It's not that we don't, but wholesale prices do kick in after 4 dozen.

Where does it say that subby is an American?

Also, welcome to fark.

One more, or less, would have been tragic. But as it stands, it's hilarious.

As an American ex-pat, I would have laughed had it been a fire in southern California. Still woulda been sad, but this is Fark, and this is what Fark headlines do. If I wanted compassion, I wouldn't be looking here.

guess if you want compassion...look for a dead soldier thread

This headline and the comments that are here are proof positive that the big red guy himself has access to the Fark member list and simply reserves a seat in hell for us all when we sign up for membership.

We're what's wrong with the world today.

But damn man it's funny!

Exactly! I come here to lighten up and laugh at you bunch of twisted farkers.
That has nothing to do with my concern for humanity.
Besides...it ain't like some random farker died.

We don't value domestic life either, so don't get your panties in a bunch.

So what's so funny or "Fark-y" about this?

Yes, it IS sad that people died, especially so many, but disasters happen, and people die, there doesn't seem to be anything unusual about this story.

You shouldn't make the assumption that subby is American, this is the World Wide Web after all.

How am I trolling when the subtard and you idiots laugh at the death of hundreads of people.

And just four articles down in the main page the death of ONE soldier is "Sad" and tragic?

Well if this is truly an unbiased black humor site then going by this quote from the article "If I could describe Stephan, I would picture him flying through the air on a dirt bike living his life on the edge," I would have expected to see in the headline something along the lines of:

"Soldier loved riding his dirt bike, now he's just riding the dirt"
"Man joins Hell's Angels"

or so forth...so don't lecture me on how do I know which country the subtard is from, it's farking obvious.
 
2009-10-19 09:14:03 AM  
So, Subby, all this horrific loss of human life and TOO GROSS is what you came up with???

HIGH FIVE!

Seriously??

\+1 for Subby
 
2009-10-19 09:17:04 AM  
It is amazing to me how many of you don't know that 144 is equal to one gross of something so therefore 288 would be 2 gross of something. Haven't you people ever bought anything from Oriental Trading Co. before?

The HEADLINE is funny. The SITUATION not so much.

//FARK!


coffee pls.

Sure, jump on the ever-fashionable "I hate America" bandwagon. REAL original. Good headlines BTW :)

OK, there is no oil there and it is populated by brown people who are no threat to Israel. The US doesn't give a shiat.

There are gold mines in that province.

Think about it the next time you go to a hospital and a very competent Filipino doctor, nurse or med tech deal with you.
