There's someone out there whose job it is to push a button and shock a retarded person. I'd love to see that on a resume.

Not only that but s/he is dumb enough to get outsmarted by an ex patient from a facility that specializes in autism, mental retardation, and emotional problems.

What kind of dumbasses do they have working there? Doesn't sound like much of a prank.

School Guy> Hello. This is Tard Shockin' School. How can I help you?

Prankster> Hello. Would you please shock some tards?

School Guy> I need proper authorization for that.

School Guy> Right away, sir.

Tard> I like pie...rawr...[ZAP]

Don't worry, soon we will all have those and then it won't seem quite so funny anymore.
 
2007-12-18 01:52:23 PM  
well, did the shocks keep them from peeing on the carpet and chewing up the furniture?

The shock devices, which are strapped to some students' arms, legs, or torsos, deliver two-second electric jolts to the skin. The devices are controlled remotely by teachers.


Wow, that's sounds like a great plan that would never be abused...


lets see here, 2 second jolts eh? School staffers contacted state authorities after they realized they had been tricked on Aug. 26 into delivering 77 shocks to one student and 29 shocks to another

Holy crap!
 
2007-12-18 01:56:33 PM  
Listen to me you snot nosed little jerk! When I get my hands on you...

You guys might not be aware of this, but after Junior High or so, retards just aren't that funny any more. It's something about adulthood, you just don't need to band together in safe little homogenous groups and make fun of people who are different to artifically bolster your sense of self-worth.

That or you become a football fan.
 
2007-12-18 02:00:21 PM  
Just give them some pudding and take them bowling and they will forget all about it.

Doctor Funkenstein, I was going to sponsor you for Total Fark for that hilarious post but since you're already a Total Farker and I am not, you should sponsor me.

/That would repay for the keyboard and monitor replacement.
 
2007-12-18 02:03:40 PM  
Haha wow. I am definitely going to hell for finding this amusing.

And since I'm already on my way there: Tard Blog. Enjoy!

Funniest thing I've read on Fark in a while. The pie comment really was what killed me.

As a 'tard currently getting shocked, I'm getting a jolt out of these replies...

Each shock lasted two seconds? That seems short, but not when you're getting shocked.

/shocked
 
2007-12-18 02:09:51 PM  
Shiat. Now I have to go home tonight and of course I will think of Prankster> Hello. Would you please shock some tards? and start to laugh for no reason. And my wife will ask what is so funny. And after being asked a dozen times I will try and explain, and of course she will be pissed at me for laughing at a tard joke. And no pun-tang for me. Thanks Doctor Funkenstein for getting me cut off.

That's alot. For the one kid, that's like 2 and a half minutes of straight shocking. Damn...

When I read this, I felt awful for these people, who are at the mercy of these teachers...with limited understanding how the world works, just randomly being shocked like that.

Of course, then I read this...

Doctor Funkenstein:

Tard> I like pie...rawr...[ZAP]

...and almost passed out laughing.
