Gotta feel sorry for the cop; not only does he get run over, but he gets sent to Detroit Receiving Hospital. He'd be better off just laying on the freeway.
 
2006-08-28 04:31:31 PM
Well you shouldn't be text messaging behind the wheel.
 
2006-08-28 04:37:35 PM
I'm so ashamed that I laughed at that headline
 
2006-08-28 04:45:19 PM
I feel your pain sarty. I did too. Great jorb mitty. How am I supposed to get an aisle seat this late in the day?
 
2006-08-28 04:58:34 PM
I am ashamed that I could read that....

Oh my *freaking gosh*, I just hit a cop!

It'd be nice if submitter knew the difference between a fark headline and A Book Title.

HAHAHAHAHA

Headline of the day.......
 
2006-08-28 05:00:45 PM
*Golf Clap for headline*

But...isn't text messaging while driving a lot like trying to eat soup and drive?

I passed a guy yesterday who was READING THE NEWSPAPER while driving 50 miles an hour. If we hadn't been going in opposite directions, I'd have followed him and gotten all kinds of nasty.

/poor officer

From link submission guidelines...

"Don't capitalize every word like news headlines; write normally."

Tanthalas39,

A little sand in the vagina today?
 
2006-08-28 05:01:47 PM
Why would you admit to that? Lie you stupid kid.
 
2006-08-28 05:02:11 PM
Major Thomb: Damn...why don't they make a phone you can just talk into...

Yeah, I should invent a screwdriver without a cord or a battery.

/I lol'd.

Good one! You really put me in my place with that tired old insult.

Really, though, I realize that it *was* a relatively humorous headline. I just wonder why submitter couldn't grasp the concept. None of the other headlines are capitalized... I think I'll capitalize mine!

/also just likes to point out grammatical mistakes

KentuckyBob: I rear-ended a cop's wife once.

I know a lawyer who got a charge of sodomy reduced to "following too close." Let me know if you need his number.
 
2006-08-28 05:05:43 PM
KentuckyBob Was she 'cuffed at the time?

I believe the more current phrase is "watching a bunch of retards trying to fark a doorknob" :-)

I once was typing an email on my blackberry...

... then I noticed I was going the wrong way down a one way street.
 
2006-08-28 05:06:41 PM
squidloe: Lucky for you, I didn't have any liquids in my mouth when I read your "sand in the vagina" bit. You would have owed me a keyboard. Very, very funny.
 
2006-08-28 05:06:45 PM
Okay, if you hit a cop because you were text messaging while you were driving, what defense do you have when it goes to court?

Kid better sell his car now, he's going to lose his license.
 
2006-08-28 05:06:51 PM
"...Cop" or "...Car"?
 
2006-08-28 05:06:51 PM
I'm for this clown surrendering phone and driving privileges for about a year. Can't wait to hear what comes of the court appearance.
 
2006-08-28 05:07:08 PM
Sorry he got hit, but there isn't anything wrong with texting and driving. Some other people might be too incompetent to do both or know when not to do it, but it's my car and nobody has the right to tell me what to do in my in it.
 
2006-08-28 05:07:24 PM
Shouldn't it be OMFG IJFHAC
 
2006-08-28 05:07:29 PM
I am ashamed to admit this, but I text message when I drive. :(

/needs a ticket to hell, now plz
//telling the truth
 
2006-08-28 05:07:39 PM
I hit a cop once. That sucked. To be fair he was "directing traffic" at night. In the dark. In a dark uniform. no reflective gear.

/chief of police called him a dumbass.
//all cops in houston have to wear reflective gear while directing traffic now, regardless of time of day.
 
2006-08-28 05:07:42 PM
Driving and talking on a cell phone isn't so bad if you are capable of concentrating on more than one thing at a time. Driving and texting, however, that's just criminally stupid. Kid needs to be charged with vehicular assault, 'cause that's what this is.

/once saw a woman driving down the road talking on a cell phone with one hand, applying makeup with the other, and driving with a knee
 
2006-08-28 05:08:06 PM
my in it? dammit
 
2006-08-28 05:09:16 PM
What assclown would admit that?

my thoughts exactly.
 
2006-08-28 05:10:28 PM
Whats sad is how many of us instantly could read "IJHAC"
 
2006-08-28 05:11:45 PM
nobody has the right to tell me what to do in my in it.
What?
Riiight...keep on texting.
 
2006-08-28 05:11:56 PM
As long as you keep it under control, EL_FABREZ, you can do whatever you like in your in it!
 
2006-08-28 05:12:01 PM
I also feel so very, very dirty for laughing at this headline.
 
2006-08-28 05:12:20 PM
And it's EL_FABREZ with the inaugurating troll post for the thread!
 
2006-08-28 05:12:54 PM
What is so farking important that you have to text while driving?

I'm the type that will pull my car over while driving. Yes, I know that I am a damn good driver, I just don't want to get hit while talking on the phone and have the person who hit me and the cop on the scene tell me it was my fault because I was on the phone.

Texting requires too much attention to even attempt while driving.

Tanthalas,

It worked, seeing as how he got the greenlight :)
 
2006-08-28 05:14:02 PM
Best headline of the day award!

LMAO!

/text messaging whilst driving is truly retarded, although I've done it before, but maybe twice, and I used lots of abbreviations.
 
2006-08-28 05:14:04 PM
Huh, just read about a different but similar car accident on mydeathspace.com (which I found through an earlier Fark article about a study to see if people commit suicide so that they can get their 15 minutes of fame in a myspace tibute...)

http://mydeathspace.com/deaths.aspx?ctl00_MainContent_Weblogs1_show=698479ac-8 7a9-46ab-a2a5-faeb3657381a

And what's wrong with watching a monkey fark a football?
 
2006-08-28 05:14:16 PM
Seriously. "No one has the right to tell me what to do [in my own car]".

Actually, they do. They have the right to tell you to operate it in a safe manner so you don't kill the poor family of six on their way to the Sunday matinee.
 
2006-08-28 05:14:36 PM
EL_FABREZ: my in it? dammit

Sweetie, I don't mean to be a biatch but you just said you text while you drive. Obviously life and limb are not of concern so why would you give a shiat about a typo on Fark?
 
2006-08-28 05:14:53 PM
Texting while driving? The stomach churns at the stench of self-importance!
 
2006-08-28 05:14:58 PM
Driving and talking on a cell phone isn't so bad if you are capable of concentrating on more than one thing at a time.

One you're one of those people, right?

Sure you are.
