This is good. We haven't had any mysterious white particles in the news for a while.
2003-02-01 12:10:43 AM  
Newgrounds ruined that song for me with the Taint of Love flash.
2003-02-01 12:13:29 AM  
..and if a flash can be nsfw than that is.
2003-02-01 12:23:41 AM  
Florida's involved - might be coke.
2003-02-01 12:24:46 AM  
Yeah, this headline was clever...

The FIRST time it was used.

Except last time I think it was tainted meat.
2003-02-01 12:24:50 AM  
This was in Georgia, the poisonous chemical is either chloride or deprovera! Take your pick..

B0rg9: I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry after watching that.
2003-02-01 12:25:38 AM  
Damn you Soft Cell and your Tainted Love.
2003-02-01 12:25:55 AM  
My first accepted proud
2003-02-01 12:26:34 AM  
Didn't read the article, but kudos on the headline.

Gonna have that damn song in my head all night now...
2003-02-01 12:27:08 AM  
Insane_Cellist: I was thinking the same thing about B0rg9's link
2003-02-01 12:28:35 AM  
I'm sure it's just a scam by the Red Cross to shake down more medical dollars.
2003-02-01 12:31:28 AM  
Please don't let such bad blood come between us......
2003-02-01 12:31:41 AM  
Sometimes ive got to *uh uh* runaway...
2003-02-01 12:32:54 AM  
Bloody Mary + Typhoid Mary = Drunk Boobies with Tainted Blood
2003-02-01 12:33:47 AM  
Mashuren The whole "Tainted Love" thing has been used for a long time on Fark... It just never stops being funny.
2003-02-01 12:34:57 AM

Sometimes ive got to *uh uh* runaway...

Sometimes I feel I've got to run away...

Sorry, but I spent a good portion of the 80's working security at a goth bar. Never gonna get that song out of my head.

In related news, the stock of Baxter International Inc. plunged today . .

Terrorist have tainted our blood supply

We must bomb Iraq now !!!
2003-02-01 12:41:19 AM  
Those are just some bone chips.

2003-02-01 12:43:56 AM  
We must bomb Iraq now !!!

not just yet... looks like we're going back to the u.n. for yet another resolution... either crap or get off the can, gwb...
2003-02-01 12:46:57 AM  
We should build a great wall, worked for China.
2003-02-01 12:49:06 AM  
Borg9: HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! That link was the most drop-dead funny thing I've seen in a long time! I looked at the original "tainted blood" story on TotalFark quite a few times, and just could not find anything to say, as it was about as thought provoking as a crop report. You however, saved the whole thread, and are to be congratulated.
2003-02-01 12:50:35 AM  
Great headline.
2003-02-01 12:52:44 AM  
What happened to "We resolve to let the US do what ever the fark it wants"?
2003-02-01 12:55:57 AM  
clever, clever headline :-)
2003-02-01 12:57:31 AM  
"white particles" in blood?

They're called white blood cells. Yeesh.
2003-02-01 12:58:07 AM  
Actually the headline was tainted corn the first time it was done. Yeah, funny that time.
2003-02-01 01:00:47 AM  
I've always wanted to know what do they do for gay people and swedes, who as everyone knows, do not have blood, simply a cold black fluid that poisons the croplands and draws locusts.

Skippin' on down the road to hell.
2003-02-01 01:08:35 AM  

What in the hell-hole was that?
2003-02-01 01:10:47 AM  
The headline was so funny that I don't even care if babies die.
2003-02-01 01:14:06 AM  
Borg9: funny find. i have to words to say, rectal squirts?
too funny
2003-02-01 01:17:36 AM  
Ha, great headline!
2003-02-01 01:36:44 AM  
Anthrax in the blood! ahhhhhhh!
2003-02-01 01:37:01 AM  
Soft Cell didn't originally do tainted love. Damnit all to hell!
2003-02-01 01:40:33 AM  
Yes, but when Marc Almond says he doesn't 'pray that way', he damn well means it. (Read the autobiography, won't say anymore.)

