I love that they looked it up in Wikipedia.

What next, UFIA highway?

Well, it made my morning. Thank you, submitter.

There's only one reason why that logo was drawn that way.

/I'm sticking around for the ensuing pics

MorrisBird: Well, it made my morning. Thank you, submitter.

I couldn't believe this when I found it (I won't get into how), and amazed when it didn't come up as "already submitted".

It was like striking Fark gold.

I suspect you boldly went where no man has gone before. Thank you, again. Five dollars a month. You make it worthwhile.

This is awesome; my favorite part:

Azerbaijan is among the most tolerant countries of the world.

However, foreign citizens, residing in our country, should not make use of this tolerance.
 
2008-04-16 07:42:05 AM  
Good find.

Yeah...I was about to point that out. Seems a bit of a double standard.

In all honesty, it was a Google News Search on female body parts. Standard submission prospecting tactic.

You're not special. We've all Googled "Anna Kournikova" before.

Just wait until they find out what a Dutch Rudder is.

that was a lot of butthurt for a news article

it started off trying to report facts but devolved into a livejournal rant about halfway through - somewhere around the part where they mentioned there were no prostitutes

Aaaand green. Your $5 is back to being only good for incestuous ball-eating chair clamcake trainwrecks in TFD.

Thanks Adman12 for the post. It made my day.

/Has anyone Googled MILF yet?

That's the second-most titilating logo I've ever seen.

That may be the the best correlation between username and image that I've ever seen.

I guess that "The Clear Visible Presence of a Woman's Vulva, as a Consequence of Wearing Overly Tight Pants Bar and Grill" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Hint: I think it might have to do with the religion of pieces.


Fun fact: Baku was named the dirtiest city in the World by forbes magazine.

"Azerbaijan is among the most tolerant countries of the world. . . . However, foreign citizens, residing in our country, should not make use of this tolerance."

I hope that's a translation/english not a first language problem.

The wikipedia link to "camel toe" in a news article is priceless.
 
2008-04-16 12:09:39 PM  
UM, still waiting on pics. SOMEBODY POST PICS!!!!!!1!!!1!!1one!!!!

I am sure that the writer meant "abuse" but it's still damn hilarious. Even when 3rd world shiatholes think they are being rational, open-minded, and clawing out of the dark ages... they really aren't.
 
2008-04-16 12:13:01 PM  
When are they going to open a Hooters?
 
2008-04-16 12:13:03 PM  
I dunno... I'd be a lot more impressed if people could get business without stapling tits and ass to everything from bars to pop music to clothing.

If you're gonna open a whorehouse, open a whorehouse and drop the oh so clever bullshiat. It makes you look like Beavis and Butthead saying "heh hemh hmeh hrmhmrhm "vagina" hrm hmhmm hmmrm hm". : )

Directions to the Camel's Toe: go straight by the Cleveland's Steamer ...
 
2008-04-16 12:13:38 PM  
this is just full of greatness
 
2008-04-16 12:13:53 PM  
It's good to see that Borat is only kind of a parody of CIS reporting standards.

/stereotypes--all true apparently

Me too.

I came here for the pics of camels' toes and was disapointent

Wait.... What?

skinink: Directions to the Camel's Toe: go straight by the Cleveland's Steamer ...

Meh, you then have to take a right at the Rusty Trombone and go past the Dirty Sanchez mexican restaurant.

I just love the writing style in TFA. I imagine the reporter ...

farm1.static.flickr.com

After tour of America, I now reporting for paper of news in Azerbaijan, to investigate what is this "toe of camel." In fact the name has double meaning! Here is picture of me with subjects of research. VERY NICE! Is good job, but dissapoint to find no prostitute in bar.

We are really, really, really tollerant of everybody, except when you do or say something we don't like. Then we stone you.
