I made a couple of changes. If anyone feels that anything should be added or taken away, I'm open to suggestions.

is he trying to say getting BJs from fat girls is gay? if so i'm queer as a $3 bill.


Put me in for 'gayest gaylord mcgay in rainbow history' too. There is no known limit on blowjobs from chubby girls. None I say.

Ok, found a 1981 Trans Am video on YouTube.

Link

Any interest on putting it on indiegogo? Would need to contact poster on Youtube to see if he'd be down with us sharing.

Has "Let the Good Times Roll" by The Cars playing in the background as added bonus!

blowjobs from chubby girls? man, those got me through those cold, rainy and broke nights in college. And my first few years in radio.

Since it doesn't sound like Biden will actually get behind the wheel of this fly hoopdie, you lost me.
 
2012-10-13 07:57:03 PM  
what about sharing it with WH pages on FB, etc... the Biden or Obama... not putting directly on their page, but maybe as a message... let 'em at least kinda know what's started...?

LucklessWonder: FinFangFark: LucklessWonder: I missed this when it blew up yesterday. My fark activity was restricted to the Nationals game thread (which sucked). This is awesome. I wish I had some money to donate, but I bookmarked the indiegogo site, and if I get a job within the next 46 days, I'll be donating to a perk level. If not, well I'll be able to chip in a single buck.

/Unemployment sucks
//Joe MUST get the Bird
///Partisanship be damned

just pass it on via your friends lists and email.

Doing just that


I'll gladly donate $5 for you. Tell me how you want the comment to read. I've been on a 48 hour work schedule, so I'll donate in the morning for you. I'll check back in about 12hours

/I REALLY need sleep :)

Please don't respond to the threadshiatters. The best response and the one that will enrage them the most is simple, stony silence when they post.

Well, we are on Fark. I totally lol'd at SJ's comment. Nothing mean, or threadshiatting... just plain old fark snark.

BUT, outside of Fark in promotions, things need to be kept at a very low-key and respectful manner. Without anyone promoting this campaign stooping to name-calling in responses, etc.

Yeah, I trolled Yahoo comments last night. During beers 1-5 I was nice, trying to correct misunderstandings where needed. During beers 6-10, not so much. Beers 11+ I was a homicidal lunatic asshole.

2012-10-13 08:08:55 PM  
I've lost $5000 from my pay per year, my wife, who's never had to work before, had to get a part time job just so we could make ends meet and cover the skyrocketing gas, heat, electricity and taxes. With new obama taxes coming next year we're hoping the part job will be enough. My son could only score a newspaper delivery job. He's 20 and still lives at home.

I feel sorry for that idiot biden when his boss stops screwing up America.

It's really hard to be polite when they word vomit all over the comment section. The temptation to be snarky - a temptation that Fark rewards and encourages - is extremely difficult to control when alcohol is added.

Gah. I really hope this makes sense. This mead is a bit strong...

RichieLaw: I like this a lot. Seriously. Since it is your idea, why don't you submit the thread. Maybe we can ask unfreakable super nicely to green it. I would love it if we could get more of Fark involved with this.


I'm all over it. Just let me know how I can help. I let The Onion know about this yesterday, so it's on their radar, and I had dropped a note to the White House asking about gifts yesterday afternoon, but don't expect to hear back from them anytime in the next few days. I also dropped a note to a friend at the Huffington Post, so the odds are good they'll run it in the next couple days as well.

FinFangFark: Unfreakable has been on top of all this. Mucho props to him and the other powers in Mt. Farklympus


Thank you, sir. Actually, all of the admins and mods have been on this. Yesterday, punkrockgirl personally bumped this again in the evening and tweeted it. Drew's out of town at the moment, but he's in the loop that it's happening. Other admins and mods have been bumping it on FB and Twitter, too.
 
2012-10-13 08:14:39 PM

And if there's anything else we can do, please let us know.

It's so awesome how many other outlets are picking up on our charity / bringing-internet-meme-to-life drive.

If Al Jazeera picks it up, we will all have officially won the internet.

It's at $5271 right now. It'd be awesome to see it top $6k before the weekend is over.

I wonder if Uncle Joe's handlers have told him about this yet and if so, what was his reaction?

Normally, they'd issue a statement that he and his staff give a thumbs up and got a chuckle out of this. But the fact that his charities are going to benefit from this, I'd like to think he'd be a great sport about it, and join in on the fun.

That is fantastic. Thank you so much! I think the next step for now is our twitter campaign which starts tomorrow and then having a photoshop thread and caption contest. I think the plan was to have the caption contest for the photoshop....so we can have that after a photoshop is decided.

I think I speak for all of us when I say thanks! And if you feel the need to change any of our submitted headlines for humor or what-have-you, please do so.
