Seriously, can you guys switch to a different coffee/cookies picture? I want them so bad and I don't have chocolate sprinkles to make any. If you're gonna offer haters cookies, make them sub-par cookies.

fearmongert: legalgus: 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.

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?


So are you guys donating the money straight to charity now, or still going through with the whole "buy a car, pay a grand or 2 in sales tax, then auction it off, possibly for less money than it was purchased for" thing?

I truly believe we will either hit our goal, and then decide it, or we will NOT hit the goal, and as promised, it goes STRAIGHT to the charities....

They said in the FAQ (that's been on the link since day 1) that if they don't reach the goal, they'll split the money equally among the 4 charities.

If they do raise the money, I'm not sure. I think the car shouldn't be sold until after the election. Then Joe could take it for a quick cruise, or (god willing) wash it and take pics, and not worry about political fallout.

I think the level of famethey can attach to the car, and the value it adds, is what matters. If I were in charge of any major Internet based company, I would give them more than they paid for it. It's charitable, giving you lots of PR, and it's totally ridiculous.

/it annoys me that SuperPACs are OK, but driving a trans am for a month for charity is completely off-limits.

The *car* isn't going directly to charity. If we raise enough funds, we'll buy the car and auction it
off - all of the proceeds of which will go directly to those charities.

If we DON'T raise enough, then whatever we DO raise will be split evenly and will go directly to
those charities.

WIN / WIN

We are trying to find the best way to do something good. At this time of year especially at this time of year there are lots of fundraisers. Charities are having to find different ways to compete for people's hard-earned donations.

Yes, it started as a joke, but it quickly became something that could be fun and helpful. What we're hoping is that Mr. Biden will pose with the car (or some other way to uniquely identify it as "the internet meme car for charity" like sign it, for instance), then when it goes up for auction the asking price will be much, much more than if everyone just sent money separately.

Regardless if the auction doesn't hit six figures, four very worthwhile charities will be getting donations and a few people will have spent their time doing something useful.

* clears throat *

Silence in the classroom please....

a. if we don't reach our goal, whatever money we DO receive gets split equally among the four charities.

b. If we DO reach our goal, we're going to buy the Trans Am, HOPEFULLY (and this may be wishful thinking,
but with enough public support behind it, I think we can make it happen) get Biden and the car to mug for
the cameras together.

THEN we'll auction the car off - the thought being that the publicity generated and the fact that it's "Joe's
car" will bring in a higher bid than the car might otherwise be worth. Whatever we receive for the car
(less auction fees, etc...) will be split evenly among the four charities

c. None of us are receiving any compensation for our time and efforts. We're doing it solely for charity, for
the lulz, and for the chance to bring an internet meme to life

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?


No. He didn't it explained again. legalus is just a miserable troll (I hate using that word). He's one who should simply never be engaged.
Whereas halfie, silly jesus, etc. are actually pretty decent people who have a hard time breaking out of character; I'll bet they're actually cheering this and probably even donated a buck or more.

Keep up the good work guys!! Just checking in while I had a moment; about to go get my sleeve finished!!! Yay!

1) It's a reference to an Onion article about a shirtless Joe Biden washing his Trans Am in the Whitehouse driveway.
2) We're hoping we can get Biden to take a pic with it or something, but he's not getting the car. So we're not really buying it for him.
3) The charities will get the money. Joe Biden can act as a force-multiplier by making the Onion article true and really making some money for the charities. But no matter how you slice it, the money is going to charity.

Howdy. I have couple minutes and wanted to pop in. I see we're targeting (mostly) comedians/comic actors.

I just realized that, in all if our tweet-list-making, we've failed to identify a VERY obvious target:

Daniel Tosh

He's funny, he has 6.9 MILLION followers on the Tweet Machine and he has a show that is focused solely on stuff from the Internet.

