gunther_bumpass: This is going to totally screw up the market for used Trans Ams.


We need a 2013 throwback Trans Am called the Biden Bird. Make it happen GM!

I'd like to congratulate everyone here on being part of a grassroots organization.

Yeah. They'll probably just burn whatever money we donate. :/

That's why the car is being auctioned off to Charity... read the thing. It isn't an actual gift to Bidden, silly.

You could've used the time you took to type that post to save a homeless blind legless orphan with cancer.

JusticeandIndependence: ok who donated $2?


They alllllll did!

Thanks, I'll be here all week,
Enjoy the veal.

I have to head out for a few hours in about 10 minutes. Thanks to everyone that made this idea happen. I'm still stunned that this got legs.

Well it's a good thing it's $25K then. We don't want to be feeding people for heaven's sake!

Seriously, great idea- we're all in your debt. :)

Subby should contact Overhaulin and see if we could get a Foose car out of it, that would bring more for charity.
 
2012-10-12 05:51:06 PM  

Meanniss: Just got the call. I got a job. I can give $10 now and $10 to the campaign. This is a great day.


Good for you! Grats on the job!

We should probably raise a couple extra hundred to buy a few cases of Ass Cream to soothe the butthurt in this thread.

Jebus, just jumped to 2600....far frikkin' out.
 
2012-10-12 05:52:56 PM  
I just tweeted Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan about this. Even though it's for the lulz and a good cause, that still made me feel dirty.

\Over 2500! Yeah!

Yup. Giving $20k to charities other than the food bank is a crime against humanity.

ಠ_ಠ

Charity is charity, Bub. Want to start a food fundraiser, go right ahead and post it to Fark.

Cyclometh: mcwehrle: I've FB'd it to all of my local newsagencies on their pages.

And Cyclometh that audio is AWESOME!!!!! This is going to be greater than great!!!!

Thank you, that's incredibly kind of you to say.


It's very sincere, for several reasons:

The work all of you have done today is amazing
I got to be a small $10 part of it
My voice sounds much like a 14 year old boy with a severe adenoid issue on any type of recording, so I'm in complete awe of that as well.

*high 5s*!!

oh and

$2600!

To the Farker who just may have accidentally donated to my Fark account instead of to the more worthy cause, I offer a most sincere and bewildered thanks. You are a golden god.

Just replied- I think we should stick with this one, simply because it's already got some momentum. Hell, even @fark is following it, lol.

Gosh, it's almost as if spending money on one thing doesn't preclude spending it on another thing as well.

Next, you'll tell me things don't have to be black or white.
 
2012-10-12 05:57:25 PM  
God, the insane teeth-gnashing this is causing from the teabaggers is f*cking AWESOME. And on top of that, they come off as charity-hating assholes to boot.

Just...so...perfect.

/for future reference, freepers, the correct face-saving reaction would have been "yeah, haha, f*ck you, but here's $5 for the charity"
//but watching you dig a giant hole of sh*t for yourselves is definitely more entertaining, so carry on
 
2012-10-12 05:57:29 PM  
Any possibility of getting Biden to sign it before the auction? Has this already been suggested? I'd imagine you could get quite a bit more for the charities if he signed the hood (or allowed his signature to be imprinted), or above the door like a race car; something like that.
 
2012-10-12 05:57:47 PM  
Here's some other similar-veined charity ideas for you lovely conservatives to start so that Fark will be Fox News' style Fair 'N' Balanced.

1) Purchase helicopter for Sarah Palin so she can improve her wolf shooting skills mid-air.
2) Buy Rush Limbaugh a 30' tall elephant PEZ dispenser filled with Oxycontin and Viagra.
3) Install a Jetsons' style elevator for each of Romney's mansions.
 
2012-10-12 05:58:07 PM  

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


Indubitably.

Dat's how we roll.

That truly is the best medicine. "F*CK YOUR CHARITY EFFORTS!!!" Uhhh, okay? So you Republicans are against charity?

Heh.

The money raised goes to Doctors Without Borders?

Time to get serious here. I'll alert my contacts at Doctors Without Borders. Let's see if we can get Joe Biden to agree for a photo shoot with the Trans Am and the photo will be auctioned at the annual DWB fundraiser. The theme this year is "Transformation."

I like the idea.

Sounds like they already want to try to get him to do a photo op with The Bird (I say let him take it for a spin in the parking lot, or at least have him sit in the driver's seat and turn on the ignition), but giving him a sharpie and getting him sign the hood? Awesome. Sauce.

Someone should cross-pollinate this to Reddit (if it hasn't been already)...I bet a few of them would have a ball with this.

See if they can guilt Burt Reynolds into participating.

We should get the Onion guys to host the fundraiser to auction the car off to charity. It'll get more money that way.
