Someone needs to post an Ackbar standing next to a hot chick with big hooters saying you-know-what.

I'd to it myself but I suck at Photoshop.

Uh, yeah, that would be "do it", not "to it".

I was wondering the same thing. I think the Admins don't like us Farkers getting too many links all at once, cuz then we won't learn to appreciate them. It'll probably reappear in a few hours.

I found that article to be most englightening but for however the paragraphs two at the end gave a puzzle with promise of solution not delivwered to my csatisfaction csoncertning the breast version of the word.
More important to my importance would have to be and scertainly is of the fascinating mention of what must be able to fascinate "Count Screwloose of Toolose" worthy of google? so shall we see? now? guess so? I know I do.

2002-10-05 08:28:28 AM

"Boob tube" didn't derive from "idiot box".

It is a variation of the term "Glass Teat".

Hmm, this article gives a whole new light to those "I wish these were brains" t-shirts.

I like to randomly shout out "boobies!" when I'm at bars. You know, just for kicks.

Right, that wasn't really very interesting. Alrighty, I'm just going to go play with my boobies now.
2002-10-05 03:21:05 PM  
And when I say boobies, I mean the group of idiots I keep locked in the basement. Not my luscious, velvety breats.
2002-10-05 03:30:33 PM  
Boobies !
