Is there an award for headline of the year? If so, I nominate subby.

I bet Olbermann steals it for Countdown tonight.

I have nothing valuable to add to this thread besides a hearty LOLZ for subby. Well played.

I think I just stepped in a big pile of win.
 
2010-02-18 07:15:12 PM  
I tried thinking of a funny headline for this story earlier, I had nothing.

Subby wins! +1

Oh, good. Admins were up for a little fun today.

Beautifully done, subby. Bra-vo.
 
2010-02-18 07:19:33 PM  
While I'm not a fan of teabaggers the fark hate for them is so overblown and disproportionate it makes alot of them seem almost reasonable. The birthers are idiots and complete mornons the avarage teabagger is mostly fed up with overall taxes and government and isn't really that into one party or the other. They are generally conservatives that feel let down by the republicans for not being fiscally responsible and civil rights abuses, and feel the democrats are just as bad or worse for being fiscally irresponsible and governement intrusion into matters it has no bussiness.

C'mon, out yourself, Subby, you magnificent bastard. Step up and accept your due accolades.
 
2010-02-18 07:28:13 PM  
In case you didn't know this, some people who use FARK are black and might find this offensive.
 
2010-02-18 07:28:14 PM  
I have never laughed so hard at a headline...bravo subby
 
2010-02-18 07:28:20 PM  
Sometimes posts can't make a headline funnier.
 
2010-02-18 07:28:45 PM  
Also, until decided otherwise, this is my HOTY winner at the moment
