(Some Guy)   NPR reporter in Iraq doesn't know what horrifies her most -- that people were ready to kidnap her for ransom, or that they were only going to demand $100,000. "You want to think, 'Just $100,000? Come on'"   (nctimes.com) divider line 106

Actually, I think it works out to 0.2 chicks at the same time.

I'd kidnap it, but I wouldn't pay $100,000 for it.
 
2007-09-07 04:47:48 PM
She's kinda hot, maybe worth more that 100K unless she been defiled.
 
2007-09-07 04:47:48 PM
Precious Princess Pissy Pants ain't worth THAT pretty a penny!

HAHA

Don't even need a 100 grand to hook that up over there, that's what the kidnappings are for...

Its pretty damn sick that top politicians of this country whisper in each others ears and snicker over how much a woman is worth.

Just leave and let them beat themselves back into the stone age. There's no civilization to be had here.

I'd throw a ringer for a ringer for it.

I'd like her to correspond this Dad's Bag.
 
2007-09-07 04:49:48 PM
Thank you subby, now I have the hots for this NPR reporter chick. I knew her name but I never realized she was so attractive.
 
2007-09-07 04:50:11 PM
I'd hit it. Then stone it for being a whore.
 
2007-09-07 04:50:53 PM
I would give you only five camels. She is not a ten camel woman. Her knees are sharp, as the infidels say.

Did anyone actually catch the interview in question? It was actually really interesting- an odd look into how criminals in Baghdad work..

Frig I wouldn't pay more than $150 for a half hour looking at the photo.

Sorry biatch, too much mileage on that thang.
 
2007-09-07 04:55:52 PM
Do you think they saw her press credentials and let her go like a fish thats not big enough.

"Let that one go Achmed...she's barely a reporter. If we kidnap from NPR no one will hear about it."
 
2007-09-07 04:56:19 PM
It ain't about ransom for politics or terrorism anything like that. It's just a good way to get money in that country.

Why yes, my evidence for saying that is completely anecdotal, but it does come from a guy who served over there, so that's gotta count for something.

Why would you pay to look at the photo for a half hour?

//Ohhhh.
///Never mind.

This is an example of typical arab male mentality. I work with a bunch of arab-americans and it SUCKS. These people are friggin racist, sexists animals.

They spend more time coming up with ways to fark each other over than actually get anything done. It's pretty disgusting. And this is in the United States.

severedtoe is she the one who cannot pronounce the letter 'R'? i get them confused

There are a lot of the NPR correspondents with really super annoying speech impediments -- I mean, I hit mute when Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr starts gargling his way through another tirade against the Bush administration.

The one who leaps to mind as having trouble with 'R's is Peter Overby -- I've always pictured him looking like Moe Rocca, because he soudnds almost just like him.

I've been kidnapped by K-Mart!

/Probably not particularly obscure

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: it does come from a guy who served over there, so that's gotta count for something

It's worth at least a "thank you".

P.S. LOVE the name. Now, if only I were a chick, you might actually give a shiat...

"I've been marked down?

"I've been kidnapped by k-Kay-Mart!"

/obscure?

Oh I still give a shiat. I know nothing is obscure on Fark, but I still giggle when I think of those drunk bears. Or Bill Clinton. I can't tell the difference.

I'm always happy when people get the reference.

Viva Jay Sherman! Viva Quebec!

You are dead on with Peter Overby.

I love the commentary by the Romainian guy in New Orleans i always picture Boris from the Rock and Bullwinkle show.

Yeah, it's soooo annoying how NPR hires folks because of their journalistic chops and not their really great radio voices. God that pisses me off.
 
2007-09-07 05:05:34 PM
C'mon, she's an NPR reporter! $100k sounds about right. If they had much more loose cash lying around, they wouldn't harrass me for pledges.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears

I never said I i was annoyed by it. I was just trying to remember which correspopndent she is.

BTW Andrei Codrescu's commentaries are some of my favorites.

ecmoRandomNumbers, the sad thing is that the thread went this far without anyone else thinking of it first.

And also, MUHAHAHA!!!
