It's a scam. We're never getting those drones back.

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: So we're now using drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, the Philippines, Somalia, Mali, the US, and Niger.

Good to know.


Is that all? I thought it was more.

It makes me proud to be part of a trans-global empire.

The only two places I doubt we'd send drones are China and Russia, and that's b/c they have ICBMs. Satellites, on the other hand...

Oh, I forgot Libya. I also thought about adding Iran to the list because they've recovered drones allegedly violating their airspace, but that's more of a question mark.

Great headline. I'm sure this news will be met with great bipartisan support.

You know that part in the article where it said that the government of Niger actually asked for this?  Yeah...me neither.

American Decency Association: 11 Feb 2012  Qaddafi's son: "Niger, please?" Niger: "Oh, alright"

15 Feb 2011  Niger FA Boss: "We fear no one." Oh, please

06 Sep 2011  Actual Gaddafi quote when asking for asylum: "Niger, please?"

12 Nov 2011 Niger pleased to offer Gaddafi's son asylum

ok, im that guy


No one's saying it's an original joke. The damned joke predates Fark for fark's sake. This was a particularly well crafted execution of a particular form of comedy. It's worth noting. When did making a good joke become BAD because it wasn't completely new?

I wonder how many "Gaddafi's son says, "Niger, please" headlines ended up being redlighted?
After all, there could be only one.

/Yes... I submitted a "Niger Please?" headline too back then.

I was interested in whether or not this military action was actually welcomed and/or invited as there is no mention of Niger's government opinion, unlike the fabricated headline.  WTF does that have to do with the WAAAAAAmbulance?

It's cute that you folks think this is the first time this joke has been made in a Fark headline. (Let me google that for you ... )

It's cute that you think we care.

Is this funnier than the other 5 times a day someone says that around here?
 
2013-02-22 11:28:15 PM
So apparently there's no ECOMOG anymore to handle this? They seemed to do fine in both handling the RUF in Sierra Leone and the coup in Guinea-Bissau (though both were over a decade ago). Would be a lot better than us having to get involved, frankly.

I think you have replaced critical thinking with internet memes.  The headline was well crafted, and it does beg the question about Niger's desire for involvement.  Which is usually mentioned, or omitted, when we commence these military aid programs.  Each with it's own message.  And ... thanks for checking my signup date?

It's always never not completely unfunny when popular or at least well-known Internet memes and site-appropriate vernacular are woven into a headline or become the entire headline itself.
 
2013-02-22 11:59:08 PM
The headline is kinda predictable but with all the butthurt in the thread it's worth it.

I see the humor elitists, who all let out a singular "hmmm" laugh when they first saw the niger_please.jpg, can find nothing of value in a headline that successfully pulled off the punctuation: Niger, "Please."

Well there's a right fancy way of not saying, "sorry, I thought you were complaining against this totally awesome headline.  I'm on the hunt for people trying to disrespect this radical headline and got caught up in my official internet police doodies a little too much."
