Sounds excellent. Good work.

Got to hand this one to Obama. He's finally made it "cool" to buy a car for an old rich white guy.
 
2012-10-12 02:58:52 PM  
I'm pretty sure Biden will get a kick out of this when he hears about it. He'll most likely graciously ask the money be sent directly to the Charities instead of buying a car to give him, the auction off, but in the end, no matter what, it's going for a good cause. You have my $5... and my axe... and my bow...

Biden wants a convertible trans am

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.

Don't get carried away with the concept and spam the universe if the product isn't ready for primetime. The charities should be highlighted to maximize interest (for those who aren't soley about the lulz).

VoodooTaco: extroverted_suicide: 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.

Appreciated, but please recall that it's ultimately for charity. Lulz are a freebie.


Well, I still didn't have time to read it all, but I did make a few moments to skim and did catch the decision that either the car or the money will ultimately go to charity. So now I am definitely in.

While he can't accept it, I think he would reach legendary status and nab a lot of votes if he showed up, spent a few minutes hand washing it, in jorts of course, laughed it off and agreed that it should be auctioned off as the site suggests.

You asshole. I have a campaign to help starving children, and you would rather help a freaking animal who should just be put down? Have you no compassion? These kids could perhaps become adults who might sow peace and stability, or find a cure for puppy cancer, something your mutt would never be able to accomplish.

You're just a farking fark.

You vaghole. I have a campaign to help starving vets, and you would rather help a freaking kid who should just be put down? Have you no compassion?

Yea, well I have a fund to help me buy copious amounts of blow and rent a 1/2 dozen hookers this weekend. Without my blow purchase some drug dealer won't be able to buy a new gun and some poor hookers will be short a sale. Why do you hate America?

You're just a farking fark.


You fetid cockpotato. I have a campaign to help me buy a starving child and 1/2 dozen Joe Paterno figurines. Without my purchase some overweight housewife who smells of sour milk and desperation won't be able to buy that log of Velveeta to overfeed her six children. Why do you hate fat women?

If it generates press and noise, and he actually washes the sumb*tch on the whitehouse lawn, I guarantee somebody will buy it for a lot more than 25K.
