Pretty interesting and thorough. Surprised they didn't ask about "soda" and "pop". Heard pop on the east coast often, never in California.

Masturbation would have been cool also, given the number on terms on the earlier thread.

Desecrated, Classic Internet.
 
2003-03-04 08:31:53 PM
No. I can safely say I have never wondered that.

That blue zone points right at Nova Scotia, which would make sense since I say Carra-mel all the time. I don't even like it, too sweet for me.

In Canada, soda is what you put in your fridge to keep odours out.

...oops, you can delete that dead link.

No wash vs. warsh?

Also, you can call all tissue paper Kleenex, because they are all the same. You better not call my Mountain Dew a Coke though.

Is anyone else creeped out by this one?

49.I ____ her lifeless body from the pool

There's no entry for "boinked". Darn it.

No.

I beat you to that joke by about 5 hours, Aqueduct_Pocket, but thanks for playing.

I thought I lost all my NYC dialect by now... guess I was wrong!

"'son root foah, Jo-ey!"

I'm used to pronouncing Car-MEL, California and tried to whip that on somebody from CAR-mel, Indiana and got a good what-for. Sorry, I'm not taking pronunciation lessons from a state that gave us Dan Quayl.
 
2003-03-05 02:04:38 AM
Not really.
 
2003-03-05 02:05:12 AM
I have some serious doubts aboot this site...
 
2003-03-05 02:05:19 AM
Also I seem to fall into the "youse" category, although I don't think there was a choice for "youse guys."

Ever wonder why great articles get overlooked by shiat like this?

Not really.

I HATE when people say "carmel". Damnit, there's a middle "a" in the word for a reason!
 
2003-03-05 02:12:11 AM
That "cunning linguist" was not lost on me....

I say care-a-mel. And it's POP darnit, POP!!! :)
 
2003-03-05 02:13:03 AM
site loads very slowly
 
2003-03-05 02:13:20 AM
Would everybody please quit ripping on my Boobies? Believe me, I've submitted a lot better than this but always get ignored or the "Bad kitty." It's not easy posting quickly with a 56K. I have to resort to shiat like this.

You make me soooo sad =(
 
2003-03-05 02:13:31 AM
which ever idiots say it differently...
 
2003-03-05 02:15:36 AM
That site is as slow as mole asses.
 
2003-03-05 02:15:42 AM
I didn't type "Boobies". I swear I typed "Boobies". How the fark did that happen?
 
2003-03-05 02:16:56 AM
boobies = Boobies

something strange is afoot at the circle k
 
2003-03-05 02:17:26 AM
no

Hey B0rg9, speaking of assclowns...here is the King of the Assclowns...

Alea711 - What in the world are you talking about?
 
2003-03-05 02:19:52 AM
everytime I type "+++++ ++++" it comes out boobies.
 
2003-03-05 02:20:17 AM
Care-A-Mel, Pop, Boobies... any other important words I missed?
 
2003-03-05 02:20:29 AM
I hate it when you say something to someone and they reply "do what?"
I didn't say anything about doing anything, bonehead. Say "What?" or "Excuse me?" or "Huh?" or even "Whatchoo talkin' bout Willis?" but don't say "Do what?"!!!
 
2003-03-05 02:20:57 AM
Alea711: It's the Fark filter. It's to prevent people from bragging that they were numero uno in posting to the comments. Now if you reverse that phrase you get not Boobies but Weeners.
 
2003-03-05 02:22:21 AM
Vanmonkeee: You missed "assclown." :)
 
2003-03-05 02:22:35 AM
Do what?
 
2003-03-05 02:23:38 AM
ALEXANDRA

Thanks, I really thought I was losing my mind for a second there. It was like a bad episode of The Twilight Boobies.
 
2003-03-05 02:23:51 AM
Bravo to the cunning linguist! Nice.
 
2003-03-05 02:24:00 AM
Someone make a filter for "Do what"
 
2003-03-05 02:24:35 AM
damn, assclown, well, this thread is pretty dead :p
 
2003-03-05 02:25:11 AM
Alea711: No prob. You must be new. Always glad to help the newbies out. :)
 
2003-03-05 02:25:56 AM
why the HELL does bullshiat like this get posted......and real news get overlooked?!

Who gives a fark who pronounces caramel 'carmel'?!
 
2003-03-05 02:26:42 AM
Other burning ... things.

56. Pantyhose are so expensive anymore that I just try to get a good suntan and forget about it.

WTF?

115.What do you call a point that is purely academic, or that cannot be settled and isn't worth discussing further?

This thread.
 
2003-03-05 02:27:12 AM
LA270Hunter, I dunno. I care.
 
2003-03-05 02:27:38 AM
Ah, gotta have variety. But why isn't there a post up yet about Michael Jackson paying to have voodoo curses placed on people?

(I submitted such a link)
 
2003-03-05 02:28:50 AM
Alexandra.....

THAT is what one would consider fark-worthy..its my understanding that the site was setup for wierd or unusual NEWS stories..

really....I say soda....who cares?
 
2003-03-05 02:29:40 AM
LA270Hunter - It's not news, it's Fark.com. I kinda liked this link.
 
2003-03-05 02:31:45 AM
Andonbray......i stand corrected. I guess there's no hope so I'll just let it be at this:

too much b/s gets put up.......too few that are actually meaningful and/or interesting.
 
2003-03-05 02:32:11 AM
Good GOD what a taxing quiz! Do you say pain in the ass, or pain in the ahss?
 
2003-03-05 02:32:31 AM
LA270Hunter: I noticed that after 9/11 it got just a tad serious. Farking terrorists...we oughtta string Mohammed up by his balls for this!

I need to go to bed...it's 2:35 in the morning here...

Funny!

Alea711

I don't think they're ripping on the link so much as ripping on whoever picked it over the allegedly "great" articles.
If that makes any sense.
This link is fine but I even submitted a few good news stories with video (like a dude who drove over a police cruiser) which seem to be inexplicably absent.
Plus this is very similar to a classic internet site about "pop" and "soda".
Nothing personal.
