Why all the anger? It's a fun idea. If you like Joe, there's no reason not to have some fun. If it bothers you so much, start your own donation page to buy Romney a f*cking personality or something.

Cyclometh: RichieLaw: Cyclometh: RichieLaw: Cyclometh: RichieLaw: Perk $5: Knowledge that you contributed to making an internet meme come true.

Perk $10: Joe Biden will slam a Coor's Lite in your honor while ripping the sleeves off of his button-down. (Need a description) - Was thinking of, "Not really, but if there is enough interest, maybe we can convince Uncle Joe to chug a beer in your honor. Pictures to be posted all over the internet, of course."

Any more?

Perk $50- your name inscribed on a cassette of Night Ranger to be included with the vehicle (limit 10).

Is this feasible?

Well, maybe a CD. A cassette would be hard to find. And by "inscribed" I had in mind a label or something like that. I mean, this is all for fun anyway, the perks should reflect the silliness.

True. Maybe we could get a mix-tape/cassette of songs from the year the trans-am was made. Limit it to like 50?

Gotta be careful about copyright; I think we should only include purchased CDs, maybe a "greatest hits" collection of some of the artists of the time in line with the theme. The perk could be having your name included in a liner insert along with the CD?


Just remember, any cassette left in a car for over a month turns into "Best of Queen."

This suggests an awesome web video someone needs to make now: The Professor and the Douche.

Obama and Biden ride around the country in Biden's Trans-Am. Obama bores people with detailed explanations of his policies while Biden mugs and hits on all the ladies.

So. Pitch so far:

Unfortunately, not everything on the internet is true, no matter what the internet tries to tell you. Over the past four years one of the internet's favorite political meme's is of "Uncle Joe Biden." It started with an Onion article (http://www.theonion.com/articles/shirtless-biden-washes-trans-am-in-w hite-house-dri,2718/) which poked fun at the Vice President because of his blue collar mannerisms and forthright speech when discussing...well...anything.

Joe Biden has made a career about speaking what he means, regardless if it is in his best political interest or if it is the "politically correct" thing to say. Because of this he endures jokes regarding his "gaffes" and verbal miscues and America (and some of the rest of the world) laugh and chuckle about this homer Vice President of ours.

All the while, Joe Biden has calmly and quietly been an incredible Vice President. He was one of the first politicians to publicly embrace gay marriage (http://articles.latimes.com/2012/may/06/nation/la-na-biden-gay-marria ge-20120507) and may have been personally responsible for President Obama coming out in favor of gay marriage and the subsequent change in the Democratic Party's platform.

In order to let Vice President Biden know just how much we appreciate them, while also making a very silly part of the internet come true (we are the internet after all); let's buy Uncle Joe a Trans Am like one that is featured in the Onion article linked to above. It's hilarious, it's awesome and gosh darnit, it's something that we can talk about in addition to the cat pictures and rage comics.

Now, if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome and cannot be given to Vice President Biden, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off.

All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.

Regardless if it is to Joe Biden or to charity, maybe Joe Biden will even wash it on the White House lawn.

**Im wondering if we should just do this straight up for charity....I sincerely doubt he'll be able to accept it.

I f-ing love The Onion...this kills me everytime:

Dressed in a slightly ripped Lynyrd Skynyrd T-shirt, Biden tapped the top of an Icehouse tallboy, cracked it open, and then informed the 20,000 people in attendance that while the economy is no longer hemorrhaging jobs as it was in 2008, nothing, "not even that little trip I took to Thailand in '92," could ever live up to the unforgettable months of June through August 1987, when "the skirts were short, the brews were cold, and you couldn't walk 2 feet without stepping into some grade-A tang."

