IT MUST BE MINE!

Another casualty of the economic disaster.
 
2008-09-25 01:37:53 PM
He went for 5 bucks. How fitting.

This is a small step for the internet, but a giant leap for Forbes Insoluble Dry Plates.
 
2008-09-25 01:38:35 PM
God damn it the auction is over.
 
2008-09-25 01:39:37 PM

DAMNIT! The person that owns this would be King of Fark.

Words escape me. Well, all of them except for "HA! HA!", that is.

I bought the Ha Ha guy on eBay last year - it was some ad for a tavern or something out of an old newspaper. I don't remember exactly what it was but I remember the name: Conrad Moo's. I have it on the bulletin board at home.
 
2008-09-25 01:44:11 PM
He is the Midland Man? I still want to know what it says on the back of it.

This would've been so much funnier if it had been submitted while the auction was still in progress.

Wow if someone knowledgeable bought it and put up a new auction at Ebay or something and linked it to every community that was familiar with that meme he could make quite a bit of money, that guy.

Midland Man?! So *that's* his name.


/Still going to use HA HA guy

Forbes' Insoluble Dry Plates. I guess I could have tried Google.

I think it's

"The man who resigned a Midland position in 1874 and got his pay"

Any idea what it means?
 
2008-09-25 02:28:15 PM
I am so upset that it's ended... I was getting ready to make an account and bid.

To walk into my apartment every night and see the Ha! Ha! guy, mocking me... would be just too amazing for words.

Procedural Texture: This would've been so much funnier if it had been submitted while the auction was still in progress.

Watching all of us idiots trip over each other to outbid it, then mocking whoever spent way too much for a print of the freaking Ha! Ha! Guy? Yeah. It would have been epic, I suspect. Especially if we bid with our actual usernames.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midland_Railway_of_Canada

"The Midland Railway had started the 1870s in good financial condition. In 1870 its receipts were $242,157 against expenses of $113,227, an Operating Ratio of 47%.

In 1872 Frank Shanly was awarded a contract to build a fifty three mile extension from Beaverton to a terminus on Georgian Bay at Midland. There were unforeseen difficulties with the ground and a rapid increase in labour costs, which ruined Shanly. The Midland was financially strapped, could not afford to pay Shanly for the extras, and seized the contract back in February 1873.

At the same time the recession hit freight receipts which fell by 30% between 1872 and 1874. The first Midland Railway manager D'Arcy E. Boulton of Cobourg, Ontario was replaced by Adolf Hugel of Pittsburgh. "

caribou: Related?

Maybe as an ad campaign or something, but the 1800s was waaaaaaaaaaay too late for a tricorner hat.

I think the HA HA guy was brought back in time by a Farker.

Would've made a helluva door prize at a Fark party.

I wonder if that man (since he actually existed) ever thought he'd be immortalized and famous world-wide.

I just bought a HA HA Guy on the internet for $5 so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

/Do I get to be King of Fark now?

Awesomeness. I miss the HA HA guy, glad to see him coming around here again.

I bid $5 on pics with no shirt.

nice find, subby.
 
2008-09-25 04:32:27 PM
Who submitted this? I'm guessing they're the winning bidder.

Motherfarker only has one bid in bid history. You set up an account, got this for $5, waiting for the thread to fill with praise/questions, and then you're going to anounce yourself, aren't you you sneaky devil?

/Seriously, how else would subby find this?

PC LOAD LETTER: I think the HA HA guy was brought back in time by a Farker.

He wages an eternal battle across time, space and reality for the soul of the internets against his arch-nemesis, the Har! Har! Guy.

That would've gone for a brazillion dollars and two internets if Farkers could've bid.
 
2008-09-25 04:33:11 PM
For all of those lamenting missing the sale, it's just too bad there isn't some mechanical means by which you could transfer this from the electronic medium to the physical.
 
2008-09-25 04:33:25 PM
This is gonna be good!