Sarah, would you consider adding him to the Tweet schedule for tomorrow? He's a west coast guy, so if he were added to the end of the schedule @ 7-8 PM EDT, that'd be 4-5 PDT.

What do you think, Sarah? Others?

Sarah, would you consider adding him to the Tweet schedule for tomorrow? He's a west coast guy, so if he were added to the end of the schedule @ 7-8 PM EDT, that'd be 4-5 PDT.

What do you think, Sarah? Others?


I'm not one of the twitter-ers but i think he would be a good person to target. Probably should contact the show as well.

Howdy. I have couple minutes and wanted to pop in. I see we're targeting (mostly) comedians/comic actors.

I just realized that, in all if our tweet-list-making, we've failed to identify a VERY obvious target:

Fark hates him because he made a joke about a woman getting raped.


While some Farkers may have a bone to pick with him over an incident that happened over the summer, and I am in no way defending what he said, if we can get 1 - just 1 - RT re: GJTB out of him, that reaches 6.9 million tweeters/twitterers/twatters.

He has featured silly stunts like GJTB on his show, which is currently in a taping schedule. If he were to feature GJTB on Tosh.0 in a "please help the kind folks at GJTB out by donating" light, think of the good it will do.

All this can come from one guy.

Also, not previously having been aware of the whole rape joke fiasco because it happened while I was in the field for two weeks at the time, I decided to check into it and found this short article from Time Magazine about it.

Not sure if this was much ado about nothing or not. I don't really care, nor do I think it matters or is germane. especially since the tweets got out on Twitter, not Fark.

I think it's worth doing.

fearmongert: Sarahdiddle... can i propose Wednesday become our REDDITOR push? we have TONS pf macros and Memes now, and we can possibly win the hearts and minds of the reddit hivemind? Just a thought...


In the spirit of this post, could some of the newer memes also be put onto the facebook page? I think we need to do a facebook campaign, sometimes I feel like the only one pushing it there.

funktilious_j: legalgus: 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.

you are fuc*ing retarded. Maybe click the link and actually read what's going on before you type something that confirms that you probably suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.


This needs to be repeated?

I know we were asked to be nicer to the nay-sayersmorons who failed the reading comprehension portion of the exam, but the fact that this is still going on a week after the campaign began and despite every fuc*ing thread -- not to mention the donation site itself -- explaining exactly how this is is going to work ... well, it's just mind boggling.

Lulz does not mean what you think it means.

For it to be lulz, the trans am would have to be some super rare version, towed to a convention of trans am enthusiasts, and set on fire in front of them.

Stop using the word lulz please.

I originally posted this in last Monday's GJTB thread:

$0.02

Why I'm Here

1. As a veteran of our recent adventures in the Middle East, I'm here to support the Wounded Warrior Project.

2. As the brother of a gay man, I'm here to support GLAAD.

3. As someone who has seen the good work done by them first-hand in some amazingly inhospitable conditions, I'm here to support Doctors Without Borders.

4. As a friend of two wonderful women who have died from breast cancer, I'm here to support the Biden Breast Health Initiative.

5. As a human being who believes in the idea if helping his fellow man and woman, I'm here for all of these causes.

6. As a denizen of the Intarwebs and a Farker who LOVES the Uncle Joe/Trans Am meme, I'm here for the lulz.

Everyone has there reasons for being part of what we are trying to make happen with this silly, ridiculous endeavor.

If someone doesn't have the kinds of emotional and direct ties to the chosen charities that I have, that's OK.

I do, however feel a little sad for anyone who can't get into this for reason #5, or craps on others for what appears to solely be a desire to take the enjoyment out of #6.

/$0.02


I still stand by this statement.

Ok, in the absence of supervision, I am going to run the following pics by customink.

obamiconme.pastemagazine.com

i46.tinypic.com

Buttbone McGillicutty, if you repost your pic with higher resolution, I will include it.

BTW what happened to RichieLaw? who's managing the campaign?
