Man On Pink Corner: 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.


Maybe this'll change his mind some.

FinFangFark: If you need some media pointers (yeah, I was a media hack for a long time), let me know, and we can craft a pretty little ball of words that the press can feast on.


Just come up with something and post it in thread. RichieLaw or Hack Patooey will see it.

Yeah, like breast cancer, gay rights, veterans and health care?

Remember to blame the media if you get in a tight spot with questioning.

I also know a couple of folks who might be able to flack.

The One True TheDavid: I could use some donations too: I'm missing three teeth, including a couple front teeth, and could really use a bridge or maybe (preferrably) implants.

It's true that I'm not a (rich) celebrity or a (salaried) politician, but then again this dental work is a lot less expensive than a Trans Am. For that matter if you gave me any car I'd want to sell it and use the money for dental restoration.

My email address is in my profile.

TIA! 

P.S. Can't the VP afford to buy his own damn car? Maybe if y'all would rather help a well-to-do politician than an impoverished lone nut, perhaps you can at least make the donation of a Trans Am contingent on Biden paying for my dental work.


P.S.S.

"if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome and cannot be given to Vice President Biden."
In that case, the campaign curators will auction the Trans AM and donate the sales to several charitable organizations, including the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.

Are you implying that conservatives don't see charity as an "important issue"?

Cyclometh: stirfrybry: Good to see liberals focusing on important issues

Yeah, we're raising 25 thousand dollars plus for charity on a whim started less than four hours ago. If you can do better, man up and get on it, nancy.


Seriously, this. All started by a bunch of random farkers.

Speaking of.... why is givejoethebird.com not forwarding yet?

As a side note, I think you should update the donate page to reflect the fact that the Trans Am won't be given to Joe. That was the initial idea, but I think it's pretty much unanimous now that it will be auctioned and given to charity regardless of the law. Ideally, Joe will pose with the Trans Am before it's auctioned though.

IF that's what you want to do. I'll get a month of entertainment. You'll get well....something I guess. And you don't even get to drive the car or be anywhere near it. I get repeating entertainment from watching you tools put up $ for it.

If you think Biden is an a-hole, your friends must be limited to house pets and/or plants.


he thinks Biden was too mean to his VP candidate, so now Biden is an asshole.

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.


Well, you guilted me into it. But I still like this one. Yeah, read the thread too, it's all charity-y.

Uncle Joe's passion for his craft as dissolved party lines on Fark. And as a token of appreciate, we have banded together to get Joe what he deserves, that one shining piece of pure Americana. We all want to see the shine in Uncle Joe's face as that white Trans Am pulls up to the White House, Whitesnake blaring ifrom out of the open t-tops.

You're just so butthurt. It's amazing. A bunch of liberals grabbed their bootstraps and in under four hours went from a random thread posted to over 1200 dollars raised for charity, and on the way to more than 20 times that amount.

In those four hours all you've done is snivel.
 
2012-10-12 03:49:39 PM  
Ok, this is now spreading like wildfire on Twitter. Tweets are coming in every few seconds. Incredible. In fact, "Biden" is now a trending topic - and I think that it may have as much to do with this campaign as with last night's debate.

I agree. The value of the car goes through the roof (to the right sick sons of b*tches) if Biden actually washes it on the white house lawn. Turn around and re-auction it and it does some real good.

Right now, David Axelrod is down on his knees thanking Jebus and the Baby Moses in a Basket for the amazing gift that is the Internet.

They get Biden to pose with the car, talk about the charities the money will support, and segue to campaign talking points on the middle class.

PRICELESS.
