40below: Great headline.

That's some serious Kudos smitty!

That's funny as hell. I salute you, submitter, you magnificent bastard.

2007-02-16 12:07:51 PM  
Nice, subby, nice.
2007-02-16 12:14:11 PM  
Wow. That was quite a screed, Subby.

I'll throw a +1 in the pot for ya.
2007-02-16 12:20:32 PM  
2007-02-16 12:30:22 PM  
Well played sir.
2007-02-16 12:36:37 PM  
beautiful headline.
2007-02-16 12:46:02 PM  
There is nothing I can say that would add to that headline; in fact my mere presence lowers the beauty of the headline and I shall leave.
2007-02-16 12:50:52 PM  
*golf clap*
2007-02-16 12:51:37 PM  
Smitty wins the thread with the headline. Everybody else can go home.
2007-02-16 12:52:42 PM  

A must see!
2007-02-16 12:52:44 PM  
Agreed. Mr. Submitter FTW
2007-02-16 12:52:53 PM

/i hate when i have to ask

2007-02-16 12:53:37 PM  
+1 for perspective!
2007-02-16 12:53:43 PM  

That is all
2007-02-16 12:54:20 PM  
DAMN. That's one hell of a headline. I think we already have the headline contest winner for '07, gang.
2007-02-16 12:54:56 PM  
Sir Charles, check out Fatal Attraction and come back with your report.
2007-02-16 12:54:57 PM  
I don't get it. What has this got to do with Anna?

/JK, brilliant subby
2007-02-16 12:54:57 PM  
mmmmmm rabbits
2007-02-16 12:55:01 PM  
Wow. Just. Wow.

//Daddy issues?
///I keed
2007-02-16 12:55:02 PM  
It's funny cause it's true.
2007-02-16 12:55:03 PM  
I'm fatally attracted to your headline subby...

/better watch out, sweetheart
2007-02-16 12:55:57 PM  
Is the subby a copywriter? We need more eye catching headlines like this.
2007-02-16 12:56:16 PM  
Tremendous- Awesome headline.

Rabbit boiling is from Fatal Attraction. Glenn Close's repugnant ass is the culprit when Michael Douglas hits it and tries to forget it.
2007-02-16 12:56:20 PM  
I'll see your "pee-pants tart" and raise you a "poopy-pants strumpet."

/good jorb, smitty
2007-02-16 12:57:05 PM  
2007-02-16 12:57:30 PM  
I won't be ignoooored Dan.
2007-02-16 12:57:58 PM  
Joining the +1 chorus for Subby... that was farking brilliant.
2007-02-16 12:58:54 PM  
Sir Charles: okay, whats up with the 'boiling rabbits' thing?

What it did, was slow my social life down for about a month, is what it did. I knew girls like that.
2007-02-16 12:59:00 PM  
M.C. Peepants?

2007-02-16 01:02:03 PM  
Fantastic Headline! A+++++++ Would read again!!1
2007-02-16 01:02:45 PM  
Who could be distracted from seeing ANS's house from space?

still crackin' over that headline too
2007-02-16 01:03:22 PM  
Boiling Rabbits relates to the Movie Fatal Attraction when the crazy lady boiled I think it was his Daughters rabbit.

"Lisa Nowak had been scheduled to be a Mission Control communicator who talks with the six crew members of space shuttle Atlantis during their journey to the international space station."

Well that explains this whole mess, she was working on some material for the upcoming mission.

There I was, 30 miles east of Houston a steel mallet, 10 feet of rubber tubing and a box of trash bags in the trunk. I strapped on an adult diaper and took my first sip of coffee...
2007-02-16 01:04:30 PM  

M.C. Peepants?

You down with the PeePants?
2007-02-16 01:04:45 PM  
You guys actually liked that headline? Too many words for it to be a good joke AND smitty stole from the movie Armaggedon.
2007-02-16 01:05:13 PM  
Very nice headline

*golf clap*
2007-02-16 01:06:19 PM  
A giant bottlerocket? That a bit unfair. I've never had a bottlerocket blow up prematurely.
2007-02-16 01:06:21 PM  
Bravo subby, bravo
2007-02-16 01:09:23 PM  

I thought joke stealing was required on fark.

/yes, I liked it
//no, didn't waste $10 on Armaggedon
2007-02-16 01:10:28 PM  
Easily a '07 finalist.

2007-02-16 01:11:14 PM  

There I was, 30 miles east of Houston a steel mallet, 10 feet of rubber tubing, two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, and a whole multi colored collection of uppers, downers, laughers, screamers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls and a box of trash bags in the trunk. I strapped on an adult diaper and took my first sip of coffee when the drugs began to take hold. I remeber saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive." Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full with what looked like huge bats...
2007-02-16 01:11:41 PM  

...AND smitty stole from the movie Armaggedon.

Because nobody EVER references movie quotes on Fark.

/great headline, subby
2007-02-16 01:12:27 PM  
Incompetent agency? Pray tell what agency does submitter work on that has put people on the moon?
2007-02-16 01:12:49 PM  
Asked if the shuttle will launch on time, NASA said "it depends."
2007-02-16 01:13:16 PM  


2007-02-16 12:58:54 PM shipofthesun

When I saw that movie, I was all, like, "I remember dating her! SEVERAL times!"


Those were good times.
2007-02-16 01:14:10 PM  
That ain't no headline, sounds more like a new rap song by P Diddy. I mean Didshe.

/must stop now
