drink vodka and fruit punch in the back seat?

boring.

Cakeboy: My God, Hollywood is gay.

This coming from a guy named "Cakeboy."

This coming from a guy named after both a Warcraft character and the process of huffing human waste?

They're "fighting for the future"? What a trite slogan. And they're writers and that's the best they can come up with?

Outsource them to Mumbai.

That comment would only make sense if I said "That Warcraft guy and the fake internet prank drug Jenkem are totally gay."

Otherwise it is irrelevant. STFU and GBTW

No no, Cakeboy is right. Hollywood is gay. Both in the playground "That's gay!" sense and the literal "gay" way. After the fashion industry and professional sports, it's the gayest employment sector.

Oh, nobody said that? My mistake.

Much like that Warcraft guy and the fake internet prank drug Jenkem, your name is gay.

Satisfied?

I completely agree with you (except for that sports jab) but I just thought it was funny that a guy named Cakeboy was calling anything gay. Unless he himself is gay and is throwing that word around to be ironic, in which case he should knock himself out, preferably with a sledgehammer.

That's the weakest comeback I've seen on Fark in a long, long time. You might as well apologize to the community for wasting the 5 seconds of time it took them to read that worthless response.

It's a parody of your response, since you took it upon yourself to look at Cakeboy's response and decide to take a shot at his name instead.

Ad hominem is not a valid debate topic. See how silly it is?

You come into a thread where people are making gay jokes and try to turn it into a proper debate minus the personal attacks? L O farking L.

Bwahahaha. I really appreciate hearing that from someone who's been here for about a month.

Get back to me when you're ready to talk with the big boys.

now i mean, i'm not trying to suggest anything here, treygreen, but i'm not sure if "Account created: 2007-05-22 " really qualifies you for the 'big boys'

just sayin, is all.

You're right. My account isn't, you know, 5 digits. But compared to the guy who hasn't even passed 1 month yet and is telling me "Welcome to Fark", I'm Old Man River.

I've been here a lot longer than you have, guaranteed. This login is new, however.

Keep replying and keep drawing out the embarrassment, it's only making you look more foolish. Hey look, here's a funny thread on the main page about airline food. Why not go play in that one? I'm sure your cunning wit will delight everyone there. Have fun!

I'm already in that thread, but thanks for bringing it up!
(By the way, nice chain.)

I'm out anyway. I've gotta get home so I can not play WoW in the basement.

The End.

docbenspock: what no more pissin' contest? damn i thought this thread was going to be stuff of legends and i could one day tell my children i was there.

Blame Treygreen13, sir, it was him who chose to bow out early. As for me I could've gone all day and night since I have no job, no WoW raids to tend to, and no basement chores. I even finished polishing my sweet chain, so I was good to go...

sigh
 
2008-01-11 07:17:49 PM  
Leave it up to a bunch of pussies like the WGA to come up with an uber-dumb childish idea like this, which of course they ripped off from the very people they're fighting against.

And this is coming from a guy that will eat your farking fetus.
 
2008-01-11 07:54:49 PM  
Meh. Don't care, but I'll side with the writers on GP. Hourly/flat rate pay is for CEO's and communists. People should be able to expect a reasonable cut of any profit attributable to the work they performed.

/From each according to his ability, funneled to the guy at the top who delegates all actual work.

Tommy Moo: Leeroy Jenkems is quickly becoming my favorite farker to watch.

Thank you, sir.

Did you major in internet banter?

No, but I've been bantering ever since I had a Prodigy account. From there I moved on to CompuServe/AOL, then USENET, web forums, and now Fark. I have many years of practical real world banter experience they just can't teach you in college, sir.

I dig your style, man.

Wow, I'm so glad they're taking this matter so seriously. How heartening that they're taking the high road and really working hard to bring all the issues to the table and get them settled in a fair and timely manner and not resorting to childish and time-wasting grandstanding.

Frakking good job, WGA. You clearly deserve the best of everything.

They have presented their case and the networks/production companies have the ball in their court. That pathetic offer doesn't count.

Imagine if you were offered $250 for something that was going to bring in millions in revenue (at least in some cases). I don't think the writers are being unreasonable.

The same media companies that want to sue you for using your CDs as you see fit, want to say that extra profits for shows in new media formats shouldn't be attached to writer compensation (you know the people who created those shows?).

It does suck that the stage crews are suffering, but the networks and production companies new this was coming and let it happen because they are douchebags.
