It's what plants crave.

//Female Reporter: It started off boring and slow with Not Sure trying to bullshiat everyone with a bunch of smart talk: 'Blah blah blah. You gotta believe me!' That part of the trial sucked! But then the Chief J. just went off. He said, 'Man, whatever! The guy's guilty as shiat! We all know that.' And he sentenced his ass to one night of rehabilitation.
//that was a long slashy comment

Captian Jook: Electrolytes are commonly acids, bases or salts, not sugars.

Somebody write this down. It'll be important in another thousand years.

/That's pretty good; you sure you ain't the smartest guy in the world?

Idiocracy was brilliant. Sure, there were holes in it, but it should still be required viewing for everyone.

The studio tried to kill it, but the DVD is so cool that word just had to leak out. (I first heard of it on Slate.

/ow!!! my balls!!!

As a reasonably intelligent person with a more than reasonably intelligent wife who'll never breed, I'm getting a kick out of these replies

Winktologist: Calvin Coolidge: Wow, they completely ripped off the Powerthirst (pops) video from YouTube.

It sounds like the Brawndo commercial was produced by the same guys as the Powerthirst videos. So they couldn't, in fact, rip themselves off.


They could get in trouble for ripping the Powerade ad off though, since they were paid to produce said ad. More likely, it's the same corporate client making both drinks under two names.

2007-12-09 02:28:14 PM  
Its got Electrolytes
So, is the submitter's misspelling of "it's" meant to be ironic or is it just proof that Idiocracy is coming true?

FarkinFarker: There's no fail like correction fail.

Shait. I knew it didn't look right when I typed it, and I got the important "double d" part...Yeah, well at least I don't talk like a fag!

/That WAS quite fail-tastic
//I guess I need some rehabilitation
 
2007-12-09 02:29:54 PM  
I don't care how many people hated that movie, I think it's farking brilliant! Man, that ad had me laughing my arse off...

I don't mean to bum you out or nuthin, but it says here you're farked up. It also says you talk like a fag and your shiat's all retarded. Don't worry man, there are plenty of tards out there living great lives. My first wife was a tard. Now she's a pilot.

Marshall Banana: The movie was good but could have been better without the annoying narration - it felt like they were constantly trying to explain things to the audience which should have been made clear by simply watching the film.

There's a subtle joke in that...

Idiocracy was a great movie but is a bit too close to people watching at a Walmart on a Saturday afternoon. That makes me want to weep.

We should be paying smart people to breed and paying stupid people to not.

/Camacho was way too much like Bush.

Carl's Jr. F*ck YOU!!!

Bohemian: Camacho was way too much like Bush.

I disagree. Camacho was stupid, to be sure, but he was never afraid to say what he thought. In addition, he was willing to change his mind without going through a bunch of lame explanations and misdirection.

Given the choice, I'd take the Ultimate Fighter anytime.

Argh!

Foaming: Every time they show that commercial with the woman singing about an up-grade, I can't help but think she's singing about her pimp.

You see, a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.

Sometimes I wonder if Judge ever gets depressed when he looks back at the things he's made and realizes that every time he's tried to warn people, they just twist those warnings into pop culture fads.

Beavis & Butt Head, Office Space, Idiocracy... All people can say about them is "Hehheh, FIRE!", "Where's my stapler?", and "Hey cool! Brawndo is real now!"


It's really very sad.

These are the same marketing geniuses that are also marketing Sex Panther cologne from Anchorman.

Read the copy. It's amazing!
