Done! In for a fin!

I love this idea, as well as the butthurt it is somehow generating. I'm in!
 
2012-10-12 02:15:02 PM  

RichieLaw: I have the amount for $25k. Enough to purchase the car, pay applicable taxes and then transport it wherever it needs to go.

Also. Short description has been updated:

Help us raise $25 thousand dollars to buy Joe Biden a gift from the American people as awesome as he is... a vintage Pontiac Trans Am.

Now, if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome for pesky laws and other unknown political reasons and Uncle Joe has to remain Trans Am-less, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off.

All proceeds will go to benefit the Biden Breast Health Initiative.

Have someone from Night Ranger deliver it...
 
2012-10-12 02:15:12 PM  

Ricardo Klement: I kinda wished I had thought of this, although to be hones, I'm not sure this is the best use of $25k. If I were Biden, I would drive this one to a press conference and announce I'm auctioning it off for charity, and offer to first wash it in your driveway.

Of course, that would make him irretrievably popular with his base if he did it.


I submitted this for laughs, never even thinking it would get greened, let alone get legs. Jeebuz.

If the Onion gets wind, they'll want to help. No doubt.

I guess its more fun for some farkers to suck a politicians cock. He doesn't give a shiat about you (red or blue, doesn't matter). Don't buy him anything.

Yeah, I thought he already had one.

Late to the thread but I'm sure someone has pointed out Biden's voting record with respect to Internet issues. He can be expected to use his Trans Am to run the Internet into a ditch. He will then go through its pockets to look for loose change, before handing over its wallet to the MPAA and RIAA.
 
2012-10-12 02:16:57 PM  

Maybe they should reverse the ticket?

2012-10-12 02:17:06 PM  
For this to really work well the actual car that's delivered to the Vice President has to match the one from The Onion.

Now what would be really amazing if someone could track down the owner of the actual Trans Am used in The Onion article and see if he wants to sell. You never know.
 
2012-10-12 02:17:24 PM  
Shouldn't it be delivered with a giant Big Bird in the passenger seat?

Behold the power of internet memes. You've started something potentially magical.

I really, really hope this gets all the legs for charity.

I'll throw in my vote for "homey" (or even "homie") rather than "homer", if it's not too late.

There is only One American to drive that car into Washington, and there is a short time to do it.

And he is a Democrat.

The bandit needs one more ride.

There are much cooler things to do than this.

Awesome!
That should help.
 
2012-10-12 02:22:55 PM  

thrgd456: So, umm, hate to tell you, but conservatives saw it differently.

Biden came off as a wrinkled up blowhard with lots of contempt but no actual facts or results to back up his four years of doing nothing but posturing.


So Conservatives ignore reality when it conflicts with their beliefs and don't recognize an actual fact when it's presented to them. Got it.

RichieLaw: Walt_Jizzney: RichieLaw: urbangirl: un4gvn666: RichieLaw, 4th paragraph from the bottom has a couple of grammatical errors:

In order to let Vice President Biden know just how much we appreciate them him, while also making a very silly part of the internet come true (we are the internet after all); let's buy Uncle Joe a Trans Am like the one that is featured in the Onion article linked to above. It's hilarious, it's awesome and gosh darnit, it's something that we can talk about in addition to the cat pictures and rage comics.

Just doing my part. :)

Also, from opening sentence: $25 million dollars

Fixed!

Read my post above, Rich...it's important that we mention Joe's awareness of the spoof. It will also give context...

Do you have a link for that?


Crap - I need to find it...I thought I hear it in an NPR interview. In any case, iirc, he thought it was great.

No, what Biden really needs is a biatchin' Camero.

I could get my folks to drive it up here from the Baahamas.

Name the web site "Joe Biden Needs A Trans Am Awareness Campaign", make sure to put pink ribbons all over it, proceeds go to Drew to cover the beer tab for the next Fark hang out at his house.
