Anyone else tired of pirates? Me too

Here's what happened: media ran the initial pirates capture Alabama story (which no doubt scared some residents of Mobile into nearby grocery stores to stock up on milk and eggs). They were shocked at the extra traffic it got. To keep the momentum going, they ran even more stories about pirates. Pirates are cool! Here's hoping it's beaten to death by now. It's already April and we haven't gotten to the shark stories yet. And don't get me started on the The Pirate Bay verdict...

Fark was at Notacon this weekend, and it was terrific. Great talks, great tech, good times all around. Thanks to everyone who came to the Fark Party on Friday night - who knew there was an actual drink called a Blue Screen of Death?

Drew's not in this week, but here are some of our favorite headlines from last week. My personal favorite:

Vatican rejects Obama's choices for ambassador because all of them are pro-choice. STAINED GLASS PARKING LOT

This certainly should win "comment of the week"

No headline was better than any of mine, so Drew just gave up and went home.

The Admins decided, "you know what? his is just so spectacular, amazing, and sensational we are giving up early for HoTY and giving it to him."

/in reality.....none of that happened.

Aww, no love for "Jerly Lyngdoh is a 26-year old trapped inside a two-year old's body. He should probably have used more lube" ?

DammitIForgotMyLogin: Aww, no love for "Jerly Lyngdoh is a 26-year old trapped inside a two-year old's body. He should probably have used more lube" ?

Was looking for that one. By far the best this week, come on guys...

This thread is boring now.
 
2009-04-20 04:55:50 PM  
the david lynch/moby headline isn't funny, regardless of what the video looks like or the track sounds like.
 
2009-04-20 05:00:54 PM  
Is it me, or did someone else read the headline, "A world without anal sex...."

/in a world....
//without anal sex....
///one man.....
 
2009-04-20 05:02:25 PM  
yes, I got one. My life is now complete
 
2009-04-20 05:03:48 PM  
Damn...didn't make the list this week.

Although, to be fair, my submissions this week sucked more than usual.
 
2009-04-20 05:04:43 PM  
The NaSkAr: yes, I got one. My life is now complete

Great. Don't get any blood on the carpet :D
 
2009-04-20 05:08:15 PM  
You know, I was thinking (always a bad idea to let me do that, folks):

Is there anyway to re-open commenting for these when the HotW comes around? Seems many people get to miss the headlines and might want to comment on them, but a lot of them are past the five days and closed to commenting.

Perhaps a 24-hour special unlock for the threads in these posts?

Just a thought.
