A note from Unfreakable:

I don't really look at this as a Democrat thing or a Republican thing or a political thing, I consider this an Internet thing. The same as when Fark helped send a crowbar and a Half-Life strategy manual to the scientist at the LHC that looked like Gordon Freeman in one of the publicity photos.

A lot of people are saying, "Hey, he can afford to buy his own car!" Of course he can. This isn't about helping Joe because he can't afford a car, it's about making a silly Internet meme become reality, and also to help some charities. If you really want to discuss politics, I'd ask that you go over to the politics tab; there are a lot of current stories there that you can discuss. This one is about having fun and doing something neat. If you don't want to join in, you don't have to--that's your choice. I'd just ask that you find a different thread that's more to your liking.

To all of you Farkers that have helped in any way, whether it was contributing with money, or time, or organizing any of this, or helping share the word on your Facebook wall or tweeting it--YOU FREAKING ROCK. Thank you for what you've done, and hopefully what you'll continue to do. This is awesome and everybody who has had a hand in helping to set this up or keep the momentum going is fantastic. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

It hasn't failed.. we have $14,000.00 going to four worthwhile charities... how can THAT be called a FAIL?...
also, someone contacted the Give Joe a Bird thread about the soup kitchen Ryan fiasco, and it raised over $10,000 for them through Farks efforts.... Stupid is as stupid does, but there are some REAL LIFE ramifications here.... Don't be a downer....

It does! I've seen a few over the last week. But, I'm also easily discouraged, so I go with the whole "kill em with kindness and let em eat static" ploy.

What I find humorous is that so many Farkers that don't like/agree/just want to troll will click on this thread just to come in and biatch. I'd like to meet the gigantous biggus dickus that is holding a gun to their head and FORCING them to click on this link out of the HUNDREDS, nay THOUSANDS of other links on Fark they could go to.

Some people just want to try to shiat on a cookie, no matter what.

Sad, their lives must be, yes.

You are too late. Even if we don't raise another red cent we still have raised fourteen large for four great charities.

I can't fathom the mindset that leads to the desire for other people to fail at helping people out. I amhonestly sad for you.

$14,000 for four charities.... and a branch off of this raised $10,000+ for a soup kitchen? I think it's a GREAT waste of time...

/how do YOU waste YOU'RE time?
// I waste mine on FARK

Why do you continue to post this Biden crap? First off, most charities do not want an overpriced used firebird. Second, they can use direct cash contributions. Third, Biden is a fat cat jerk of the first order.

Cyclometh:

I did want to tell you the latest voice is awesome! Jeez, you could get a bible out of a granny's panties with that voice!

Also, there are a couple of anonymous donations that are from my friends, which I'm proud of. One of them came and lurked, and ran away saying they "don't have a thick enough skin" for FARK. US? The lover and cuddlers of the internet??? Who knew?? LOL

I'm also heavily sinus drugged and alcoholing, so take that as you will

I agree this is all pretty stupid. The guy is probably worth more than anyone donating money. Kind of like buying Warren Buffet a money clip...

It's NOT Biden crap.... it is a charitable fundraiser that MIGHT involve Biden someday... kinda like a bikini carwash, or the old style "How many people can we fit in a Volkswagon?" fundraisers done earlier... Make a meme real for charitable causes... Please don't be dense... There are $14,000 in REAL funds that are going to be given to REAL charities!.. To help REAL people and organizations....How can you hate that?

because he/she/it is too lazy to find out what we're really doing. They can go over there with the rest, get a nametag, and have a cookie.

Some people live to kick a puppy, spit on a homeless person, and still think they're better/smarter/faster than everyone else.

We call them derpers. And give them cookies.

They are going to sell the Trans Am and give the proceeds to charity. It's a fund raising gimmick like a walk-a-thon.
You didn't really need to have that explained to you, did you?

They come in asking for attention, I give it to them, and a cookie worth as much as their comments. Then I ignore them.
