tuxq: This whole thread is farking priceless. It speaks volumes in its imagery. The liberals are willing to waste money on a stupid cause, while the conservatives are going "wtf?"


And the liberals are the ones actually getting shiat done instead of standing around oozing butthurt.

There is an unnecessary comma in the first paragraph in between his and Bird:

how sweet his,"Bird" was,

And an unnecessary apostrophe here, should just be memes:

one of the internet's favorite political meme's

Also, this semi-colon could probably be a comma instead:

Leeds: dameron: Leeds: We've found the perfect car for this a-hole:

If he's such a joke and such a jerk and clearly lost the debate last night then why are you and a dozen other motards in this thread so angry?

Who's angry? I'm just trying to steer this into buying a junker because, as you may have noticed, that would be a way better gag than buying him a nice one. Surely you can see some humor in the premise, yes?


The premise of denying thousands of dollars to worthy charities?

HILARIOUS!

machoprogrammer: 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.


Yeah, those two things are TOTALLY the same. We were all wrong and now agree with you. You can now leave with the knowledge that your arguments are in no way looked upon with stifled laughter.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: kimwim: The One True TheDavid: Kim, it would have never occurred to me to take up a collection for dental work on Fark if this really stupid and useless thread weren't already here.


This isn't a personal charity case. Someone gave you a link. I suggest you thank them, and use it.

Dude's just here to hate. I doubt he has any teeth at all to worry about. Hate is caustic.


I try hard not to put people on ignore, but sometimes it has to be done.
and shouldn't a mod handle this?

That's because when they realize they're trying to shiat all over a genuine push for charity, most have the mental capacity to stop posting. At least those who don't feel the need to try to justify their douchebaggery stop.

Awesome.

Yes, this has really made my day. It's not about party affiliation and sticking it to the other, just good old fashion fun. And at the end of it, it will go to a good cause.

YES, there are other causes that everyone feel are more worthy of money. But every cause needs a champion, right? Well Fark has decided to champion getting Uncle Joe his naked chick mud flaps!

I'm Republican and I think this is a hilarious idea. I don't understand why others find this so distasteful. Probably because it's a form of congratulations for Biden.

HST's Dead Carcass: I'm pretty sure Biden will get a kick out of this when he hears about it. He'll most likely graciously ask the money be sent directly to the Charities instead of buying a car to give him, the auction off, but in the end, no matter what, it's going for a good cause. You have my $5... and my axe... and my bow...


Meanwhile some poor schmoe trying to sell his Trans Am has to go hungry or miss his rent payment? Let's spread it all around. In the karmic sense of things, the greatest good we do today could be paying someone for a used car. Who knows?

Here ya go. Go find one that'll help you, instead of crying on fark about it. They can't help you if they don't know you exist.

The useful options in that Google link you posted point to charities for children in Wisconsin. Even adding "Kentucky" to the search doesn't help much: besides "for children" there's a link to a group providing dental care for survivors of domestic abuse, another category I don't fall in.

Like I said, if there was a charity out there that would help ME with MY dental problems I wouldn't be bothering with this. There probably is a solution I don't know about, but you haven't found it for me. Sorry.

In another thread I demonstared my ability to Google up something a kid in Bumfark, North Dakota can do instead of shooting himself in class; you might as well assume I could find help for myself if it were so easily done on the Intert00bs.

Maybe y'all should ask Biden what he thinks. You know, something like "Should we buy you a Trans Am or get this guy some (much cheaper) dental work?"

And there's no need for an either/or, really: y'all can buy him a Trans Am AND get me some teeth.

I'd only need about $2000. And I'm okay with taking the bus for the rest of my life.
