I smirked till the end, but 'At press time, buy Doritos' made me lol.  Well played, Onion, well played.

You know what's not awesome? Autoplay.

It sure is! Why, just the other day while I was painting my nails with OPI Nail Lacquer I found a very interesting article that mentioned the hottest shades for the summer! Good thing I had already picked up my bottle of OPI Nail Lacquer in fantastic fairy.

Bah, curse you!

It's like you only beat me in posting Waynes World quotes to get paid, and that is really sad.

Oh, and for those with self control issues, you can always point fark.com to 127.0.0.1 in your hosts file.

Funny idea, but the profanity was gratuitous and, like many Onion articles, it kind of beats the joke into the ground.

I never click on Buzzfeed links but I've at least paid them enough attention to include them in an mspaint project.

I sincerely hope that I'm not the only one making a conscious effort to refrain from clicking on their sponsored pile of offal.

Furthermore, sources confirmed that because people who enjoy sponsored content are obviously the hippest people around, they must also use Axe, which is by far the hippest brand of male grooming products on the market today.

I lol'd.

I don't get the hate. Drew needs beer. Featured Partners buys Drew beer. When Drew and his fellow naz...uh, modmins get enough beer, they approve links.

So in summary, No Featured Partners=No Beer for Drew=Drew not drunk enough to approve links=No one gets awesome/scary/spiffy/asinine/stupid news.

/Attn: Drew, that kind of loyality deserves a TF sponsorship, wouldn't you say?

Or turn your speakers off / mute your system. I always have my system muted unless I plan on listening to something. You don't try to sneak out of your driveway at midnight with the stereo cranked so don't try to browse at work with your speakers turned up.

While it doesn't bother me that Fark is using this to pay the bills (and I definitely appreciate the warning in the headline), it pisses me off that they're putting in the same article every day for months. "Worst Teenager on Instagram" hits my eyeballs every day now. You sold it months ago. We get it. But I don't need to be shown it every day for the rest of my life.

A set of headphones works wonders as well....

I'm surprised this thread hasn't already devolved into a biatchfest about Fark featured partner links, seeing as we can't comment on those links.

I was going to post the same thing. Turn the volume 1 click from all the way down, then mute it. IT'S NOT THAT COMPLICATED.

Fark should allow comments on all Sponsored Links so we can further inform the public of just how awesome it all is - from Fark sharing these really cool sponsored content links designed to get eyes on products to the TFers who can really drum up excitement for the sponsored products so that by the time a Sponsored Link goes green, Liters will be frothing at the mouth trying to figure out how to spend money as fast as possible on any product presented to them in Slideshow/Autoplay format.
 
2013-05-21 11:41:27 AM  
What I don't get is that the sponsored stuff that shows up here is so.....just farking old.  I'm still not sure if Drew is playing some kind of sick joke on Buzzfeed.

Super Chronic: Funny idea, but the profanity was gratuitous and, like many Onion articles, it kind of beats the joke into the ground.


With the Onion you really only need to read the first few lines. The rest is always them just repeating the joke over and over

I did once to see what they were selling. It was an article regurgitated from tumblr photosets. God I farking hate the human centipede that is internet entertainment media...
