How about the myterious shrunken Fark article list?
 
2002-09-16 08:05:08 AM  
I thought it said Shrunken head with ponytail kills peasants. *yawn* back to bed.
 
2002-09-16 08:05:53 AM  
what? Was this supposed to make sense
 
2002-09-16 08:06:10 AM  
He hits a bird and then has car trouble? Not wierd. Dumbass.

Kudos to him for getting his 15 minutes of fame though.
 
2002-09-16 08:06:36 AM  
I bet he skull fuggs it with his pencil dick.
 
2002-09-16 08:08:47 AM  
I don't get it.

I think I'd rather have the cursed monkey claw.
 
2002-09-16 08:09:50 AM  
Did he have a sidekick named shortround?
 
2002-09-16 08:10:50 AM  
I've got one of those shrunken heads with a tail, and it's a bit freaky, but I don't think it's killed anything yet...
 
2002-09-16 08:11:09 AM  
blah blah blah curse, blah blah blah shrunken head, blah blah blah blah feh.
 
2002-09-16 08:12:56 AM  
If streetlights start going out when he passes by with the head, then threre would be serious cause for concern.
 
2002-09-16 08:14:48 AM  
That headline hurt to read.
 
2002-09-16 08:15:49 AM  
I wish I had a monkey's paw
 
2002-09-16 08:20:42 AM  
Sweater Girl - okaaaay. A pop group. An RPG character. Not a character from "The magic goes away", which was my first association.
Why shrotround?
 
2002-09-16 08:21:34 AM  
heh

The guy is Mr. Jones.

Short Round.

Get it?
 
2002-09-16 08:21:52 AM  
A little head can get you in big trouble. Just ask Clinton...

Temple of Doom.
Sorry if I was vague.
 
2002-09-16 08:23:22 AM  
Ok,no joke. HOW THE HELL did they/whoever
shrink heads? That is the question.
Anyone know how they did that?
 
2002-09-16 08:23:38 AM  
maybe you shoulda stuck an obvious tag on that one, sweatergirl...
 
2002-09-16 08:25:04 AM  
*shrug*

not so obvious apparently
 
2002-09-16 08:25:35 AM  
I wish I could get a little head.
 
2002-09-16 08:27:01 AM  
For those of you who would like to make one of these of your own, here is how it's done.
Note: Curse not included!
 
2002-09-16 08:27:30 AM  
"It began when the head was sitting alongside me as a front seat passenger on route to the museum when all of a sudden a pheasant seemed to drop out of the sky and smash into my windscreen.
"I stopped the vehicle to put the bird onto the grass verge, but when I came to re-start the car, which has always been reliable, it simply would not start up again for several minutes.
"I immediately looked at the head and though I sincerely hope that this isn't some kind of spooky curse.
The head, which Mr Jones bought from a private collector, and he believes it dates from the early 1900s.

ugh. I went off Mr. Ford between Bladerunner and his virtual comeback in Robert Rankin's novels. I like the way the nonchalant shooting-the-guy-with-the-sword scene came from Mr. Ford actually being too pissed off to act out any heavier combat, but that's probably apocryphal.
 
2002-09-16 08:33:37 AM  
Nah, not too obscure, I just have a terrible memory for names, JumperGirl, and faces, too, for that matter. I'll be first in line when they offer cyborgization with Google.

That was in the original, If I'm following your line of thinking. The guy who put on the big show of his skills, right? Then Ford rolled his eyes and whipped out his gun?
 
2002-09-16 08:35:15 AM  
(What *was" the skull's name in "The magic goes away"? Wavyline? Waveyhill? Urrrr ...)
 
2002-09-16 08:35:51 AM  
That the headline submitter failing in English is might be with the possibility of unpossible.
 
2002-09-16 08:36:56 AM  
Yah, allegedly he had diho .... [Google] ... diarrhea.
 
2002-09-16 08:41:01 AM  
Did the pheasant have a pony tail ?
 
2002-09-16 08:41:14 AM  
This head has nothing on the evil voodoo doll from Trilogy of Terror with Karen Black--maybe the scariest B movie from the 70's.
 
2002-09-16 08:42:38 AM  
The incoherent headline is in keeping with the rest of the article:

a great many so-say freaky items

Is 'so-say' the same as 'so-called' but for really lazy typists. And check out the last line:

The head, which Mr Jones bought from a private collector, and he believes it dates from the early 1900s

Yours for five bucks here.

Labberdasher: "I like the way the nonchalant shooting-the-guy-with-the-sword scene came from Mr. Ford actually being too pissed off to act out any heavier combat, but that's probably apocryphal."

The real reason Harrison Ford didn't want to do a big fight scene was, according to Snopes (not a bad urban legends source imho), cos he had a bad case of diarrhea at the time.

Bad case of the trots

someone out there asked how they shrunk heads, im no expert in the subject, but I did stay in a holiday inn express last night. First they kill the person (duh) then they cut off his head and take the skin off the skull. Then there is some long process which somehow involves steaming it and placing really hot rocks inside it. Supposedly this was done to keep thier spirit from going on in the afterworld, where whatever war they were fighting goes on there, and its not a good idea to keep a steady supply of enemies coming on the the second battlefield.

CommieSheep - yah, and if I had the trots, I'd be pretty pissed off :)

Reminds me of the time the Bradys went to Hawaii and Greg wore that "charm" around his neck in a surfing contest and almost drowned. Gives me the shivers.

What is a wind screen? Like a windshield but made out of screen material instead of glass?
 
2002-09-16 10:30:13 AM  
So I asked the Genie, "How about a little head?..."
 
2002-09-16 10:37:53 AM  
human poo-poo is in your fast food.
 
2002-09-16 10:40:38 AM  
Most confusing headline evre.

The real shame is that my curiosity made me read this completely inane article.
 
2002-09-16 10:44:37 AM  
Stupid headline....doesn't anyone check them before they are posted!?

GIS for shrunken head:

Though there are a lot of actual pictures of shrunken heads... I suggest you do the search yourself. It's freaky deaky.

Headline Writer: It's called a COMMA, USE IT!!!

It's right next to the M and period (.) keys.

It looks like this: ,

Try it! You might not be taken for a retard all the time then!

Buy shrunken Heads on ebay

Now, that's quality products.
 
2002-09-16 11:28:50 AM  
Harrison Ford improved that scene because he was sick (dysentery?) after a vigorous shooting schedule in the middle of the desert. I guess he didn't want to bother with that action of that scene, and there you go. Not apocryphal, actual fact.
 
2002-09-16 11:54:33 AM  
Sad when I can read the tagline and think to myself: "Someone's gonna post something like 'All I wanted was a little head,'" and be right.

Shrunken head with pony tail looked after by man who also has pony tail kills pheasant (with pic)