Last Version of the Pitch:

Joe Biden loved his Trans Am. As soon as it reached about 40 degrees, in Scranton, PA. Ole Joe would pull the cover off of his beloved beauty and spend hours detailing her immaculate curves. He'd often be overheard murmuring how sweet his,"Bird" was, which was in complete opposite to his normally gruff demeanor. It also made certain Senate Foreign Relations Committee meetings very awkward.
Senator Biden, now Vice President Biden, was always known for his fiery and passionate speech and mannerisms. But when he looked at the Bird, he'd hitch up his jorts, rip off of his shirt sleeves and chug a sixer of Ice House. It was love.

Then came the Great Recession. Biden tried to maintain his Trans AM through 2009, but with the soaring gas prices and the Republican's pressure to destroy everything that was General Motors, he was unable to do so. He sold it to a young man about to go to war in Iraq. There were tears in his eyes when he gave the Bird away. But he knew she would be in a better place.

Unfortunately, not everything on the internet is true, no matter what the internet tries to tell you. Over the past four years one of the internet's favorite political meme's is of "Uncle Joe Biden." It started with an Onion article (http://www.theonion.com/articles/shirtless-biden-washes-trans-am-in-w hite-house-dri,2718/) which poked fun at the Vice President because of his blue collar mannerisms and forthright speech when discussing...well...anything.

Joe Biden has made a career about speaking what he means, regardless if it is in his best political interest or if it is the "politically correct" thing to say. Because of this he endures jokes regarding his "gaffes" and verbal miscues and America (and some of the rest of the world) laugh and chuckle about this homer Vice President of ours.

All the while, Joe Biden has calmly and quietly been an incredible Vice President. He was one of the first politicians to publicly embrace gay marriage (http://articles.latimes.com/2012/may/06/nation/la-na-biden-gay-marria ge-20120507) and may have been personally responsible for President Obama coming out in favor of gay marriage and the subsequent change in the Democratic Party's platform.

In order to let Vice President Biden know just how much we appreciate them, while also making a very silly part of the internet come true (we are the internet after all); let's buy Uncle Joe a Trans Am like one that is featured in the Onion article linked to above. It's hilarious, it's awesome and gosh darnit, it's something that we can talk about in addition to the cat pictures and rage comics.

Now, if for some reason this awesome gift is too awesome and cannot be given to Vice President Biden, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off.

All proceeds will be distributed to the Biden Breast Health Initiative, Doctors Without Borders, the Wounded Warrior Project and GLAAD.

Regardless if it is to Joe Biden or to charity, maybe Joe Biden will even wash it on the White House lawn.

Prohibited uses:
No charity or cause funding.
Examples of prohibited use include raising money for the Red Cross, funding an awareness campaign, funding a scholarship, or promoting the donation of funds raised, or future profits, to a charity or cause.


It is NOT charity - it is PROTECTED POLITICAL SPEECH.

We want this to happen because we want to see what the public perception/reaction will be. This is political theater. This is protected by the goddam bullshiat Citizens United ruling. We could buy the car in the name of the Joe Biden Is A Regular Guy Media Manipulation Trust, which could then "give" the car to Biden in accordance with its to-be-written trust instruments. IF he can't accept it, then the trust either gives the car to some non-profit or sells it and gives the money away. Or Biden could take the car after he leaves government service, maybe. But if we call the car, and the giving of the car, "political advertising" then we should be in the clear and even if we're not it could make an interesting legal shiat-storm.

Biden follows true to form, and washes the car right there on the White House lawn. Sans shirt. Only he isn't flabby, and while not rocking a six-pack, does seem to be in reasonable shape. Biden's wife brushes hair in mirror and applies makeup. Auction goes. Biden stomps everyone and wins. And keeps the car at the White House while blasting loud ass 80s rock from it.

It really has nothing to to with the debate itself, just that it's a prime opportunity to make an Onion headline come true and send all the money to charity in the end.

Really? Because I have a hard time differentiating between reality and Onion articles these days.


And a picture of the real Joe Biden washing his new Trans Am in the White House driveway will be identical to the Onion Joe Biden washing his Trans Am in the White House driveway... and then the timelines shall converge into one, and then we shall know that the Apocolypse is surely upon us.

