As long as she doesn't hit on her that is OK.

Paging Jay Leno...
 
2005-09-16 06:12:01 PM  
That's not funny.

Not even hurricane not funny. Regular not funny.
 
2005-09-16 06:12:21 PM  
We here at fark don't dance around the issue
 
2005-09-16 06:12:56 PM  
Oh, I get it. Because she is a lesbian.
 
2005-09-16 06:13:18 PM  
one bad joke could have them swamped with complaints.
 
2005-09-16 06:13:22 PM  
BECAUSE SHE'S A LESBIAN, GET IT???!?!?!?!!
 
2005-09-16 06:13:29 PM  
It's hilarious because she's teh ghey!!111dingleberries

Wait, no, it's really stupid.

Having done TF briefly, I can't imagine the other headlines for this story that could have been worse.

26 seconds... damn you john_frink!
 
2005-09-16 06:14:46 PM  
Wow. Not really even funny at all. Like this post.
 
2005-09-16 06:14:47 PM  
You mean Intentionally Unfunny Headline of the Day...
 
2005-09-16 06:15:07 PM  
Too bad she didn't go down there with a couple of her lesbian friends...nothing like a bunch of dikes to hold off floodwaters...

/I'm here all week...
 
2005-09-16 06:15:08 PM  
I hate both of them. But I hate DeGeneres more.
 
2005-09-16 06:15:46 PM  
Let's be honest. Is there really anything on the idiot box worth giving an award to? It is like giving one steaming pile of shiat an award for stinking less than the others.
 
2005-09-16 06:15:47 PM  
If only she were bi, for the sake of a trifecta.
 
2005-09-16 06:16:44 PM  
"on" Katrina ...

or "in" Katrina?
 
2005-09-16 06:16:52 PM  
Celebrities are so much more.. insightful than everybody else.
 
2005-09-16 06:16:56 PM  
I'm stunned there's backlash over this. I laughed heartily. Good job submitter.


/swears I'm not the submitter
 
2005-09-16 06:20:32 PM  
"Hit on" would be unintentionally funny. "Touch on"? Meh.

I agree. Makes me pee a little..... but just a little.
 
2005-09-16 06:23:32 PM  
Why is this funny? I'm pretty sure I read in the paper the two (Katrina and Ellen) were engaged and planning a cape cod wedding. Hell This IS Massachusetts. Where things that were illegal and immoral are now state law. I personally don't think its gonna last. One of the two is gonna blow herself out this weekend.
 
2005-09-16 06:26:16 PM  


/old PS, got 5th
 
2005-09-16 06:26:32 PM  


Let's see, what else is in the news these days. Oh, did you hear that Bill Clinton is a HORNDOG?!?!?! OMG! And Bob Dole..is he OLD, or what? Jeez. And that George Bush, man, what an idiot.
 
2005-09-16 06:27:07 PM  

Good job submitter!
 
2005-09-16 06:27:07 PM  
You know what's so wrong about lesbians? If there are two women, who has the penis?

Good one!

Clearly, farkers' taste in humor is far too sophisticated to even chuckle at good punnery.

after all, this is the website that made mustard guy famous. yep, only tasteful humor here.

tv_news_guy: Hell This IS Massachusetts. Where things that were illegal and immoral are now state law.

Go back to New Hampshire. I hear Bob Smith is having a good old-fashioned necktie party for some darkies who were scaring the dogs on his porch.
 
2005-09-16 06:36:42 PM  
Darkies in New Hampshire? orrinbloguy? There's not even a good dark beer to be had in New Hampster.
 
2005-09-16 06:43:34 PM  
not funny.
 
2005-09-16 06:43:42 PM

Thumbs up on the headline. Homosexuality is hysterical. As are women, poor people, black people, hispanic people, handicapped people, brain-dead people, religious people, immigrants, midgets, and clowns.

/asshole
 
2005-09-16 06:50:20 PM  
Ellen to touch on Katrina? OMG, I am so NOT surprised.
 
2005-09-16 06:50:38 PM  
i think people with their panties in a bunch over this are even funnier than the headline itself.
 
2005-09-16 06:52:48 PM  
Ellen DeGeneres doesn't care about straight people.
 
2005-09-16 06:57:29 PM  
Kali76 wins.. we can close this thread now. Please

Entourage, but it's really not tv, its HBO.
 
2005-09-16 06:58:52 PM  
well, it was her fault anyway.

/ok, so Snopes says "No"
//but I say YES!

2005-09-16 07:01:03 PM  
What, as opposed to touching on Bush?

/too easy?
 
2005-09-16 07:01:18 PM

wow and Bush took the blame anyway. what a stand up guy he is.
 
2005-09-16 07:04:39 PM  
Is this Lesbian Day on Fark?
 
