Internet Meme Rogers: The One True TheDavid:

For fark's sake, just shut up already. Goddamn.


You wanna see my Jerry Lewis impression?

The One True TheDavid: Nobodyn0se: 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.

Donating well over $1,500 to The Wounded Warriors, Doctors Without Borders, etc. is "stupid and useless"?

Can I quote you on that?

I was talking about buying Biden a Trans Am. Which is what the thread was set up for. Or is that too subtle for you?

As to collecting for "The Wounded Warriors, Doctors Without Borders, etc.," that's a very good idea. It's too bad it took y'all Farkers a thread proposing buying a Trans Am for Biden to make it happen.

Like I said, y'all could just add TheDavid's New Teeth to the charity list. Unfortunately it's not tax-deductible (yet), but then true charity does not necessarily equal a tax deduction.

How's this: on my Fark profile I'll link to a blog with photos of what generous Farkers' donations have enabled me to accomplish.

And I'll heartily and sincerely thank you individually, in public or in private, by name and/or username, as you specify.

What Would Biden Do?


Loosely translated: "Charity is good, BUT WHAT ABOUT MEEEE????!!?!?!?"

Taking that attitude on charity and donating to charities is sick. Troll or not: People who take that stance should be ashamed of themselves. Either donate or don't.

FinFangFark: 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?


+1 and the toy Trans Am has to be part of the deal.

The yahoo story has 410 comments and the majority are just beautiful. Amazing the amount of people calling lefties stupid and obviously didn't read the article or links provided.

Just plain Awesome!

It's picked up a bit, but dying off again.

This needs a serious shot in the arm.

Someone contact Romney's people and tell them it would be the greatest Internet Troll Effort EVER if he donated. Make sure the caveat is, that given his platform, the money he donates will be split between the Doctors Without Borders and the Wounded Warrior Project charities.

Greatest Troll EVAR!!
 
2012-10-12 04:43:45 PM  

HST's Dead Carcass: Ricardo Klement: The best thing in the world Romney can do is to donate $10,000 to this. He would totally steal this.

Seriously, that would be legendary!! Talk about dividing by zero. Peoples head would implode, not asplode. And that $10,000 would get more news coverage than the millions he's spent in advertising.

The only problem is it won't happen because of at least 1 charity involved: GLAAD. He couldn't risk his money going to that charity given his platform and religion.

But, totally one up every single person in America ever for Trolling.

Mr. Romney, we won't send your $10,000 to GLAAD if you donate it, we promise!


We sure wouldn't. Nope. Not at all.

/Would totally do this.
 
2012-10-12 04:43:57 PM  
donated.
 
2012-10-12 04:44:03 PM  
At first I was like, "Seriously? I appreciate watching Biden melting Ryan's face off in the debate, but damn. Dude can afford his own car."

Then I was like, "Oh, they're gonna try to get him to wash it shirtless, then auction it for charity."

... yeah, I'm down with this. When the paycheck hits the bank I'll chip in ten. I want THOROUGH followup documentation!

That looks pretty spot on. If we could get it for 11, add a grand for shipping and another grand for gold snowflake rims (necessity), we could wrap this thing up over the weekend.

No way. Seriously?

That's not THE Kim Kardashian, merely a fan. However, it will sure to be re-tweeted by other KK fans, and so on...

I notice that both Katy Perry and Bieber fans on Twitter are picking up the story, too.

It's all good.

So, TMZ in 5...4...3...2...

Good lord. Next thing you know we'll have Wolf Blitzer scrolling through a hologram of this Fark thread.

That would be magical


Wolf should translate the acronyms. Ready to see him say BIE

This may be the dumbest thing on Fark, ever. This used to be a really cool site, now it is nothing but Reddit Lite...nothing but homogenous groupthink, with barely a flicker of individual creativity anymore. It is sad, really.

I see your point, but, wouldn't it be glorious if somehow Romney actually did get involved? It would seriously be one of the greatest trolls ever, you know it would.

The problem, in terms of reaching out to the media, is that it's a Friday afternoon. We may just have to rely on social media until Monday morning.

In the meantime, we should contact the heck out of places like HuffPo, TMZ, Gawker, Wonkette, TPM, etc.

Don't even need a grand for the gold snowflakes.

Problem is that it's at or near the end of the workday for half the country right now. Donations will taper a bit for the same reason Fark activity tend to take a dive this time every day.

I think it's got legs though. It will bounce back as the media gets in on it.

Haven't read the thread but I'm assuming that leftover proceeds from the initial fundraising will also go to these charities??

I will bet you $1000.00 that he would give it to charity - e.g. wounded warriors - so that would be cool.
