well, if you are going to be 500 pounds, you  might as well do something memorable while you are still alive.

That's all well and good but a good defense requires a strong offense.  As somebody who knows the making of napalm I'd like to offer my services to throw flaming napalm on the WBC members.

Fakety fake fake.  Fred Phelps doesn't have a son named David.

This post needs to be inserted at the top of the thread.
The Onion is one thing.  This is more along the lines of misinformation than mockery or satire.

Fake.

This smacks of a goofy storyline from pro wrestling, so unfortunately a lot of people will buy it.

Also, the second half of the article is the good part.

To the idiot press,

Stop paying attention to these morons and they'll have nothing to do. You've seen WBC's idiotic sideshow and it never changes and if you'd stop interviewing them and showing up at whatevers they "protest," they'd have no reason to continue and would die off and realize they have absolutely no life beyond this to go back to.

Do everyone a favor and publish their names/photos/addresses so no sane person will ever give them the time of day or a job and ignore them.

Thanks,
Everybody

That's the danger of clicking Wikipedia links. First you read one article, then another, and another, and another...

Pretty soon you're editing an article on Star Trek: TNG and donating money to Jimmy Whales.

Very much.

Did a fat bastard sit on a Phelps? I'd say the question of verisimilitude is academic at best, you homers.

Not academic.  I know the actor.  (I randomly clicked on the fark link and saw a familiar face.  At first, I thought he was doing the interview.  Then I saw him speak, and realized he was playing the role.)

As an artist, I understand where you're coming from.  But I don't want people to get their hopes up.  I'm a Topekan. I see the WBC on a weekly, if not daily, basis.  As much as I wish something like this would happen, it sadly hasn't.  My dear friend took one for the team by playing the part of a "Phelps" and suffering under the rather large burden that brought.  (Pun intended...)

there's suffering for your craft, and there's having a three foot wide stripe of butt stank smashed on to your body...wow.  mad props.

You and me at least.  The most pathetic part is that it all appears to be a guerrilla marketing campaign for a crappy website, Leviathan and all.

It's just a commercial for their crucifixion. Nothing real about it.

Egalitarian: In his "Bill on Capitol Hill" rap, he looks like Weird Al in I'm Fat.

That being said, I'm glad he nakedly chased a Phelps clan member out of a trailer.



That song is awesome!

Can't find the bigger one. I'll keep looking. I might have the original on the computer I captioned it on. It's been a few years since i did that, so odds are not real good. It might take a bit, though.

That was not there initially.  It was purported as actual news.

As the content goes, that they were trolling a W. Baptist member, it was believable.  Any "obvious" part was cluing the audience in that they were setting up the W. Baptist guy, and as that is how they do sound, he was convincing.

It only got revealed here because a few people knew other facts and shared them.  It's like me saying "I like Pizza" or "I just took a big shiat."  Yeah, I FOOLED you, even though there was no reasonable thing to doubt.  No, I didn't fool or troll you, I told a simple lie that may as well be true for all that it matters or differs from reality.
 
2013-03-29 06:00:50 PM  
For all the "let's ignore the bastards" folks, I'd like to ask y'all why they stepped their shiat up to picketing military funerals.

It's because they were already getting ignored only picketing their first target.

Yeah, y'all have a valid point and it's cool.

However I'd also like to ask why the heck the rest of us can't have some lulz at their expense with stunts like this?

Moar pranks to drain their WAAHH LAWSUIT coffers dry and send every judge in the land off in gales of laughter would be swell.

Kittypie070: lulz at their expense with stunts like this


It would maybe be a good idea to read the whole thread.

It wasn't a stunt/practical joke.  It was just bad sketch "comedy" and Daily Fail put it out as truth.

The only way it would be lulz-worthy is if it actually happened.  It was believable only because they're so easy to impersonate, what with them being bat shiat crazy.  If it had been delivered for what it actually was, I could appreciate the humor in the impersonation and found it deserving a "meh, they got it right", but as it stands I just find it annoying and shoddy.

Just thought I'd try to get the point across again because not reading the thread, well, it's grown quite common.  I bit at first as well, though I was slow about it and many posts were made while I typed.

8shrugs*

Still wish it were true.

Tosh.0 did an interview with a couple of these guys(WBC), kinda gave them a hard time.  Even if you don't like him I'd check it out.