2005-09-16 07:11:30 PM  
God already allows one awards show to promote the homosexual agenda, Robertson declared. But clearly He will not tolerate such sinful behavior to spread beyond the Tonys.

OK that's it.

Someone needs to kick this guy's ass...
 
2005-09-16 07:12:23 PM  
I am a big fan of Ellen DeGeneres. I don't like her standup, and I've never found her that terribly entertaining, but she's banging Portia DeRossi, and that deserves some respect, and a little bit of envy.
 
2005-09-16 07:23:02 PM  
tracheattack:

Robertson also noted that the last time Degeneres hosted the Emmys, in 2001, the September 11 terrorism attacks took place shortly before the ceremony.

This is the second time in a row that God has invoked a disaster shortly before lesbian Ellen Degeneres hosted the Emmy Awards, Robertson explained to his approximately one million viewers. America is waiting for her to apologize for the death and destruction that her sexual deviance has brought onto this great nation.


Cunnilingus will be the death of America.

Then other than the banging part HOW are you a big fan?
 
2005-09-16 07:32:29 PM  
That doesn't hold a candle to the classic Rosie O'Donnell headline. (pops)
 
2005-09-16 07:36:28 PM  
Didn't anyone hear? Elen Degeneres died!

Authorities found her face down in Ricki Lake.

*baZING!*

Can you post the actual headline?

Yeah, you hit the major ones. Well, except women, they're not inherently funny. Hence comedians like Ellen.
 
2005-09-16 07:46:30 PM  
Rosie weds longtime girlfriend, slams Bush

There ya go Webgrunt
 
2005-09-16 07:46:45 PM  
I like Ellen.
her sitcom got really lame after all of the lesbian preaching but she has completely redeemed herself with the talk show.
I find her funny.

Thank you, it was well worth it.
 
2005-09-16 08:27:00 PM  
Emmy host DeGeneres to touch on Katrina and goes homo to Portia de Rossi, smelling like pussy, who then proceeds to slap the shiat out of the cheating biatch.
 
2005-09-16 08:32:03 PM  
It's not that lesbians hate dick, they just hate what it's attached to.
 
2005-09-16 09:07:33 PM  
What the hell? How many lesbian stories have been on Fark the past couple of days?
 
2005-09-16 09:32:09 PM  
What a terrible headline. I am offended and slightly aroused.
 
2005-09-16 09:36:52 PM  
Rarely are headlines unintentionally anything.
 
2005-09-16 10:51:22 PM  
Maybe she'll apologise for causing the hurricane.
 
2005-09-16 11:17:09 PM  
Pat Robertson is just.... wow. I can just see him a the pearly gates, and Peter going 'Sure, cmon in pat' and then slamming them in his face, then Ashton kutcher jumping out all like 'You got Punked!!!'
 
2005-09-16 11:57:45 PM  
Well, that's why Ellen was banned from Holland. She couldn't keep her fingers out of the dikes

/rim shot
 
2005-09-17 12:12:31 AM  
I know that Katrina and the Waves sang "Walking on Sunshine", but for whatever reason after I read the headline, "Come on Eileen" came into my head.

// got nuthin.

Fook: Pat Robertson is just.... wow. I can just see him a the pearly gates, and Peter going 'Sure, cmon in pat' and then slamming them in his face, then Ashton kutcher jumping out all like 'You got Punked!!!'


I'd take my own life to see THAT.
 
2005-09-17 12:29:23 AM  
She is just and ugly, unfunny, ugly woman.
 
2005-09-17 12:32:09 AM  
well.......religous people are kinda funny.
 
2005-09-17 12:41:51 AM  
Katrina has worn out the entire country. Now she won't even return phone calls.
 
2005-09-17 12:43:07 AM  
Mildy amusing headline and The Great Mutato, you're uglier just for making that comment.
 
2005-09-17 01:20:34 AM  
Too bad she didn't go down there with a couple of her lesbian friends...nothing like a bunch of dikes to hold off floodwaters...

Minus1Kelvin said "go down" heh, heh, yeah... go down!

psssst... that site is like The Onion of entertainment news.

I concur.
 
2005-09-17 04:16:14 AM  
The headline would have been funnier with the addition of "...The Waves unavailable for comment".

/Can anyone name a "Wave"?
 
2005-09-17 07:38:36 AM  
Ellen, fisting Katrina, on the otherhand might get me chuckling to the theme of the Matlock soundtrack. Unfortunatelty, this does not.
 
2005-09-17 08:38:28 AM  
"If there are two women, who has the penis?"
Whoever had it last, I suppose......
 
2005-09-17 03:23:00 PM  
/Can anyone name a "Wave"?

Kimberley Rew was the guitarist and the songwriter in the
Waves (even before Katrina joined.) I know this because of the Robyn Hitchcock connection.
