincidence?? I think not. As it turns out, Pat Robertson is the devil, and Karl Rove is his man-servent and plays the spoons in his band.
2005-08-26 10:51:01 AM  
The "&redirect_query=" is not part of the URL that the site recognizes. Fake URL. Woo!
2005-08-26 10:52:40 AM  
Well, if you have no life and you fark with the HTTP GET parameters on the query string long enough, you can make the Wal-Mart search results look like anything you want.

Besides, even as an atheist, I don't find the fact that Wal-Mart sells bibles to be even remotely concerning or threatening to me. What's the submitters' point, other than to take another opportunity to display personal hatred by bashing a successful company?
