Cyclometh: Twitter's taken off again too, not sure why. Someone with a lot of followers must have retweeted.

Someone on Twitter just tweeted the story to GLAAD, which makes me wonder: do the other charities know what's going on with this fundraiser?

browntimmy: assjuice: Does every stupid meme have to become a real-life thing? If you think this is epic or random or whatever then go back to reddit and stay there.

You know what's funny, this isn't the first time I read a comment and thought, "Man, who's this angry pompous guy with no sense of humor?" and saw that the name was assjuice.


Bwaa Haa Ha Ha!

You can see why the conservatives on this page are so bent out of shape about this idea though: if this current administration is comes to be viewed as a pasty white shirtless guy washing a Trans-Am on his lawn, Obama might steal away some of their base.

I tagged gladd, doctors with borders, and wounder warriors on one of my tweets. No twitter information for bbhi that I could find.

It's nice that this is going to charity in Joe Bidens name. Lord knows, he could use the help.

You sound very bitter and not very bright.

Like I said, if there already was a charity set up to provide tooth replacements for lone nuts in Lexington, KY I wouldn't bother with this.


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

Like I said, if there already was a charity set up to provide tooth replacements for lone nuts in Lexington, KY I wouldn't bother with this.

Why do you have such a problem with it?


Either donate or don't.

Would you support my right to do this if I donated $5 to some already-existing charity? Would you rather I donate to the Trans Am For Biden Fund or to a specific charity of your choice?

I donate to charities myself: just recently I donated $5 to the Wikimedia Foundation, and I can prove it.

And whenever I see boxes/jars for the Humane Society, the Lexington Rescue Mission, etc., I'll put cash in those, but it hadn't occurred to me to prove I do that.

Taking that attitude with me is crass and silly. Granted it's a crass and silly thing for me to do, but, well, I'm weird.

If you saw me with a sign would you drop a buck in my can? Or are you not the truly charitable sort?

RichieLaw: Can someone look to see if there is a twitter name of "JoeBidensTransAm"?

If not, register it, and maybe we can have it tweet about how much it misses Joe or something. Also include funny/outrageous things Joe has said and done.


Omg, that's a great idea. I wish i knew how to use twitter. It just seems dumb to me, but i'm a facebook addict, so hey, whatever...

I thought that was possible, but I bet it comes back for real, too - when I saw yours (did you do two? There are at least 2) I checked again, and Fark was never specifically mentioned in the publicized material (that I saw).

sethen320: 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?"

farking. Priceless.

Why do you assume everyone who is saying wtf is conservative? You do realize there are more than two teams, right?


This is Fark. Criticizing a Democrat or idea that benefits a Democrat automatically makes you a Republican and will elicit a "SO VOTE REPUBLICAN!" response. Apparently they cannot believe some people think for themselves, don't blindly vote for a party and do not think of politics as a sports team.
