That link needs to be on the main page as an example of the ouroboros.

Smartest thing Romney could do would be to throw in cash. Bet he won't though.

good work....just need this to get on tv tonight on MSNBC with their coverage. If it hits Maddow's show we may have the money by end of the weekend.

orezona: This is definitely going to happen.

Over 10% in the first few hours? At that rate by this time next week the goal should be reached.

Awesome.


Hopefully it'll pick up some momentum and we also get a news bump on Monday. Certainly this is wonderful stuff for Stewart or Colbert. Colbert's a huge troops guy, so maybe he'll be interested.

RichieLaw... add some higher-end "Perks" amounts to the Indiegogo. Some folks just like to make sure everyone can see that they gave more than the Fark paupers. (ie Add a $25, $50, $100, $1000, etc).

No need to actually have a Perk, other than bragging rights that they donated so much.

Wow, don't read the comments on the Yahoo page. Total buzzkill.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: If enough money is raised, you should find a wounded veteran whose dream was to drive a Trans Am, but can't anymore because of missing limbs and whatnot, then retrofit the car so that he or she is able to drive it. Then try to arrange it for Joe to personalize or present it in some way to that veteran.


O.M.G. this bisexual Republican Farkette loves you! That is an awesome idea.

Or the charity route - I'm in either way.

Should we promise some things from OBA or his book?

Promise of professional photos of the event (if it happens)?

Over $1000 you get to get your photo taken in the car?

sex0r: Yes, let's contribute to buy a hack, millionaire politician, who gives less to charity than I do and who hasn't done an honest days work since he's been in any type of elected office, a TransAm.

Are you people farking retarded?


No, I think the people would have to get out of mom's basement to bang lindsey lohan.

No, like Joe I meant what I said. Apparently this is really chapping their asses and I read some really shiatty things. You can imagine. Oh well, though, nothing donating more to charity to spite them can't fix!

I think the butthurt posts here jealous of Biden's imminent Trans-am-ery are helping drive up donations.

Over 1600 comments and $2800 raised already? Behold the power of FARK.

Waited too long to claim my beer cozie, but a donation here will do for the next best thing.

I wouldn't promise anything like getting your photo taken with the car. Maybe a photo of the car (if it materializes) at $1000+. Just post them with tongue-in-cheek references to Joe Biden. "Perks" can chew in to the fundraising quickly, and since it's for charity, you want as much going directly there as possible.

You guys are getting pretty tiresome. RTFA. BBHI is benefiting from this. And I give plenty of money to other charities too, farkwad.

Can Quakers use the internet? I thought it was, like, forbidden for them.

You're thinking of the Amish. And the other oatmeal.

See, another poster favorited with urine yellow 3.

Have you noticed the total for charity is already $3,000 in less than 12 hours? Of course you did and you hate it.
 
2012-10-12 06:35:52 PM  
almost $3K!

I have no but hurt. I just think it's funny you guys have almost raised as much in a few hours as Biden donates in one year. With over $300k in income.

If Joe Biden has his picture taken with the Trans Am before its sold for charity I will devote my life for Biden 2016 if he runs. No joke.

Biden is the one who will take offense. How will he answer when someone says "some people on the internet raised more money as a joke then you donated in one year. "
 
2012-10-12 06:39:20 PM

I really want to see it get to $3K before I leave work.

Hopefully Biden will donate. It looks like he has trouble finding worthwhile causes. WIth his $5k in donations last year.
