Someday, I'm going to find a way to work "Pardon me Roy, is that the cat that chewed your new shoes?" into a headline.

But not today.

Joke of the Day:

Did you hear about the skinny guy who went to Alaska and came back a husky farker?
 
2009-03-23 05:27:16 PM  
That was elaborate, but appreciated.

I'm surprised Governor Palin would allow this sort of socialized, government-run healthcare in her state.
 
2009-03-23 05:30:17 PM  
subby - you sir (or m'am) should make the Fark top headlines of 2009!!

You grabbed a boisterous laugh from me with that headline, subby
 
2009-03-23 05:31:40 PM  
You've been waiting for a while for a chance to use that one, haven't you subby?

Long way to go for an Aleutian joke. Nice.

/WWYD for an Aleutian joke? Would you.. would you kill a man?
 
2009-03-23 05:33:25 PM  
I thought Mrs. Palin said "Thanks but no thanks!" to Federal assistance.
 
2009-03-23 05:35:32 PM  
There, but for the graces of any gods that might exist, go I.

golf clap, subby.
 
2009-03-23 05:37:06 PM  
Terrible. Too forced. But everyone else seems to like it so carry on.

Of course subby has been sitting on that line. My 70 year old mom sent me an email with that and several other dumb puns... Nothing new in the Intertubes.
 
2009-03-23 05:38:24 PM  
Went a long way to get there
 
2009-03-23 05:39:58 PM  
I thought you tried a little hard on that one, subby. Like the joke that takes too long to get to the punchline.
 
2009-03-23 05:40:26 PM  
Juneau what, I found the headline quite amusing
 
2009-03-23 05:41:47 PM  
I think I'm in the minority, but I'm with Joey JoJo Junior Shabadoo. You gotta reach your punchline before the crowd loses interest, which in Fark is

I agree. It was a good try, but subby worked too hard to get there.

/just my opinion

A Chinese man walks into an optometrist's office. The doctor examines him and says "You have a cataract." The patient says "No I don't, I have a Rincoln Continental.
 
2009-03-23 05:44:59 PM  
Okay, what is the name for a combination groan and laugh? Because that's what came out of me.

+1, Subby. Now to read TFA...
 
2009-03-23 05:49:36 PM  
Live in an economically unsustainable place and get socialized healthcare courtesy of the blue-state taxpayers who pay well above the odds! Praise Jeebus!
 
2009-03-23 05:50:06 PM  
I wish the US Navy would fly an optomist in to Washington. They could use one.

Any tattoos? On his forehead perhaps?

Surely, he'll listen to reason.

Subby, that was absolutely horrible and you should be ashamed of yourself.

She was initially against it until they said she could fly along with them and shoot some of the residents from the air.

So back to the article... a two year old with a Cavity? This is dental care of British proportions!

(nice headline, I groaned)
 
2009-03-23 06:26:52 PM  
That subby can make a pun like nomeone else.

OK, I think this may be similar to the soda vs. pop argument. Queeb or queef? Is this a regional thing?
