Mods, have you no sense of decency?

Of course they don't mention us... That would give away one of their sources.
 
2003-03-11 02:27:34 PM
Article's a week late, I was out of town.

What's really funny is I was talking with CNN just that afternoon and they still left us out. I've got their email addresses now tho, muhahaha

An internet celeb for having a slightly large cheeto.

Life is wierd.
 
2003-03-11 02:28:02 PM
Biatches!
 
2003-03-11 02:28:06 PM
It ain't easy, being cheesy.
 
2003-03-11 02:28:44 PM
CNN.com really sucks. They are always the LAST to get breaking headlines latley, foxnews is killing them and even MSNBC is as well. i know this story is not breaking news and its been there for a while but still

Haha Drew. Give 'em hell!

BTW, this asshat with the giant Cheeto has gotten way too much attention. He's been on radio shows, tv shows, newspaper articles, etc. All for a stupid extra-large piece of junk food.
 
2003-03-11 02:29:58 PM
Who the fark spells it "Chee-to?"
 
2003-03-11 02:29:59 PM
They didn't mention yahoo news?
 
2003-03-11 02:30:16 PM
I am going to auction off a piece of cheese that came off my hairy ass, it was way bigger that that little thing.

I'm only 90 miles away. Can you say Roadtrip??? I think I'll make a T-shirt.....

"2003 Roadtrip to see the Giant Cheeto"
 
2003-03-11 02:31:16 PM
Yeah, but who did Fark steal the Cancerous Cheeto article from?

*vomits orange Cheeto puke all over CNN*
 
2003-03-11 02:31:42 PM
I would've eaten the damn thing already.
 
2003-03-11 02:32:05 PM
Hey, we should thank CNN for not listing us. After all, while probably responsible for the "photo of me looking at the giant cheeto", the "Photo of someone looking at the giant cheeto tshirt", and maybe even the radio interviews.. you KNOW it was our fault the bids got into the millions. :) CNN is just keeping some of our younger members out of jail.

The folks in Algona, Iowa -- a one-movie-theater town with 5,970 residents -- can hardly wait to get their hands on the giant Chee-to. They plan to shellac it, lay it on plush velvet and put it under Plexiglas.

"This giant Chee-to could be a boon to our local economy," said Tom Straub, owner of Algona's Sister Sarah's Bar. "Anything we can do to attract visitors to our town would be good."



BWHAHAHAHAHAH! This ranks up there with the "world's largest ball of twine" and the "house of mud" from National Lampoon's Vacation.
 
2003-03-11 02:32:22 PM
He didn't even say, "Thanks FARK for my 15 minutes of fame." What a polesmoker.

Cscx Actually, there is a hyphen in the name on the package.

Ugh... Cheeto puke is the WORST.
:P

Hey Cheeto man, you got a phonecall, Sonny Crockett says he wants his shirt back.


For some people like this guy, 15 minutes of fame is 15 minutes too long.


 
2003-03-11 02:33:00 PM
Just wait till that giant cheeto explodes and all these little spiders come out...
 
2003-03-11 02:33:25 PM
Hey! Fark made you famous cheeto man. Give us some props.
 
2003-03-11 02:33:31 PM
But isn't it nice to know that we were all here, right as it happened? ... *sniff* .... ah, the memories....
 
2003-03-11 02:33:34 PM
I'd hi... uh, eat it!
 
2003-03-11 02:33:37 PM
They didn't mention FARK? I feel cheeted!

Who the fark spells it "Chee-to?"
Pualley Shore.

Especially when he's got the "Mun-chies"
Or he's picking up his "Food-Stamps",
or working the "Fry Stay-Shun"
 
2003-03-11 02:34:04 PM
CNN is a has-been.
 
2003-03-11 02:34:29 PM
>>Who the fark spells it "Chee-to?"

Not even Frito Lay!
 
2003-03-11 02:34:38 PM
Drew ..I was talking with CNN just that afternoon and they still left us out. ..

I hope you send them a rocket for not mentioning sources!
 
2003-03-11 02:35:06 PM
I just heard on the radio that they had detonated that Cheeto over the Florida panhandle. Or something like that.
 
2003-03-11 02:35:22 PM
Seeing others kiss the ass of a certain website owner makes me want to puke.
 
2003-03-11 02:35:41 PM
What do you expect from a station that considers reality tv shows and Michael Jackson the top news stories of the hour?
 
2003-03-11 02:35:43 PM
I just submitted an article about the moon landing. Maybe it will get posted next week...
 
2003-03-11 02:37:57 PM
Extra bit of weirdness from this whole story: I *grew up* in Algona, graduated from high school there - and I'm Drew's wife. I just called Bryce Wilson, the DJ who headed the campaign to bring the cheeto to Algona. He definitely found out about the cheeto from Fark. He even told CNN he found the cheeto on Fark, and credits Fark on his radio show - Thanks, Bryce! Bad CNN for neglecting us!

A 'reality show' for this guy can't be far away....

Yaaaa. The way they're practically sucking lowtax's cock over in the SA Comedy goldmine thread is downright disgusting.

This and the next thread are repeats...Even the titles are identical.
 
2003-03-11 02:42:29 PM

I thought Drew's 'wife' inflated.

"If you love cheese, this is the Chee-to for you. It's beyond dangerously cheesy."

Mmmm....dangerously cheesy.
 
2003-03-11 02:44:20 PM
So, will the Curator of the Giant Cheeto be an elected office, or a plum appointed position given out to big campaign contributors?
 
2003-03-11 02:44:49 PM
The explanation for how the cheeto got that big?

"We call it Seasoning Accumulation," Cogan said. "If you love cheese, this is the Chee-to for you. It's beyond dangerously cheesy."

HAHAHAhahaha....
 
2003-03-11 02:45:39 PM
What website wasn't mentioned? I hate not knowing the answer!
 
2003-03-11 02:45:44 PM
