Not a bad headline.

Looks like the Guinness Book of World Records has a new champion in "Emptiest Gesture"

Good headline, pointless gesture, so I guess perfect for FARK
 
2012-09-10 04:59:26 PM
I guffawed at this headline.

Wow--I love the USA!

Not nearly as silly a gesture as I thought it would be.

Take it away, dude.

This released the headline from its redlight.

Is there a stream? I'm a huge Kate Smith fan.

Wasn't this a Metalocalypse episode?

Overlayed jingoistic song is overplayed and jingoistic.

TommyymmoT: God Bless America is one of my favorite movies.


That movie was offensive on many levels.
Funny as hell.

He made it.

Foote sang for a 48-hour stretch, with breaks each hour to rest his voice. His wife, Sandi, said he got three hours of sleep this morning after getting far enough ahead of a well-planned schedule that he could take a longer break.

"It will be with an international flavor ... because patriotism doesn't just belong to the United States," he said. "Next year people will be able to come and plant flags from other countries."

because nothing says "international inclusion" like repeatedly singing a song that implies that the united states has a monopoly on freedom.

One of my favorite recent movie scenes is the Alice Cooper/Diablo Cody rant from that movie.

And it still won't be half as shameless as that farking song by Alan Jackson.
 
2012-09-11 02:11:55 PM
Lets assume the song is 3 minutes long.... he'll be singing for almost 48 hours straight.

What's with all these 9/11 stories? Did something happen?

Oh dear god.....the Elder Gods are going to be roused from their eternal slumbers today, arent' they?

About 500 flags will surround the tent where he will sing, and columns of 3,497 solar lights will replicate the Twin Towers at night. The latter figure represents the number of people killed in the terrorist attacks.
The event also will feature an American Indian flutist and actors who play former presidents, Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross. Free apple pie donated by local stores also will be available to the public Monday while supplies last.


Thi...this isn't a joke?

2012-09-11 02:15:01 PM
Will he be wearing a US flag shirt and bandana while singing it?

Foote said the event will serve as a trial run for a follow-up event next year.

"It will be with an international flavor ... because patriotism doesn't just belong to the United States," he said. "Next year people will be able to come and plant flags from other countries."


I wonder if he'll use the same song.
 
2012-09-11 02:15:57 PM
So he doesn't mean it the rest of the year?
 
2012-09-11 02:16:47 PM
"I would love for the community to stop whatever they're doing at 6:40 a.m. on Tuesday and sing with me that 911th time," Foote said, adding the event will be a low-key opportunity for people to reaffirm their patriotism.

Well, thank goodness he's keeping it "low key".

That song is good for one reason; hitting the can during the 7th inning and not having to wait in line.

It's been 11 farkING YEARS!! Can we start getting the hell over it and MOVING ON already? People weren't derping this hard about December 7 after WWII, were they?

THIS

Why do something that could actually benefit someone who needs help when you can call attention to yourself with an empty gesture?

We're like 20 years away from 9/11 being on the same level as Halloween or Easter. "OK kids, time to head out to the back-yard and beat up the Osama Pinata and get your Freedom M&M's!"

Problem is that we're still "at war" and killing the durkah durkah's thought to be responsible for the mishaps of 9/11. Once this is all over, everyone will forget all about it.
 
2012-09-11 02:21:57 PM
Funny how many people don't know what "jingoism" means.

You would have to have consumed 30,000 pints of beer to outlast this guy once you got to the can. Obviously, in Utah the terrorist are winning.

Doo-doo-do-DO-do-DOOT-doot-doot-doot!

(You are now all singing this in Nyan Cat's voice. Only 909 more verses to go!)

boozehat: Lets assume the song is 3 minutes long.... he'll be singing for almost 48 hours straight.


I did the same quick math... maybe he's going to sing it at 78 speed? Real fast, like Cartman blasting through "Come Sail Away"

Challenge accepted. I'll bring the grill.

If he's not already on them, he's gonna need some serious meds to deal with accompanying neurosis caused by having that song stuck in his head for the rest of his freakin' life!

As for the idea of switching to another song to cure that earworm, I ask, are there any that powerful?

Guliani Claus will come at night and leave Bernie Kerik action figures under the children's pillows, whilst whispering sweet 9/11's in to their ears.
