Strangly enough, Drew's married.
2003-03-13 10:55:44 AM  
Gift idea for Drew to his wife:

Bust of her carved from a giant cheeto.

First idea is free, tell your friends folks.

Coincidence? You decide.
2003-03-13 11:06:06 AM  
Candy, almost every single post of yours relates to food. Are you a fatass?
2003-03-13 11:13:04 AM  
Yes, I'm huge.. Thanks for asking.
2003-03-13 11:14:37 AM  
In related news, "Giant Bong Day" to be held the day before "Giant Cheeto Day"; authorities hope giant Cheeto will not fall victim to some dude with the munchies.

"If the story of the final resting place makes it back into's list of wacky web news from the around the world, the circle will be complete."

I guess the circle is officially complete.
2003-03-13 12:35:10 PM  
Will somebody, for the love of god, eat the damn Cheeto already!!
2003-03-13 01:22:25 PM  
Hello? Mr. Giant Cheeto? Your 15 minutes are up, sir.
2003-03-13 01:57:17 PM  
And wait a minute, the article has to do with a piece of food Outz. Sweet Jesus you're a moron.

Circle complete, Please no more cheeto news!!!!!
2003-03-13 05:22:04 PM  
i have just lost my faith in humanity

>crinkle< (sound of tolerance for other humans crushing in brain)
2003-03-13 05:22:39 PM  
They need to make a TheseBurgers filter...
2003-03-13 05:25:16 PM married???
2003-03-13 05:28:19 PM  
Wow, I hope I can be a celebrity in my hometown someday.
2003-03-13 05:29:01 PM  
See it tonight, I'm having a team of specialists cheeto-nap the thing after the party and will then hold it for ransom. We'll see how much this little town really wants their giant cheeto.
2003-03-13 05:33:47 PM  
"There will be a procession at 7 p.m. from KLGA's studios four miles west of Algona (on a road between McGregor and Highway 18) to Sister Sarah's Restaurant on Highway 18 east of Algona. Wilson expects a few county sheriff cars and a fire truck will serve in the procession."

trying to say something witty... can't... i think I just blew a few million synapses.
2003-03-13 05:35:11 PM  
Funny how the chain of events happened.

1.Asshat put giant cheeto on ebay
2.Fark gives giant cheeto widespread audience
3.Algona, IA has a holiday honoring the cheeto

2003-03-13 05:38:10 PM  
Giant Cheeto news is much better than the two previous event Algona made national news for.
1. Multiple, Lizzie Borden-style axe murder in 1987.
2. Nasty tornado in 1979.

They used to have a fun run than followed the path that the tornado cut trough the town. Yep, not a lot to do in Northern Iowa. :-)
2003-03-13 05:38:59 PM  
Where's my farking IOWA tag? We're catching you, Florida, you beotches!
2003-03-13 05:42:57 PM  
all together now

may the circle be unbroken...
2003-03-13 05:46:43 PM  
The webmaster is going to need bodygaurds. People on a website know the hometown of the originators wife. Too strange. Get a life. I meant, get one of your own.
2003-03-13 05:49:12 PM  
When I'm campaigning in Iowa to run for President I promise to go to Algona out of respect to the leader of Fark, and his wife.
2003-03-13 05:49:13 PM  
It's not funny anymore. It was only vaguely amusing to begin with. It was worth a chuckle for a few days...but give it a farking rest.
2003-03-13 05:50:34 PM  
This isn't new. Practicly every small backwater town in the US(and perhaps anywhere) has some quirky object that people come from miles around to see. That's how the towns stay in existence; tourism $$$.

Also, most of these quirky objects tend to be giant versions of small everyday objects. Giant Cheeto, meet the world's biggest lavalamp and the world's biggest ball of yarn(the granddaddy of them all). You'll fit in perfect here in the world of roadside tourist attractions.
2003-03-13 05:50:49 PM  
Has anyone received their 'big fookin cheeto' tshirt yet?

Oh, come on. you know you bought one.
2003-03-13 05:53:41 PM  
When: Thursday March 13th - from '93 til...

Bring Dips. Chips will be provided.

Bonfire. Social Graces. Late Night JengaJam.

4 live bands. 2 on the main stage, 2 on the Nokia SugarPhone SideShow Stage. Live acts TBA*
2003-03-13 06:01:33 PM  
I'm so relieved that the cheeto has been recovered safely after all this time. It is only by the grace of God that it has survived this terrible ordeal. I know that as a community, we can all work through this if we keep the cheeto foremost in our hearts and minds.
2003-03-13 06:07:39 PM  
Candypants: I'd hit it. Who's with me?
2003-03-13 06:10:14 PM  
The only conclusion I can draw from this is that Drew's a giant...Cheeto.

And that doesn't even make sense.
2003-03-13 06:12:14 PM  
My penis is shaped like a giant Cheeto, and orange to.
2003-03-13 06:16:50 PM  
the cheeto must die... its more popular than our president!
2003-03-13 06:17:55 PM  
2003-03-13 06:22:00 PM  
golly-gee, Candypants, you're both purty 'n' sassy. if you ditched the bud lite and snagged a pilsner urquell, you'd be even cooler and then i'd let you reply to my ad.
2003-03-13 06:23:31 PM  
Algona, IA: Blow up doll capital of the world

/i suck
2003-03-13 06:27:49 PM  
Using knowledge from a previous post, AerialP, I'm going to guess that Candypants doesn't give a shiat about your

I believe she's married.
2003-03-13 06:32:13 PM  
Drew is married?

/Takes off miniskirt and abandons all hopes he had to seduce him.
2003-03-13 06:32:31 PM  
the giant Cheeto jumped the shark.
2003-03-13 06:34:25 PM  
You know, he just might have been joking, Candypants. You do tend to enjoy talking about food (who doesn't!); he might have just been picking on you. Put the flamethrower away....slowly...slowly...that's good.

(gotta stick up for my Nashville bros)
2003-03-13 06:39:36 PM  
I'd give this a [image from too old to be available] tag!
2003-03-13 06:39:46 PM  
When is national picture of my cat looking at the giant cheeto day?
2003-03-13 06:39:56 PM  
Yay! Another Candypant's discussion. I am so happy.
2003-03-13 06:41:23 PM  
Rapid_eye_movement, close your eyes and candypants will hit YOU. in the lower abdomen.

And you know what? I am on board with never reading the words "Giant" and "Cheeto" next to each other again.
2003-03-13 06:47:08 PM  
How about Giant Super Cheeto? Or Giant X-TREME Cheeto, for when they make the action figure?

And in a world where a live action pac-man can exist, there will be a giant X-TREME cheeto action figure.
2003-03-13 06:50:07 PM  
Geez, Outz...

You really blew that one. Calling a hot chica a lazy fatass.

Open mouth, insert foot.
2003-03-13 06:50:16 PM  
I just found a really tiny cheeto.
2003-03-13 06:51:50 PM  
I wonder if any new marketing tactics are in the works at Frito-Lay as a result of all this. What if they start manufacturing these on purpose? *gag*
