It's my birthday :)

EMPEROR FARTBONGO!

Is Fartbongo something that is actually said outside the realms of Fark?


I did a Google search on Fartbongo and, though most of the results appeared to be Fark or Fark-related, it does seem to be spreading. (Some people are spelling it as two words!)

It's also my son's birthday. What an honor that he remembered!

It's Cinco de Maya. It's a signal to Marxist Mexicans.

I often feel Obama is too right-wing and pro-war for me, but articles like this one help lock in my support for him.

Aarontology: Anyone else notice that the conservatives seem to pay an awful lot of attention to significant events in the history of Communism?

Odd, that. It's almost as if they mark it on their calendars.


That's because they suck Stalin.

The Troll-in-Chief strikes again. He also made his campaign slogan, "Forward," which is similar to Chairman Mao's Great Leap Forward.

Look for many more such dog whistles throughout the campaign season to send the ultra-right into a frenzy. Tea Party butthurt is the centerpiece of Obama's re-election strategy.

Both sides are bad, but one side is worse. I really wouldn't vote for Obama if there were a progressive candidate, but there isn't and Obama has delivered on some of his promises. I have yet to hear anything but rustling noises of mitten's empty suit.
 
2012-05-10 12:02:24 PM  
As Obama and his friends undoubtedly know...

Doubtful, but the folks at Christian Concepts Daily certainly seem to be familiar with that for some reason.

There are so many ways one could run with this. Pick one and make a funny:

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: King Something: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: WTF Indeed: the forced drinking of margaritas by college students.

Which makes you wonder: what would be in a drink called a Karl Marx?

/Red Bull & something, I would think.
//Probably served in a shared glass.

One 24oz can of Red Bull
One 1L bottle of Smirnoff 100 Proof
Some fruit punch or cherry juice to give the concoction a red appearance and a (more) pleasant flavor

And a container big enough for the whole thing (it'll be over a half-gallon)

/if Smirnoff isn't your bag, baby, then substitute with the 100-proof vodka of your choice

Yeah, but Marx was German, lived in England, and worked for Americans. Marx never thought the Russians were ready for Communism as their industrial sector wasn't fully developed and they were still primarily an agricultural society. He was expecting Communism to develop in the UK, USA, or the Western Industrialized nations (although that term is anachronistic)

TL:DR -- vodka's not an appropriate choice of liquor here.


Be that as it may, is there a German, English (not British!) or American liquor that goes with Red Bull as good as or better than vodka? And can such liquor be easily dyed red with the addition of red-colored fruit juice?

May 5th = Karl Marx =Tammy Wynette = Stand By Your Man = COMMUNIST GAY MARRIAGE

Of course...it's all so obvious now.

I'm tempted to see how Gin would work with that recipe.

Um hello, this was also FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! So he's obviously courting the basement dweller vote here.
 
2012-05-10 12:41:43 PM  
You know on Feb 10th 2007 Obama put announced his candidacy for 2008 election which is also the same day back in 1861 that Jefferson Davis found out he was selected to be President of the Confederate States of America. So not only is Obama a commie, he's a separatist.

Cinco De Marxo?

That makes no sense at all.

Ah, mystery solved. TY KingPsyz, good work.

Given some of the names Lucas comes up with for his characters, Emperor FartBongo is plausible.

Just thinking out loud...

Nov elections... 5 Nov?
5 May... approx 180 days out.
Seems like a logical re election campaign kickoff point but what do I know...

Worse than that, it's also Søren Kierkegaard's birthday which means Obama's a farking existentialist!

I'll concede that point, but vodka seems like the lazy way out for that drink. We can do better.

I'm assuming just as well as you'd expect it to turn out.

Why is Christian Concepts Daily releasing this article today? What is the significance of May 10th? Well, for one, today is the anniversary of the day serial killer and rapist John Wayne Gacy was executed. Could there be some kind of connection between Christian Concepts Daily and serial killers and rapists?

Or maybe there's a connection to the Iranian earthquake that happened in 1997... Or the Nazi book burning in 1933? Who knows what these people might be connected to!!1! Look at all this stuff that happened on May 10th...

/You can find interesting things that happened on pretty much any date...
