Just not enough Fb- references here any more. I wish the squirrel would go away so I could start to miss it.
2006-02-10 02:01:38 PM  
I'm glad I'm not the only one who misses the Fb- cliche.
2006-02-10 02:05:23 PM

Please don't hit me....

Fb- is a rapist. Oh, and he's my father.
2006-02-10 02:12:07 PM  
YES! an fb- greenlight!

Round round get around

Get around round round I get around
From town to town
Get around round round I get around
I'm a real cool head
Get around round round I get around

/he's my dad too
2006-02-10 02:18:36 PM  
It would be funnier, if fb- was not so cranky. Everbody should just get off his lawn.

Comic genius, gentlemen. I applaud you.

It's the negative ion of Farkbullshiatium, an element of the Lanthanide series.

How does pregnancy = instability?? They know when the baby is due and how much time she will be off. They don't know how long Woodruff will be out.

I just love people who think pregnant women can't work. That is how I paid for my house!
2006-02-10 02:24:14 PM  
Moseys off? Yeah baby, I am a pimp!
2006-02-10 02:25:44 PM  
How does pregnancy affect the news? Is she going to hold the crew ransom and demand chocolate covered pickles on live air?
2006-02-10 02:27:51 PM  
Snarky_Chique: How does pregnancy = instability??

Because a normal woman is like a primed nuclear bomb, and a pregnant woman is like a primed nuclear bomb with a monkey with a hammer tied to it?

Snarky_Chique: How does pregnancy = instability?? They know when the baby is due and how much time she will be off.

Oh goodness. Done had been one doesn't mean you lived with one.

man: "honey why are you sitting on the floor crying?" (for 20 minutes)
baby factory: "We are out of peanut butter."
man: "ummmm we can get more..."
baby factory: "Go to Hell! I know that!"

(my step-mother told me that one about her when she was prego)
2006-02-10 02:36:27 PM  
Heh, I like her. This week a reporter finished a story on the five bladed razor by saying the company's next new product was already in development. When they cut back to Vargas, she smirked and said "six blades?"
2006-02-10 02:38:12 PM  
Mosey: baby factory: "We are out of peanut butter."

Wow, my wife doesn't have have to be pregnant to freak out over peanut butter.
2006-02-10 02:38:24 PM  
Whoa.. fb- come back.

Something for us old schoolers, yo.
2006-02-10 02:39:21 PM  
Fb-? Ah... the good ol' days!
2006-02-10 02:55:06 PM  
My first greenlight was a fb- headline.
2006-02-10 03:14:38 PM  
...and I wrote the last fb- headline to be greelighted before this one
2006-02-10 03:15:35 PM  
"greelighted"?? Geez.

/looks for his missing "n"
2006-02-10 03:24:26 PM  
Wow. What a great throwback to the glory days of old!
2006-02-10 03:41:07 PM  
Two Fb- headlines in a month. Going back to the old look of Fark is the only logical next step.

/not still bitter about the change
2006-02-10 04:02:08 PM  
Just make her wear a "World News Tonight" Baby on Board T-shirt. That will solve the problem.
2006-02-10 04:29:06 PM  
I checked the FarQ, and it says nothing about Fb-. What about it?
2006-02-10 04:39:40 PM  
Where did Fb- go, anyway?

And do you remember when someone got a picture of Fb- holding 2 beers and it got greenlit as a photoshop contest?

That was great.

Unfortunately, almost all of the pictures are gone now.
2006-02-10 04:42:47 PM  
Gosling: I checked the FarQ, and it says nothing about Fb-. What about it?

Well, son... a long time ago, a rude and very prolific (in terms of posting) Farker named Fb- submitted a headline that went something along the lines of:

Cindy Crawford is pregnant.

And it grew into a headline cliche whenever someone became pregnant or was outed for their sexual escapades.

Quite some time ago, Fb- up and left. I think he said he got sick of asking Drew to unban him, but I'm not sure.
2006-02-10 04:44:06 PM  
Ah crap. My last post got censored. Because whenever you say "Fb-" followed by "is the father" it gets removed.

That phrase should follow "Cindy Crawford is pregnant."
2006-02-10 05:47:58 PM  
You noobs didn't miss anything. He (or whoever was posing as him) was an AttentionWhoreTrollTool who got desperater the more Farkers grew wearier. One day he was pwn3d by Squinth. The cliche's as fresh as AYB.
2006-02-10 06:00:56 PM  
Maybe they can coax Peter Jennings out of retirement for a few weeks.

Oh, wait. Damn.
2006-02-10 06:01:28 PM  
Continued unfunny cliche. Submitter can die in a housefire.
2006-02-10 06:01:53 PM  
You know, there's this new guy named 5uperman who makes vicious insults (and espouses a right-wing viewpoint and sometimes claims to be a hardcore Christian). The link provided by Peaceboy reminded me of him.

I wonder if they're one and the same.
2006-02-10 06:03:07 PM  
2006-02-10 06:03:30 PM  
I kinda missed the Fb- cliche. Now if we could just do something about Ackbar.
2006-02-10 06:04:32 PM  

Never saw that before before, pretty amusing. "WTF I served in the armed forces you hippie terrorist lover!" "What unit?" "Uh..."
2006-02-10 06:06:06 PM  
Maybe they'll film the birth to get better ratings.

2006-02-10 06:06:25 PM  
Cindy Crawford is pregnant.

I thought it was Elizabeth Hurley, and that the headline said something about himself being the father...
2006-02-10 06:09:08 PM  
john_frink: I thought it was Elizabeth Hurley, and that the headline said something about himself being the father...

I think you're right about it being Elizabeth Hurley. Also, I did include the part about him being the father in my post, but the filter removes that phrase now.

They really should unfilter it, since it's so old and unused these days.
2006-02-10 06:09:12 PM  
ABC should just hire Jon Stewart and/or Stephen Colbert and have done with it. Power to the fake news people!

\I'm sure that "this is wonderful and life-affirming news" was her boss's SECOND reaction
\\first would have been MOTHERFARKER!

2006-02-10 06:10:57 PM  
Rumor has it that the real name of Fb- is Samuel Clemens.

/Not only is that cliche really old, but it lasted only a few days
//Anyone remember that?
2006-02-10 06:15:51 PM  
Gone the way of SLAYERSWINE, MyTwoCents,and Harmonia I suppose...
2006-02-10 06:16:02 PM  
Well, atleast "ManThatHurts" phrased the question right, what IS Fb-? Was it a man? Was it a woman?

Was it a loser who lives(lived) in St. Croix and made up stories in #fark about his exploits with drunk tourists?
2006-02-10 06:16:04 PM  
elchip: //Anyone remember that?

Watch out elchip

Nostalgia is the sick, twisted emotion that makes people still listen to Andy Williams.

I really miss the w00t! Party Guy.
