I can't read through 586 comments right now, but I am concerned that there are probably ethics regulations that would prevent him from being able to accept the car. If this proves incorrect, I am totally down for 5 bux.
 
2012-10-12 02:34:18 PM

theflatline: 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.

...omg. I was not sold on this idea, but if you can get Burt to deliver the TransAm to Biden....wow. That might just be enough to get my money.
 
2012-10-12 02:34:27 PM

Bleyo: Maybe Colbert's SuperPAC could answer some of the legal/donation questions. They've been quiet for a while now.


Maybe they have some bucks they'd like to add to the pot. Who wants to compose the funding letter?

abhorrent1: While I find this kind of amusing, You people suck balls.
The rescue I work with has a Indiegogo campaing set up for a puppy that really needs help. And you'd rather give your money to buy this tool a car rather than help someone that really needs it. This dog will bring more joy in it's short life then this douche-nozzel could ever dream of. You're all a bunch of farking farks.


Sounds fair, until you recall that ultimately: "All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD."

But you did remind me that I'm overdue to donate to the local animal shelter, so I hope you find solace in that.

So you let everyone know about this fund, right? Everyone here has seen it and dismissed it of hand, right?

Maybe if you weren't such an ass about it more people would contribute.

/Throw's a $5 towards it anyways.

SDRR: Coolfusis: Two more notes: whoever is doing this needs to get ahold of the secret service and let them inspect the car/whatever they have to do BEFORE they actually drive it up to DC. The secret service does not understand humor.

Also: next project would be getting Obama an equally suitable car and letting them race.

A drag race? Roundy Round? Road course?


Do you even need to ask? Dirt road by a cornfield at night.

mcwehrle: sethen320: Or you could all chip in your money to help someone who needs it.

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.

Shoo. Git. Go outside and play.

Or at least read the goddam thread you moron.

Just go.


No. I like the idea where you go f*ck yourself better.
 
2012-10-12 02:36:16 PM
I'm sorry, but you're trying to raise money to buy a car for a guy who gets paid $230,700/year, plus free health care and retirement benefits, and who has little to no actual responsibility for his job? Have you Farkers gone full blown retarded? Sounds like the money would be better spent getting all of you Joe Biden blow up dolls so you can make your fantasy of sucking his dick one step closer to reality.

Walt_Jizzney: RichieLaw: Walt_Jizzney: 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?

Ok - the WaPo delivers:

Link (Pops)

Added. Please check for continuity.

What's the correct link now? There's too many posts in this thread lol

I took care of that 1 free month of TotalFark.

Oh, and Sethen320, just because some TotalFarkette sends you a BIE doesn't mean she hasn't got a mighty penis. And she knows how to work it.


Thank you. And thanks for the advice. Ill take it to heart.

Honestly, why are you donating money to a dog when there are people half way around the world starving to death. Or Syrian children watching their parents blown up right before a sniper shoots them in the head.
And you'd rather give your money to help this mutt rather than help someone that really needs it. These people will contribute more to society in their potentially longer lives than this mutt could ever dream of. You're a farking fark.
 
2012-10-12 02:38:24 PM

GT_bike: Sure it was a funny article, funny to joke about doing it... but actually doing it would be the quintessential example of what is wrong with far too many people in this country.


If spending $5 or $10 on something a bit silly (but that will ultimately benefit a charity) is a serious problem for you, you need to get off Fark immediately and start making something of your life. Maybe get a job or collect empty cans for recycling or something.
 
2012-10-12 02:38:25 PM

Cyclometh: PallMall: subby, you're an absolute moron.

/that is all.

I gotta be honest- the awesomeness of the idea is only going to be made better by the awesomeness of pissing off so many right-wing trolls here on Fark.

Your tears are delicious, PallMall.


I think proctologists should sponsor us for TotalFark membership because of all the new business they'll be getting from this thread.

I double fail, but yeah, looks good. To be extra succinct (unlike me) you may want to try linking straight to the Yahoo Video...

NobleHam: Nezorf: Why couldn't we donate the proceeds to the campaign?

Not objecting but wondering why the charities picked.

That would make it a partisan thing. It's meant to be a salute to awesomeness and hilarity.


Ahh understood.

Walt_Jizzney: Just for everyone else in this thread:

Biden is aware of Onion Spoof - thinks it's highlarious and actually owns a '67 Corvette:

Link to Video Interview (Pops)


Should we try to find him a convertable?

Car and driver interview Oct 2011
C/D: Sadly, we must ask about the Onion story. While shirtless, have you ever washed a 1981 Pontiac Trans Am in your driveway?

JB: [Laughing] You think I'd drive a Trans Am? I have been in my bathing suit in my driveway and not only washed my Goodwood-green 1967 Corvette but also simonized it. At least the Onion should have had me washing a Trans Am convertible. I love convertibles.

Anyone passed this onto the Onion yet?

You're welcome. Just click on the little TotalFark in the blue ribbon at the top of the page. Enjoy.

I guess I need to emphasize that if you're going to purchase a motor vehicle with the hopes of auctioning it off for an amount greater than it's worth.. you have to shoot high.

Don't buy a cheap-ass TransAm, buy the full on deal. The most you can possibly afford with the donated funds.

At the end of the day, whatever collector scoops it to buy it will at least want something decent. Not a broken down Camaro with a Firebird sticker on the hood.
 
2012-10-12 02:39:49 PM

Hack Patooey: Cyclometh: My wife just pointed out that it's quite possible the White House has people who read Fark. I wonder if Joe has heard about this already? :D

Once Richie has the page up and working, I'll see about sending the info to the WH somehow. There are various links and all on the whitehouse.gov site, one of them's gotta work!


I used their 'contact us' area to point them to the indiegogo site, and explain the humor/desire behind it.

Tweeted the link to Kevin Smith's twitter account. Maybe he'll pass it along to his fans
 
2012-10-12 02:39:55 PM
I think the site, (both sites) could use some better links to the charities.

While we're spamming the hell out of all the other sites for support, playing that bit up some more cannot hurt us.

I'm tempted to buy abhorrent TF just so because it would be even more irritating to have been given $5 for TF but not for that puppy.

/Yeah - I'm a terrible person.
 
2012-10-12 02:41:12 PM
After the debate...

Liberals: That's not the REAL Romney!

Conservatives: That's absolutely the REAL Biden.

So go ahead, reward a first class jerk who impressed only the far left base and alienated everyone else a prize for making you feel better.

Nice to see the Fark Butthurt and 'I'm 20-something I Know EVERYTHING' brigades can team up to shiat on something funny together. I think the whining from the asspained and the hipster social-consciousness crowds working in tandem is the most non-partisan cross the aisle thing I've seen in years. It's adorable.
 
2012-10-12 02:42:20 PM

Of all the worthwhile charitable things to do with money...this is the most asinine of them all. Congrats Farkers, now I know why you spend $5 on a subscription to a bulletin board.
 
2012-10-12 02:42:40 PM
I just contacted a buddy out in Cali who knows a few important people, and he is going to check to see if he has a way to communicate the Idea to Burt Reynolds people about Burt getting involved.