Step 1) Read the original Onion article about Joe and his Trans Am.
Step 2) Imagine Joe Biden actually washing a white 1981 Pontiac Trans Am (Daytona 500 Pace Car Edition, with custom gold snowflake wheels), shirtless, on the White House grounds
Step 3) Know that you helped make that moment happen
Step 4) Know that you also helped out a number of good charities

If these steps don't work, then you're just never going to get it. Sorry. Some people love the (completely fake) legend of Chuck Norris. Some don't. Same thing with this.

Absolutely. It was the administration that sunk Pontiac. Not the fact that Pontiac cars were so disposable, at one point they came in a roll with perforations so that you could tear your next Sunfire off and have a clean edge.

I loved Pontiac. I loved Saturn also. I blame Obama and his little Biden guy that they are no longer in business. Nothing like the government taking over your business.

USA Prime Credit Peggy: VTGremlin: RichieLaw: I like this. Perks updated.

The $50 seems to promise something you can't deliver. The other ones are fine, but that one may cause people to donate $50 just so they can biatch that you didn't keep up your end of it.

Maybe a disclaimer that all "Perks" are not to be taken seriously. Or somesuch.

Unless you include "$5000 perk: you get to drive the beast to meet the president!"


I thought I made it pretty evident that those perks weren't real...I honestly dont think a disclaimer is necessary at this point....

So go start a thread for a good cause. We'd donate. Or maybe not, since it's you. Perhaps make an alt and try it.

If your intention was to promote other threads for charitable causes, here's a thought. As a very old adage states, you get far more flies with honey than vinegar. Your presentation of "that's all I was trying to say" smacks of dishonest attention whoring.

Twice Banned: Good for you. How does it feel to out do Biden in just a few hours?


Personally, pretty farking good. Especially when most of us realize this isn't about Biden specifically. It's not for his gain. It's not to make him look better.

It's a fun, grassroots, charity motivated thing that spontaneously erupted from the mind of a fellow farker. Today, instead of sorting derp into the "Troll" and "Disturbed Individual" bins... farkers who spend time on the politics tab did something small that makes the world a better place. Personally, it's stuff like today that makes me fall in love with Fark again... and I've been with the ol' gal for many years (I've got a fark member number lower than the cost of Uncle Joe's Trans Am). So whine all you want, sonny... the rest of us are going to bask in the feeling of doing something that damn near approaches performance art but helps people.

I'm not arguing Mr. Biden's charitable nature, only you are. We're having fun by saluting the perception of his down to earth philosophy by giving to charity in honor of that. That is all.

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.

Rock-star caliber work, sir!

You, RichieLaw, and Fark have done the Internet proud this day !

Thank you for the memory-jog!

Don't forget Hack Patooey (he's the subby and came up with the idea) and coeyagi, who's working on the video even as we speak. :)


Thank you!

Yes, thanks to Hack Patooey and coeyagi, too!

/and no Farker was left behind that day

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

One butt-hurter in the yahoo news story claims we have 23,000,000,000 unemployed. That's tough times when you have 23 billion people unemployed on a planet of 7 billion or so.

Now, Uncle Joe won't be able to accept this gift. He has these pesky laws and regulations and political-y things to deal with. Take into consideration his epicly large personality and stunning chompers, he probably wouldn't be able to drive the Trans AM without causing a mass outpouring of Conservative Tears. That being said, the internet will still purchase the car and auction it off for charity.

Bah! I want him to actually have it. People used to give gifts to officials all the time. I watched something where some guy would make a huge throne thing out of antlers and give one to each incoming president.

The charity thing is all good and great, and probably the way it will go, but I would rather actually give it to him as a gesture from us Internet-Americans.

Save your money folks.


For what? For $5 I couldn't get in to see a movie about it, much less have any affect on the political landscape.
