Haha, not bad, subby. Got a chuckle out of me.

/I prefer the aisle, thank you.

she has no fear of just being who she is and doing exactly what she wants to be

Know no fear, know no limbits.

/amputee Monday?
 
2008-11-24 02:24:11 PM  
I see no 'arm in this type of 'umor
 
2008-11-24 02:29:16 PM  
Wow, disarming to see what she can do single-handedly.
 
2008-11-24 02:29:45 PM  
Meh, it's nothing to clap about.
 
2008-11-24 02:31:28 PM  
One arm and one leg? Who did she go swimming with last time, alligators?

I like where this thread is koan (^)

It's difficult to fathom how hard she had to knuckle down but a little elbow grease helped forearm her spirit to keep despair at arm's length as she shouldered her burden.

/no wrist, no reward.

I'm apalmed by these puns.

This story seems a little one sided to me.
 
2008-11-24 05:15:53 PM  
Very nice, subby. Very nice.

She's really going out on a limb there!

One armed girl swims circles around competition

*golf clap*
 
2008-11-24 05:17:49 PM  
Gotta give her a hand.

I once had a one armed girlfriend. She totally sucked at cybersex.
 
2008-11-24 05:20:01 PM  
Very nice, Stubby
 
2008-11-24 05:20:15 PM  
On the last leg of the race, she pulled off an alarming feat.
 
2008-11-24 05:20:20 PM  
Eileen? Is that you?
 
2008-11-24 05:20:36 PM  
GUESS SHE'LL NEVER BE THE 'HEAD' OF A MAJOR CORPORATION LOLZ

/pun fail :(

Of course she does. Would you be able to compete against a girl holding a gun?
 
2008-11-24 05:23:27 PM  
Brilliant headline subby! I did a spit-take with my coffee

/ gotta clean off my keyboard now
// hot coffee hurts coming out of your nose

Dammit! I'm always in too late.

Abby and Brittany Hensel (separated at birth) would liked to have given the girl a hand and arm that they didn't need. But, alas, it was discarded soon after their birth.
 
2008-11-24 05:25:09 PM  
But what about Bob?
 
2008-11-24 05:25:18 PM  
what is today, national "lost a limb day" or sumpin'?
 
2008-11-24 05:25:39 PM  
Someone find out if she is polish because I would love to wave at her if she happens to be up in a tree
 
2008-11-24 05:26:18 PM  
I don't like one arm women, but I do enjoy two headed women. I mean its two orgasims for the price of one.

...Oh, a one-armed girl! Hyphens, when necessary, are your friends.

I used to complain about my sore feet. Now I just complain about amputees.

Okay so my morbid curiosity got ahold of me and I just had to GIS these/this girls/girl... That's some WEIRD SHIAT!!!1 But in keeping with Fark standards... I'd hit it.

This is just typical Fark.

A very inspiring story, and y'all just come in and make a bunch of off-hand remarks.

While the distinction was obvious, the girl is cute.

What do they do, throw food out in front of her to make her swim fast??

amputee tri fect taa daa?
 
2008-11-24 05:37:07 PM  
The reason she did well in butterfly is because the swimmers at that age do not have the muscles to do the stroke correctly. She avoids the problem by having two fewer limbs.

She's cheating.

You are right we should be asha....hey! I see what you did there.

Fark you in the EAR, subbie, for linking to page two of TFA!!!

srtpointman: Dammit! I'm always in too late.


That's what she said.

How many feats have there been for the amputees today? The limbic part of my brain is happy now.

Vega.: She's really going out on a limb with this lawsuit.

 
2008-11-24 05:41:32 PM  
If she had a gun on me, I would let her do whatever she wanted.
 
2008-11-24 05:41:55 PM  
Well, no kidding she's good in the water. With just one arm and one leg, she's basically an oar.
 
2008-11-24 05:42:07 PM  
OHHHHHH.... one-armed.
