I have been saying for a long time that someone would eventually have to do this but I didn't think it would be us.

Perhaps someone should tell the UN that we already have a government ready for Afghanistan, we just need the current government adequately "toppled".

(cue the Farkistan national anthem)

We should be careful not to mix real news and farce in headlines; this was done a few months ago and people were up in arms. Oh, how short our memories are.

Hey! A practical use for that "How to design a flag" link from a couple weeks/months ago...

Who'd a thunk it? :P

None of those flag-nazis will be criticizing the Farkistani flag, not if the Grand Poobah of Jive, Groove, and related Phenomena has anything to say about it. Which, of course, he does not, but just the same...

Public knowledge mixed with common sense stirred by the stick of Drudge means what, exactly?
That we should believe his crap?
This line of crap was particularly entertaining... MOstly because, when offended, Russia is very PUBLIC about their concerns...
"The Guardian has also learned that two large US Hercules transport aircraft landed in [DRUDGE HAS REDACTED PORTIONS OF THIS STORY OUT OF RESPECT FOR AMERICAN TROOPS AND THEIR FAMILIES]... Such a build-up would incur the wrath of Russia which views the central Asian republics as its backyard. "
The Guardian didn't learn dick...

First we're going to bomb the hell out of your goats. Then, we're going to invade your pile of hot dirt. Take that.

What would the national anthem to Farkistan be? I vote "Elvis is Everywhere" by Mojo Nixon.
 
2001-09-21 12:41:31 PM
Oooooohhhhh.... That's a good one, Skwidd!!
 
2001-09-21 01:12:20 PM
It's gotta be something unique, I'd think. I'll try to see if I can with soemthing.

Oh, and it's gotta have the line "Boobies and Beer" in it.
 
2001-09-21 01:12:48 PM
Well, I still think Frank Zappa's "Titties And Beer" is a pretty close fit...>
 
2001-09-21 02:15:18 PM
We'd need to bombflat the Iran place and that other Pakistan place

Then Afghanistan one cake-walk
 
2001-09-21 03:56:47 PM
Skwidd:

I'll cast my vote for "Elvis is Everywhere"
 
2001-09-21 05:21:55 PM
Heh, "Evlis is Everywhere", I can vote for that (I literally just finished watch 3000 miles to Graceland).

I'm surprised noboyd else thought this was .
