Negligible: abhorrent1: While I find this kind of amusing, You people suck balls.
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.

Honestly, why are you donating money to a dog when there are people half way around the world starving to death. Or Syrian children watching their parents blown up right before a sniper shoots them in the head.
And you'd rather give your money to help this mutt rather than help someone that really needs it. These people will contribute more to society in their potentially longer lives than this mutt could ever dream of. You're a farking fark.


Like Sarah Silverman said, if Africa was filled with adorable starving Labradoodles, the world would find a way to solve that in less than 24 hours. So.. African people, just try to be cuter.

/ just quoting here
// would rather feed a baby than a dog
/// although they are both really farking noisy and smelly

No, that's just what spawned the idea in the subby's mind. It quickly turned into a charity fund raiser for 4 organizations allowing people to have fun while doing it.

Seriously, if you people can't see that, your world must be very dark.

CptnSpldng: RichieLaw: Big snip.

I was going to bed. Then Mrs. Spldng requested an 11 o'clock chocolate run to the store. And I had to see what was happening. Thanks for the response Ritchie. One thing to consider is how to handle title and insurance on the vehicle prior to auctioning it off. If all it ever does is get trucked around on a flatbed, you may not have to insure it at all.

Just raising points so no one gets burned ~ not trying to cause trouble.


All good points. AsI said above I am an attorney. I'm not saying that because of hubris but because I I have a full understanding of the liabilities and exposure here. This is also why I put 25k as the goal point to ensure that we had enough too cover all expenses and exposures.

But yes, well aware. :) i definitely appreciate the concern!

Because people who are suddenly motivated to donate to charity because it's mildly amusing in a round about way are the people who get it? Yeah, great that you're finally doing something, but if it's because this amuses you, you're really the one missing the point.

Can we get the video linked on the campaign updates, RichieLaw?
 
2012-10-13 12:47:23 AM
I don't know if it's been mentioned, but I believe that the reaction from Biden on The Onion was from Car and Driver and he actually laughed at the question. I don't think he was offended by the joke or could spin away from it.

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.

We have a couple reddit threads going. Some of them have enough momentum to be seen by most users over the weekend.

Threads on the Indiegogo link: Link

Threads on the Yahoo News Article: Link

The threads in the smaller subreddits like r/nottheonion, r/offbeat, r/obama, r/politicalhumor, and others have enough momentum to be visible for the next few days. Any thread in a default sub like politics or funny needs a lot more momentum to keep it visible.

Developing this over the weekend with things like the video and other ideas, then pushing that out on Monday would be the best way to garner more attention.

I don't know about "getting it", but yes, this thread reminded me that I haven't donated to any charities in a while. And if I can donate money to what I think are good causes and have a big laugh with a bunch of other people at the same, it's win-win.

Haters can donate to mock Biden, and supporters can donate to show their appreciation of him. Everybody wins.

The only people who lose are the ones who get pissed off by this. And frankly, knowing my participation contributes to pissing them off is its own little reward too.

This is the perfect place to get rid of the $5+ left at the end of a disposable gift card that isn't good for much else. You also get to upload a photo of yourself when you donate for posterity, or make a donation in the name of your favorite butthurt Republican troll.

I would have just called you a threadshiater. He was at least creative about it.

People buy pink spatulas at Wal-Mart thinking it will save the ta-ta's. We just want to see the real Joe Biden scrub down a Trans Am in his Jorts and spread the donations among 4 groups. We must be terrible people.

Ok, freakout time. Nodded off in my computer chair. (Long work week) Had an odd dream. This thing finished. The car was bought, looked identical to the one in the onion article. Just before the car was delivered to Washington DC, it is discovered somehow that Biden himself made the largest donation. The car arrives. Biden follows true to form, and washes the car right there on the White House lawn. Sans shirt. Only he isn't flabby, and while not rocking a six-pack, does seem to be in reasonable shape. Biden's wife brushes hair in mirror and applies makeup. Auction goes. Biden stomps everyone and wins. And keeps the car at the White House while blasting loud ass 80s rock from it.

/freakin' me out, man!

By the way- I'm usually quite snarky and can be a real jerk here on Fark- that's not who I really am in real life but I come here because I can hang around with other snarky jerks. Today, we've done something very cool and you've broken through my snarky jerk facade to expose the snarky jerk underneath.

In all seriousness, you're all awesome- thanks for making this happen!
