The Aristocrats. A family act, like I told you.

DarthBrooks: Did they steal the kids' combs too? And the Christmas tree decorations?

/This story smells like an aborigine's ahmpit.


I was really feeling bad for these kids, but that line busted me up really hard.

My ex and I used to be introduced to people and they'd say "Oh, we heard of you two but thought you were black."

Trey and Jasmine, we did sound like a black couple, but our names were spelled correctly.

This.

He may as well get used to a lifetime of disappointment and misery with a name like that.

TFA: the total value of about 10 stolen gifts would have been about $1000 ... including a gold watch with a dragon on the face, a fairy statue and two gift packs of Hilary Duff perfume

They were foolish to leave presents of such obvious value and good taste just lying around unsecured. Not like any of us can boast of owning any one of those items, let alone all three.

My workplace gets some weird calls this time of year. Right before I left work today I got a call from a guy wanting to report that his wife took the kids and all the presents from under the tree and disappeared.

DarthBrooks: Kate Baker came home from Christmas drinks with friends about 10pm on Sunday to find her children and young grandchildren sobbing and inconsolable over the mean-spirited crime.

The shock triggered a heart attack that led to the single mum being rushed to Cairns Base Hospital that night, before being released yesterday afternoon.

Grandma's out partying on a work night,and they're blaming the *burglary* for the heart attack?

Where's the GRANDPA? Where's the father of her DAUGHTER'S kids?

Work on the life priorities, honey.


Really?.... Really?! Crap, they told me that there was no life after having kids, but I didn't really believe them!

In all seriousness, fark that. If grandma wants to go party, she can go farking party. It's not like the KIDS got stolen. The 15 year old was home (and he was plenty old enough to be there alone). Even mum should get to party every now and again after 15 years of child care.

Sheesh. You sound like YOU need to get your priorities straight.

That's because all the kids are getting for Christmas is sunlight, and have become heliotropic.

Dude, you have never been to Australia then.

The country is like 95% white, but nearly everyone thinks they are a gangsta rapper. It's both hysterical and sad.
 
2008-12-23 08:04:50 PM
Looks like they stole the decorations off the tree and the shirt off the back of that one kid.

"Ms Baker said although the total value of about 10 stolen gifts would have been about $1000 ... including a gold watch with a dragon on the face, a fairy statue and two gift packs of Hilary Duff perfume "

She's lying. Ten gifts with an average value of $100 each. Not with the list she gave the paper. You could probably fill a semi with fairy statues and Hilary Duff perfume for $1000.

These kids are part Aboriginal.

Half cast / quarter cast etc Australian Aboriginals often lose their "Aboriginality" quite quickly when compared to, say, Asians. It's not uncommon to see a half cast with blonde hair, for example.

Meanwhile, I am half white and aside from my height I look like I forded the Rio Grande just this morning, with my pants folded neatly on top of my head.

Again, someone who has never lived in Australia.

This is a country where "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" will be on the shelves at Target for $19.95. In America, they would just throw that shiat at you while screaming, "GO AWAY! GO AWAY!"

Here is my pain:

Brand new CD: $29.95
Brand New DVD: $39.95
Brand New Video Game: $80-$100
Beer (Domestic): $39.00 - 49.00 for a 30 pack carton of crap.

There are a lot of reasons for this: Tarrifs, Import Fees, Price Gouging (big one), paying people that work at Subway, $18.00/hour (You sort of have to when the prices are already outrageously high...) but mostly it's the importing. The Australian government is real dicks about importing goods because they think they are protecting their practically non-existent manufacturing sector.

Honestly, I do (kinda) like it here, at least well enough. I just like to complain (but most Aussies like to complain as well, they just take offense when it's a Yank doing it).

A little taco sauce should cheer them right up.
 
2008-12-23 08:22:22 PM
I'm probably the world's biggest sucker, but I'd send them a buck or 2 for presents, even if the whole story is bullshiat.

???

I laffed at that, and I'm not sure if you are angry at me or agreeing with me.

For some [sad] reason a lot of Australian Aboriginals have adopted African American culture with their goofy names and NBA apparel-wearing bad ass attitudes.
 
2008-12-23 08:29:09 PM
I don't know. It looks like a bullshiat story, although I wouldn't put it above thieves to steal christmas presents.

WFern: Even if they're total victims, I can't feel all that bad. These stories, once they hit the news, ALWAYS result in a massive influx of gifts from the public.

Yep, thanks to the article Santa will show up. That makes me feel a lot less bad for laughing at that picture.

Random thought... I wonder what Hilary Duff perfume smells like. Other than pedophile attractant.

The "not yours" pics made that picture even better. Thank you to both of you for making my day..

The thief stole their inner ears as well.
 
2008-12-23 08:47:03 PM
God I'm cynical. My first reaction was that the little brats should stop crying (assuming that it wasn't a photog trick like, "Hey little Jimmy, I just ran over your dog on the way here!"). Thanks to this story, it'll be the best goddamned Christmas any of them will ever have. Plenty of people still haven't done anything that makes them feel good, or to buy morality credits to offset all of the horrible shiat they've done this year. Watch the good tide come rolling in.

Semi-related to crying boy: You ever wonder about those Feed the Children commercials, and the shots of misery? I mean, you have a film crew there, and I'm pretty sure those guys have sandwiches and other crap. How does that go down? "Wait, no, wait!!! Don't feed him until after we catch the flies covering the dried wheat around his mouth! What the hell's the matter with you, Frank?"

carmody: Wow, there are a lot of farking assholes on Fark. Sometimes I forget for a minute.

Listen, goody two-shoes...We can poke fun because they are merely figments of our imagination here. Get back to me when the family sees this thread and doesn't laugh at the light hearted humor we have put forth for them.

To me, this is like saying a prayer for them.

"Don't be out drinkin shiat with your three tiny kids home alone you stupid coont."

Comes to my mind, does it to yours?
Kinda implies that there weren't any presents anyway, eh?

Stay Cool Babylon: You ever wonder about those Feed the Children commercials, and the shots of misery?


I used to wonder if Sally Struthers had to hold herself back from licking the few moldy crumbs from the lips and fingers of the kids. You know, to protect the kids from the flies.

Then I started wondering if she'd stop with the crumbs.

Damn I was a demented teenager.

My guess is that she didn't buy any presents and made up the story so that people will send cash and presents.

Do they let you go after a heart attack so quickly? I don't think so.

She's faking the whole thing.

/bah humbug.
 
2008-12-23 09:14:11 PM
The presents were stolen when Ms Baker's son Odin...

At least we know that he's got an eye out for the perps.
 
2008-12-23 09:16:01 PM
I think the real holiday cheer would be if the thieves were caught, and the jolly times that would proceed in prison.

"What are you in for?"

"Murder, Rape, and armed robbery. You?"

"Oh man, so me and some mates got tanked and stole some Christmas presents from this family!"

"Classic. So...you're not going to mind me using your ass as a parking lot while I make you call me "Teddy Ruxpin", right?"