White specks in blood - I agree. Them's some nasty white blood cells. Or plastic. Can't you just, sort of, fish them out or something? Dump all the blood into a big vat and use a fishbowl net?
2003-02-01 01:53:21 AM  
Better white particles in my blood than red particles in my sperm...I always say...
2003-02-01 01:54:42 AM  
What stays white while soaking in blood? Whatever it is, you can bet they'll be eating it next week on Fear Factor.

2003-02-01 02:19:00 AM  
Apparently these "Strange white particles" were congealed fat leftover from that lawsuit against McDonalds that was dismissed...
2003-02-01 02:28:58 AM  


Yes it's Friday night, but still, some of us with no life and or social life are working you see....

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh​hhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh​hhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh​hhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Ahem. As I was saying, please include the NSFW tag on links that makes sounds as well.
Thank you.

Today sucked gerbil dick.

2003-02-01 02:29:58 AM  
Ooops. Sorry. Didn't mean to yell.
2003-02-01 02:39:13 AM  
What are you talking about, Ku_No_Ichi?
2003-02-01 02:43:00 AM  
B0rg9's post.
Sorry. I'm inebriated and trying to pick a fight with people who are no longer posting so as to spare myself the grief and hurt feelings of getting flamed.

But thanks for asking. :-)
2003-02-01 02:44:41 AM  
Has anyone ever told you that you bear a striking resemblance to the son of the Christian god?

It could just be me...
2003-02-01 02:47:16 AM  
Well, he did add this, about two and a half minutes after the fact:
02-01-03 12:13:29 AM B0rg9
..and if a flash can be nsfw than that is.

But, yeah, I look damn good. (c:
2003-02-01 02:49:37 AM  
Yes it's Friday night, but still, some of us with no life and or social life are working you see....
So, you are working inebriated? Are you a taster at a beer plant? Where do I get this job?
2003-02-01 02:52:27 AM  
Picky picky.
Sheesh. I figure that if I don't start complaining until I've read half way through half of what someone said before I've even read the article that......

....I'm a relly big jerk?
2003-02-01 02:54:41 AM  
O.K. You win.
2003-02-01 02:57:47 AM  

I attempted to explain it in the Cuba thread just because no one's there.
Being intoxicated, however, it was, I'm sure, sublimely incoherent.
2003-02-01 02:58:40 AM  
hmm.. the pharmacetical(sp?) company i work for announced today that the awaited merger with Baxter is NOT going to happen.... wonder if their blunder had anything to do with it? damn that rhymed... and im glad i didnt buy stock in our company, (even though they offered to match my purchase).,.. because now that we're not merging,... theres no money to be made.
2003-02-01 03:00:29 AM  
Well, I am hoping I have found a new friend. One who can threadjack. Email me?
2003-02-01 03:45:39 AM  
Typical over-reaction. The blood is not tainted, it is potentially tainted. It's probably just a defect in manufacturing or something like that, but they are trying to take precautions.
2003-02-01 03:57:27 AM  
So after checking out B0rg9's disturbing flash link I head over to MSNBC to check out the news and what sidebar story jumps out at me?

FDA urges 'dirty bomb' treatment

Oh the humanity! I feel so unclean

In tribute to Bill Simmons Sports Guy, I will now light myself on fire.
2003-02-01 04:19:19 AM  
I can't believe I clicked that link.

Must shower now.
2003-02-01 05:18:31 AM  
Who did the original Tainted Love? Wasn't it Petula Clark, back during the '60's?
2003-02-01 07:48:17 AM  
I think the Skinny Puppy version of Tainted Love is neato. The Manson one isn't bad, either.
2003-02-01 07:48:37 AM  
Sorry about missing the nsfw -- I tried to make it up by saying it was nsfw in the next post. Oh well, sorry anyway for anyone who clicked on it. It's really just bad, as in not good, with only small amounts of funny mixed in.
2003-02-01 11:45:39 AM  
Hrmm, maybe those people that refuse blood transfusions aren't such crackpots after all...
2003-02-01 12:36:28 PM  
Songs stuck in my head too. I'm listening to biatchin' Camaro to try to remove.
2003-02-02 02:53:32 AM  
t-t-t-taiiinted meat
2003-02-02 08:52:59 AM  
Heh heh... Headline is quite amusing.
