Did they check *ALL* the records? Sometimes they can get stuck between those double albums. I don't know how many times I've found stuff in the fold of "Endless Summer" by the Beach Boys or "Kiss Alive!".

How can you even joke about that?

I don't get it... Who is Quinn?


An Eskimo.

No one can afford a replacement piano in this economy!

And for those who REALLY don't get the reference, and can't be arsed to look through 1000+ posts in the other thread:

Thread was getting into a lively discussion on the Duggars and whether it really was a Wise Idea for the Duggar family to continue dropping God Warriors at the risk of Mrs. Duggar's future health and reproductive potential (some discussing this reasonably, some in decidedly snarkier terms), when the Owner Of The BabyquariumTM pretty much blatantly and explicitly started using his wife's miscarriage in an attempt at earning brownie points by full-out Operation Rescue-style attention-whoring (which included posting pics of said BabyquariumTM).

Fark being Fark, this went about as well as expected, and at least some folks attempted to explain (some gently, some...not so much) that perhaps it was a Really Bad Idea to have attempted to drive a point home by attention-whoring like this, and that it would be a bad idea ANYWHERE but especially on Fark (there are only three places I can think of on the Internet that would have been less appropriate, those being called 4chan, Something Awful, and Ogrish respectively; I also expect Reddit would have taken the stunt about as well as Fark would have, only with more volume).

Owner Of The BabyquariumTM, alas, did NOT take the gentle and not-so-gentle hints and proceeded to actually double down on this--not just in the thread mentioned, but in a subsequent thread (which ended up being nuked by the Fark mods, the first time I've EVER seen that in about twelve years of lurking on Fark).

This, in turn, went about as well as you can expect it would on Fark, which is to say that the Owner Of The BabyquariumTM became the Virtual Honk Bag for a good portion of the membership.

(The really sad thing on all this? Owner Of The BabyquariumTM would have actually made his point better without the attention whoring, and if he'd gotten the hint when people tried to explain this to him (including at least one person who'd HAD a miscarriage)...well, things MIGHT have gone marginally better. Unfortunately, the Owner Of The BabyquariumTM also had a history PRIOR to the Babyquarium Incident, including one where he outright called a fellow Farker a "murderer" for having to make a heartbreaking choice to have an abortion in full-out Operation Rescue slut-shaming style, so I'm not sure that a clue delivered by A-10 Warthog and/or MOAB would have gotten through his skull.)

I've just realized something.

We're all going to hell. All of us in this thread.

It's from a tombstone.

Yep or a mistake.


I'll put mistake over sample. You don't advertise anything with a dead baby, even dead baby accessories.

I bet the parents were English majors and couldn't stand ending the epitaph with a preposition. And since they are English majors, it took this long to save enough money to replace it.
