They should do a "best hoaxes of 2002" page.

Does Larsoncc get good luck all year for being the Boobiese of the New Year?

Damned filter. Thought I was tricky enough. Colin FIRTH / Emily POST work?

"female first footers should shooed away before they bring disaster down on the household. Aim a gun at them, if you have to, but don't let one near your door before a man crosses the threshold."


That was funny, i was very amused.

When I was a kid we lived on a busy street. The ONLY time of the year it was quiet was 12:00 to 12:02 AM on NYD, so we opened all the doors to enjoy the silence. Then we banged pots and pans to disturb the silence. I don't think we knew of any legends, it was just fun.
Oh, then my brother and I would lie down in middle of the road for a few ceremonial seconds. Of course Mom and Dad supervised the whole affair.
Good times, man. Good times.

...all the doors to enjoy the silence...

Now I gotta sift thru my CDs for Violator!

Also, do not do the laundry, lest a member of the family be 'washed away' (die) in the upcoming months. The more cautious will even eschew washing dishes.

Hell, I'm turning that one into a resolution for the whole year!

What a nutty list. Never heard any of them before. Most folks won't have to worry about these anyway. no reason to leave the house tomorrow.

This is off-topic, but I used to post all the time using Verdana fonts in the Fark comments. Now I'm seeing it everywhere and a few people in the threads also see it. Now suppose that everyone else also sees the comments in Verdana font. Is this going to be permanent because I used to be special with my Verdana font posts. :)

Don't eat monkey brains on New Years Day, very bad luck.

I'm back from the middle of the road.
Happy New Year, East Coast Farkers!

"First footers must not be cross-eyed or have flat feet or eyebrows that meet in the middle"

Poor, poor Russia..
2003-01-01 12:21:03 AM  
It won't be midnight here in Texas for another forty minutes, but I'm going to sleep. Happy New Years all and drink lots of Dr. Pepper, because Dr. Pepper is the greatest drink on earth.

So what if the potential first footer is a blond, cross-eyed woman with a unibrow?
2003-01-01 12:23:10 AM  
Happy New Year everyone.
2003-01-01 12:23:34 AM  
May Fark continue to flourish and prosper in the coming new year.

All the best, Drew, Jeff and everybody!

Oh, and one more thing ...

First cliche of the new year:

Don't Tell Mr. T.

Yes, it's official!
2003-01-01 12:28:00 AM  
I miss you Timothy!!!!!!

Where I grew up in Appalachia it was common to cook cabbage on New Year's Day with a silver coin dropped in it while it was cooking. Supposed to guarantee prosperity for the upcoming year. All I ever got was a chipped tooth.

OK, I'm just about stoned and drunk enough to go to bed. The new year is here, and I have to go back to work on 01-02-03. Feh!

Happy New Year Bass555.

We put crisp dollar bills under our plates, but you can't spend them for some reason. I dont get it, but we do it. Also we eat taocs the night before, have sasuage and saurkraut for lunch and black-eyed-peas for dinner.
2003-01-01 12:35:12 AM  
My family is doomed. My dad washed dishes, and none of us watched the robotic Dick Clark on television.

2003-01-01 12:43:03 AM  
Happy New Year. T-19 minutes for my time zone, but in case I miss it then, let it be a good year for everyone.
2003-01-01 12:45:28 AM  
Trowshep Well the robot, formally known as Dick Clark, grinds on in its life-like manner. We had nice fireworks here in New York Harbor. My wife and I sat on the balcony and watched them.
2003-01-01 12:45:48 AM  
Can you guys believe we're actually sitting in front of the 'puter on New Years Eve?

I think I will follow the spirit of these traditions and do whatever the hell I want to do, regardless of whether the traditions say so or not, thus assuring that I will continue doing whatever the hell I want to do for the entire year!
2003-01-01 12:59:56 AM  
Hey, folks, is it just me or has the Fark banner been conspicuously absent the past few hours?

/wonders what Drew, Mike, & Jeff might have up their sleeve ????
2003-01-01 01:04:10 AM  
Our family tradition: Eat black eyed peas, cabbage, and hog jowls. Yay for the South.
2003-01-01 01:06:08 AM  
Happy New Year, everybody. It's been a great year for Fark, and here's to another one.
2003-01-01 01:06:33 AM was just me. Quit Exploder and launched it again, only to find banner lives.

/feels like Asshat....begins muttering to self

Don't read snopes on New Years. It'll make you superstitious all year.

But Happy New Year everyone.
