Any other farkers suddenly imagining what Fark Personals would be like?

Even if it was a TF feature, the $5 a month would be worth it for the accompanying thread.

I think I would be afraid of any woman that could speak Klingon. Probably a fatty.
2007-01-05 08:45:09 AM  
I thought you would use lumberjack women to determine sawiness.
2007-01-05 08:45:42 AM

Anyone have a pic with Johnny Depp as the pirate saying "Savvy"?

It's astounding how hard it is to find good pictures of the Kahass sisters.

I think I would be afraid of any woman that could speak Klingon. Probably a fatty.

It has been scientifically proven (Powers & Yakamoto, 2005) that women who speak Klingon have the following characteristics:

- "unique" appearance (fat, moustache, third eye, etc. [in most cases, all of these attributes])
- "unique" standards of personal hygene
- "issues" with members of the opposite sex
- "issues" with members of the same sex
- "issues" with their father
- an unjustified conviction that speaking Klingon makes them somehow unique and "better" than those boring "normies"

In any case, they should be treated like one of those "just-one-of-the-guys" girls... in other words, fellas, run like hell!!!

TFA reminded of the SNL "Sex Hotline for Dorks" skit that had subtitles in Klingon.

"Oh, yeah, call me a herf-herder."
"Have you been a bad hobbit?"

Suddenly the image of that old photoshop contest "o" of the Russian mealhead woman in leather holding up a beer came to mind.

Uh, anyone have the link to the dating site referenced in the headline?

/Surprised that hasn't been asked before now.

/goes off to die in a fire
//hopefully i won't find Fek'lhr and Gre'thor

Women that can speak Klingon make my unit act like a scared turtle.
2007-01-05 09:51:08 AM  
Actually, Diss, it's "Qapla!"

No "Q".

Although, what would NextGen have been without Q?
2007-01-05 09:52:20 AM  
Oops, I left out the apostrophe.

2007-01-05 09:52:47 AM

I see nerd people. Some of them don't even know they're nerds.

/Michael Dorn is hawt.

///or a nerd! (or self-deluded...) *sigh*

Well, they mention Geek2Geek, but there's also Consumating (started by Ben "Internet Rockstar" Brown, but it's not really a dating site.
