Richard Pryor is probably rolling in his grave after this headline.

Is it just me or did the author of this item seem to have attention deficit disorder?

Classic headline! Whoever wrote it rocks!
 
2003-02-27 09:31:12 PM
"'I saw him coming, and it's showtime,' said Brown."

Funny, funny line. I guess he saw the other guy being heroic and refused to be outdone.

"We ran up stairs, most of it on fire. I used pieces of brick and my jacket to cover myself, grabbed two little girls and grown women in there and pulled them out."

just how do you cover yourself with bricks?

"Why do they keep quoting like that" said one man.

The article was so annoying with the switch from quote to actual article.

"God who thought that would look good?" asked a woman on the corner.

Making all the quotes in italics didn't help much either.

"That must have been one hell of a free base" said another man.

I wonder what was going through her head before she figured out that she just blew up the building?
 
2003-02-27 09:32:18 PM
It sounded like a freight train.
 
2003-02-27 09:33:20 PM
Wha't de hell, dis is Tenneessee folk news. Tennessee news makin' Fark? Where I be at? Where I be at?
 
2003-02-27 09:33:39 PM
Worst. Newswriting. Ever.
 
2003-02-27 09:33:39 PM
Damn, and the crack smoking woman didn't even die. What a waste...
 
2003-02-27 09:35:41 PM
Watch me fail.


But if this works, any of you fark P-Shop experts can tell me if this is Photoshopped or not?

"Sometimes my eyes make a squeaky sound when I shut them tight"

" I have a bunion"

"I Can't read"

"Where did i leave my plate?"

Actually, IIRC, Richard Pryor didn't catch fire via crack pipe... he wanted to kill himself so I think he set his house on fire with himself inside...

I wonder what was going through her head before she figured out that she just blew up the building?

No idea, but my guess is that immediatly afterward, it was bricks.

J00sb0x, i didn't get it in the last thread and i don't get it now.

It's striking me as funny for some reason. I like it when people adhere to a running gag in each thread (a la Ace_Lightning and I_Was_There).

I'm sure it would get annoying, but for now, I'm entertained. Maybe I'm just easily amused.
 
2003-02-27 09:38:22 PM
Whoever came up with this hilarious headline is going to Hell. ;)
 
2003-02-27 09:38:34 PM
Also, apparently I can't spell the word "immediately" correctly.
 
2003-02-27 09:38:37 PM
crack

is

whack

/whitney houston ensues
 
2003-02-27 09:39:20 PM

Thats

A

really

annoying

writing

style
 
2003-02-27 09:41:02 PM
This is honestly one of the worst headlines I've seen for a Fark article. It implies that a crack addict was the cause of the explosion which simply isn't true after reading the article. I was seriously thinking "Oh god that's terrible!" Aw well.

//sigh
 
2003-02-27 09:41:39 PM
"Hey, don't light that, there's a gas leak! Are you smoking crack?"
 
2003-02-27 09:43:00 PM
Actually Cscx Richard Pryor Set Himself on fire by free basing cocaine with alcohol. It wasn't a suicide attempt. It also led to some of his funniest stand up Comedy.

True, but I'll bet for a few seconds she thought she got some truely hardcore shiat.
 
2003-02-27 09:44:30 PM
well, all i have to say is..

They don't like you, never will...They slip you the happy pill..

if that means anything to anyone.
 
2003-02-27 09:44:41 PM
Is it just me or did the two guys sound way too excited.


"I saw him coming, and it's showtime," said Brown.



"It was like crazy adrenaline rush. [relieved breath] Just happy to get the kids out."
 
2003-02-27 09:45:28 PM
woohoo

mmmm.....burger.....

"Authorities told News 2, a woman apparently broke in. There was a natural gas leak. Investigators said she allegedly lit up a crack pipe, and when she did, there was an explosion that blew out the side of the building."

CarbonScoring: Which part didn't you understand?
 
2003-02-27 09:46:37 PM
Carbon, wtf are you talking about? Learn to READ.

"The apartment where the blast originated is vacant. Authorities told News 2, a woman apparently broke in. There was a natural gas leak. Investigators said she allegedly lit up a crack pipe, and when she did, there was an explosion that blew out the side of the building. The woman is alive tonight at Vanderbilt after suffering severe burns."

Along with fellow members Micheal Jackson and Richard Pryor, this woman has joined in this esteemed philanthropic association:

The Ignited Negro College Fund.
