FTFA: They are not allowed to entertain themselves while holding on, meaning no iPods, books or cell phones.

So I guess fapping's a no go?

I read that as they would continuously have to touch "Hannah Montanna" herself initially. I think for some of those parents that would be the gift that kept on giving.

Don't any of these people have jobs? I'm no supervising manager, but I don't think that any boss would be impressed at them saying they need time off so they can go sleep on the streets so their child can go watch the flavor of the month perform.

I think that the comments are more interesting than the actual article. I love the "My son's not gay" flamewar going on below the article.

Ahahaha, and I had ticket priority to this too, as a season ticket holder to Lightning hockey games. If I had known she was popular, I would have bought my seats and made a killing on whipped parents.

I know, I know. I'm kicking myself for not buying, I could have paid off my car and put some money aside.

Oh, and I almost forgot, head over to this site(pops) and you can watch the live video of the silliness.

I wonder what happens if the idiots hold out until the night of the concert...or longer...

Awww.... I can't get watch it here at work! We don't have the software downloaded & our sytems keep us from downloading anything like that. (I guess to prevent viruses & the like from downloading themselves.)

I'll have to check that out when I get home. I'm sure that it'll be good for a laugh or two.

At the moment, it's just a bunch of cold looking people trying to sleep while still touching the base of the statue.

Does the name "Hannah Montana" make anyone else want to vomit? Sounds like "Debbie does Dallas" or "Gobblin' Grannies," or even "Farm erotica IV: Family Fun Time Sunshine Hour." Maybe not the last one, but seriously... Bukake

So I guess that none of the footage would be very entertaining until the morning. Dang! I was hoping to see footage of contestants trying to eliminate their competition!

I had no idea who or what Hannah Montana is. The things you learn by reading Fark. It scares me sometimes.

Wow...the best part of the live feed is the craptastic 93.3 FLZ music in the background. If I wanted to listen to that crap, I'd turn it on the radio.

If it's like when they did something similar but with a Survivor theme the first season Survivor was on, I doubt you'll be so lucky. Don't remember what they were trying to win, but I think that all that happened was people hanging on to fake palm trees in the parking lot for weeks without much happening.

Of course, it's the hope of something exciting that keeps us all watching :-)
 
2007-11-09 04:26:43 AM  
I could have worked that show when it came through. But I didn't. I worked a somewhat more dignified backstage gig. I felt so good for the whole day.

The idea of that many teeny boppers in the Key was horrifying.
 
2007-11-09 04:28:53 AM  
Ah, and now someone just got eliminated. Sweet. Why am I still watching this? Oh god.

Only reason I ever listen to 93.3 is because of the MJ Morning Show. And that only because Dan Sileo is a complete moron and ruins that time slot on 620.

/need to remember to bring the iPod in the car
//have a radio hookup and everything

You know, the second I hear about Hanna Montana's eventual decline into Teen Starlet Hell, I'm gonna crack open a bottle of wine and celebrate.

You did read the rest of that paragraph, right? Apparently not.

You know, I've been living on unemployment since July (and loving it, by the way), but of all the adjustments to my lifestyle I've had to make to accomodate that, getting rid of satellite radio hasn't even crossed my radar yet (neither has the high-speed internet, obviously).

It's $14 bucks a month. Many people spend 2-3 hours a day in their cars, but they still subject themselves to the torture of local radio? What the hell?

rynthetyn: Dang, of course it's when I got bored and stopped watching. What happened?

Some girl in red took her hand off the thing. They all went "awww"...then a radio station employee took her picture, and said goodbye. She left. Horribly anti-climatic. You missed nothing. No worries.

How is that?! I'm a St. Pete guy with season tickets to the Bolts (how about that game last night?!?!), and I've always wanted to catch it. When's it on?

Because some of us don't waste the money that we don't have (or money that we do have, in my case). Besides, pretty much the only thing I listen to in my car is sports radio, and if I want to listen to anything else, well, then I remember to bring my iPod and not be at the mercy of the whims of any radio station.

/of all the things to be snobby about, this?
 
2007-11-09 04:51:43 AM  
To be fair, I have gotten a lot less engaged with the Bucs and the NFL since I switched over to satellite back in like 2005. I can always switch over to Ian Beckles, but I'm usually distracted by whatever noise the satellite is pumping in. But then I always was a Chris Thomas guy anyway. But Ian was a staple back when I worked at Cactus Club, one of the few great ex-NFL players I've ever met.

