My headline was better.

'Now you can ask that cute checkout girl for a kwickie without being rude, crude, and offensive'

Still better than "hey, give me a farking blowjob."

At least get a scratch and sniff before you get farked.

Wham, Bam, Thank You Maine!

Okay, so that's stretching it.

For most residents of Maine buying lottery tickets is their "retirement plan.

This is a problem why?

This is a manufactured controversy. Maine has many options for instant scratch tickets. I'm guessing 20. In most places they are in a plexiglass case so you you look at the denomination and manner of gaming (matching symbols, making words in a Xword grid, etc.) and each cubby for each game is numbered. INVARIABLY (ok, maybe a very few exceptions) customers ask for a ticket by number, NOT by the name of the game.

No, I don't agree, however, kudos for posting your version. I've long held that those who post "My headline was better" should let the court of public opinion decide.

because every lecher in Maine won't be asking the hot girls for a "kwikie"

that definitely won't happen.

That reminds me of when the local sports bar added a menu item called "flings". They were chicken fingers shaped like wings. I asked the manager, "Do you really want me asking your 20-year-old bar staff if I can have flings?"
 
2013-03-17 01:46:38 PM
Bravo subby. I had a much needed chuckle from that headline.
 
2013-03-17 01:49:14 PM
I like it. Less wordy than "Hold still, this will only take a minute"
 
2013-03-17 02:25:05 PM
Articles like this reinforce my belief that maybe I should dedicate my life to giving people better things to be upset about.

As semi-official Fark memes go, this one is lame as hell. The lamest, as a matter of fact.

Some people hate the R.I.P. meme. I hate this one. Might be mildly humorous if the town was actually pronounced 'Bang-her'.

I know, I know.

Replace 'Cumbies' with 'Irving' and you might pass for a Mainah.

Thanks for the compliment, I think :)

Been to Maine many times. Love the people and the way the Mainiacs talk. I have no idea why their "language" makes so much sense to me but it does. When I'm on the phone with my friend from Bangor my wife just shakes her head and asks me WTF we're saying.

Presque Isle to Bangor is like Buffalo to NYC. Did he get culture shock?

He did mention the people in Bangor move much faster than in PI if thats an indication. I told him I heard a joke that people from PI talk with their mouth's permanently open. He laughed and said it was true :)

 I've never been to PI so I have nothing to base it on but i'll take his word for it.

As a resident of the great state of Maine, let me just say that I don't give a shiat what they call those things - I'm not going to buy one because gambling is stupid and it would cut into my vodak budget.

Just saw on the BDN website they're canning the name. I'll admit I buy a scratcher every now and then. Only the 1 or 2 buck tickets, though.
