"If The Man Show were a Web site, it would be Fark. com."

Ewww. Drew should complain for that right there...
2003-07-19 11:32:01 AM  
hmmm...I'm female and 36. I guess I should quit reading Fark.

Hell no!

/loves the Man Show too
2003-07-19 12:28:40 PM  
Wait, she's called Self-Confidence Cheryl? And I thought Storm was bad...
2003-07-19 12:48:35 PM  
That article was terrible. It makes Fark sound like a frat party. A better definition would be a forum for highly intelligent discussion, and strongbad related flamewars.
2003-07-19 12:48:56 PM  
Oh, there are a handful of subscribers who pony up for a premium service called Total Fark.

When this hits FreeFark, you cheapskates know what to do.
2003-07-19 01:10:41 PM  
I always thought Fark was more like that movie, "Freaks".

The Fark corps is heavily male, 18-35. What? Damn. I come here to meet chicks.
2003-07-19 01:30:23 PM  
Fark is not, of course, a real word, but it has a certain ring to it: a menacing silliness, if you will.

Why is it I picture a balloon with teeth as an image for menacing silliness?
2003-07-19 01:49:52 PM  
Some parts of this article were less than flattering, but I guess any press is good press.
2003-07-19 01:55:36 PM  
Sounds accurate..

Wait...I'm a 26 year old female...

should I be here?
2003-07-19 02:09:38 PM  
All we need now is to be linked on CNN...
2003-07-19 02:12:20 PM  
Here is what you need to know about the grand high pooh-bah of Fark-dom:

Why have I not been informed of the existance of this word? I will now say 'pooh-bah' at least twice in every conversation I hold.
2003-07-19 02:16:34 PM  
I'd complain that little Storm wasn't accurately represented.

2003-07-19 02:18:16 PM  
I offer Drew eleventy billion dollars for fark.

I do hope someone offers him a stupid amount of money. Always good for cool people to get loaded.
2003-07-19 02:20:31 PM  
Drew should NEVER sell Fark. If someone does offer him money for it, it's just because of the "5 million" people that they'd be reaching, and we'd lose a proud global landmark. Don't cave, Drew.
2003-07-19 02:20:37 PM  
"We're most certainly for sale, if somebody offered me a stupid amount of money."

Here Drew - 0.09 - a stupid amount of money. When can I get the keys?

or did you mean stupid up the way?
2003-07-19 02:21:02 PM  
Hate to be a broken record:
I'm a 28 year old female, should I be here?
2003-07-19 02:22:29 PM  
I dunno woodstock. what are you wearing?

/too young to be a proper dirty old man
2003-07-19 02:22:33 PM  
But, he insists, "We're most certainly for sale, if somebody offered me a stupid amount of money."

I'm trying to figure out a way to twist that comment on par with the Grocho Marx line "I would never join an organization that would accept me as a member!"

2003-07-19 02:24:53 PM  
We certainly want all of you women here!
2003-07-19 02:27:24 PM  
Ohferfuxake It's hot here, about 85 degrees. Use your imagination. ;)
2003-07-19 02:33:12 PM  
Anyone who tells Drew not to "cave" to the offer of an absurd amount of money (which, I'd venture, would be at least seven figures if this place turned ANY kind of a profit) is either being a hypocrite or an asshat.

If you could pimp five million people for at least 20 cents a head, you'd do it. I know I would.
2003-07-19 02:33:15 PM  
Heck yeah,praise to the Farkettes! By the way,how many of us are over 35?

2003-07-19 02:34:18 PM  

You're never too young to be a dirty old man as long as there are cute girls younger than you to ogle.
2003-07-19 02:38:25 PM  
I may be getting older but those high school girls
stay the same age....
2003-07-19 02:38:31 PM  
They have the Internet in Kentucky?
2003-07-19 02:40:01 PM  
Damn. I'm all of 16 and female. I DEFINATELY don't belong here. Hmmm.

2. You are not stupid.

AHA! You've proven your own silly stupidity with that one line. Farkers /are/ stupid!

Viva la Fark!
2003-07-19 02:41:48 PM  
Great write-up, Drew. Good to see that you're gettng some publicity in the media.
2003-07-19 02:42:15 PM  
I'm not quite sure if she was bashing Fark or just trying to be 'funny.'

I have boobies, am over 25 and I still love Fark, so take that Cheryl!
2003-07-19 02:42:46 PM  
Ok, I'd like to apologize for calling all fark women sluts.
2003-07-19 02:43:50 PM  

I know the feeling. When I was 19, screwing a 17-year-old girl was fun. Now, at 26, while it's still legal, it sure doesn't FEEL legal.

(age of consent in my state is 16)
2003-07-19 02:44:09 PM  
well im heavily male, or at least a heavy male... but im dressed like a 26 year old girl, should i be hear?
2003-07-19 02:45:56 PM  
Most farkers could write a better article than that one, so I don't know what to make of it. It makes fark sound like some moronic chatroom, and I do not hang around with morons! Or in chatrooms either!

I'm, uh, "over 35."
2003-07-19 02:45:56 PM  
One-third make more than $75,000 a year.

And that puts me squarely in the two-thirds category.
2003-07-19 02:46:42 PM  
buzz, you make 150,ooo dollares a year!

2003-07-19 02:47:06 PM  
Maybe whoever wrote the article claiming it was sooo male merely fails to see there can be women reading content such as this...and...what about the weeners? hm? less often, but still definately a part of fark...

I just wonder if the lack of posting(website links and on threads) about overly feminine subject makes this assclown journalist think there arent really any females around here....

/stops talking before it sounds like feminism
/thinks journalist is an assclown
/stops rambling

nirvana sucks
2003-07-19 02:48:16 PM  
I'm a 25-year-old female that happens to like worshipping mammeries ( and don't forget the weeners) too. I suppose that puts me into a different category altogether. Dammit.

/used to being the oddball
2003-07-19 02:49:16 PM  
penguin, are you single?
2003-07-19 02:51:22 PM  
Note: The word "defintely" does not now, has never, and hopefully will never contain the letter A.

/spelling nazi
2003-07-19 02:51:52 PM  
36, got boobies, don't make over $75K. I love being in the minority.
2003-07-19 02:53:12 PM  
If you, arcanum, are referring to my username...well then...

Oh yeah, well RPGs suck!
/sticks out tounge.

Ok, not really, but that is hurtful and unnecessary...
and if youre not referring to me...then...well....I'll just be egocentric and still assume you are

/sits in the corner and mopes
2003-07-19 02:54:23 PM  
Penguin - my fav. place to eat is Hooters.

I drag my husband there at least 2+ times a month.

Up with BOOBIES!
2003-07-19 02:57:16 PM  
what the fark does arcanum have to do with rpgs? actually since i dont play rpgs, i guess i should assume that there is some relationship...

a well,
nirvana doesnt suck anymore, since you cant suck with a blown off head...
2003-07-19 02:57:17 PM  
I don't think that article was a very accurate depiction of fark. But again, any press is good press.
2003-07-19 02:57:40 PM  
I am a farkette...I watch the Man show....I think this site farking rules....I am woman, see me flash! WOOO-HOOO!
2003-07-19 02:57:47 PM  
Jpar: 2/3s isn't a minority (with the $75k a year thing).
2003-07-19 02:59:21 PM  
You are right, nuckleheaded....but it definitely has one more vowel there than what you typed.

/says thank you to