Thank god I'm not forced to choose between Jim Rome and Rush Limbaugh at noon anymore, though.
 
2007-11-09 04:53:25 AM  
And by "great ex-NFL player" I mean "genuine nice guy."

Not talent. I've met Keyshawn Johnson. Eh.
 
2007-11-09 04:54:37 AM  
I will admit I enjoy the Hannah Montana show (but more for the secondary characters than Hannah herself). It's a very amusing show, and it's not full of dirty crap like a lot of other TV shows.

// Also was a fan of Doc.

The show's on on Sunday nights from 9-10. I've only heard bits and pieces of his show (keep forgetting to listen), but from what I heard, he seems to have pretty decent taste in music. At least "Don't Stop Believing" isn't his favorite song like certain star forwards *cough*vinnyandmarty*cough* (do tell me you have seen the "we have a song(pops)" interview).

And yeah, that game was great. The last two games, Homer has been absolutely amazing.

"My daughter will choke me," says Debbie Piscitella, 41, mother of 9-year-old McKenna and 6-year-old Sebastian. "If I lose, I'm done. I might as well not even go home."

Then you fail as a parent, Mrs. Piscitella. Your daughter would be better off with John Mark Karr at this point.

You know, there's actually one or two people that I'd like to see win that. (Read the bios.) There's one woman who is a breast cancer survivor & evidently does quite a bit in her spare time that seems nice as well as a parent who wants the tickets for her daughter to cheer her up after the death of the dad earlier this year. I'm really hoping that she'll win.
 
2007-11-09 05:34:04 AM  
What gives me satification is that every one of the contestants (bar the winner) will go home and be thought of as an utter failure by their little teapot snowflake.
 
2007-11-09 05:39:18 AM  
Is the statue posed as if it is about to throw a rock or lick a toad? I can't decide.

Wow...no, I missed that little youtube gem. My latest "Bolt Comedy that's funny for reasons other than they planned" is "Rappin' with Roy", which they play at the Forum, or I'm told on Sun if you watch the game. Nothing like watching Andre Roy prowl the locker room to make Brad Richards look uncomfortable in front of 20,000. Have you seen that?

I'm gonna hafta listen to the show this weekend, now that Boyle is back to injured reserve, I get the feeling his show will be on for a while! How about ending Stillman's 8 game point streak...and yeah, Homer has been amazing the past few games after letting us down for a while there. He's made such a big impression, even my girlfriend has gotten on the hockey bandwagon. Her latest purchase:

Hell, come visit us in 115 at the game next wednesday if you go. I'll be the one in the new RBK Edge Richards jersey!

Ok...i yahoo'd video for hanna. Wish i had not. Looks like another spears getting ready to lose her mind and shave her head.
 
2007-11-09 06:24:28 AM  
I am forced to watch this show from time to time when my 14 yo sister takes over the TV. I swear they have found some of the most odd/fugly looking kids I have ever seen on this show. And the kid who plays her brother I have concluded is the most annoying kid ever, even surpassing Urkel.
 
2007-11-09 06:48:57 AM  
I think I finally get it. If some folks are into something you don't like, they're idiots. And some radio promotion signals the ongoing fall of America. Lighten up, you big collective Francis.

And for the record, Confabulat. You are the most consistently annoying and arrogant f-stain on Fark. Nothing personal.
 
2007-11-09 07:08:31 AM  
I submitted this story yesterday with the headline "Dumbass parents enter lame contest for spoiled children" guess that wasn't good enough to make the cut.

Huh - based on this thread - that pretty much summed it up.

I guess you and I are the only two who picked up on that.
"Yankee" clearly has some issues - we should organize a FARK online flashmob and flood the website with dozens of posts suggesting that "Yankee's" son is sliding down that slippery slope to teh ghey. It all starts with "Hannah Montana" then quickly leads to Broadway showtunes, eyeliner and "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!" rants on YouTube.
It's so rare when you get to watch someone's head explode online.

Gotta read the comments just below the "article." Too funny, and all you Farkers out to love this quote...


Posted by ( LloydGrant ) on November 8, 2007 at 2:47 p.m. ( Suggest removal )

TBO is really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this "story." This is by far the worst morning radio "show" in the Tampa area. This "show" is nothing but some moron taking his content from http://Fark.com/ and talking about it.

This show is an embarrasment to entertainment.

Her name was Montana Wildhack.
