Don't forget the free bottles of Coke, brought to you by America's finest commercial businesses!

Too bad they're not actually dropping Martha Stewart...
2001-11-22 10:44:17 PM  
Abdul! Faziz! Mahira!
Gather round the roasted goat!

This whole 'look how they don't have food' joke is getting old.
2001-11-22 10:53:11 PM  
Well, if the "look how they don't have food" joke is getting old, then...

...the terrorists have already won.
2001-11-22 10:55:43 PM  
...scratch that -- I really didn't say that.
2001-11-22 11:06:02 PM  
How about a BOOBIES for food program?
2001-11-22 11:09:25 PM  
Hmm, many many hours of no updates and we get this?
2001-11-22 11:14:49 PM  
The problem is one of the following:

1> User submissions are really low or suck.

2> Admins are actually enjoying a real life and ignoring Fark on this holiday.

3> Slow news day, so ALL user submissions suck AND admins are enjoying the holiday.

4> Admins have a life, those who visit Fark on holiday (me included) have no life!

5> People who submit lists like this really have no life.

hey wait.....

Answer: #2 or #3

I'm #4
2001-11-22 11:23:26 PM  
Can't be #1.
2001-11-22 11:26:03 PM  
Looking at the list after I submitted it, many of those could be condensed into a shorter list:

1> Admins have a life, ignore Fark on a holiday.
2> Users visiting Fark on a holiday have no life.
3> Users must get over it, Admins will update when they get back from having a life.

I used to have a life. I remember it clearly, it tasted like chicken. But just remember, if we can't sit here, late on Thanksgiving night, wasting bandwidth, then the terrorists have already won and France will have to surrender once again because all your base are belong to us. Your time is short, prepare yourself and give generously to the pron website of your choice.

I have no idea why champagne does this to me but I do know that under normal circumstances I would not have taken so long to get it typed. Happy Turkey Day folks! Emeril is cooking now, I gotta get another glass of this wonderful Brut...

Actually Mole, you will be given special recognition in the halls of "people with no life who vistited FaRK and kept the fires burning on a night when it is considered abnormal to be doing just such a thing". We're weird, we're mutants, we were all dumb enough to enlist in that army....or something........
2001-11-22 11:39:14 PM  
hmm, gonna have to photoshop a medal with that on it! The FARK award to no-lifers!
2001-11-22 11:40:46 PM  
On the plus side of things, at least it is only 20 minutes until the usual midnight update which usually includes at least one photoshop!
2001-11-22 11:41:43 PM  
Sorry, that singular award belongs to Drew. We are simple followers of the Jim Jones Cult of People who ate the rotten applesauce to join the aliens on the comet thing.
2001-11-22 11:43:14 PM  
Gee Mole, I've NEVER been up that late to see a FaRK update, you must be some kinda weirdo....;-)
2001-11-22 11:45:35 PM  
Many farkers are lurking
2001-11-22 11:45:37 PM  
well, wait about 15 minutes and you will be up well past your parents bedtime to see one ;)
2001-11-22 11:48:29 PM  
Ah, but I am in the CST and it's not that late. And to all you lurkers out there...get busy typing or the terrorists....ah, never mind...........
2001-11-22 11:51:19 PM  
So? CST doesn't mean anything with less than 10 minutes. I will adjust my time keeping then:

At 11:00PM CST Fark usually updates, so that even HOTDOG can stay up past his parents bedtime :)
2001-11-22 11:54:46 PM  
Oh well, in 5 minutes this thread will be forgotten.
2001-11-22 11:55:40 PM  
Unless Friday is a super-slow newsday like today was, then this thread will linger around for a day or two.
2001-11-22 11:55:48 PM  
Some of these posts are hilarious, but as for the article itself....

2001-11-22 11:56:34 PM  
2001-11-22 11:59:29 PM  
Well, I'm not gonna ruin the surprise. Instead, I'm gonna get myself another glass of this wonderful Brut and watch Emeril burn something on Food TV.........night.

2001-11-23 12:01:40 AM  
1 minute past midnight! Waaaaa!

I guess admins are too full of turkey to post tonight ;)
2001-11-23 12:02:03 AM  
Crouching farker, hidden lurker...

Hotdog -- Please douse yourself in Brut and set yourself on fire. I'll call 911. Promise.

How's the petition going, farkNUT?

Cluster bombs, peanut butter and crackers, mmm that sounds like a great thanksgiving dinner!
