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."

howdoibegin: 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.

Its a good headline, but let's not start sucking each other's dicks just yet. Its good and green and all that, but the dialogical form is clunky and the setup takes too long for the punchline. A good HOTY candidate needs to "alley oop" your brain into completing the joke: like this one.

The headline is kinda predictable but with all the butthurt in the thread it's worth it.

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

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?

The Repeated Meme: 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...
