I know there is a japan/pearl harbor joke in here somewhere.. but I can't seem to form one.
2002-12-27 01:53:49 PM  
It's not news, it's a blurb.
2002-12-27 01:54:19 PM

What? No one has surrendered?
2002-12-27 01:55:39 PM  
There's a joke about Pearl Bailey around somewhere, too...
2002-12-27 01:56:01 PM  
Ok. I'm going home early today cause I'm really sick, but that's in 3 hours. Please, help a sick Farkette sail throught the 3 hours by having some humorous threads started. Something, anything!
2002-12-27 01:56:13 PM  
I've been waiting for this a long time. Just wish Earnhart Sr. was alive so he could drive one. Let the red necks choke on it for awhile.

Somehow I don't see sushi being real popular at NASCAR events.
2002-12-27 01:56:44 PM  
We know you're sick, we see the kinds of posts you make.

2002-12-27 01:57:38 PM  
The further NASCAR is from me, the better.

Re raunt to lace wit leadnecks in big circle. Turn reft and then turn reft again.

Hey Maveno!!! Sorry to hear about that.
Trying, trying, but not succeeding.
2002-12-27 01:58:55 PM  

Oh, nice..pick on the sick one. ::cough cough::

Rip-roarin real rice rockets are a comin.
2002-12-27 02:03:57 PM  
I can't wait to see a riced out Camry in NASCAR - will it be hard to get a jack under the lowered Toyota to change the tires - and will they change rims with each new set?

Toyota invades Nascar, wants new track built in Pearl Harbor

Won't it get wet?
2002-12-27 02:04:22 PM  
NASCAR is entertainment, that is if you have a small brain. It can't be considered as motorsport. So why are companies like Toyota still involved? Could it be that the target demography is retards? Now that's original....
2002-12-27 02:05:06 PM  
Not to dump too hard on Nascar fans, but The Simpsons have it right. "When else are we going to get to watch cars driving?" I also liked one of Letterman's lists about Nascar, which included the plus "Unlike other confusing sports, competitors only move in one direction." Or maybe that was the Onion...And speaking of, I'm sick of Onion repeats. They could have at least put the original date on the one they have now, it's got Clinton in it, for god's sake.

I love the smell of burnt rice in the morning!

Bad names/NASCAR combo comment.

NASCAR driver Dick Trickle. Bwahahahahahaha..hooo!
2002-12-27 02:06:07 PM  
C'mon, Nascar fans, flame back!
I'm w/ Maveno. A Sick Farkette... badly in need of some humor/flaming/intelligent banter.
2002-12-27 02:06:22 PM  
Can't wait to see the inevitable and hilarious redneck jokes in this topic.
2002-12-27 02:07:04 PM  
and he's abnormally huge also!!! sorry, stop me before I GIS again.
2002-12-27 02:07:51 PM  
Is that in the NASCAR rules? Carbeurators and iron blocks? Interesting that you'd have to make your car worse to compete.
2002-12-27 02:08:07 PM  
I'm just waiting for Toyota to clean house and give Chevy, Pontiac and Ford a shift kick in the ass. All that's left is Honda to join in.

Sushi? Typical Nascar fans don't even know what it is.
2002-12-27 02:08:13 PM  
Why do they need a computer to figure out how to build a carbureted V8?
2002-12-27 02:08:27 PM  

It's a TRAP!!!

Pretty uneducated post that one.

They are gonna spend a ton of money on this track and it's gonna bomb.
2002-12-27 02:10:34 PM  
Anyone remember the first cannonball run with the two asian guys in their gagdety car? I think one might have been Jackie Chan..

Will they have nightvision for the endurance races?

Maybe they could program Sony Aibo or that Honda Robot to drive, that would be some funny shiat.
2002-12-27 02:11:08 PM  
He's looking for a new sponsor, apparently -- Heilig Meyers is defunct, isn't it? All the stores in SD went under.

As a touring car racer, I can't stand NASCAR. Flame away.
2002-12-27 02:11:58 PM  
Jeebus_Frist, I'm a NASCAR fan but it's sorta hard to flame back when the truth is that I come from a long line of West Virginian white trash that is genetically disposed to love watching cars go in circles and yelling.

2002-12-27 02:12:06 PM  
Don't say bomb around Pearl Harbor
2002-12-27 02:12:58 PM  
"Sushi? Typical Nascar fans don't even know what it is."

Quite the contrary. In NASCAR circles Sushi is referred to as "Catfish Bait" and is highly revered.
2002-12-27 02:13:43 PM  
oops predisposed not disposed.

And see with mistakes like that..... good grief
2002-12-27 02:14:55 PM  
Is that in the NASCAR rules? Carbeurators and iron blocks? Interesting that you'd have to make your car worse to compete.

Yes. NASCAR doesnt allow any kind of modern engine technology. No fuel injection, no computers (exception is telemetry that broadcasts to the pit things like RPM, temp etc), iron blocks, natural aspiration. The engines havent changed all that much in oh, 30-odd years.

The point is to keep everyone on even footing, that way teams with more money can't just pile on the latest technology to win (like F1 tends to do)

2002-12-27 02:15:05 PM  
I love the fact that Toyota has to actually take a technological step backwards to compete in NASCAR. I think the last time I saw a Toyota with a carbuerator was sometime in the early 80's. I only drive American cars, but respect the Japanese for their commitment to technological innovation.

Toyota involved in NASCAR is a very bad idea. The fans and the good 'ole boys won't accept it. As far as I know, there's no part of Japan that had sake bootleggers running high performance Toyotas through the backwoods.
2002-12-27 02:15:35 PM  
Stinky, yes it was Jackie Chan and Michael Hui

2002-12-27 02:15:35 PM  
It's part of a secret One World plan to turn the Japanese into a bunch of mouth-breathing yokels, too.
2002-12-27 02:16:24 PM  
NASCAR = Redneck tennis.
2002-12-27 02:17:02 PM  
So is mitusbishi going to bring some of there machines over to pearl harbor again.
2002-12-27 02:17:55 PM  
Who wants too see a V8 Camry go in a circle for 500 miles? At least they could pick some nice cars. What's Chevy using? The Impala? POS. The Impala has to the ugliest car on the road.

You don't need skill to drive Nascar, just enough endurance to sit in a car going in a circle looking at the same crap for 3 hours and not go bat sh*t insane

Whoever said the good ol' boys won't like it is unfortunately correct. I hate these stereotypical assholes.

Meanwhile, on a not-very-related note, Jeff Gordon is set to host SNL in January.
2002-12-27 02:20:48 PM  

its sad they took away all the soiled panties vending machines in japan..
2002-12-27 02:21:03 PM  
Thanks 51.. I was waiting for that :o)
2002-12-27 02:21:17 PM  
Chevrolet's NASCAR teams use Monte Carlos. Dick.

Did anyone tell Al ?
