I thought it was because he was dead and just a frozen head right now that's being used for batting practice?

Oh wait, different Ted Williams.

Keep you head down, Ted. The only reason Americans like an underdog is the pleasure they get from kicking it when things start to go well.

R.I.P. Ted Williams

Because his true-life story is nothing more than a human interest fluff piece used by news networks to keep them from doing news stuff, which is really hard.

Next up, "American Idol" fever is sweeping the nation, followed by an interview with "The Following" mega-star Kevin Bacon!

Is he just doing Kraft? I thought I'd heard him on a couple other commercials lately.
 
2013-05-31 12:00:49 PM  
I thought it was because who gives a fark?
 
2013-05-31 12:02:25 PM  
Glad to see he's still moving upward. The world needs more Teds.
 
2013-05-31 12:03:50 PM  
The article says he'll record your personal voicemail greeting for $19.95, what a steal!

Ted,  I have an old 5hp outboard motor and I need a head gasket. Sears told me to go fark myself. How about hooking me up?
 
2013-05-31 12:06:10 PM  
The rent is still too damn high!
 
2013-05-31 12:07:14 PM  
sounds like republicans would LOVE this guy: used his god given abilities to overcome extreme poverty and is now living the american dream without asking for handou...oh, he's a negra. never you mind

I'm just gonna to do what's sensible, I'm gonna file for unemployment. Then I'm gonna try to get a job at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, because they got an excellent corporate structure and they give you the tools to be your own boss.

He does personalized voicemail messages?  Think I'll get one for my phone.

Pretty sure my EiP if you want to mail me any suggestions for what he should say....
 
2013-05-31 12:17:07 PM  
I read that headline and even though it said "voice" i still read "face" and thought it was about that guy who always gets arrested for huffing paint, even when I was reading it I was like wow he is pretty with it for a guy who inhales paint, no brain damage at all.

That isn't that bad a charge for a personalized audio recording.  Try hiring a person for a personalized service for under twenty bucks.

i thought we all knew he was a bum with an addiction problem. It's hard to change that ethic.

Ivory: What does your nonprofit do?

Williams: We raise money to help struggling shelters. We provide them with sheets, soap, washer and dryers (among other things).

Nice.

I'd prefer a very drunk Katt Williams. Maybe Bon Quiqui.

I heard an interesting statistic lately that 40% of homeless teens are LGBT.

I read somewhere he had relapsed initially.

I'd say that makes sense, but I can't accept it emotionally so I'm going to either kick you out of the thread or scare you into running away.

And yet here you are commenting in the thread about it. Keep up the struggle against those personal demons of yours, and eventually you can discover your true self.

He looks just like the Cat from Red Dwarf.

He did, that's when Dr. Phil was pursuing him.  He went into a different program and that seems to have worked out for him.  He undoubtedly got a nice advance for his book, too and has a lawyer/agent who looks out for him.  When I think about what a shiatstorm this whole thing could have been, that he's living a quiet life is a good thing.

a thoughtful person would be able to tell the difference between caring about this guy's story after the initial feelgood-ness of it and caring enough about a thread about why we don't care about him anymore. Luckily, you're not such a person
 
2013-05-31 01:27:40 PM  
$19.95??? That IS a good deal !!
 
2013-05-31 01:43:26 PM  
I am going to make him be my work voicemail default greeting.

Then when people come to my office and actually meet me for the first time I will watch their faces with secret joy.
 
2013-05-31 01:45:56 PM  
Nothing fark worthy? Good. That means he is doing well.

"F" Ted Williams!  He can go pound sand and beg for change on the street corner again!  SCREW HIM!!!!  He's nothing but an F'n criminal!!!  He has a background full of crime including Fraud, Theft, Intent to Deceive, etc!  And Kraft Foods gives him a huge voice deal for their commercials?  REALLY?  If I had just a TENTH of what he has on my background check there's NO WAY in hell I would get hired by Kraft Foods!  So Kraft Foods can also go take a hike and shove your mac n cheese up each other's arses!!!  Ted Williams - what a fregin joke!!!!!  Go back to your sewer life of crime!!!!

Did he screw you out of a honeybun or something?

Considering that most of the news on Fark are about morans, Ted is doing it right.

See, you piss in the middle of one playground and you end up like this guy.

"I am on an upsurge; I have two vehicles and I am currently working for KRAFT Foods, and I'm doing the speaking circuit. So all in all, I'd say my life has changed completely."


So he's got a city place and a vacation home.  Not bad.

Keep on rockin', Ted.

Good to see you are back to three steps forward.

Some nice, white cheddar to go with your Mad Dog?

You shouldn't have ruined your voice with the whiskey and blowjobs.
