Some good headlines this week. Been seeing some good quality coming in the last few weeks. I gotta say, the submitters have really started upping their game. My favorite three from this week:

- Printer ink tanker truck overturns. Damages estimated at seven hundred trillion dollars

- Coyote attack defeated by teenager, ACME

- Jennifer Love Hewitt (moderate stiffening) to star in TV show about prostitution (full rigidity) on Lifetime (some softening) with Cybill Sheppard (complete flaccidity)


Good work, everyone. See you next week

What the....

Oh.

Yeah. Yeah it is. It's terrible. You should go somewhere else. Fark is awful. You shouldn't have even registered here in the first place. Next, you'll be seeing articles posted on other websites. Sometimes even repeats.

We'll miss you.
