How about donating that money to women's shelters? You know, to help them against the War on Women (TM) that Repubs are waging. *Looks at donation page* Nevermind. Keep the change.

VoodooTaco: Being the beaurocratic desk jockey that I am, should we reorganize a few threads for comms?

Proposals:


Website and AV development & management
Charity handlers
Media Promotion (reddit/colbert/wh/huffpo etc etc)
Trans An procurement squad (including titles/taxes etc)
Legal Team

Debbie Downers & Trolls (in their own thread)

Thoughts? Or are there some super-secret TF type threads looming behind the curtain that would be better?


Forgot and added it in above -

Website and AV development & management.

vernonFL: This idea is taking off a LOT faster than my "Buy Dick Cheney a heart" campaign of 2007 : (


Well, you have to be alive for a heart to work. A zombie like Cheney would have gobbled that heart like antipasto.

I guess I'm getting too old for this level of nonsense. I read the Onion article, and snickered a little bit, but I wouldn't call it movement inspiring. I suppose next we'll start a fund to actually outlaw pancakes.

Maybe we should donate the money to a literacy campaign instead...

maybe if everyone got all giddy and stupid about Big Bird too you all could donate to your local PBS station to save Sesame Street...instead of buying a Trans AM for a millionaire.


I'm already a monthly donor to my local PBS station. That doesn't mean that I can't skip lunch today and instead donate $5 to something for the lulz...
 
2012-10-12 03:13:15 PM  
Any chance we can cap it off at 1K and buy him a trans-am that's as shiatty as Biden is?

There's no need to get him one that very nice, folks.

uber humper: Magnanimous_J: Iceman_Cometh: The Trans Am better be a complete POS since the VP, as a Gov't employee, cannot legally accept a gift valued over $20.

Maybe we can get around it because the contributors are not part of any coherent group, so really, the gift is just many thousands of gifts of $5 a piece. Or we can just tow it to the White House and leave it there.

Wait, that's a horrible idea.

Easy, give it to him 90 days.

gunther_bumpass: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: Why all the anger? It's a fun idea. If you like Joe, there's no reason not to have some fun. If it bothers you so much, start your own donation page to buy Romney a f*cking personality or something.

How about a box of dildos?


If he wins the election they can be his cabinet.

Did you read it?

"Now, if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome and cannot be given to Vice President Biden, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off.
All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.
Regardless if it is to Joe Biden or to charity, maybe Joe Biden will wash it on the White House lawn"


no I posted in a vacuum as usual...what were we talking about again? Oh yeah trying to make a meme reality then deciding it needed to go viral and legitimacy by linking it to some charities...whatever it's fine it just made me cry a little for humanity not for the desire to help but that it took a meme to get people to wipe the cheetos off their fingers before they did anything for someone else.

Also Joe Biden is another typical politician who rarely makes any significant charitable contributions of his own accord and with his own money.
