Bontesla: Bruxellensis: What do you thing the chances are of mention on Daily Show or Colbert?

Pretty good for Colbert and Maddow.
Probably petty good for Limbaugh (PLEASE?).

I also think we'll see a few new Fark accts.


If that happens, I see no reason that the goal can't be reached.

JusticeandIndependence: 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.



JusticeandIndependence: 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.


Good. But how is donating money to these worthy charitable organizations going to get me new front teeth?

If there was any charity out there that would pay for my dental work I wouldn't be panhandling on Fark.

Maybe somebody can show me how to set up my very own tax-deductible charity. Or maybe you can add Davy's New Teeth to the list of recipients.

All I want for Christmas is my new front teeth. (And one molar.)

NobleHam: Well, I think the dream end-goal is to "give" him the TransAm in a public photo-op, have him sign something and auction it off with the car for charity. The idea is to get Joe and the TransAm together, at least for a few minutes.


Bah! I want him to actually have it. People used to give gifts to officials all the time. I watched something where some guy would make a huge throne thing out of antlers and give one to each incoming president.

The charity thing is all good and great, and probably the way it will go, but I would rather actually give it to him as a gesture from us Internet-Americans.

RichieLaw: Sample edit:

Now, Uncle Joe won't be able to accept this gift. He has these pesky laws and regulations and political-y things to deal with. Take into consideration his epicly large personality and stunning chompers, he probably wouldn't be able to drive the Trans AM without causing a mass outpouring of Conservative Tears. That being said, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off for charity.

Absolutely. Think I should be more clear about that? I think it is kind of implicit....


It's up to you, this is sort of your thing. But if you give an interview to Yahoo (or anyone else as this thing grows), I'd make it clear then.

I can safely say Biden does not want a Trans Am, he does like the CTS-V and has a 1967 Corvette the Secret Service won't let him drive. At least he is a car guy.

That is what I was thinking as well. I'm sure he would donate it to charity in any event.

Well, I think gifts over a certain value given to government officials become property of the government, so it wouldn't really be giving it to him in that case anyway.

Is that the best you can do? Are you a farking moran?


[i865.photobucket.com image 250x250]


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.


[i865.photobucket.com image 264x34]


You misunderstand, moron, I think this is wonderful.

Retarded for saying wait 90 days? That's not retarded, that's how it should be handled. In just a little more than 90 days, there is a good change he will not be employed by the government. He can't receive the gift while employed by the government. If they are reelected, give it to charity.

Yeah, except that it is probably illegal to give him a car. I mean, would you like it if Exxon gave Paul Ryan a new treadmill (or whatever) for "being awesome"? Kind of a fine line between rewarding being awesome and bribery.
