Nezorf: GT_bike: 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.

if ever there were a time for the double facepalm this would be it, instead

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.

This is so insanely silly. I love it.

Have any Debbie Downers mentioned that Joe Biden can probably afford to buy his own classic Trans Am?

Senator Biden, now Vice President Biden, has always been known for his fiery and passionate speech and mannerisms.

I thought everyone knew him best for his impeccable impersonations of Kayne West and The Joker.

In for $0 dollars and he can buy me a Trans Am, at least I've actually driven one regularly.

GT_bike: 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.


Biden is well-known as one of the poorest members of Congress:

What disturbs Garrett is how much debt the Bidens have, given their income and age. The vice-president is 69; his wife is 61. Because of their numerous loans, the couple have just $215,000 in net worth (their assets minus their debts).

I'm in for ten bucks.

The thing is, Joe, you gotta come pick me up at my house. And you gotta have Van Halen blasting on the tape deck. And when we drive past the drug store, it's gotta be just fast enough so it's not obvious you're checking them out, and just slow enough that you can yell "His name is TOWATCHOVERMEEEEE" as Eddie kicks into the solo on "Panama," Joe.

Afterwards, we'll go bowling. Ten pin, Joe, not this wussy five-pin stuff. And we can sit back and laugh about how Paul Ryan looks like Screech from Saved by the Bell ... and wonder if, when he's kicking himself for joining the ticket, he's wearing the same shoes he ran that sub-three hour marathon in.

Gonna be good times, Joe. Bring beer.

RichieLaw: Bank info is now set up. Hopefully that will allow cards from other places....


Even if this doesn't ultimately fly, I suspect that you've earned highlighted text blocks on many a Farker's account today.

You still can! Tweet it. Keep the Reddit thread alive. Share the Facebook page.
 
2012-10-12 03:23:42 PM
So the drive is at 4%. Now is that a real 4%? Or is that a Democrat 4% (16.87%) or a Republican 4% (0.2%)?

I can't keep the different scaling factors straight.
 
2012-10-12 03:23:51 PM
Fark Joe Biden. If he wants a Trans Am, he can just order an illegal raid on somebody who has one, or ask his buddy Chris Dodd to donate one to his campaign.
 
2012-10-12 03:24:11 PM

Critch: What the hell? The guy makes 250,000 a year. He can buy his OWN damn Trans Am.


You're tardy. Where's your note?

I'll ask the wife if I can contribute later. I've spent a lot of money this week.

I started a new color for people today. I call it, Hater Yellow. There are a lot of people in Hater Yellow now. Because some of you motherf*ckers are serious haters. Now everybody stop having fun.

Even if it doesn't result in a Trans Am or Biden all the cash will go to charity

"Flexible Funding campaign
This campaign will receive all of the funds contributed by Wed Nov 28 at 11:59PM PT."

The only thing that we can run into is if RichieLaw runs off with the $$ or indegogo shuts it down.

True. It only makes you the 1.5%.

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?


I would chip in for that.

I'm willing to risk ten bucks on a venture like this. Hell, I've already gotten more than my money's worth just in laughter.

Listen Debbie. I'm pretty certain you have no psychic powers, and have no clue how many hours a year I volunteer, how much of MY money I donate, or to which charities that goes. And I'm also pretty damn sure you don't know that about any of the other farkers here. So STFU and GTFO if all you're going to do is whine. Go "cry for humanity" in your own corner. And maybe throw 'em a few bucks while you're at it.

Welcome to plonk.

2012-10-12 03:29:09 PM
For those that are truly dead inside:

IF WE ARE UNABLE TO MAKE THE ACTUAL TRANS AM HAPPEN, THE MONEY WILL GO TO CHARITY,

and we'll buy and ship Uncle Joe a toy Trans Am, will that satisfy the "Under $20" policy?
 
2012-10-12 03:29:18 PM
He can afford one himself. How about hitting me up with a TF? I'd only use it for the forces of good.

Everyone should give to charity, they just shouldn't do it to make The Joker look plausibly human. Though come to think of it, drunk and disorderly would explain why he tried to treat Ryan like Taylor Swift.

sex0r: Yes, let's contribute to buy a hack, millionaire politician, who gives less to charity than I do and who hasn't done an honest days work since he's been in any type of elected office, a TransAm.

Are you people farking retarded?
