Some of it's quite funny. I like the "My Teacher is a Lesbian" one on page 3.
2002-10-17 06:29:00 AM  
Waaah! I'm sad because I don't think Something Awful is funny, and I had a gun to my head forcing me to click that link! I demand that you only post what I approve of from now on!

not bad.

One of the better SA Goldmines in a while. Is it just me, or has the recent past ones been "darker" than usual?
2002-10-17 07:17:01 AM  
I like SA goldmines. I would almost give them my $20 to see their forums, almost. Do I get to see real naked women their thats a deciding factor.
2002-10-17 07:17:11 AM  
yes, Syberspud, "Arbys Macht Fries" was so very wrong, it opened up the door.

still had me Roofling.

Not as good as the Fark Photoshop a few months back - Books that never made it to Oprah's bookclub.

Anxiously awaiting the first asshat who will link a Something Awful pic.....

1) It's $9.95 to enter
2) We have an entire forum devoted to porn
3) We have an entire forum devoted to mp3s
4) what
2002-10-17 07:28:51 AM  
that seems to be the exactly what the internet is about, money, porn and pissing off the RIAA and MPAA
2002-10-17 07:29:49 AM  
also, glad to see you here Lowtax :)
2002-10-17 07:35:41 AM  
Oh my God! The Jive Talking Parrot one sure brings back some memories. I think I read every 'Three Investigators' book I could get my hands on when I was a kid. :-) I loved those things.
2002-10-17 07:45:53 AM  
Lowtax, I'm sold look for my money this week.
2002-10-17 07:50:37 AM  
Seriously though I think Fark and Something Awful are the only reasons I look at this red headed bastard we call the intenet anymore. Cliff Yablonski is like looking at a family photo album for me.
2002-10-17 07:56:33 AM  
Quite ur biatchin'. That was comedy gold
2002-10-17 07:59:52 AM  
Is this $9.95 per month or 4evarrrrrr?

Sounds a half decent proposition if it is. Still I say that but I've not joined Tfark yet.

/ lazy,cheap bestid
2002-10-17 08:02:00 AM  
I just sent my $9.95 didn't ask my any questions about forum name or password though. I might have farked it up. Oh well if you get my $10 buy a pint of Stoli.
2002-10-17 08:21:19 AM  
Quite the 'amusing' day on Fark - with yesterday of course being the 'boobie' day...
2002-10-17 09:15:11 AM  
Adm_crunch Me too. I loved those three investigators books.
2002-10-17 09:15:25 AM  
All i have to say is where are the crap photoshops? Didn't every Goldmine and Photoshop Phriday end with a last page showing all the crap photoshops? Those things were like the blooper reel of SA, If the blooper was that you messed up shooting someone in the face and shot your own face while falling in a vat of acid. Gimme the rejects!!!
2002-10-17 09:36:13 AM  
Funny. Funny stuff.
2002-10-17 09:43:36 AM  
Is Lowtax still here? I have a bone to pick. Well, not really. More of a request. Okay, it's just plain whining, but still.

And a whole forum devoted to porn, you say? Eeeeeeeenteresting....
2002-10-17 10:05:55 AM  
LMAO! "Who Beat the fark Outta My Wife?" by Ike Turner! The picture on the cover is priceless.
2002-10-17 12:11:56 PM  

Some of the better ones (in my screwy opinion)

I like the first two on the page. But that's just 'cause I think domestic violence is funny.

Pornosaur: Welcome to the Goon Store. You'll love our Hentai thread. It's disgusting.
Firstgrrl will send you an email asking for your username, password, etc. shortly. Don' worry.

O.TheHumanity:It's $9.95 for ever.
You can pay a little extra for certain features. Like, changing someone who pisses you off's avatar into something incredibly obscene. It's fun AND annoying!

Barton: Since Integral took over the Goldmines, she has ommitted the page of sheme. She's too nice. I keep telling her to spank me hard, but she won't do it. Maybe she misunderstood...

The other reason a Pheature may not have a page of shame is if it started off as a random PShop thread instead of as a Pheature thread. They only biatchslap people who are aware up front that they should be submitting Pheature quality and deliver crap instead (although, some people seem to think that ALL we ever deliver is crap; Oh well).

You killed Rover! Bastards! (See the very last one - Animal Crossing riff.)

Open Question for SA folks or members of SA forums:

I just read the SA rules about forums and acceptable behaviour. It sounds like if you're in the wrong thread and you sneeze too loud you're banned. I was gonna join until I read that. I'm a pretty moderate guy, but somebody please tell me it's not that bad?
2002-10-17 03:00:57 PM  
I don't even like mysteries and this is funny. LMAO at the "Gruesome Tea-Bagger". Cpu_Thrasher How'd you post those pics? I thought you couldn't post pics from SA.

Special message to Lowtax: We want more Cliff! The tribe has spoken!
(While you're at it, you may want Cliffy to comment on the bangya (or whatever you call it) pics from the Russia Fark party. Comedy gold there.
2002-10-17 03:18:52 PM  

It's not that bad. You really have to ruffle someone's feathers to be banned. Scouts honor.
